its true, is one rule for them and another for everyone else. I imagine its only a matter of time before all these explicit domain names are available. They'll have to eventually look at their rules again and see how far behind the times they are. Although i do notice sexytime.ie is allowed...

Not spam

It was not spam as others had posted links to domain name debates such as sex.ie etc I included a link to show that they are becoming more Tolerable thats all.

Sallysgap.ie & .com are still there, surley it's worth parking for a while until finally let us loose in the .ie playground

Not sure what the irish tourist board would have to say about it be they might pay you to walk away or else let the revenue loose on you....:D

Interesting post.

I wish they would adapt some sanity and remove that stupid rule about "offensive" words OR simply implement a proper block / black list of domains that they will not register.

That they would allow anyone to attempt to register a domain that they had no intention of ever allowing was insane. I tried to register porn.ie at least 6 times before they added it to the list :)

Having a black list would be an admission of their prudishness though. :)
Not really. It would be a sane way of specifying which domains they won't allow to be registered. A LOT of ccTLD (and gTLD) registries have block / reserved lists. People may not like the fact that they cannot register domains on those lists, but it's a fair system, as nobody can register them

The main issue with the IEDR's current system is that there is far too much subjectivity.

For example, the IEDR have a geographic rule. However they do not specify anywhere in their rules what exactly constitutes Ireland.

From my perspective subjectivity equates with headaches and increases the cost of selling IE domains. If we have to play email ping pong with the registry and the registrants then it makes the IE ccTLD a lot more expensive to offer.

With a .eu, for example, the likelihood of there being any human intervention in the process is minimal. Close to 100% of registrations get processed automatically without any delays
