Re: Phone book

You echo my point.

Your name is not in the phone book, and the only people who contact you are those who you gave it to specifically.

If you want others who know your name but not your phone number to find you, you put it in the phone book.

Likewise with domains : if you want a visible one, you publicise the details. If you don't want it visible, you don't need a DNS entry.
