New .xxx domain name

What do people think of the new .xxx domanin extention idea for adult websites. Ithink it will be good because it will be easier to block adult material, however the adult industry doesn't agree.

Of course they don't....

We all know that adult websites can be a source of nasty hidden viruses....and should (naturally) be avoided at all cost. And revenue generator for criminal activies.

I would suspect that all though yes it would be easier to block them, most of the people who set these sites up, wouldn't pay a blind bit of notice as they are looking to drive people to their website. No matter who they happen to be or even what age they happen to be.

Would even the 'legitimate' (Is there such thing) adult websites would follow the guidlines. Probably not.

There is a vote on opening up the top level domain extensions and therfore theoretically there could be .anything which would include the possibility if someone wanted to run .xxx

However any domain extensions will be subject to scrutiny, they will also have to show a business plan and have the technical ability to run it as well as tens or possibly hundreds of thousands if not more just to buy the right to run it from ICANN.

Even if someone did it wouldn't mean porn was all shifted under the umbrella of .xxx as Gordon says, most would continue as is on any domain they could derive traffic from.

There was just a story on the 1 PM news about the ".anything" idea.

From my perspective, it's a nightmare. Imagine telling clients to set aside

And anyone in business already knows (or is being advised to do so),that even along with registering your company name, you should make the domain you get part of your Intellecutual Property rights too......

It will cause chaos.

Ah, but what about gordon.isan.idiot, idea15.isan.idiot...

Is Icann going to say no to a suitcase full of money for the ".idiot" domain, and do some bored kids in an Eastern land then create thousands of parked domains for every business they can look up?
