Re: so who do you report abuse to, now?

Did you ever find a dodgy site with a working abuse address or real telephone number? Even many ISP abuse addresses are utterly useless, because most of them ignore reports - why kick out dodgy but paying customers, as long as you don't face consequences?

Registrars don't vet registration details, and even criminals buy anonymization, if they see it useful - and be able to extract some more money for each domain is what registrar like.
