Daily Update

So guys, had a totally awesome day yesterday neglecting my studies to enjoy customer appreciation night at the local bar (free beer!). Time to get back on track with some more technology related news.

Today is a sad, sad day for many as craigslist has censored its adult services section. Now sporting a black "censored" bar where the services section was once located, the days of craigslist prostitution are near close to over. The decision to censor the adult services section came after a young medical student committed suicide in his jail cell after meeting a masseuse via the website known as craigslist. A group of attorney generals in the state of Connecticut rallied together to pressure craigslist into making the decision, stating that there were not nearly enough methods of protection against illegal content.

Many people are fighting to keep the adult services, saying that the judgement was a blow to free speech - what do you think?

  12. It's kind of awesome that Craig's List didn't just pull the link. The censored bar makes a much better statement about the situation.

  13. What the fuck; it's just the start of a bigger picture. Censoring is a beginning point, and it'll get progressively worse.

    Followed.

  21. I think it's a serious infringement upon free speech, tantamount to preventing people from hitting on one another in public areas

    'that's reserved for private residences and approved intimacy zones, sir. Move along'

    And the net closes in :<

  23. Damn :( Craigslist is useful useful for lonely people to meet other lonely people for awkward sex and if it is taken away how can lonely people meet up to have awkward sex? At least the free beer was the good part.
