Nothing is going to happen. Censorship of porn is not going to happen, period.

Too many people have tried and failed. Too many people like their porn.

Sony tried banning it off Betamax.... one of the reasons Beta failed.

This is not trying entirely to ban porn.

One of the positives of havin the new domain is that if you try to google someone, and there is an adult star with the same name, you (hopefully) wont be greeted by images/videos/links of porn.

It also makes it easier for workplaces and public places to block content deemed inappropriate for public. Instead of having to go through a trial and error basis, they can do something like "Lock all www.*.XXX sites" (I'm sure it takes more than that, but you get the idea)

Also, another positive note is that there is more creative freedom for the adult industry when it comes to naming sites. because of the different domains, you can have both a .com and a .xxx site with the same name, and have no conflicts whatsoever.

This is just stupid. It was probably brought up by some computer illiterate christian freak (I said freak, not a normal christian). It makes it easier to find porn... the only way I see it helping is for really, really, (really x1000) bad web filters. Current ones are good enough, and any kid who has been on the internet for more than a day will outsmart his parents anyway, so this is just a waste of time and money. Just ask any 6th grader how they get on games at school and they will tell you "proxy", so they already know how to get onto blocked websites.

I think you might be talking about yourself. I really, really, (really x1000) don't think my kid is going to pull the wool over my eyes, thanks.

There is nothing wrong with the idea. It's not going to cause a problem at all, and it may even make situations for finding OR avoiding it just plain better.

Either it really doesn't affect me much...porn has never really done anything for me...no good looking at something if I can't go touch.

I am not too worried about either of my kids looking at porn, I have a fairly good relationship with them so I have a pretty decent idea of what they are looking at on the internet.
