>From following the TLDA mailing list it appears the operator of this .sex
TLD also runs a .god TLD that conflicts with another alternative TLD outside
the generic root servers. From the looks of it they have been involved in a
dispute with Joe Bapista over it. Interesting as a side issue. Highlights
some issues with the alternative name spaces.
