This is really OT for this list, but one of my "functions" is setting 
policy and overseeing the abuse desks covering nearly 3*10^6 user email 
addresses. If spam is detected coming from *your* domain (whether you are a 
direct spammer or your system has become infected with a worm, trojan, 
botnet, etc) and we cannot contact *you*, then we will contact your IP 
supplier - and this can hurt *you* as most suppliers (who are not already 
black-listed) have strict ToS (Terms of Service) and AUPs (Authorized User 
Policies) banning Unsolicited Bulk Email (UBE).

Godaddy are amongst the worst offenders (from an abuse desk pov) for 
"cloaking" - to the point that we hardly use their whois at all, and just 
advise the IP supplier direct. Other registrars offer a "semi private" 
email forwarding scheme that will take most of *your* pain away while still 
allowing contact with role addresses (postmaster@, admin@, etc)

My two cents...
