Mar 20 2011.XXX Domain Names Pass Final Approval


Despite thinking it was done in June of last year, the ICANN (no, no I can't either) registry has OFFICIALLY approved the dispatch of .xxx domains for use by pr0n sites. *pre-registers fetish site*

On Friday in San Francisco, the California nonprofit that oversees Internet addresses gave the green light to the virtual red-light district. The vote comes after several years of clashes and deliberations by the Internet Corp. for Assigned Names and Numbers.

Adult-entertainment sites will still populate the .com space and every other corner of the Internet. But now, many pornographic sites can also join a specialized domain that instantly telegraphs its content with the infamous suffix. ICM Registry, a Florida-based company that will run .xxx, said the domain's Web sites will be the Internet's most trusted place for adult entertainment: ICM will monitor the sites to ensure that they prohibit spam, viruses and any other illegal behavior. And it says it will use some of the registration fees for an affiliated foundation to promote free speech and combat child pornography.

But the dirty domain has a slew of critics. The Obama administration and some foreign nations say the domain's offensive material will only encourage oppressive regimes to block .xxx entirely.

Eh, I kind of like getting my credit-card info stolen by shifty pr0n sites. And then tracking down whoever's responsible and beating them within an inch of their life. It's kind of a hobby of mine. Some people make model airplanes. I just sniff the glue and make necklaces out of teeth.

Thanks to Patrick and Ferrous, who are both holding out for the approval of .tits. Ha -- what guy isn't?!

I guess all the major company's are going to have to buy up their name with the .xxx end. I'm buying and right now. Or, I can't decide.

Just the right age. Just right.


So what if "oppressive regimes" block access to .xxx sites? Is restriction of access to porn now a human rights violation? I'd think there are more important things they are blocking access to that we should be focusing on..

Dear GW,

Hopefully you have not lost sight of the fact that All you do is Win

They should just change the O in .com to a U

This was proposed more than ten years ago, when Obama was still kicking his heels around Chicago. The real people who worked to prevent this were the Christian nutjobs who didn't want porn to be legitimized, because it would spread.

In related news, hundreds of millions of Americans spent Sunday singing about an immense, imaginary being that makes their joyless lives worthwhile. They gave lots of money to a small, select group of humans to convince themselves that it's true.

LOL, even if they try to block online sex, it'll still find its way in through all of the nooks and crannies that can be exploited!

Well, this is only good. Now children will stop watching porn. Point being, children aren't ready for internet porn -- they need to stick to magazines and pictures of their girlfriends.

That's more like it.
