Tidy righties at the Family Research Council are aghast at the notion of a .xxx designation for porn sites.
In an email missive, FRC lawyer Patrick Trueman has this to say:
The new domain would do more harm than good. The ‘.com’ domain has been a cash cow for the porn industry and pornographers will not give it up and remove themselves to the ‘.xxx’ domain. Instead, they will populate the ‘.xxx’ domain and perhaps double the number of porn sites available on the Web.
The ‘.xxx’ domain also cloaks the porn industry with legitimacy. The industry will have a place at the table in developing and maintaining their new property.
Creating a virtual red light district may also discourage law enforcement from bringing obscenity cases on the notion that the problem is solved.
