The controversial .xxx domain has been denied by I-CANN. From C-Net:
The plan has drawn considerable controversy over recent months, with conservative groups campaigning against the domain due to concerns that it would legitimize pornography. Advocates of the plan have denied this, claiming that it would make it easier for Web users to avoid porn.
If the nitwits hadn’t checked, pr0n is all over the Internet. How much more legitimate can it get? One would think that neocons would want the distinction in order to make it easier to keep their kids, spouses and preachers off of sex sites.
Despite ardent political interest in the issue, Paul Twomey, the chief of ICANN, told the Associated Press that the decision “was not driven by a political consideration.”
Yeah, right. And I’ve got some beachfront property in Arizona for sale.
