ICANN rejects .xxx domain

xxxInternet regulator ICANN has voted down a proposal to create a domain for adult Web sites. ICANN’s board on Wednesday voted nine to five against the proposal, which would have led to the creation of a .xxx domain suffix for pornography sites.

The scheme has drawn considerable controversy over recent months, with conservative groups campaigning against the domain due to concerns that it would legitimize pornography. Advocates of the scheme have denied this, claiming that it would make it easier for Web users to avoid porn.

Hmm, pretty dumb decision. Content filtering for kids will be still a hard job for someones. Maybe they will vote some day for it. 😉

Rest of news is here.
