Re: ICANN requirement for "information refreshing"?
Is funny that both ICANN and law enforcement are trying to clean up whois information to facilitate investigative capabilities. What a crock. On paper, and in theory, having 'clean' whois data is nice, and helpful for tech problems, which is the reason I think why it's there in the first place. As if nobody thought about having a 'front man' doing a registration, or even that the Registrars will be able to truly implement such data-integrity protocols, among any other ways to muck with this info. I mean, garbage in, garbage out. Are they going to go door-to-door like censustakers to verify this info? The reality is it will never work, and besides - any smart criminal will simply use another domain name, or not even USE a domain name.....a power-user computer criminal shouldn't have problems remembering a few IP addys. If they can't, they're stupid and deserve to be caught. rick infowarrior.org > From: Martin Hannigan <firstname.lastname@example.org> > Date: Tue, 18 Jun 2002 23:51:14 -0400 (EDT) > To: Jake Baillie <email@example.com> > Cc: "Howard C.
