    I laughed at this.


    "Misuse of the site is exceptionally rare compared to how much the site is used for legal purposes. Regardless, any misuse of the site is not tolerated on Craigslist,"

    and I was upset with this.

    Mr Dart called the site "the single largest source of prostitution in the nation". Hasn't he heard of BHW.LOL.

    [FONT=&quot]Craigslist is way to problematic - I really don't think that adult ads should be mixed with "all-ages" ads. Personally, I'll stick with adult sites which offer classified ads like NaughtyReviews.com. It just makes more sense: put the adult ads where the interested adults are looking for them.[/FONT]

    If I'm not mistaken, the same thing came up a few years ago. They busted this big prostitution ring that was placing ads on CL. They overcame flurry of bad publicity and they will probably overcome this one too. I'm sure CL has very well paid lawyer(s) so I wouldn't worry.
