Not to mention that people offering legitimate adult services have had their rights trampled all over, but it's OK to put them out of business, they're sleazy anyway, right?
Craigslist has no fewer than a dozen legitimate items/services they strictly prohibit for sale on their website. You cannot sell puppies, kittens, alcohol, "safe and sane" fireworks, anything that might be remotely considered a weapon, and other legitimate products. The idea that category went on because they cared about protecting rights was pure hypocrisy.
Regarding allowing it because it would make it easier to catch; do you feel the same way about them setting up sections for child #*$!ography, methamphetamine manufacturing equipment, fake id cards, etc? If not, what’s the difference between setting up a honey pot for prostitution and those crimes?
