Policing Craigslist

OK. This is not a story about Sen. Craig -- this is a story about the real Internet craigslist.

It's basically a message board for everything from jobs and real estate to dating personals and nasty sex stuff.

But law enforcement is beginning to police the message board to find and arrest prostitutes and potential customers.

Just a fun story. The Internet offers anonymity, and that can be good, if you're trying to remain anonymous, but it can also be bad if the "hooker" you're communicating with is actually a cop.
