    When I started IM i was a bit clumsy and I forgot to put private WHOIS on etc......

    Is there anyway I can repair the damage done?

    Some people found my name and what domains I own...

    Thanks.

    No. Because they already have the information.
    Your best bet is to use some social engineering, e.g. email them and say: "I asked So-and-so to register the domain for me under my name, but he did under his own. Please correct your DB."

    I think the only scary time to put your real info there is when you host porn sites LOL but if they are good sites I wont mind having my real info there, unless some bully or stalker starts harassing me and all :(

    actually guys ... there are some things what you absolutely need to consider ...
    first of all real whois info MUST be filled there ( like the ownership of the domains ) - yeah I lost 2 domains years ago because I just had there some random fake names lol :) pretty good one , so ... real whois info it's a must ( atleast if you keep your valuable domains on registrars like godaddy damn it ) .... do not fool with this :) ...

    Now the thing with good domains to keep them in order to develop them , there is nothing wrong to have your infos there :) ... if you are doing some nasty stuff like copyright infringements , illega porns and so on ... you must be plain dumb to fill your real info there , and anyway those domains will get slapped ... so no damn point to put real info at all ..

    And to clarify for everyone , hiding your info behind privacy services is not getting rid of troubles in case if your domains getting hunted by this guys who fight for copyrights and so on , dcma notices ... you got the point :)? any whois privacy service will release the information to them when are requested accompanied by dcma's :)

    Well .. the best bet is to save credit card numbers you used when registering the domain name .. the rest is all fine no one can harm you .. no matter if you uses real or fake data .. I own more than 200 domain names ;) and I am sure I have 200 diff names on all of them :)

    There is value in keeping your information private, even if you're not posting illegal content. As there are plenty of ways that that info could conceivably be used against you if your adversary is suitably imaginative.
