Gang of 17 state attorneys general intimidate popular site into censoring its users’ ads
Bowing to years of threats and intimidation by 17 state attorneys general, Craigslist has shuttered its Adult Services section, pilloried by the AGs for supposedly fostering prostitution and child abuse, problems which have festered for centuries.
The Craigslist home page now shows a black bar reading “censored” where the Adult Services link formerly appeared. Adult Services ads are estimated to have generated about $36 million of annual business for the nont-for-profit site, about a third of its total income.
By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die.
