Any Registry should make their Second Level Domain Name Registrant
information available via WHOIS.
In accordance with the RFC's dealing with SPAM, it is not acceptable for
folks to use this WHOIS data to promote the generation of unsolicited
e-mails. Already in existence are many companies helping rid the world of
SPAM with out generating more of it and I am confident balance will be
achieved in the future.
An opt-out system should never be in place to handle situations like
these: if the decision is to use the language you provided for us, I think
you must change it to an opt-in situation so no one who wants to opt-out is
included in the master list ever.
