Fully agree with you that the full story is much more nuanced and that an imbalanced view of an issue that requires a reasonable understanding of the various viewpoints is not particularly helpful.
As the author says nothing about the legitimate positive uses that WHOIS data is put to, but only mentions the inappropriate uses, there are in our group those who say nothing about the inappropriate uses of WHOIS data, but only mention the legitimate positive uses.

What I said since the beginning is that we need a well balanced position as defenders of the end users’ interest, all end users As we have to prevent criminals from harming the end users, we also need to prevent other kind of criminals from using end users data for their own (illegal) interest.
