(prostitution) New Mexico Attorney General: is craigslist violating the consent agreement?

(last paragraph) -- it would certainly help if he would look into craigslist a bit more... here is where I would start:

(5th paragraph) "It would help our vice unit if they were able to monitor it just a little bit more," she said. "And the person that was advertising on their Web site if they were able to look at what they were soliciting, and what they were selling, that would definitely help us."

--> my guess is that craigslist doesn't *want* to do anything more than they think they *have* to do... to effectively address the prostitution problem, they would have to hire an adequate number of customer service people and forgo profits... (that's never been something they have been willing to do...)


P.S. it's pretty bad form to claim the money charged for the erotic ads is going to charity but refuse to make it clear that it does not in fact end-up in their pockets... (like the rest of the profits...) D.
