Craigslist Dropping Erotic Services Ads

Associated Press: Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says that Craigslist is getting rid of its "erotic services" ads and will create a new adult category that Web site employees will review.

Madigan's office said Wednesday that such existing ads on Craigslist will expire in seven days.

Madigan and the attorneys general for Connecticut and Missouri met with Craigslist officials last week seeking an end to ads they contend are advertisements for illegal sexual activities.

An e-mail sent to Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster was not immediately returned Wednesday morning.

Craigslist came under renewed pressure to remove the ads after a medical student in Boston was charged with the April killing of a masseuse he met on the site.

Duh! I’ve always been amazed that they had that category, and that it hadn’t been taken down LONG ago! It is SO OBVIOUSLY used by women and men prostituting themselves for money, and the bottom feeders who seek them out. It’s no wonder people have started being murdered. I’m surprised it didn’t happen sooner. The people who run Craigslist ought to be held accountable in some way. You can’t tell me they didn’t/don’t know what it’s being used for!
