QT echo_pbreyer: 🇬🇧 : EU to ban anonymous websites and “whois privacy” services. The LIBE Committee supports indiscriminatory identification of domain holders incl. your phone number in Whois:

@neil So the EU, in introducing GDPR, enforced WHOIS privacy, kinda sorta, right?

@neil Didn't the GDPR encourage widespread adoption of whois privacy?

@neil @alcinnz The GDPR practically mandated whois privacy, IIUC. My details are still exposed via RIPE, though. One internet point to the first person who finds my phone number.

@neil Time to register international domain names in Canada or wherever I guess. Au revoir .fr, auf Wiedersehen .de, slán .ie
