    TLD .sex dismay or resistance

            * Subject: TLD .sex dismay or resistance

    Fellow Internetites,

    Some time ago (like many others) I tried to have TLD
    ".SEX." setup.

    OK The cards are on the table ... lets have this out once and for all
    Your comments and enthusiasm welcome.

    Why is the internet community so "Backward" in accepting great ideas ?

    I think that the problem lies with the people calling the shots
    having great resistance to change ... ... ....

    IF that is the case then they are definitely in the wrong industry !

    The reasoning behind the sex TLD is covered in short

    Basically it is a combination of community service to the sex industry and
    victims of abuse etc.
    as well as giving the internet's most popular pastime (and revenue base) a
    true home.

    It allows the internet to be cleaned up (with some global law passing) that
    sexual content can not
    exist out side of the .sex domain ... yep the obvious reason of minors is also
    there too.

    The main reason is lowering the abuse rate and raising the access level of
    victims, workers, and
    the uninformed to bonefide councilling and help infrastructures world wide,
    legal advise and disease

    The above link explains further .... strick policies and ratings and a
    hierarchical nomencature of
    content naming and rating as well as the services that MUST be provided by the .SEX TLD registry body
    ie me .

    Server placement would be co-located at PAIX peering point ( well enough
    connected )

    It's time that the system gave something back to the supporters.

    The sex industry in general is a money play, I would like to see some of the
    registration fees
    for TLD .SEX pumped back into support services.

    I have set up a mail filter on subject.

    Those in favour reply with subject "SUPPORT .SEX"
    Those who disagree with subject "OPPOSE .SEX"
    Those who really think this is NOT important reply with subject of "NOUSE .SEX"
    the appathetic may refrain from replying at all (naturally)

    I will post the results of this "pole" at the end of the month.

    (attatchments will be discarded so keep your comments short and to the point
    please, under the above subject headings)
