DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

03/06/05: Privacy and domain registrations

Tech Support Pits:
From Craig=== Dear Webby: Is it true that registering a domain causes a lot of spam unless you pay a lot of extra money for those rip-off proxy or private registrations? Craig Dear Craig That depends entirely on where you register your domain, Proxy and private registrations are indeed a rip-off, and cause a lot of unnecessary rigmarole. I don't advise them. We have been registering domains for our clients for ten years and we know the tricks. If you want privacy and eliminate all the spam associated with being listed as a domain owner, we make you a special address for just that. Then you set up a filter in MailWasher or your mail program to filter all mail, that comes to that address, straight to the trash. If you ever do need access to that address, for example to acknowledge an application for some changes, then you simply disable that filter for half a day. For the billing address of your domain we always use our billing address and pay for your annual renewal on your behalf. It then just shows up as a line item on your next, regular invoice. And we deal with the spam that is trying to get to your name registration billing address. Have FUN! Dear Webby
