You haven't convinced me that anyone has falsified anything. All I see is that someone doesn't want his "phone number listed." Remember, the internet can't use "amazon.com" any more than the phone service can use your name to dial a call. Both have to be resolved to a number. In the case of a phone it's your name being resolved to a phone number. In the case of a web address, it's the name being resolved to its IP address.Since no attorneys have responded to my last post, I'll assume I am definitely onto something here:
The registrars have falsified their post office box applications in an effort to thwart any legal action or discovery of them and/or their clients who are the owners of the domains they have registered. This could be justice department material as it also implicates the horrid US Postal Service.
Again, there are legitimate businesses who rent post office boxes to people. The mail goes to that business and then they sort it into their own boxes. There are also legitimate mail forwarding businesses.
It's also legal to use a proxy which will hide your location. In two seconds I can cause it to appear to the world that I'm posting from Russia or Latvia or Viet Nam.
There are also legitimate businesses which register domain names for people, or keep the web site on their own servers so that DNS resolves the domain name to the IP address of the host which then has its own internal DNS which resolves it locally and internally, behind its firewall and/or DMZ and router.
Please show me a law (and we're talking about the law here) which requires the owner of a web site to make his information public? Just because you think he should doesn't mean diddly.
Have your tried a trace route ("tracert") in an attempt to find out WHERE that domain name is hosted? It might give up enough info to eventually get a physical address unless they are trying to hide it.

If I knew that domain name, I might well do a lot better than you've done tracing that guy. Maybe not, it depends. However, since you already know it all, I'm not offering.
Very recently we had a poster on another forum who was making actual threats to people. I traced him to his desk at work. I even figured out his real name and his email address at work. He works for a fairly large city in the SW. Next I sent him an anonymous and well hidden (the source of the email from him) email right to his desk at work, using his real name. I asked him if he thought the city would like it if they knew he was posting that junk on their equipment while he was being paid to work? I asked him if he'd like for me to send copies of his posts and links to them (which of course show the time of day) to the city manager, the mayor and the city council?
We haven't heard from him since.
