Moves to create a web domain for adult content have intensified with the group which has applied for the .xxx address demanding a decision on its fate.
Net regulator Icann (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) - the body which oversees web addresses - has been delaying its vote.
...
It gave the domain the go-ahead in 2005 but reversed the decision two years later.
Proponents says that having a .xxx domain will make the web safer.

...
"This has been a $7m dollar process, costing us $5m in legal fees and Icann $2m," said Stuart Lawley, chairman of ICM Registry, which has proposed the .xxx domain.
He argues that having a specific address for porn sites will make it easier for parents and others to block access to them.
"One of the requirements of anyone registering a .xxx domain is that the site carries meta-tags that will be automatically picked up by the popular browsers and allow people who want to avoid the content to easily do so," he told BBC News.

My goodness me. What a sad world we have created that the need for this appears to be necessary. All that money spent could have been put to so many worthwhile projects.

this coming from someone with a username like a porn star no im just messing with you, in all seriousness, i think its a great idea, with the current system no matter how good a filtering system is in place, plenty slip through the net.

im not saying that kids won't still find a way around it (hey we've all been there right?) but it will certainly make it harder

Agreed this would be much better, it should have been done long ago.
Besides, I'm already over-exposed..... hmm, I'm really should rephrase that....

Sounds like a good idea. I have stumbled onto a few (one with my mom over my shoulder) that would not have happened if this worked. (When searching for Black Friday Ads | Black Friday Deals | 2010 Black Friday Sales)

Wish they would do this in the US.

Heh - y'know, Al Gore didn't create the internet, but the porn industry most assuredly drives it. They are the kings of innovation. Porn is such an interesting topic for me.
