Thank you for the word.  Unfortunately, I think you're being led astray.
According to Chuck Gomes, their Director of Customer Programs: 

"Last, we constantly find ourselves having to prioritize tasks.  We have
long lists
of improvements that are planned so there is always competition for resources.
The bogus information issue has only been a big concern of a few of our
customers.  In my role as Director of Customer Programs, I try to push hard
the changes that will impact the most customers in the most effective way
possible.  I for one am not convinced that putting a lot of effort into this
problem will have any significant effect."

Furthermore, Chuck, in several weeks of exchanges, was never able to
provide a single valid reason ["because people filter on domain names"
doesn't constitute a valid reason] why they don't just enforce their
Registration Agreement and delete a domain with false information when it's
brought to their attention. 

If it's in your contract, and the violation is pointed out to
much "work" does the problem need?
