Fill In Your Funny Title Here About The End Of .XXX


Icann has rejected .XXX as a new top level domain. Possible titles for this post include:
.XXX Gets X’ed Out
No Sex Please, We’re ICANN
.XXX To Be Ex-TLD
No Happy Ending For .XXX
As I have mentioned previously, I think that .XXX was plausible as a harm-reduction approach It was misunderstood as both a fix for and an endorsement of pornography, when it was neither.
I predict that there will be regulated zones on the Internet some day, and that domain names could be part of that process. All other things being equal, the rejection of .XXX will deprive us of data as to how zones might function.
