Help - what should I do?
Out of the blue I got a phonecall today and I'm not sure what to do about it. I need help from my intelligent and ethical hubpage friends. So please advise me.
A long time ago I started an online directory for my local area. I put a noticeboard up and locals can register and let others know what is going on in the area. I put up a lot of kid friendly stuff that is on in the area. - like fetes and shows etc...
The other side of this website is business and organization listings.
I keep talking to people and listing businesses and organizations but today I got a call from an unexpected quarter - an escort agency asking for a listing on my site.
I never want to be rude but I told the woman my site is really a family friendly one and I didn't think it would be appropriate to list her agency.
She said our industry saves a lot of families.
I laugh and I like to be open-minded and tolerant so I let her tell me more about the business and other interests she had which she was keen to do.
The conversation ended with me saying OK send an email and I will have to think about it.
I'm only frying small fish - it's not as if my site is a huge concern to anyone.
So there it is sitting in my inbox - an email from an escort agency with all the details for the listing on my site and I honestly dont know whether I should be listing it or not.
As they say, it is the oldest profession in the world and whether I list her agency or not will not change that but it has thrown me because on the one hand I want to be fair and equitable whereas on the other hand I think I should keep an adult-free reputation on my site.
Am I sounding too prudish or what? I need some feedback from my fellow hubbers about this.
Even newspapers make a space for this so shouldn't I?
But I don't know.
