This is not a silly example. You offended someone, they obtained your IP
address from their web server logs or wherever, then they looked up your
details in whois, went to your home and assaulted your family. The whois
directory is a critical link in this chain, and many of us believe that ARIN
should not be forcing ISPs to publish information that individuals do not
want to have published. This is already a principle of ARIN policy with the
private residence stuff, but many of us feel that it could be done in a more
consistent and useful way.
