    Interesting. I've never used that section. But it is a good source of laughs most of the time. Personally, I think prostitution should be legal. But that's a whole different discussion that's a bit too political for this site.

    I don't think the erotic section of Craigslist should be closed. Chances are the guy was a jerk who would have started trouble on his own anyway, whether he used the internet to do it or not.

    So the guy is a creep who killed a masseuse. What does this have to do with Craigslist?
  5. A law enforcement official said Friday that Markoff's fingerprint was found on a wall of the Holiday Inn Express in Warwick, R.I. where a stripper has said she was tied up and held at gunpoint by a man she met through the site.

    Nothing says "America" like utilizing a random killing to impose your own unrelated morality onto a third party.

    I had no idea.

    You make a good point. Holiday Inn Express has gone too far :rolleyes:

    This guy could have met these people in a thousand other ways . . . it just happened to be through CL. I just don't see how CL is culpable in any way, shape, or form.

    over 60% of people responding to the poll on that news site said CL should close that portion of the classifieds.
