I understand that there is a bill pending in Congress that if enacted will make falsifying WHOIS information a crime punishable by up to 5 years in the hoosegow. So things are going to get worse, not better. My practice is to use a stealth email like firstname.lastname@example.org and a POB. Use initials for first and middle names. Give them as little although correct information as you can. Currently using false information for WHOIS can be cause for forfeiture of the respective domain name. This requirement apparently is largely honored in the breach and not enforced. But one day the requirement will be enforced, and I wouldn't want to be number one in line, you know, the poor sucker who sets the precedent.
