    Re:Afilias Out-Sources to Dave Farber's .XXX New.N
    by Anonymous on Monday June 20 2005, @05:51AM (#15638)
    .XXX [like .TRAVEL] will be create one lawsuit at a time.

    Millions of users (with WIFI WRT-54Gs) routers
    now resolve the NEW.NET .XXX names.

    Those routers can be upgraded for free to also
    resolve NAME.XXX to NAME-XXX.com

    Buy BOTH names and you have two paths to success.

    ICANN plans to get the U.S. Government to endorse
    their cybersquatting on .XXX names. How many
    years do you think the U.S. Senate will be
    debating that ?

    Write to your U.S. Senator and ask WHY the U.S.
    is endorsing ICANN and the ISOC's agendas.

    NAME-XXX.com should work for a long time.
    For $6 per year, it is worth the insurance.

    Have you asked Dave Farber ?


    Dave Farber was Jon Postel's academic thesis advisor.

    Dave Farber was a top FCC official during the Clinton administration.

    Dave Farber's DNS company operates 25+ TLDs.

    Dave Farber was one of the people at a secret meeting in Washington D.C. when ICANN was formed and the deals with IBM and Verisign were made.

    What .XXX Names Are You Developing ?

    What .XXX Names Are You Developing ?

    Have you registered them with the U.S. PTO ?

    Do you have an FCC *whois* FRN to include in AAAA DNS Records ?

    Have you mentioned them to Howard Stern ?
