I wrote about whois and privacy just last week. How DUMB can domainers possibly be?? I mean really?? I don't get it! Whether it is privacy or all your domains are no longer public it's YOUR choice. I can't even think of anything dumber a domainer can do.
If your info is not publicly listed in whois it may mean you no longer control the sale of YOUR own domain name depending on your registrar and your landing page. You may have effectively handed the keys over to each and every broker or registrar! You are keeping them in business and making $$$. Are you all BRAIN DEAD?? You may as well give your keys to facebook or twitter. It's insane! They have a new revenue stream and you don't!
Like a restaurant that is not on Open Table, does not do takeout, does not do delivery and is closed on weekends! And then complains about lack of sales and leads? DUH!!! Anyone need a CEO CROWBAR??
And then you complain about sales!? Really???? This has to be the #1 dumbest thing I have ever seen domainers do and there is a LONG list in my 23+ years!
