Umm.. note that if NSI drops the Whois information regarding one
of their customers on the floor, that's between *me* and NSI,
not between NSI and the customer.
I at least *HOPE* that the majority of Whois queries are people
looking for contact information for *other* sites, rather than
paranoid "is my entry still OK?" queries. If the latter, we have
a serious problem. If the former, it's *still* not between NSI
and the customer, because the customer who's info I'm trying to find
doesn't *know* that I'm unable to find it. And if I had the info
so I could tell them... I wouldn't be looking in Whois in the first place.
Also, note that "between each customer and NSI" is exactly the sort
of reason why the concept of a class action lawsuit exists. I'm not
saying one is needed, just mentioning the logic behind it....
