Dear ICANN –
My private information is just that, private. Why is it you think you should be 
able to publish it? I am a writer and in order to protect myself I use a 
penname. You publishing my real name attached to those domains I purchased for 
my writing is an invasion of my privacy. You are jeopardizing my safety by also 
publishing my address and phone number. Why do you think this is OK? I have not 
published my address or phone number on ANY sites I use. I do not want it to be 
public knowledge. Please remove my private information from your registry 
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. 
Private information should be kept private. 
Thank you
Shirley Smuda
