I saw these interviews about the Craig's List sex scandal on my flight home from BlogHer in NYC. Craig's list makes over 1/3 of it's revenue from selling sex online. These interviews melted my mind.

While I agree that the internet (and social media in particular) is a platform for the masses to create content and that we all have individual responsibility, I still do think there is a responsibility of the platform providers to provide safety, security, and yes - sometimes standards.

If Mark Zuckerberg won't allow breastfeeding on Facebook, can't Craig put an end to the human trafficking on his website? Who's responsibility is it?

Apparently money trumps morals for Craig and his crew.
