I can not say here on list that any researcher or privacy advocate is wrong
about that. I have my personal opinion about it whatsoever, but I try to
publish it on  academic papers, where I am able to give further evidences.

For instance, I am not able to see any privacy issue on domain
Creation Date and Country attributes.

Anyhow, my initial inquery was to know why Brazil has been bloqued at .co.nz.
I have got this answer, and is okay to me now.

By the way, I was not disrupting any server, I was looking for 3 domains
only. Lol
