    I am shocked and amazed as to how backwards and strange America is becoming these days.

    Here we have at least six or seven States Attorney generals going after heterosexual people on Craigs list , who happen to be exchanging their sexual services over the internet.
    But this is the same country that decriminalizes Homosexuality, and legalizes Sodomy and Homosexual marriages, or is attempting to legalize homosexual marriages?!
    What the heck is going on here in America.? :razz:

    I wouldn't say trying. I'd say they're doing a pretty damn good job of it.

    And you're the one that started the thread. Why act like you don't know what the hell I'm talking about?

    Now dont be confusing yourself and working up into a lather

    Both heterosexual and homosexual sex for sale are criminal. Craigs list is just a new way to be a hooker. And as far as i know they are going after both.

    They're going after prostitution ads on craigslist.

    Craigslist Tells State AGs: Censor This!
    Craigslist's decision to 'censor' its adult services ads just throws gasoline on the flames. But is this fire really necessary or a cheap political publicity stunt?


    Probably the last thing Craig Newmark ever imagined was that the little email list he started back in 1995 would one day be at the center of a controversy over prostitution, the First Amendment, and the future of the InterWebs. But 15 years later, Craigslist is in the thick of a dispute over whether its ad service is aiding and abetting prostitution, or merely an exercise in free speech.

    The battle with Craigslist over its ads has been brewing for some time, thanks in part to highly publicized stories about the "Craigslist killer," Philip Markoff, who murdered three women advertising massage services on the online classifieds site. (Though one has to wonder, if Markoff had found identical ads in a newspaper would anyone have thought to call him, say, the "Boston Globe Killer"?)

    Things really kicked into gear last year, when South Carolina state attorney general Henry McMaster made a stink, demanding Craigslist shut down its adult ads in his state. That resulted in an even stinkier response from Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster, which included a temporary restraining order against AG McMaster. They then proceeded to Indian leg wrestle over who owned the rights to the suffix "Master."

    In May 2009, Craigslist compromised by kicking its Erotic Services category to the curb and creating a cleaner, more wholesome Adult Services category in its place. Craigslist also promised to monitor the ads more closely and to charge $10 per ad to keep out the riff raff and spammers.

    Fast-forward to August 2010, when 17 state attorneys general collaborated on an open letter to Craiglist [PDF], asking it to drop its adult ads. The letter is a bit scant on proof of actual wrongdoing but makes up for it with extra helpings of dramatic rhetoric:

    We sincerely hope craigslist will finally hear the voices of the victims, women and children, who plead with you to make this important change. We, too, call on craigslist to listen and respond now by shutting down the Adult Services section of its website. Such action is the right thing to do to protect innocent woman and children.

    Craigslist's decision to slap a big black "censored" label over its Adult Services section last weekend could have been an attempt to comply with the AGs' demands, but more likely it was Craiglist's way of saying "You want us to censor adult ads? Fine. Let's just see what happens, shall we?"

    There's no question Craigslist's promise to screen adult ads is essentially a joke or that putting a "censored" label over the Adult Services section has done nothing to remove these kinds of ads -- try a simple search on the terms "escort," "exotic," or "adult" if you're not convinced (though you'll have to wade through a fair number of ads for Ford Escorts, exotic animals, and adult swim lessons).

    If you don't let these people advertise under "Adult Services," they'll advertise the same services elsewhere -- whether it's in Personals, Small Business, or the Skilled Trade Services section. And as Buckmaster has pointed out in numerous blog posts, they can certainly advertise just as easily outside of Craigslist -- like in the local papers of those jurisdictions in the AGs' respective backyards or on eBay's classifieds. So far, we haven't heard much about state AGs going after those guys.

    There's also no question that going after Craigslist in an election year is cheap political theater. It's a heckuvalot easier to write a strongly worded letter (followed by a press release) to grab headlines for being tough on prostitution without having to getting your hands dirty by, say, actually being tough on prostitution.

    Yes, I know prostitution is illegal, my point is here in America they have decriminalized
    Sodomy, and homosexuality, and they are trying to bring a perverse illegal act, into the mainstream with homosexual marriage.! And we have states attorney generals going after
    prostitution ,when they should be really going after the sodomy of homosexual marriage.!:razz:
