Dear members of ICANN,

I support Option #3 of the March 26, 
2010 process options submitted by ICANN 
for public comment.

ICANN should vote to adopt the 
dissenting opinion of the Panel's 
Declaration on the basis that the Board 
thinks that the Panel's majority 
opinion was wrong and that the Board's 
conduct was consistent with ICANN's 
Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation.

There is nothing to be gained in 
approving the .xxx domain, except to 
announe to the world that the internet--
originally a source for data sharing 
and collaboration in developing things--
would become an explict channel for the 
delivery of pornography, which, 
despite "civil libertarian" claims to 
the contrary, has been shown to be a 
destructive force for society across 
the globe.

The moral fabric of society is under 
great challenge right now. 
Legitimizing pornography serves no 
purpose but to hasten the disruption 
and destruction of civilized behavior. 
There is no reason to approve a .xxx 


Richard Virgilio
