Another Silly Idea for .xxx
 

Mary Clare Jalonick writing for the Associated Press states in this article in the helenair.com Independent Record:

[Excerpt] "Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., is crafting the legislative package that would require the Department of Commerce to create the new [.xxx] domain name. Pornographic Web sites would be required to abandon their ‘‘.com’’ addresses, ideally consolidating them all in one Internet neighborhood."

As a fair number of pornographic domains are hosted in country-code TLD namespace, I can't see how this proposal will accomplish anything other than making a few congresscritters look good to their constituents. The Senator would be advised to gather the views of the ICANN Board (and of the Internet community generally) prior to launching this iniative.
