I have to admit I’m a little sad about this post from Above the Law. Not that I’d ever partake in the darker side of Craigslist. I’m just always melancholy when the moral police step on the toes of people who vote with their feet. There has always been a thriving market for the world’s oldest profession, but Craigslist has withdrawn even its tacit support:
llinois 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.
Apparently Ms. Madigan would rather have people publicly trolling the streets rather than meeting by choice and mutual consent in private apartment buildings.
