Possible Final Vote on XXX Next Week

Online pornographers and religious groups are in a rare alliance as a key Internet oversight agency nears a decision on creating a virtual red-light district through a ".xxx" Internet address.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which has already rejected similar proposals twice since 2000, planned to vote as early as next week on whether to approve the domain name for voluntary use by porn sites.

This kind of nonsense of letting a group of religious fanatics dictate the content of the root zone has got to stop.  Thats why we need organizations like the TLDA.

The Top Level Domain Association Inc. is a trade association of Internet Top Level Domain (TLD) holders. This organization represents the interests of TLD Holders and will seek to foster cooperation among TLD holders to advance the cause of building a stable namespace. All TLD holders are welcome to become members of the TLDA.

After being dormant for several years, the former members and new stakeholders have revived this organization because the stakes have never been higher for TLD holders and internet citizens.

If you are a TLD holder, you are welcome to join the organization and help shape the direction of this important advocacy group for TLD holders. Membership is free.

See www.tlda.net for more information
