This is another article about the alleged craigslist crackdown on prostitution.
One of the problems with craigslist that it shows that the people who are flagging the ads in the erotic services section are competing ‘escorts’. How’s that user policing working out?
The other thing is yet another quote from craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster and his alleged disdain for criminal activity…
Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster said preventing site misuse and improving public safety is the company’s highest priority.
“The incidence of crime on Craigslist is actually exceedingly low, considering the tens of millions of legitimate ads posted each month by well-intentioned users,” Buckmaster said. “But no amount of criminal activity is acceptable, and as Craigslist has grown, we have become aware of instances where our free services were being misused to facilitate illegal activities.”
You’ve become aware? That sounds like you’ve just found out about it. I know someone who has been following the criminal activity on your site for almost 3 years. And if the crime on craigslist is so unacceptable why haven’t you taken any real measures to curb it?
Just more lip service.
