IEDR bans pornographic domain names

Post by adamd164 » Wed Apr 01, 2009 8:22 pm

And some reckon the CCL has lost all influence on Irish society. :roll:

"An Irish adult website has blogged about the Irish domain registry banning adult domain names, including porn.ie and pornography.ie. The IEDR's reasoning is that the words 'porn' and 'pornography' are offensive and immoral. Of interest is how Sex.ie took legal action against the IEDR — and proved that neither word is offensive — yet still lost the case, as the IEDR are the highest authority in Ireland when it comes to deciding what is and isn't an offensive domain."

No sex we'er Irish! :roll:
Human communication is a very rickety rope bridge between minds. Its too narrow to allow but a few thoughts to cross at a time. Many are lost in the chasms of noise, suspicion, misinterpretation and shooting the message through dislike of the messenger.

what the hell is this crap!?! No organisation should have the right to deny a website based on it's name! I mean if they were arguing that the website's content was immoral and offensive, maybe we could have a (slightly more) rational discussion, but arguing that the website's name is immoral and offensive is about as ridiculous as claiming that a Himalayan cattle herder called Hitler is immoral and offensive because his namesake was a Nazi.

The "words" are immoral and offensive? Holy f**k, these people are sensitive. (and morons) I wonder how they would react to a gay porn website called catholicpriests.ie?

I'm sure a fair portion of them have life long membership to the aforementioned website.
