I have just learned about the proposal to remove WHOIS privacy for domain 
registrants. I think it's immoral and irresponsible of ICANN that you did not 
contact all your registrants first to notify us of these new guidelines that 
were proposed by MarkMonitor and others who represent the same anti-privacy 
industries witch backed SOPA et al.

I have dozens of home-based domain names registered and I do NOT give ICANN 
permission to disclose or make available my home address and private data to 
the public.

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. 

Respect our privacy! Don't expose WHOIS data. Private information must be kept 

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Alaman
