Re: I think its fine to not have details public

I am unclear why respect for someone's privacy makes their website any more prone to being dodgy.

If I need to look into a website, for that trait, I see location as much more indicative.

EU - least likely

and so on......

USA - could be. Who knows?

Russia - bet it is

I suppose it depends on what you consider dodgy. My criteria there is "takes my money and does not give me what I want/expect". Alternatively "takes my information and may deliberately pass it on to dodgy organisations like mafia, NSA, CIA, FSB or similar outposts of organised crime.

If I do not know someone's name and home phone number to pass directly to a lawyer, this does not matter. If the laws are broken here, we have a look egalitarian system which can provide warrants in valid cases. This keeps pretend ones out of my hair!
