It only took four years and thousands of complaints but ICANN finally kills off rogue Indian domain registrar


NameCheap has automatic free WhoisGuard on every domain now anyway, so they might as well not even have whois in the first place. Same with many other registrars, of course, but at least there's a few dollars of friction there.

Whois has pretty much been dead forever, only the naive and the exceptionally idealistic put their real information in it and allow it to be open.
