This dialog sums it up. There is fundamental tension between two positions
and ICANN is being asked to come up with a reasonable compromise.
Perhaps registrars should provide the service of a PO Box address,
specifically for clients who do not wish their home address to be public.
(at a small additional cost)
Then parties with a legitimate reason to contact the registrant could be
given the details on a case -by -case basis.
