Seeking Prudes: Craigslist Cracks Down on Sex Ads

After coming under fire from 40 different state attorney generals, Craigslist has agreed to crack down on those advertising sex for sale. The classified website will more effectively rid its erotic services section of ads law enforcers deem to be illegal. Perhaps staying true to its name, the erotic marketplace has notoriously been plagued with pornography and prostitution.

Vendors will now have to provide valid identification before they post a sexy ad, thanks to the new agreement between the state officials and the company. In addition, ad posters must pay a $10 fee, using a credit card. Craigslist will donate the fee to charities that combat child exploitation and human trafficking.

Offline sex for sale is usually associated with seedy neighborhoods and other crime, like drugs and violence. Is prostitution all right with you, so long as it stays on the Internet and on private property, or do officials have a duty to uphold the prohibition online, too?

LOL at yester. But I live in a neighborhood full of prostitutes and they still walk the streets. I think it's because the internet is a bigger access area and if they can't tax it, ya can't sell it. I'd rather you get an e-mail than my little sister walk home from school and see you doing your business with a client.

Yeah, as long as it's illegal authorities have to uphold the law. Prostitution can't stay online, so those transactions end up in somebody's neighborhood. If they want to change the laws, I could live with that but until then, there's got to be some control.
