Do we spot a flash of yellow journalism from the corner of our eye? Or are we simply suspending our disbelief out of a longtime love for All Things Craig? Craigslist has long been accused of being a conduit for crime— guess that's what happens when humanity is allowed to govern itself within a given system, no? Some anti-Craigs, however— including this one in Canada— claim that the site is actually losing a significant amount of readership over its handling of fraudulent ads that perpetrate everything "from child prostitution rings and alleged murders to scams involving phony puppies." Holding our tongues, holding our tongues ... Let's turn to democracy for the commentary:
