Update: ICANN rejects Porn TLD
Porn TLD to be Debated Tomorrow

 8:48 pm on Mar 29, 2007 (gmt 0)

International Herald Trib [iht.com]

A vote was scheduled Friday as weeklong meetings conclude. The board's 15-voting members could approve it, reject it outright or reject it but leave room for a revised proposal to return. That last option, however, would contradict ICANN's desire to close the current round of domain name proposals, started in 2004.

The board could also defer a decision for more discussion. That, too, is not likely given that ICANN already has rejected similar proposals twice since 2000 and has discussed the latest version during three teleconference meetings this year.

"They have made it very clear that the board will make a decision," said Paul Levins, ICANN's vice president for corporate affairs. "It's pretty clear that they want to make a decision."

Would it be mandated that all pr0n sites be moved to that tld? Then who would define pr0n?
Would you be able to show pics of Michaelangelo's David? Venus de Milo?
You say you "know it when I see it" but it is still perception and I think it is dangerous ground.
Don't forget we had a Attorney General recently that put a curtain over the Lady of Justice because the statue had one bare boob. Give me a break...
and btw..I don't do those kinds of sites.

If there is ever to be legislation for this issue, it would be at national level rather than at international level. It appears inappropriate for ICANN to create a generic TLD for an issue which should by rights be handled at ccTLD level.

There would be nothing preventing the US from creating an adult category under the .us domain, or Canada under .ca, and the national government for each ccTLD can decide on the pertinence of legislation and the extent of any restrictions with respect to each country's values and beliefs.

As such, I'm glad ICANN rejected this proposal again.

Seems like ICANN has made the first positive decision in its life.
