If you all think that writing such a meaningless e-mail and sending it anonymously will get you anywhere, you are sadly mistaken.
The "anti-abuse-wg" is an open forum where interested individuals discuss abuse related matters in connection with Whois directories. Everyone who participate in these discussions identifies himself/herself as a professional courtesy.
By calling anti abuse issues "worthless", Help.Org staff who has sent this meaningless e-mail diminishes its credibility.
By hiding behind "Help.Org" and "whoissecurity.com" domains, you show your unwillingness to engage in the ongoing discussions professionally here.
