Whilst I do not agree with Michael Purse in general, given his past business
activities, I do wholly support his sentiments in this post.

What we do not need in this country, is corporate heavy weights leaning upon
users based upon their WHOIS information for any reason. Having dealt with
such issues personally before, although not for any crime or reason, as
defined by the Supreme Court of NSW, I wholly back his comments in this
