Thread: Porn gets a new domain..

  1. #1

    Default Porn gets a new domain..

    linky:
    The internet is for porn!

    To summarize, some ruling body of internet doodads is putting forth the motion that all adult websites will have a .xxx at the end of their URLs, instead of .com. Aside from the issue of having to rewrite all the URLs on a website, I think this is an interesting idea.

    But it got me thinking, where do *B/DL sites lie? What about the blogs? While they do deal with adult content and issues, I would not classify some*B/DL sites as porn. Hell look at this forum, we have entire sections devoted to things that many people consider a sexual object/turn on, and yet we are not an adult site.

    Anywho, I found it interesting, perhaps worthy of a community discussion.

    ICANN is not policing the internet. They are not forcing these sites to join use this TLD. Any existing sites are unlikely to switch unless they can get a better name (.e.g, if reallylongnamedpornsitethatijustmadeup.com can get sex.xxx ). This is even mentioned in that article.



    voluntary self regulatory community
    Of course, because of this, any possible uses it has for filtering networks, etc., is moot, because some site is always going to pick a "discrete" domain name. Apart from the possibility of getting a better name, this really doesn't make sense for porn sites. Make themselves easier to block, so they get less views, therefore less ads?

    I would imagine that it would cost a lot of money to rewrite all of the URLs. Would anyone really be willing to put that much money just for a domain name? Is it really worth the effort?

    I really don't think that *B/DL sites would go under that category unless they are obviously of pornographic (the showing of genitilia, breasts, etc.). The same goes with the blogs.

    It did say in the article that it will be optional to change the domain, so I don't think it's really going to be strongly implemented. A few sites will do it just because they can, but I doubt that it will have a strong effect.

    There won't be any mass rewrite. It's just a new TLD that porn sites can choose to use or not. Aside from a few countries that strictly police their own TLD (like Canada and .ca for example) and special exceptions like .mil and .gov, anyone is free to pick pretty much whatever TLD they want to use.

    Not all of the ab/dl sites are adult, and adisc certainly isn't. It wouldn't be a good idea for ab/dl/ic support communities like this one anyway, imagine a 14 year old boy/girl just learning he/she likes diapers, and then find a support community with the label "adult content" fixed to it (cause that is what is going to happen)

    It would be way to much trouble to move the site anyway, though I agree that some other ab/dl sites are certainly adult and could start using that url.

    There is no requirement to move. Porn sites will race to get the memorable domain names and many .com domains will probably also take the corresponding .xxx name, but otherwise, this changes nothing.

    Some AB/DL sites are, some aren't. Only those that actually purport to be porn sites will consider adding or switching to a .xxx domain; the others won't do anything because they don't view themselves as porn.

    If they took all the porn off the internet, there would be only one site left and it would say "Bring back the porn."

    The domain name is not the actual address of the site, but a reference to the IP address (internet protocol) of the site. For example, the IPv4 address for adisc is 65.23.159.101 (you can put that in your browser and it will bring you here). Actually, if you go to the command line and you type in "ping adisc.org" you'll get the reply from 65.23.159.101. Also, the relationship is not 1:1, meaning that you can have multiple domain name pointing to the same IP address, so it would actually be quite easy to also have a adisc.xxx address that points to 65.23.159.101 (not that there is any good reason to do it, but there is really no technical hurdle. All it would do, apart from ruining our reputation, is add 60$ a year to the site's cost).

    Seems logical to me. Not much different than designating 800 prefix phone numbers as toll-free.

    Truth in advertising.

    There's value for porn-seekers in being able to identify porn sites more easily. There's value for porn providers in not surprising people who were looking for something else.

    I suppose there might be some grey areas, ie, some people are shocked, outraged, and aroused by the sight of naked ankles where most people are not.

    None of this applies to ADISC. Even for those of us with a sexual component to our diaper wearing, this is about the least arousing site there is. As for the general public, I can't imagine they would regard us as pornographic. Odd, certainly, disgusting probably, but not pornographic.
