In 2009, Dart sued Craigslist in an effort to have that site remove its adult ads.
Although the suit was unsuccessful, the site ultimately submitted to the pressure, voluntarily shutting down its erotic services section in 2010.
Nor do these policies actually aid survivors of trafficking in the sex industry.What is new, and alarming, is the precedent this sets.One cop can shut down a site’s ability to do business simply because it engages in speech he doesn’t like, even if that speech is legally protected. What constitutes “brand-damaging” is a matter of opinion.American Express had already pulled out earlier in the year.
This leaves Bitcoin and prepaid Vanilla Visa gift cards as the only ways to pay for advertising on the site.Visa and Master Card are fine with doing business with the KKK, for example. Sex workers shouldn’t be the only ones who are concerned about this, even if few people seem to be concerned about sex workers.
