    I'm about to register some domains for some organic sites, all white-hat. I thought I remembered hearing somewhere that having a private domain has a negative effect on rankings?

    Is this correct? If so is it that big a deal, or do the benefits of having private registration outweigh any SEO penalties?

    I don't think so, SEO won't be affected by guarding/hiding domain's privacy.
