In Are there red light districts in St. Petersburg or Moscow? OP is asking about prostitution in Russia. At first I thought the reason OP was interested in the red light district was because he thought it might be dangerous and wanted to avoid it.
But then I saw that people in the comments started advising OP to look for prostitutes online and OP asking if that was safe.
Is that really what went on here, or did I miss something?
Prostitution is illegal in Russia. The authorities in Moscow have made a serious attempt to eliminate it.
I know the crime OP appears to be considering isn't all that horrible, and I don't really judge OP. But it's a crime nonetheless. Isn't this question against the rules in some way? I would assume that there's a rule against encouraging illegal activity.
The answers in Are questions about “controversial” practices allowed? seem clearly to indicate that questions about prostitution are risky, even if it's legal in the country in question. In this case it's not even legal.
I guess the answers seem fine, as they discourage OP from trying it (some also mention that it's illegal.)
However, should the question be closed, or the comments encouraging and asking about illegal activity be removed?
