All Bark, No Bite

A friend writes:

DB, here's an ANONYMOUS guest post. ANONYMOUS. Capiche?

You know how every once in a while someone is scandlized when he or she stumbles across all the ads on craigslist by people looking for frum people to have sex with? We all wonder how real those ads are. (And how successful. C'mon, admit it.) It's impossible to know for sure, but here's a clue:

The article is about another kind of illicit ad on craigslist: sex-for-rent. The difference is that prostitution, unlike an affair, is illegal, so the police have taken a look at it. The result?

"Still, such cases investigated by the NYPD proved to be 'little more than a form of voyeurism that didn't result in an actual exchange of sex for rent,' [Deputy Police Commissioner Paul] Browne said."

So you see there's plenty of room to be dan l'kaf zechus
Thanks a lot Mr. Anonymous "Friend." If my shul Rabbi can't fulminate about craigslist, what's he supposed to denounce on Shabbos morning?
