Godaddy is Selling Our Personal Data!

Hi,

Don't tell me they are not,

Because every time I register a new domain and my inbox now is full of spam. How do spammers know what the new domain I've registered? yes maybe you can tell me they can use: https://whois.icann.org/en/lookup to find domain info, but how did they know the domain name I've registered just now!? SOMEONE TOLD THEM.

Plus: this domain: https://whois.icann.org/en/lookup?name=daliaa.net I've registered a few weeks ago, I can't see my email address showing there but my inbox is full of spam people offering me their services for that domain exactly! SOMEONE TOLD THEM!

SO what we can do? I think we should raise the matter to the court.

These spammers use automated scripts to scour the whois database for the contact details of countless people for free, why would they pay GoDaddy?  Also, I can see your email address listed in the whois.
