.xxx domain extensions available soon

ICANN  (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers - the central authority on domain name registrations) has uncovered a way it can make money from adult content. Coming soon to a desktop near you are domain names with the .xxx extension.  Wait,  what? No one ever said it was hard to find adult content on the internet. One of the reasons ICANN uses for justification of the new domain extension is that it that will allow Systems Administrators to block access to whatever percentage of new adult websites register a .xxx extension. The potential land-rush of domain name  speculators (the mind boggles at the possibilities) is merely a consequence of their good intentions, or so one can infer. The fact is: creating the .xxx won't help blocking the myriad of adult content that is already available. No one ever said it was hard to find adult content on the internet. ICANN has just uncovered a way it can make money from it.
