From San Francisco: Adult Industry Does NOT Support .XXX

Diane Duke

FSC Board member and attorney Reed Lee and Wasteland's Colin Rowntree (r to l) working diligently to fight .XXX


ICANN Chair Peter Dengate-Thrush and other ICANN Board members will vote on whether or not to approve .XXX on Friday

FSC is in San Francisco through Friday to voice opposition and protest against the proposed .XXX  sTLD. We need your help.

.XXX will cost adult webmasters millions in unnecessary fees; will make it easier for anti-adult entities to block adult websites; will make it easier for children to find adult material online; will needlessly fragment the Internet and set a precedent for online censorship. One company, ICM Registry, will have control over the online adult industry if .XXX is approved.

ICANN’s Peter Dengate Thrush stated that he is “not sure” which way the ICANN board will vote on .XXX. There is still time for you to voice your opinion and tell ICANN that you DO NOT support .XXX…

Follow us at @FSCArmy – we will be tweeting today and tomorrow, with messages that clearly say that WE DO NOT SUPPORT .XXX – if you are in adult, or you are an online consumer of adult, support our efforts to defeat this dangerous action.

You worked hard to build your Internet business – do you want an address in the .XXX ghetto?
