Schools buying .xxx domains for "protection"

http://j.mp/rXNulu  (CBS)

   "Schools nationwide, including The University of Missouri and
    Washington University, are snapping up .xxx domain names to avoid
    links of their names to porn sites."

Extortion via gTLD, plain and simple, enabled by the slimiest 1% of
the Internet, the domain-industrial complex.

As far as I'm concerned, these purveyors of new gTLDs are on the same
"ethical" level as Bernie Madoff and Kenneth Lay.
