So who was it again that wanted this TLD?
The people selling them. They tried a few times and naturally got rejected, so they started a misinformation campaign with the public saying that having a . x x x tld would control the pron industry and make the internet safer. ICANN caved under pressure and some con men are now very, very rich.
It was a little embarrassing for me, as several of my friends kept sending me emails inviting me to sign a petition or "pass-along" some information about the x x x tld and how much better the world would be with it.
It didn't take very long to explain that x x x creation means MORE pron, not less. Not a single existing adult site was going to be taken down, there would just be millions of more suitable domains to create pron on.
A con from start to finish.
