Craigslist Exterminates Adult Services Listings Around the World

Paul Lilly

Craigslist, the popular online classifieds site, has closed down its adult services section from all of its international portals, ABCNews reports .

"This move is another important step in the ongoing fight to more effectively screen and stop pernicious prostitution ads," Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthals said.

Blumenthal was one of several U.S. Attorneys General who put pressure on Craigslist to remove its controversial adult services listings between our own borders. At first, Craigslist censored out the listings, and then removed them completely four months ago.
