Here's a good example of why it's a waste of LEA/LEO's time to be
looking at WHOIS data:
Below is the data for my personal domain. I am the only one who
uses it. The only one who is responsible for it. My friend, who
doubles as a registrar, "registers" it for me.
Looks perfectly accurate to me and this is how it will be
"updated", but in order to find out it's me, LEA has to
send a subpoena to get the information i.e. who are the
account holders, where are they, where do they pay their bills
from, etc. etc.

As far as my statement about a whois record being "junk", I mean
it's junk to LEAs. Honestly? Is this more accurate than a
dig on ns, mx, soa and a traceroute to find out what REALLY
is going on here?
