  People don't like .xxx
Citing the 6,000+ letters and e-mails they have recieved so far, Michael Gallagher, assistant commerce secretary for communications and information, wants ICANN to not begin issuing .xxx sites just yet. Why they couldn't bring this ups months ago is beyond me.
CANN board members were scheduled to consider the proposal later Tuesday at a meeting in California, but an ICANN spokesman noted that the proposed administrator of the domain, ICM Registry, had already agreed to a one-month delay.

Backers of the site argue that use of the .xxx extension would be voluntary, but would create a clearly identifiable area of the Internet that could be blocked for certain users.

ICM chairman Stuart Lawley said the company agreed to the delay to allow ICANN to hear all views but added that he was "disappointed that concerns that should have been raised and addressed weeks and months ago are being raised in the final days before the board is scheduled to approve the agreement negotiated with staff."
