Re: [registrars] Top 5 WHOIS/Privacy issues from the Staff Manage r's report

On 9/8/2003 1:31 PM Cute, Brian noted that:

4.	What manner or method should registrars use to provide access to
WHOIS data?

One of my biggest problems with this and most discussions in ICANN circles about Whois is that they presume the answer to #4 is something other than a question that must be left to operators (registries and registrars) to sort out.

Its a technical question. Tell us what you need and we'll figure out how to deal with it. If you tell us that you want us to use a standard across all registries, registrars, or whatever, fine. If it has to do X, Y and Z, then great. But don't tell us what manner or method we should be using - that's my/our decision.
