    Vatican and porn

    You need to be a fully paid up member of the Vatican though before you get to see their extensive collection of child porn....they don't like to make it public, in the same way they don't like child-buggering bishops to be bothered by inconveniences as, say, justice.

    That'll be why they've blocked Vatican.xxx then.

    Never is a long time

    When SOPA passes and leaves the DNS in chaos, I'd expect some wag to set up a porn site and redirect vatican.xxx to it, if only to smirk.
