Speaking of craigslist’s ugly ass official blog, CEO Jim Buckmaster posted this entry the other day about craigslist’s new phone verification system for their erotic services section. I have yet to check it out but I’m sure I can find numerous ways that it can be circumvented. Anyway he claims that it cut down on the amount of erotic service ads by 80%. That’s still 20% too many. Even one instance of child prostitution or human trafficking is still too many.
Mr. Buckmaster also said that they are looking for additional ways to eliminate criminal activity on craigslist. I’ve got two ways that would eliminate most if not all the crime on craigslist. Take away the anonymity and do away with the erotic services section.
I’ll be awaiting my consultant’s check Jim.
