Craigslist has been accused of helping promote prostitution. This fight has been an ongoing issue for years now, but critics say that pressuring Craigslist to shut down its "erotic services" section was not enough.
Recently, stories in letter-form have been published regarding the accounts of young women who claim they were exploited for sex by Craigslist ads.
Craigslist boss Jim Buckmaster claims that enough precautions have been taken to screen erotic material, and that it is unfair and disorganized to perform a criminal investigation on Craigslist.
