Dear ICANN –

Regarding the proposed rules governing companies that provide WHOIS privacy
services (as set forth in the Privacy and Policy Services Accreditation
Issues Policy document):

I urge you to respect internet users' rights to privacy and due process.
- Everyone deserves the right to privacy.
- No one’s personal information should be revealed without a court order,
regardless of whether the request comes from a private individual or law
enforcement agency and this could leave the website holder and their
families open to threats or similar due to misunderstandings or simply
vicious personal attacks.

Why should I, or many others, be forced to have their personal details,
especially their home address, publicised without good reason for all to
see, leaving us and our families open to possible lack of safety through an
unreasonable problem such as a complaint about our personal websites? Any
reasonable or sensible person can see that this is not feasible and could
not possibly be policed properly.

I assume that, should this complaint be ignored then you will accept total
responsibility for any/all negative actions that arise through allowing
personal information to be publicised and will accept to pay any/all
compensation claims made against you.

Private information should be kept private. Thank you.
