I would say about 50% want to lie and 25% do lie.  We get calls on a daily
basis about people being tired of getting spam, phone calls, and snail mail
spam so they want to just put in bogus information so they stop receiving
it.  And to be honest with you I understand.  Get rid of the spam,
telemarketers, and the snail mail marketers and people will provide correct

Now I won't go into privacy issues, which would cut the number of bogus
whois information considerably.

But hey, this is my opinion.
