Craigslist Gets Censored
Craigslist, the online classifieds site responsible for everything from selling couches to hiring clowns for birthday parties, has quietly changed its “adult services” section — which has been the focus of controversy due to the heavy presence of prostitution services — to an eerie, blacked-out “censored.” –JCL
’TIS THE REASON…
Embattled online classified service Craigslist apparently made a change to its website early Saturday, censoring its adult services section.
The section that usually reads “adult services” was replaced by the word “censored.”
It was not immediately clear whether Craigslist removed the adult services and replaced them with the “censored” section that had a link that was not active. But for users who accessed the account outside the U.S., the erotic services link was still active.
