    Saw this on namecheap facebook page. So apparently, "Your privacy provider could be forced to publish your contact data in WHOIS or even give it out to anyone who complains about your website, without due process". You can read more about it here: https://www.respectourprivacy.com/.

    Not cool man. This is so not cool.

    Dear ICANN ?

    Regarding the proposed rules governing companies that provide WHOIS privacy services (as set forth in the Privacy and Policy Services Accreditation Issues Policy document):

    I urge you to respect internet users' rights to privacy and due process.
    - Everyone deserves the right to privacy.
    - No one?s personal information should be revealed without a court order, regardless of whether the request comes from a private individual or law enforcement agency.

    Private information should be kept private. Thank you.

    I already sent a email to ICANN. Privacy is our right and we should fight for it. More info can be found here (OP posted same link as well). After sending email dont forget to click a confirmation url which is sent to your mailbox.
