Craigslist Proud of 90% Drop in Erotic Services Listings
A collaborative effort between Craigslist, 40 state Attorneys General, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) has, over the past year, resulted in a 90-percent drop in "Erotic Services" listings on the popular site. A Craigslist spokesperson called the change "spectacular," according to ArsTechnica.
For months now, Craigslist has implemented measures such as phone verification and credit card authorization, and the results speak for themselves. Not everyone is happy, though; the Cook County Sheriff's Office in Illinois filed suit against Craigslist last week for facilitating prostitution.
