    Sex domain gets official approval - .xxx

    Official approval has been given for the creation of an internet domain dedicated to pornography.

    The board of net overseer Icann gave initial approval for the creation of the .xxx domain at its conference in Brussels.

    Icann's approval will kick off a fast-track process to get the porn-only domain set up

    How pathetic. Either ICANN is run by idiots, or domain squatters have managed to corrupt the system. The only purpose of the domain is make companies purchase yet another domain location, and give leverage to the morons who want to censor the net.

    Well, as someone who knows of porn sites that bypass even the more stringent user-controlled security systems, I saw this evolution take place.

    This might be useful if all the porn scum could be convinced to stick to the .xxx domains so people wouldn't have to worry about accidentally clicking porn links. Unfortunately, I highly doubt that's going to happen.

    Then hopefully all the porn sites will be put in that domain, so those of us who want can block them, to prevent stumbling on them by accident.

    What's the problem? You wont get blinded. Just press "back" on your browser. There really isn't an excuse to make it easier for governments to censor things they have no business controlling. Anyway, .xxx wont change anything. If the owners know this will put there website immediately on the censor black list in some countries, then not all of them will risk that.

    Governments have perfectly valid reasons for attempting to halt the spread of pornography. It is corrosive to the moral fiber of nations.

    Seems like a good idea to me IF all porn are REQUIRED to use it, otherwise its not news at all, just another meaningless address among billions
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.
