Summary: ICANN has said no to the idea of a .xxx domain. As the Reg points out, this is the result of too much political to-ing and fro-ing, and is really not the sort of thing ICANN is supposed to be there for.

ICANN has said no to the idea of a .xxx domain. As the Reg points out, this is the result of too much political to-ing and fro-ing, and is really not the sort of thing ICANN is supposed to be there for.

And as for the moral objections to .xxx, well, those people are just shooting themselves in the foot, because a .xxx domain would have actually protected their innocent kiddies from webfilth more, not less.

Oh well, there's no accounting for bad judgement.
