I run proxy sites, and I run a blog. Because of possible criminal use, and for safety reasons for me and my family, I WHOIS guard all of my proxies, and any proxy related sites.
However, since I find it unnecessary to buy WHOIS for my blog, my information is open for that. I wouldn't have a problem with that, as long as the criminal proxy users couldn't connect my proxy to my blog.
Now that they can, they can ignore the protected WHOIS on my proxy, and find all of my info on my blog, completely defeating the purpose.
This would be even more likely to happen if I ran a host, cause I definitely wouldn't use WHOIS to hide my data on a hosting domain.
WOW, this is awesome! A little scary even..
I wish there was a similar site with affiliate ids tracked as well.
Contacting the owner of the tool will do no good. The tool merely queries public DBs.
Since there are 4 categories, that's $200 to get your information removed. I think this is outrageous.
With proxies, as I said above, WHOIS becomes completely useless in protecting my information from the criminals that might use it.
There is no privacy on the Internet.
What data isn't publicly available is usually secured so weakly that it is effectively public anyway.
A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link, and the Internet has so many weak links that fixing them all seems impossible.
I like this tool in the OP, I also like the ones Will posted :)
I don't mind this info being posted in one place (site) if it's all public info anyways, why not make it easier to access.
