Craiglist Has Blocked Access To "Adult Services" Section

Facing pressure from human rights groups, law enforcement and other groups that feel Craigslist's adult services section contributes to human trafficking, the classified ads website has blocked access to the "adult services" section.

It is unclear whether Craigslist plans to permanently close this section of the website or if this is, as the NY Times has stated in an article titled Craigslist Blocks Access to ‘Adult Services’ Pages, "temporary protest against the outside pressure on the company, which has lasted several years."

Last month, the attorneys general from 17 states sent a letter to Craigslist’s CEO demanding them to remove the section from their pages.
