porn

Did you know there was a plan by the ICANN to develop an internet name string just for porn sites? So instead of porn-dot-com there would be a porn-dot-xxx? What a freaking brilliant idea. I mean, assuming that the porn industry would be hip to it (and there’s extensive evidence to suggest that they would), the majority of porn on the internet would be on sites ending with .xxx. How easy would it be for developers to add parental controls to web browsers that simply say, “Don’t let this computer navigate to sites ending in .xxx”? True, it wouldn’t be perfect, but it would be a whole lot like the real world. If you don’t want to see strip clubs and hookers, don’t go to the ‘loin, right? If you don’t wanna see porn sites on the internet, don’t type “.xxx”.

But guess what? Look who’s against it. The religious right, surprise surprise and it looks like they won the fight.

Damn it.
