Internet problems require internet -type solutions.

A robust, easy method is urgently needed for 
schools **and businesses** to block access to 
porn.

I  believe that an UNsponsored domain which is 
internet wide would be better than a sponsored one.

I believe all porn, internet wide, should be shifted
from  .com to either .adult or .xxx
I prefer .adult so softcore can go there too (xxx 
suggests hardcore) 

For example playboy.com would move to 
playboy.adult    - a 6-12 month period would be 
allowed for the change. Any existing site would 
stay with their existing registry. [hence the need
for an UNsponsored domain]

In addition I believe ICANN should shift all porn
to a specified range of IP numbers (as some sites are
IP only, not url)

The proposer of the .xxx sTLD should receive their
deposit back.

Why do this?
    - "no porn" browsers could be created by very 
       tiny modifications to existing browsers
      i.e. refuse to access .adult or specified IP
range
   - "no porn" operating systems could work only      
      "no porn" browsers (to prevent someone 
      installing "no limits" browsers)
   - full browsers could have 3options
           -block porn
           -password first
           -full access
  -in addition ISPs could duplicate these limits to
   provide double safeguards for schools and 
   businesses
 -international agreements could enforce these 
   measures world wide Note this is not 
   censorship it is categorization. In my country,
   adult bookshops are not in main shopping
   centres and are marked in big letters on the
   outside "ADULT BOOKSHOP" so if you really
   dont want to go there its easy to be informed and 
   stay out --same idea here.
 -it could be illegal to send email with links to 
  .adult sites

-result quite effective separation of porn into
different subsection of internet just by using
domain name servers to do it

-massive potential and so easy.
