AGs: CraigsList Should Drop Adult Ads

Craigslist should remove its adult services section because the website cannot adequately block potentially illegal ads promoting prostitution and child trafficking, attorneys general in 17 states demanded Tuesday in a joint letter. "Only Craigslist has the power to stop these ads before they are even published," said Kansas attorney general Steve Six in a statement Tuesday. "Sadly, they are completely unwilling to do so." The joint letter acknowledged Craigslist faces the prospect of losing revenue if it were to remove the adult services section/KXLY. More here.

Question: Should Craigslist remove the adult services section from its Web site in an effort to block potentially illegal ads promoting prostitution and child trafficking?
