New craigslist measures regarding human trafficking and spam fighting
Posted on November 6th, 2008 by Craig Newmark
Folks, it's taken a lot of time and effort, but we're announcing some big moves today.
Jim Buckmaster, our CEO, has been working with Attorneys General throughout the country, law enforcement, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, NCMEC. Jim's done a great job.
We'll be working together to fight predators, which includes charging in our "erotic services" category. 100% of profits from this will be contributed to charity. An external accounting firm will be retained to track the details. We will NOT profit from this.
Ad spammers take advantage of craigslist, and we don't tolerate that. We'll be discussing this with ad spam technology providers and others in court. We're not litigious, but this is a good complement to our technology efforts.
