Subject: Business/dollar  mix of kids and porn is revolting, with possible social downturn



      If I understand the concept correctly, profit from adult interest and product use of porn will pipeline into better kids' frontiers on the web? Does anybody believe that is true? These two elements are exact poles in terms of goals, vision, and external social costs and benefits. I don't make a judgment here about the moral right to sanction or operate sites selling porn, that's another issue. Anyone comfortable working the xxx channels is protected by our great country's laws, freedom for all.
But mating the two leaves a strange taste in the mouth.

Porn promoters are precisely not the group that needs to be monitoring and developing the technical future and virtual horizons for youth. I don't even want to think about the corporate retreats, or where the traffic/development data might end up. In my opinion, porn execution as a business enterprise excludes optimum child program/goal development, the altruistic key elements of the latter cannot be aligned with the profit incentive of the former. Porn is addictive, I'm not sure the opposite number for children's sites is true. Porn is an adult right, children are to be protected from it, not receive co-branded marketing messages indicating both are equally acceptable media for consumption.

But XXX profit machines can exist exclusive of the kids sites. Why must the two be mounted on the same TLD? If I didn't think this application was legitimate, I might think this part of the application was the pushbutton to obtaining the xxx TLD.

This sounds to me like a guy who blocks the intersection with his cab causing a wreck and races you to the hospital "for a minimal charge". There's enough porn on the web already. I don't even want to think about the implications of cross-mirroring servers, hacking, and the potential "partnering", the double entendre potential of which would keep Saturday Night Live going another season.     

   Kids are too click-close, conscious or not, to porn anyway.
