ICANN defer decision on .xxx

(AP)
A global Internet oversight agency odeferred a decision until June on whether to create a ".xxx" Internet suffix as an online red-light district. The board of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN, initiated a 70-day process of consultations on a domain that could help parents block access to porn sites. Use of the ".xxx" suffix would be voluntary, though, and would not keep such content entirely away from minors.
