Dealing with daily domain and proxy abuse in consumer facing fraud,
maybe I'm somebody with a hammer seeing nails everywhere. But that
does not mean the nails aren't there, only that I'm more aware of them

Atm great harm is being done to all with proxies, even spoofing a
registrar of late: pubdomainregistry.com
