By now, just about everyone involved in online media has heard of the ‘Craigslist killer‘. It’s a tragic story that has sparked a debate about Craigslist and the way it manages its online community.
It’s a touchy subject. There are more than a few people who believe
that Craigslist is helping to facilitate these crimes by providing a
hands-off environment. And there are more than a few people who
believe that Craigslist simply offers a website and can’t be held
responsible for the actions of the people that use it. Good and
passionate arguments are made on both sides.
