• ...There goes my marketing idea for moonshine : (
  • It would make identification easier. I worry for whom and who would be the first to use them.
  • I think that is a fantastic idea, less chance the kids would accidentally mis-type one letter and end up on a porn site.
  • Nice thought, but, it's not enforcable. And what effect would it have on Vin Diesel?
  • I'll never remember that :D
  • I think its a good idea.
  • Not my thoughts, but a summary of the present discussion. I personally don't think such a domain would be a good idea. ".xxx is a proposed top-level domain (TLD) intended as a voluntary option for sexually explicit sites on the Internet. The name is inspired by the former MPAA and BBFC "X" rating, now commonly applied to pornographic movies as "XXX". ICANN announced in June 1, 2005 that .xxx would become a sponsored top-level domain similar to .aero, .travel, etc. but it was never implemented. On May 10, 2006, ICANN reversed its decision, and on March 30, 2007, ICANN rejected the .xxx proposal a third time." "Advocates of the idea argue that it will be easy for parents and employers to block the entire TLD, rather than using more complex and error-prone content-based filtering, without imposing any restrictions on those who wish to access it. Critics of the idea argue that because there is no requirement for providers of explicit content to use the TLD, sexually explicit material will still be commonplace in other domains, making it ineffectual at restricting access, and simply creating a new "landrush" as registrants of .com domains hosting explicit material attempt to duplicate their registrations in the .xxx domain, competing with operators who hope to register desirable names unavailable in other TLDs. There is also concern that the existence of .xxx will lead to legislation making its use mandatory for sexually explicit material, leading to legal conflicts over the definition of "sexually explicit", free speech rights, and jurisdiction. RFC 3675, entitled ".sex Considered Dangerous", discusses some of these objections. Meanwhile, the United States Department of Commerce has objected to the creation of this domain in response to complaints that it would legitimize pornography. This has been backed by many conservative Christian groups in America such as the American Family Association." "On January 6, 2007, ICANN put up for public comment a revised proposal following changes to the policy of the ICM registry including the policing of any site that signs up to use the .xxx registry. On March 30, 2007, ICANN rejected the .xxx proposal for the third time, citing that the board did not want to get in the business of content regulation, especially when the definition of "pornography" varies by jurisdiction. Other groups have spoken out against the domain as well. Adult website owners feel the exclusive domain for their sites would turn adult websites into an "online ghetto." Religious leaders, on the other hand, fear it would "legitimize and expand" the number of adult websites. ICM was quoted as saying they would "likely" file a lawsuit against ICANN."

  • I think it's a great idea..then only the people that want to go to those sites would.
  • why .xxx and not .cum
  • EXCELLENT idea!
  • That sounds safer to me, rather than a child typing in a website that may be named innocently enough and being transported to something lewd. Plus it would be easier to check the PC history for recent history - the parents would have an easier time knowing what sites their child has entered into the URL browser.
  • see throughout history it's been "first you segregate then you destroy" this idea won't stop you kid from seeing porn, it won't stop adult websites using .com and it won't be passed anyway because the religious reich is against it. the ones who should be regulating what their kids are exposed to, are their parents. face it, kids will always be a step ahead in computers so nothing you do will stop them if they want to see porn. sights use credit cards to conferm age, kids use their parents credit cards etc, etc, etc
  • Great thought!!! may be xxx. instead of wwww.
  • Great thought!!! may be xxx. instead of www.
  • That would be great! The moment an adult website uses a .com, it should be shut down immediately. Good question.
  • Not worth the time...why do it? Most arnt illegal except for copyright violations. Who would check .com,, .biz, .net, .org etc were not hosting adult images? what about social network sites that allow the upload of any image? Then there are the sites without a domain name (hosted at home using ip for address), these tend to be the more 'hardcore' and questionable. I dont know how people always say they stumble on to porn, used the internet for ages and I never have unless I have been looking in that area! I do think that needs to look at some of its videos though, lots of young girls and old men on tube...and the videos alway come into the links on the right of the page?!
  • Good Idea but ".cum" would be more fun! . I have a moonshine jug on my chest I don't want people thinking I have a porno jug tattoo!
  • great idea then you wouldnt "accidentally" come across these types of websites
  • they could be just ordinary websites. people's homepages maybe. its like the other domain endings...dotorg etc. why prejudge a site without going there.
  • Yeah, I'd go for it. :P
