XXX VS US DoC

Well, did you all think this issues would go away? Of course the Us Government influenced ICANN's decision to block the XXX TLD. No I don't say allegedly. It's too obvious for me to be shy about calling a spade a spade.

Now, don't misunderstand this article. I am not a supporter of the XXX TLD. For one thing it will do absolutely nothing to control or inhibit porn on the Internet. Porn websites will still be placed on every TLD there is and with dot XXX they would just have a whole other TLD to build websites on.

It won't increase or decrease the amount of porn on the Internet. The christian right was saying, "It would add legitimacy to the porn industry. They are wrong. The supreme court of the United States of America already did that.

As a christian I hate being associated with "the christian right" who seek to influence our government to legislate morality.

As a christian it is my duty to teach people what is right and what is wrong. It's up to each individual whether or not they wish to live a moral life and follow Jesus Christ. Christ said he wants followers to come to him willingly.

Did he lobby the jews to pass laws accepting his word as law? No. He taught people and demonstrated through his own actions what it means to live right. He hoped they would follow his example.

So, back to the domain/TLD XXX. It's not an issue about porn since as I said before it will not affect porn in any way. It's an issue about the freedom to create new TLDs without government interference, without special interest groups deciding what is right or wrong, and without ICANN blocking my rights to start a business, even if that business is selling domain names and managing a TLD.

ICANN refusing individuals or companies the right to start a new TLD is restraint of trade and illegal.

I don't think Bush and his administration would have any qualms about doing anything they think they can get away with. They wouldn't give a second thought about using undue pressure on ICANN to drop the XXX domain. When tallying up the votes, they probably gained more than lost.

Reading some of your other posts, kidsearch, I know you are more knowledgeable about ICANN and the business of TLDs than I am. It seems you think ICANN should have resisted the pressure. I think you are right about that. But maybe the majority of ICANN's Board of Directors thought not having an XXX domain was actually best for the internet. We wouldn't want them to vote for the domain just to spite Bush.

I know you feel it isn't ICANN's job to approve TLDs or not, just administer. I don't know enough about it to have an opinion, but I'm glad to have read your view on it.
