Whois and Spam. The Washington Post: “SpamCop founder Julian Haight said… domain-name owners sign on for spam the moment they give their contact information. ‘Any e-mail address you give to Network Solutions is going to get spam, and that part of things really isn’t their fault,’ he said.” Contrast that statement with the results of a recent six-week survey by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission: “Addresses posted in…’ Whois’ domain name registries …did not receive any spam during the six weeks of the investigation.” I did my own “test” in February, 2002, with a new registration and a unique, new e-mail address. A year later, that address hasn’t proven to be the recipient of any spam. [icann.Blog]
