Craigslist Pulls Erotic Services

After meeting with attorneys general of Illinois, Craigslist operators agreed to remove their Erotic Services category. It will be replaced by another adult-themed category which will be stringently moderated by the company. The ads currently running in the Erotic Services category will expire next week.

Craigslist has repeatedly been cited by lawmakers and others for offering a forum in which prostitutes could advertise their services. The site more or less refused to admit any wrongdoing or change their protocol until a man who trolled the site for victims was arrested for murder.
