Strangely enugh the entire ADULT market is pushing very hard for .SEX for
the exact reason that MOST of them are moral and ethical in the way they
operate their sites.

I guess that's close enough to 100%.

The remainder we have to leave up to the ethics of ISP's.

I can show you the archives of a mail list of people discussing this and
supporting it all the way.

No time like the present.

I feel I've said a million times, if you configure as suggested you'll gain
results.  I really don't want to hear how patheticly in apt you are at
following simple instructions.

How do you know this?  Are you saying now - in a public forum, that AURSC
doesn't provide an equal to or better quality of service?  That's a VERY
VERY BIG presumption Rick.  Wasn't it you who brought up the matter of

How about you TRY it and then tell me.

The only reason I remain under AH.NET is because I'm very well known under
it.  I'd love to move over to a&#167;a and have http://a.a as my web site, and
in fact some people do use this, but those same people constantly use
at&#167; and as their contact points.  Not to mention
it's been put in just about every project and product I've released.  

I have no reason to change my contact details instantly.  It would only
cause confusion, so I stay right where I am.

Anyway - AHNET is very special to us.  Perhaps you shodul read about where
the name came from :)

Because it's already allocated :)

Nope, actually less stringent overall.  You can read them if you like.

There you go quoting that number again.  I look forward to seeing your
report validating 99%.

>> I wonder what the next question will be?
><Rick shrugs and denies himself the opportunity to be rude>

I know what it will be - something around this 99% visability issue.
Problem is the servers are totally visible to 100% of the user of the
internet, so it's mute point.

Just like is also visible to 100% of the internet,
but 90% choose not to visit it.

You are CHOOSING not to visit AURSC.  Don't say that 99% of people also
follow in your footsteps because your wrong, and tha'ts very misleading to
people who don't yet understand what this is all about or are not yet up to
