Objections Made To ICANN Over Proposed gTLDs In Extended Consultation Period [pcadvisor.co.uk]

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia objected this week to a variety of new generic top-level domains (gTLDs)...
ranging from .wine and .bar and .bible, according to records of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).


People from other countries have also complained about some of the proposed gTLDs, for example about the use of the .patagonia gTLD which is said to be the name of a geographical region, and should not be assigned to a private company.

Perhaps the Saudis would find it easier to block "offensive content" IF more of such content moved to nicheTLDs?

I believe the idea that content could be filtered by nicheTLDs - such as .#*$! or .s e x - was supposed to be a benefit due to easier filtering.
