Daily Poll: Do You Use Whois Privacy?

At many domain registrars, Whois privacy is a nice upsell opportunities. Some domain registrars, like Uniregistry (and now Namecheap) offer free Whois privacy for domain names registered there.

I have never been a big user of Whois privacy, but there have been times I used it at Uniregistry when I wanted to keep an acquisition or sale even more private than usual.

How often do you use Whois privacy?
