After pressure from multiple state attorney generals, Craigslist reluctantly pulled their "Adults Section," but not without making a statement. Rather than take the site down completely, they splashed the word "Censored" boldly across the page. Days later, even that came down.
Craigslist, according to Bloomberg, had become a bastion of sex and child trafficking advertisements, yet they stubbornly fought to maintain their estimated $44 million annual windfall from these ads.
Although Craigslist claimed to stand on their First Amendment rights, many suspect it was really about the huge profits from their questionable customers.
Proverbs 12:12 teaches, "The wicked desire the plunder of evil men, but the root of the righteous flourishes."
When the final chapter is written, Craigslist will likely regret their profiteering at the expense of many children.
