I have recently noticed that ISPs such as ATT(SIS-80) and Comcast(CBCI) publish their customers' personal information in /29 reassignments.  For my residential DSL service I was told to contact ipadmin at att.com to hide my personal information, which they did.

What are your thoughts as to why ISPs do not protect their residential customers' privacy by default? 

My thought on this subject is that ISPs still have the belief that Internet service with static IP blocks is only required by businesses, therefore ISPs fail to make the distinction between personal and business Internet accounts.
