Subject: Domain registrars requirements for 'accuracy'.


got a call from a non customer who's home phone number used to be owned by
a spammer. People who got spammed look up the domain with whois and get
_his_ number and call and harass him.

He wrote the nic who basically said 'screw off', we make that info public and
we don't know who you are since it isn't your domain.

Seems to me that if they just dialed the phone to call the number in the
registration and he answered and said 'no, this isn't xyz.com' then they
ought to remove the number from the contact information.

Who's responsible for the integrity of the NIC data? And if a spammer can
register a domain and make up a phone number that ends up getting another
person in hot water what is their liability?
