OH, that discussion! They's have a lot of resistance from some really influential "COM" sites.
The proposal was actually to create a separate group for the porn sites so they could be more
easily blocked from schools, businesses, and politicians' offices. There was no discussion of
.COM going away, but perhaps a second business suffix added.

It's political discussions. Have they ever been speedy? Don't worry about it.
