If we can coral them in it and legislate to have no porn anywhere

Subject: [IP] ICANN rejects .xxx domain
Begin forwarded message:
As reported in:
ICANN has reversed their earlier preliminary approval, and has now
rejected the "dot-xxx" adult materials top-level domain. I applaud
this wise decision by ICANN, which should simultaneously please both
anti-porn and free speech proponents, where opposition to the TLD
has been intense, though for totally disparate reasons.
Nick's AP piece referenced above notes that there are still
Congressional efforts to mandate such a TLD. It is important
to work toward ensuring that these do not gain traction.
