.XXX Domains Not Going To Happen

.XXX Domains Not Going To Happen

Via the Register:

“Plans for an area of the internet dedicated to pornography were killed last night in a vote by overseeing organisation ICANN.

n a split 9-5 board decision, the organisation acted ruthlessly, against its own previous position, in order to put an end to an increasingly difficult and controversial issue – the approval of a .xxx top-level domain.”

I could go either way on this one. On the one hand, it would probably be easier to catch sickos who traffic in child pornography with a XXX domain name, according to the original plans outlined in a previous CNet article. On the other hand, sites that provide a public service, say about teen pregnancy or STD’s, could be eventually considered part of the so-called Internet red light district. What do you think of XXX domains? Good idea, stupid idea? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
