Craigslist To Change Adult Listings [uk.reuters.com]
Online classified site Craigslist will replace its "erotic services" ads with a new adult category "to bar flagrant prostitution and #*$!," the Connecticut attorney general's office said on Wednesday.Craigslist's sex-service listings have faced intense scrutiny following the April 14 murder of 25-year-old masseuse Julissa Brisman, who advertised on Craigslist in Boston. Philip Markoff, a 23-year-old Boston University medical student, was charged with killing Brisman and with attacks on two other women he met through Craigslist.

Officials from Craigslist were not immediately available to comment.

Great, now auto-flag the "singles" ads that include the words Benefactor and Generous. It won't stop the CL hookers and crazies from using the site, but it might make the singles section more usable.

I never understood the reasoning behind allowing it.

They're more than capable of blocking free puppies and legal gun sales, why not blatant prostitution?

It's all about the money.

Always has been.
