Subject: The International aspects of our proposal


      We absolutely agree thats different standards apply in different countries and in different cultures. We agree these standards may be stronger or weaker in countries around the world. In our expanded proposal, We expect to develop many communities for india, for England and for france.  If the french parents wants their kids to access wine content, they can go to the many .com sites that talk of wine.  Potentially, we can even work in proper contextual wine references, but not sale of wine. Our annual audit allows us to keep track of the context sites are using to talk about cultural isssues. We wont screen breast cancer for instance for medical sites.

Here is the important part, just becasue a person in france want his kids to be educated about wine, doesnt mean my kids here in the us or saudi arabia should be exposed to that type on content until the parents deem it approporiate.  We are providing a playground with rules. So parents can trust kids to run around our sites unsupervised.

Context and national norms are important to us. Right now the US makes up 60% of Internet usage. If we lean a little toward that, please forgive us.  There has been alot of work in the US and we want to cap off as much as ten years of child protection struggles with a real live solution that works.

Thank you for supporting. .KIDS domains, the only restricted .kids domain name applicant.
