ICANN Options

 ICANN Options:

 This is the third time ICANN has considered a dot-xxx domain. 
Where is no evidence that the public wants or needs this domain?
Countless marriages are breaking up and sexual promiscuity is more 
widespread than ever because of pornography use.  Pornography is 
destroying lives, relationships and familys, why should ICANN be using its 
authority to promote MORE pornography?  What part of NO is not being 

The concerns of have not changed in ten years. Those concerns are:
dot-xxx will create an entirely new pornographic realm on the Internet. 
Proliferating pornography will not protect children from pornography. It 
will only increase the risk of exposure. Pornographers will not be 
required to abandon their dot-com Web sites.  Creating a dot-xxx domain 
confers legitimacy to a largely criminal industry. It's like creating a 
free-market zone for drug dealers or prostitutes to operate more 
effectively.  There are state and federal laws already in place 
prohibiting the sale or distribution of hard-core pornography, but many 
Internet sites currently violate those laws. Will they adhere to the 
regulations of a dot-xxx domain, especially without the force of law 
behind them?  Moving pornographic content to a dot-xxx domain could hamper 
law enforcement efforts. The problem will be seen as settled and further 

Please DO NOT promote or even consider a dot-xxx domain!!

Thank you for your time.
