An Easier Way to Find Porn on the Web

You know as well as I do that it's just too darned hard to find porn on the web.

Where is the Internet porn? Is it accessible only after you type in some crazy combination of search words? Or on some off-the-beaten-path web site that requires a complicated series of passwords to enter? Who knows -- it's just too hard to find. That is, until now.

The Internet's primary oversight body (known to friends as The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) approved a plan Wednesday to create a virtual red-light district, setting the stage for pornographic Web sites to use new addresses ending in "xxx."

Finally, some easy-to-find web porn; it's about time.

It would have been nice if ICANN had done this 3 years ago when it was first proposed. One hopes that once it i set up, all porn sites will be forced to move into the .xxx namespace so I don't have to worry about my children substituting .com for .gov in the white house web site...
