Please, Pittsburgh Police, don't listen to bbbb. Why would anyone want to change the fact that the Internet gets sex workers off the street. Let's face it, prostitution is the oldest profession, and it will continue to be a part of society. Since bordellos have been outlawed, they've had to tough it out in the streets with the looming dangers of Johns, police, and pimps. Although not exactly "safe," the Internet takes some burden off the hands of the prostitute and the customer.

As you may have guessed, I think the practice should be legalized, taxed, and regulated. It's not the job of the city to police morality, rather to maintain a safe, healthy community. I don't see what sex online has to do with that.

I think CL is pretty much a joke. 97% of the ads are for girls webcam or they want you to join a site they say police are not allowed to join. I bet they are the cops

Craiglist in the pgh area is used mostly by gay men looking to hook up with other men, or just plain prostitution ads. When will the state police and local police do there jobs and start to bust people on this website? It's about time the police do the job the public pays them to do and put an end to these ads on craigslist.
