Deny .XXX sTLD
As a managing director of a adult dating company with over 10 years of trading online, my business' foundation is soley internet based and I believe that if ICM's application were granted and a .XXX sTLD were to be created it would negatively impact my business. Also it would put ICANN in the position of creating an entity to impose regulations and policy for the adult entertainment community-a situation that could easily stifle what is now a robust adult entertainment internet presence.
I do not support the creation of a .XXX sTLD and believe that the ICANN Board was well within its rights to deny ICM's application in the Board meeting in Lisbon.
It is imperative that ICANN consider the widespread opposition from the adult entertainment community to a .XXX sTLD as it makes its decision. For that reason, I support Option # 3 of the March 26, 2010 process options submitted by ICANN for public comment.
