    Not a fan of the practice. But, I remember the same argument against Craigslist's ads. Craiglists did shut them down, and the ads moved to Backpage. I would argue that having the known "hub" for such activities at least gives Law Enforcement a tool to help catch it. It isn't like it is called the Oldest Profession in the World and it won't go somewhere else to another site.

    It's all about money. Shut off the source of income and add fines and penalties until they do away with the ads.

    There is no point in appealing to their conscience. If they had any conscience they never would have allowed this type of advertising to begin with.
