christian arguments against .xxx domain
This made me laugh out loud.
"They [pornographers] will keep their '.com' domains, and I have no doubt they will buy their '.xxx' as well," said Patrick Trueman, special counsel for the Alliance Defence Fund, a Christian public-interest law firm. "There will be twice as much pornography on the internet."
Holy shit! Twice as much porn on the net! Fill your pants and call your congressman!
Or take a deep breath and realize that buying another domain name and having it point to your already-existing site doesn't mean there's any more porn out there than there was before.
I think it's a little silly that the porn industry opposes this move. They are afraid that they'll be forced to take down their .com sites and only use .xxx. But so what? Why are they interested in pretending to be something they aren't? Do they want to sell porn to people who don't want it? How? Why?
If I were a porn producer, I'd be happy that I had this domain designation to use for the same reason that retailers are happy to have malls in which to set up shop.
Basically, the porn producers are worried that they'll become easier to block by parents and wives that don't want kids and husbands looking at porn on the household computer. They realize that a certain percentage of their revenues are coming from people looking at their sites on the sly and they are afraid of losing this money. They should wise up. Parents and wives already know how to tell if their kids/husbands are looking at porn and how to effectively block 99% of it. The internet has done more than anything to almost make porn and access to it an accepted part of life. Porn producers should be using .xxx to make their industry entrenched, recognized and accepted rather than a guerrilla presence on the Internet as it is now.
Lazy is a word we use when someone isn't doing what we want them to do.
