Porn sites get their own domain: ‘.xxx’ – CNN.com

ABOUT DAMN TIME!

I know, some of you out there are screaming about it.  If you are, you are completely clueless about technology.

Bush stopped the .XXX TLD for a long time.  He was clueless too.  Why?

Right now, the only way to really tell if a site is a porn site or not is to go take a look.  Sure, there are some “clues” and some obvious words, but there are some that are not as obvious or are not porn sites.  SEX.com is not a porn site.  SEXY.com is.  For a long time, WHITEHOUSE.com was a porn site!

Currently, people have to use filtering software such as “NetNanny” or the like to filter out porn at home.  Well, guess what?  Filtering software is sometimes wrong too.  Recently, a major conservative blog was marked as “Adult Themed” by some idiot liberal.

So we had poor, incomplete filtering, but now we have a domain name that we know for a fact is a porn site!  Filter .XXX and you are 100% sure that you are blocking ONLY porn sites.  Get a link sent to you that goes to a .XXX site, you know what you are going to be seeing.

Will ALL porn sites use the .XXX domain?  Of course not, but you can be sure that you know the content of the ones that do.

Porn sites want you to know what they are.  They want the people who visit them to be people who want to view and purchase porn.  They wanted to put up the equivalent of a big “ADULT BOOK STORE” sign in front of their shop so everyone would know what’s inside.  Sadly, for years, clueless people have been demanding that they cover that up so you have to go inside the store to see what they sell.

Porn exists, people.  If you think that hiding it makes it go away, grow up.  Label it, make the content clear and you can avoid it.

(CNN) — It’s a big day for the porn industry.

On Friday, ICANN, the not-for-profit corporation that coordinates the internet’s naming system, voted to allow the application of the controversial ".xxx" top-level domain name for sites that display adult content.

The domain, which would need further approval before going live on the internet, would be applied to adult entertainment sites just as ".com" is now.
