(NSFW) Should porn websites be given the extension .fap rather than .com?

Asked by poisonedantidote (21539 points ) October 4th, 2010

Should porn websites be given the extension .fap rather than .com? and would it help free up taken .com names?

also, would it help make child security programs easier to enforce?

Yes, it will free up www dirtysluts com to be used for a more wholesome purpose than porn.

They already have .xxx instead, but I think .fap is funnier.

No, mostly because fap is new and a fad (whereas x has been around for decades). Plus, it only describes male masturbation. My money’s just as green (or plastic) as a guys, so don’t count me out as a customer.

Also, and maybe this is just me, but I hate the term fap. It turns something joyful and possibly hot for others to watch into something that sounds like an official term for wet farts.

I do not think so. My libertarian hackles rise when I hear such a plan. There are plenty of filter programs parents or bluenoses can employ to protect them from content that they do not want to see. I’m only in favor of government action when that’s the best way, or the only way to solve a problem. In this case,it’s not the only way, or even the best way.

Further, if we did legislate a special domain for porn, who would decide those grey areas like sites dealing with self exams for breast cancer, safe sex, etc? Also, what legal authority would enforce it? The world police? The UN? If it were a US only action, all the porn sites would just move to friendlier soil. Finally, there are already tons of dot-com porn sites out there that have worked hard to build their page rank and reputation. It would not be fair to them to suddenly change the rules.

Very bad idea. Leave my dot-com porn alone. :-)
