Submission + - On the Ethics of TLD Censorship (vortex.com) 1

NoOnesMessiah writes: I run my own name servers for a variety of reasons. Now, thanks to ICANN, I have to consider whether I go down the slippery slope of being a BS sifter by black-holing certain top-level domains.

Oh, I know those .TV, .WS, .INFO, and .CC TLDs are hiiiiiighly coveted, and I just can't wait for .COKE and .WALMART, but I can't help but think that brand-specific TLDs will be more abusive rather than useful. .RUSSIANMAFIA anyone? Can we get a .LULZSEC or .WIKILEAKS TLD while we're at it?

So my attitude it going to be, "use my name servers, deal with my real-world choices." Oh, I'm censoring all right. I know this. And its really going to help with the spam sorting and tagging. Question is, "as a network operator am I really over-stepping my bounds?" What do you think?
