Scary Internet Sex Much Worse Than Paper VarietyBy Edward Cone | Posted Thursday, May 21, 2009 16:05 PM
Craigslist is having a little spat with the State of South Carolina.
SC attorney general Henry McMaster singled out the online service for ads pertaining to what some call "adult-oriented" fare.
Craigslist then went to court to keep McMaster from filing criminal charges against its execs.
First, though, Craigslist pointed out that similar ads run in print publications across the Palmetto State.
Some people think that McMaster, who may seek higher office, is using the internet as a bogeyman. He'd look like a bluenose if he went after the papers, but there's still political capital in demonizing the net.
