As we were recently discussing, the apparently forthcoming .xxx domain due to be used for the porn business has been delayed again. Itís emerged that the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers has again postponed a decision on a domain for sex sites. ICANN had been expected, at its quarterly meeting in Vancouver to approve or kill the domain. Now, itís a waiting game once more.

"It was impossible to get sufficient time for consideration by the Government Advisory Committee members and therefore the board, the chairman decided to postpone the consideration," CANN president Paul Twomey said.

"Within the first quarter of next year is my expectation when it will come back up," he said.
