BOSTON (Reuters) – Online classified site Craigslist will replace its “erotic services” ads with a new adult category following pressure by state authorities after the murder of a masseuse who advertised on the site.
The “erotic services” section will end within seven days and be replaced by an “adult services” category where advertisements will be individually screened by Craigslist staff, Craigslist said in a statement on Wednesday.
The measures could set a precedent for similar sites, said Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, who led a 40-state task-force on Craigslist and campaigned publicly for tighter controls on the San Francisco-based service.
“Closing the erotic services section, a blatant Internet brothel, should lead to other blocking and screening measures, and set a model for other sites, if Craigslist keeps its word,” he said.
Craigslist’s sex-service listings have faced intense scrutiny since the April 14 murder of 25-year-old masseuse Julissa Brisman, who advertised on Craigslist in Boston.

Everyone’s got ’em – totally stupid, assbreathed, dickhead douchbags.
“HOPEFULLY its YOUR code, and then I can hang out here longer and intrude your personal space and touch everything in your cube and pray that SARAHAAAHAHAAA comes in so I can put the moves on and YELL INTO YOUR EAR and continue to invade your personal space!”
It is a shame these people don’t just stay home. “TWO HOURS TO GO A MILE”. Hey, you fcktard, you remember all those other cars you saw in traffic? It was probably all of us – we were in traffic TOO. Did we go yell it into YOUR ear? NO. So go walk into that traffic with your stupid ass hat – preferrably into the traffic that is MOVING.
