    If this happens then we'll just use fake registrant names and addresses. We'll always make a workaround to keep anonymous.

    exactly, what are they going to do? send out letters to every registered address to check it's validity?

    People who want to be private will always find a way to be private. Period! Like everyone is saying people will use fake names and addresses if they are really trying to stay private.

    Use http://fakenamegenerator.com/ and get new details, if you want to be anonymous you can always be,

    That being said why not just provide details not like you are doing something illegal, But if privacy is your thing, Only give out first name and last initial, add a mail forwarding address and a virtual phone number, Who can't create those??,

    Still wondering why this is a big deal?
