OK, question for those who know. What's the REAL scoop on the importance of opting for "privacy" when registering a domain name?
I understand that if you don't pay a little extra money for privacy, that your personal information (phone number, address, name, e-mail) will be listed in the WHOIS for all to see. If I don't purchase privacy for my domain, is it seriously going to leave me vulnerable to all kinds of spam, phone calls, and possibly identity theft? Long story short, do I need to purchase it or not?
