Regarding domain privacy protection and those EWOQ reviewers looking for an ownership-based connection between sites: I suspect that they may not have access to the un-protected WHOIS (and I hope that they don't) and so hundreds of thousands of sites, many of them very bad, would have the same administrative, technical, billing and registrar contact information - same name, same address, phone number, fax.
Just the email will be different but even then it will all be on the same domain, such as @whoisguard.com for example.
I've browsed through the infamous review guidelines and found nothing that would explain a newly minted EWOQer how to "decipher" the info they can get from Whois. No mentioning of domain privacy protection, Nothing said about how to get reliable whois info either. Are we supposed to trust that EWOQers are domain owners themselves or at least understand what domain privacy protection is and how it operates?
I mean, this all sounds basic to anyone reading this forum but if EWOQ draws its labor from the same pool call center operators do, we're all in trouble.
