Craigslist Removes Adult Section – Was It Pressure From The Government That Caused The Removal?

In a recent show of solidarity, 18 Attorney Generals from states across the U.S., had asked Craigslist to remove the adult content section. Apparently the pressure may have been too much for the San Francisco based online classified ad site only has a ‘censored’ where the site once was in black with white lettering. See below.

The ban is only for U.S. based online services and does not have any affect in other countries. No one has been able to reach Graigslist for comments as to why or when the dicision was made to remove the section.

So what do you think? Should Craiglsist have removed the section or should they have fought the government?
