No. What you are hearing me say is that things work just fine the way
they are right now with whois.  I can get all the information I
currently need from whois and Proposal 95 would break that.

The only benefit Proposal 95 offers is protection of customer lists. 

I could support a proposal that protects the customer lists while also
protects my being able to do what I need to do.

Blocking of the > operator for that one type of query would not impact
my ability to get my work done and would make it harder for sales drones
to walk provider address space.
