    I have problem with removal of private personal data from "whoisology". I want to remove the personal data (my request was rejected by them). If it is impossible how I can remove it from both european and non-european index of google ("European privacy in search" doesn't work in english version of google). I think here about strong filter or ban for concrete sub-page of "whoisology" or whole service.

    Clarification:
    My personal data was published by mistake. I have other domain and it was mistake of my domain provider. I take note of this after enter my name into Google. Meanwhile the "whoisology" grabbed my private personal data and published it on their site. It is law-breaking to use automated grabbers of data from ICANN (ToS of ICANN forbid it). My private data was removed from ICANN for this domain but "whoisology" rejected my request to remove this data.

    Sorry for my english.

    This is a big problem with whoisology. It even stated on their website they do not remove either live or historical archives.

    This is a picture of Phillip McKegney, the main operator of Whoisology.

    Every few days, a new picture from McKegney's family photo album will be added until Whoisology introduces an option to remove whois data of single domains in its entirety.
    If it is not sufficient to add pictures only, I will add Phillip McKegney's private address and some other details.
    In case this is still not enough, I will be creative.

    According to the logic of Whoisology, all information which can be obtained from public sources may be aggregated and republished legally.

    Read their site:
    "If you want to lookup the current owner of a domain name we're not what you're looking for. We're also not the folks who can update your whois information. You do that where you bought your domain name! No need to tell us once you update it either, we update all the data on the site at the same time every few months."

    Some pressure has caused Whoisology staff to introduce an option which hides information from the general public at WHOISOLOGY/redaction_request. (I may not post URLs because I am a new member, it's "tseuqer_noitcader/moc.ygolosiohw" reversed.)
    I am not totally convinced of this because apparently the data will still be available on Whoisology but at least be hidden from search engines. The FAQ at WHOISOLOGY/faq is not very clear to me. What is the general public? Do registered users belong to the general public?
    Still, somebody needs to confirm how they will react to removal requests and what consequences they will have (complete removal or "noindex" tag only). I myself will wait for a growing anonymity set in order to be able to test the feature. Maybe someone can help out with an anonymously registered domain.
    However, it is a step into the right direction. Therefore I would kindly ask a moderator to remove the image I posted above (because I cannot edit it anymore) for reasons of fairness until the situation becomes more assessable.

    EDIT: I have located the operators of WhoisMind aka Media14h. Follow me on twitter for more information about whois abuse at /stopwhoisabuse.

    Proud to announce that WhoisMind has removed whois history for all domains after the operators were located.

    Who.is seems to have removed their history. At least it only shows the current whois record. Furthermore, the paid removal link has been removed.
