Is Craigslist the world's biggest bordello?

I’ve been on Craigslist looking for workout equipment and what not. I have ventured into the personals out of pure curiosity and oh boy. There are some freakydeaky people out there. I’m sure there are a lot of hookups that are going on between two consenting adults. Really isn’t that there business?

Now if there a minor involved, that is just nasty and they need to shut those people down. Get 20/20 on the job. If there is money exchanged that is clearly breaking the law as well. However, I don’t think Craigslist has to be the police of what people do. They should be more careful in what they allow to be placed on their site, no doubt. Beyond that they can’t stop someone from answering an ad or from hunting for sex.

The saddest conclusion that I gathered from perusing the personals is that people are lonely. In some way they are looking to make a deeper connection. Now, I am not talking about the freaks out there. Them aside, there are a lot of people who are just looking for someone else to connect with. People are searching, and unfortunately they’re just looking in the wrong places.
