How is charging $60/year going to protect children from "online smut"?
if anything it'll still be that less reputable will continue to use
less expensive domains.

Also I'm curious how much of that $60 will go to ICANN packet? If not

heaven in fact that reminds me of another TLD decision mentioned at nanog
that ICANN is about to make official...
