ICANN chokes off .xxx porn registry

Plans for an area of the internet dedicated to pornography were killed last night in a vote by overseeing organisation Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Check the complete article here

I am personally disappointed on reading this. Till now all parents was complaining about their kids accidently entering into porn sites. I guess they would have been using some filtering software to block porn sites. Thats really cumbersome as there is no easy way to find out whether a site is porn related or not.

That said, if at all this voting was won, all porn sites would end with .XXX thats real simple for parents to block right? Then why the hell have they not approved this ... only god knows.

Since porn sites would not have been required to move to the xxx domain, the xxx domain couldn't have been used to filter porn.

Maria, you might want to install some popup blockers to protect yourself from those "so called ads :)

If at all you are using Windows XP then in its Service Pack (SP) 2 there is an in-built popup blocker software.

Check out,
