Aah, the wonders of dropping a site somewhere in China and forgetting about it. If spammers can do it....
If you put vague enough info into WHOIS, and host the site correctly (DNS on about seven free services ought to be enough, the actual site on a couple of round-robins pointed at things like servers overseas).
I didn't say it was ethical, but just think how much more money it costs the lawyers to try and find you.
(Which, if you lose, they'll pass on to you -- be careful).
It's about this point that I say this is why I like animals and computers and hate people.
PS: Of course, Matt, for yourself, you're posting specific customer data. But the fact that they try to blame you for it tends to only strengthen your claim.

Sooner or later someone will have the time and resources to fight them all the way- perhaps I can lend some ammo.Be very careful. After getting the serious shaft from a volkswagen dealership, I went down that path and registered goldengatevw.com and haywardvw.com, among others. I then posted a warning on them about the owners shady history and business practices ( https://matt.ethereal.net/ggvw/ ), Because of my actions, regardless of their legality or constitutional protections, I am now spending tens of thousands of dollars on legal fees defending myself from a 1.5 million dollar lawsuit. ( https://matt.ethereal.net/ggvw/mystory/ ) What I've learned about the process is that its not about who's telling the truth. It's about who's got more money to spend on lawyers. matto
