Talking Newbie domain registrant discovers Whois, has Twitter meltdown (Have A Great Day)

The need for the domain name industry to enforce accurate Whois is often cited by law enforcement and intellectual property interests as a consumer protection measure.

But most regular internet users haven’t got a clue that Whois even exists, let alone what data it contains or how to use it.

A study (pdf) carried out for ICANN’s Whois Review Team last year found that only 24% of consumers know what Whois is.

This stream of tweets I chanced across this afternoon, from what appears to be a first-time domain registrant, is probably more representative of consumer attitudes to Whois.

Re: Newbie domain registrant discovers Whois, has Twitter meltdown (Have A Great Day)

This is hilarious.

Wonder what the domain name was? Hopefully it's a weird porn name and Susan's last name is unusual. So when someone googles her name, "80andstillgangbanging.com" comes up as first result.

I just did a check for 80andstillgangbanging.com on uk2's site. The cart automatically adds domain privacy which you have to remove, so obviously she's a dumbass. "I wonder why that domain privacy is there? Nah, don't need it."



It's blogs like this that always have me reading Kevin's first. I see her twitter is now private. Keep up the good work Kevin.
