.XXX Domains: Pre-registration is NOT proof of support

Diane Duke

ICM President Stuart Lawley plainly states, at an adult webmaster conference in 2007, that pre-registrations for the proposed .XXX “sponsored” Top Level Domain will NOT be used as proof of support from the adult webmaster community.

These days, Lawley is singing a different tune. But he’s still trying to get the .XXX sTLD pushed through despite no support from the “sponsoring” community of adult online businesses. .XXX will cost adult webmasters millions in unnecessary fees and make it easier for anti-adult entities to censor adult websites.
