Craigslist to tell Congress why it cut adult ads

Section censored

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Craigslist is to explain to a Congressional committee why it removed ads for escorts and other adult services and replaced the section with the word "censored".

The site has been under attack for supposedly supporting the trafficking of minors, despite employing lawyers to pre-screen every advert before it appeared in the adult section.

It has repeatedly said that it works with police forces to keep child traffickers off the site, and points out that most other adult ad services make no checks at all. It also donates profits from the adult section to charity.

But the site has not explained why it lost patience and removed the section at the end of August. This followed ill-informed attacks by 17 US Attorneys General.

Craigslist will testify before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security later today. ®
