[comments-whois] potential for abuse of the WHOIS complaints procedure
My comments on the WHOIS task force report.
Re: 3.1. B. c
15 days without a response is not a sufficient time period to establish a
material breach of a registration agreement in case of an WHOIS accuracy
inquiry. This is unduly harsh on a bona fide registrant.
The accuracy complaint procedure can be abused (by competitors or other
individuals) to harrass bona fide Domain Name registrants and in the worst
case it can become a tool to rob a registrant of his/her Domain Name.
Individuals go on long holidays, can be sick or otherwise undisposed.
I would like to see the postal response period lengthened to 30 days and
oblige the registrar to send at least two warning emails to the
registrant's last known email address to help insure that unwarranted
removals from the zone file will never take place.
