If not, then what, now that you've killed the informant, the snitch, the tipster?
I think they are trying to kill the enabler in this case. This was very clearly a prostitution category. If you sample 50 listings, investigate, and they all come up prostitution I think there is a strong legal case against shutting the service down even if there were a couple legit massage ads in there. I think Craig's new this and could not hide any longer behind disclaimers.
So they take it down voluntarily, cry censorship and play victim, rather then risk a lawsuit.
