    Craigslist Adult Services Section Shut Down

    Craigslist shutdown its adult services listings on Friday replacing the link with a black bar with the word "censored" where the listings previously appeared.

    The move comes after years of pressure to remove the ads, including an open letter from 17 state attorneys general in late August.

    Anybody else wondering about the inclusion of the word "queen" there?

    So the working girls will move the listings to "casual encounters."

    Another beauty in the move to censorship; ignore the demand, cut supply. Are these people totally clueless about basic economics?
