Senator Urges ICANN to Reject ".sucks" Domain

One U.S. senator is taking a stand against website names that end in ".sucks," saying that this naming scheme is "little more than a predatory shakedown scheme." Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D- W.Va) wrote a letter to the people who control Internet names, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (better known as ICANN), urging them not to approve the ".sucks" domain.
