There was a time when domains automatically hid the owners personal
information, and then suddenly that no longer was the case. You now
have to purchase that privacy for every domain you own.
When was that? I registered my first domain in the late 90s and it
was required that the personal information was provided, and appeared
on doing a WHOIS.
It may have been possible to hide the details, bit, IME at least, it
wasn't automatic.
Sorry .. I should have been more clear in what I said..
The host service I use for my domains used to hide the personal information
of their domain owners. I'm guessing because the domain was purchased
through
their service. It wasn't until at least a year or two ago that I was
notified that they'd no longer do that, but I could now purchase the privacy
through my host, so that's what I do now.
Your sig is fucked

Why did you cross post this? Why did you take no notice of GM when he,
quite correctly, told off BD for using his name in the subject line?

(I know - because you can.)

You make a lot of assumptions quite often, don't you?

My bad choice of words - you took a post from one group and reposted it
in 24hrs, where it meant nothing.

OH CRAP ... that was one of those posts that I got an error because the
references line was too long. I had to save it .. remove some
references - resave it .. then choose the server and select the ng
again. I thought I picked the right group it came from.

Thanks for catching that, you're the only one that did.

I have suitably eaten my words now, I see that in recent posts you are
using your surname. I jumped in too soon.
