  • So did you all grab your XXX domain?

    I think this whole fiasco is about the funniest thing I ever saw. Everybody except the porn industry is buying up all the domains and places like godaddy and such are raking in millions.

    I even saw a commercial last night sternly telling everybody that they better buy up their name.xxx before "someone else does". LMFAO!

    What a scam.

      But it sure could come in handy for my food porn and bacon porn empire...
      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

              I saw one of those commercials the other night, too. I wonder how many people have panicked and bought one so far?

                  Here's an article that explains it pretty well. http://www.cnn.com/2011/12/12/tech/w...ble/index.html

                  Basically, legit businesses that are concerned about their reputations are buying the .xxx versions of their domain names to keep them safe from actual porn producers buying them. GoDaddy is selling them for $99 as opposed to the $1.99-3.99 regular domain names, so they're raking in the cash.

                      the hilarious thing is my painting website is under my name, and there's a porn star with the same name. So the xxx will definitely be taken care of - it'll give my students and clients a little thrill and something to talk about.
