Craigslist Shuts Down Adult Services!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

Aw shucks!

Craigslist has shut down their "Adult Services" section on their website two weeks after attorneys general demanded that the site block its controversial section.

Boooo!

Ha Ha, no, we kid, we kid.

We know he site has been under scrutiny with critics saying that "it couldn't adequately block potentially illegal ads promoting prostitution and child trafficking."

The site's section has now been replaced with a big black "CENSORED" bar.

Thoughts??

    I am glad they shut it down. Although, those hookers (male and female) were making Craiglist money money money.



  2. 2

    So much for that Justin Bieber look-alike you were interested in.

    Go to the "Casual Encounters" section. All the ho's are still there and posting ad's other than in the JOBS sections has always been free.

    Apparently the Mafia didn't like the competition and some attorneys general needed contributions to their reelection campaigns.

    You're a little late on this news, fattie. Besides, no one needs people like you trolling the ads for male hookers



  6. 6

    Could you be anymore late on reporting this? I read this like Friday. So you must be like the last person with a website to post this? Ha!



  7. 7

    I have never had a look at Craig's List, adult or otherwise. But aren't there serious freedom of speech issues at stake here?



  8. 8

    Someone already pointed out that all of the adult services content seems to be shifting to the 'casual encounters' section. So BFD.

    I think this is a great idea for our culture. The world revolves too much around sex. Take a look at all the filth on tv, and the way people dress and behave in public places.
    I think this is a tremendous step for mankind. I agree that this section purely promoted prostitution child trafficking. I know first hand many of my own friends who are "in the Biz" use it for attaining new clientele. Although i love my friends dearly, it doesn't make it right. This world is rotting with too many allowance. I know we have the right to freedom, and expression, but at the cost of our culture?

  12. 12

    the next thing on the list is the Scientology posts disguised as self help throughout the site (sneaky cult)



  13. 13

    Shit. Where am I gonna get my male whores now?! I ain't driving around no more street corners.



  14. 14

    It's about time! Nothing good comes from that kind of collection of skievy hot mess.

    Prostitution has been around since the beginning of time. It will always be here. It will never go away and those in the business will find other creative alternatives to promote their services. Just sayin.



  18. 18

    what did they shut down. i just looked at t eh stie and there still appears to be ads up



  19. 19

    where do you go to see the "censored" bar. i cant een find that



  20. 20

    now that they have solved the sex problem, another good idea would be a constitutional amendment to ban alcohol sales; that will certainly stop people from drinking …



  21. 21

    that sucks for you perez….now how are you going to find guys to pay to actually have sex with your nasty ass?



  22. 22

    No offense but just because the Adult Services is sensored, the shady ladys (and men) selling their services just moved over to the Therapedic Services and other areas. Still there. Like Conan Obrian tweeted, buying a used Futon is going to be alot more intresting now.

    Re: Dick Gozinya – Yes but freedom of speech ends when illegal activity begins. The real concern is advertising prostitution, against the will of the prostitute, and human trafficking. Craigslist is only fighting this because it makes them millions!



  24. 24

    Child trafficking is bad, but fucking for money (betwen two consenting adults) ..what's so bad about that?
    This society is so sexed crazed, and sex is promoted in almost all industries (film, marketing, fashion, etc…), why get all puritanical now?



  25. 25

    it was on the news few days ago



  26. 26

    Typical fucking American bullshit! Always trying to tell ADULTS what they can and can not do with THEIR bodies. The Attorney General's Office can go fuck themselves right up the ass with a rubber fist.



  27. 27

    GOOD!



  28. 28

    Re: GothamGirl – How does advertising massage services constitute "illegal activity"? I don't think there are too many ads on there where the poster says, "I'll come over to your house and have sex with you for five hundred dollars." Dick is right—there are major freedom of speech issues here.

    This sounds like a lot like regression to me. I never browsed Craig's List though.

    This stymie will be temporary. It's like steam. It'll just find another place to erupt. Craigslist was getting no end of grief from TPTB over this.

    THANX FOR advertizing craigslist
