    I used a different whois and got more information. I suggest that you
    try that. There is one on the DomainMonger site under 'links'.

    The information that you have posted for '' does not
    appear to be a valid whois entry.

    I'd consider it a bit iffy if anyone posted my Domain Name information
    on the Internet. What are you trying to achieve?

    Good question.
    There have been a few cross posted posts about various support issues due
    to spyware.

    I think the OP needs to look at this:

  4. Registration (whois) details of a domain are publiclly available . over the
    last few year a few companies got around this rule for .com's (can't be done
    for .nz) and started running "privacy registries" which people hide behind.
    If you have .nz you have to follow the .nz rules have put your contact
    name/address down when registering the domain and you can't hide (if you put
    down false/non-real details you might find soon that your domain may get

    But coming down, if you think something has done wrong go to the police and
    they can get this information in legal ways.
