So? Leave it to Congress and the ACLU to square off against each other over such a low-impact issue.

It’s voluntary, it’s unenforcable, it’s a sham. It’s merely designed to give concerned parents a false sense of control over what their kids see on the Internet.

It’s a really bad joke.

Porn-friendly ‘.xxx’ domains approved | CNET News.com: “Even though the ICM Registry’s approach is designed to be free-speech-friendly, the American Civil Liberties Union has expressed concern about .xxx domains.

    You’re right, that domain is a joke. I’m glad ICANN spent precious time approving that.

    Also, wouldn’t those same countries be able to filter those sites just as easy based on content? Seems like a false argument..
