ICCAN needs to be more accountable

…to the United States Christians
The office of the president of the junta of French backed rebels who over threw their lawful government a few years ago has called for changes are needed to make the domain naming process more "accountable" and "transparent,”

Larry Strickling, a Commerce Department assistant secretary, said that the California nonprofit group, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, (ICANN) needed to do more to explain decisions and to listen to national governments.

ICANN and national governments have been at odds lately over the rules for approving new top-level domain names. Hundreds of applications for these suffixes are expected later this year, once the process has been finalized, including bids for .car, .love, .movie, .web, and .wine.

Governments feel that the bringing about of these domains prevent it collecting lots of money for listening to lobby groups. The Christian lobby is particularly vocal in the US and they are leaning on the government for a porn purge. They feel that setting up high-level domains will give kids a one-stop shop for porn. This increases the likelihood of born-again ministers running into their congregations when visiting adult sites.

Soon, pointless TLDs will outnumber everything else and you will find TLDs like .smith, for all people called Smith, and .jones too.

Then those boring monotheists will be demanding .church, .synagogue, .temple and .aleister-crowley.

Spammers will be able to register their .spam, and ruskranian botnet masters .fraud, .bot and .scam.

ICANN will be laughing all the way to the numbered swiss .bank accounts.

Please can someone smack some sense into them with a .kipper.

Having an XXX TLD is in no way detrimental to anything. Even more, it's easier for providers to offer options for parents, schools or businesses to filter all .xxx sites than what is going on today.
