[NA-Discuss] Proxy-Privacy Use Higher for Illicit Domains

I'd like to point out this sentence: "the illicit use of privacy-proxy 
erodes the legitimate use." I support the use of privacy services for proper 
reasons. The way it is structured now benefits the abusers and will likely 
cause lawful users to suffer later. I like the Canadian system (.CA) that 
prohibits the use for commercial entities, that would preclude much misuse.

Your assumptions about my intent are not supported by the content of the 
article, it is I who have been painted by a broad brush.
