Craigslist, the widely-used classified ads website, has removed its ‘personals’ section, which displays dating and friendship listings, from its U. website in response to a new bill against sex trafficking passed by Congress Wednesday.
S., spawning Twitter accounts devoted to sourcing the strangest, funniest and most heartwarming posts.
One such account, called Craigslist Love, has nearly 60,000 followers.
Craigslist is all about no-frills buying and selling.
As with any service used by millions of people, there will always be a few bad apples that try to spoil the bunch.
If you want your response to not contain your true e-mail then you may want to use a disposable e-mail address such as one from Mailinator, Gish Puppy or others to conceal your identity.
This will help preserve your anonymity throughout the entire transaction instead of just during the initial inquiry.
If you go browsing Craigslist looking for a “casual encounter,” you won’t find it.Under the new bill, individuals who own, manage or operate a website “to promote or facilitate the prostitution of another person” can face fines and prison terms of up to 10 years.Penalties can also be imposed on a person who “promotes or facilitates” prostitution of five or more people, or “acts with reckless disregard that such conduct contributes to sex trafficking.” This means that the owners of websites which allow the posting of classified ads, such as Craigslist, could face charges or prison terms even if third parties misuse the service to promote prostitution.Craigslist also recommends that you don't meet in a secluded place, or invite strangers into your home.Always take your cell phone along with you, and make sure to tell a friend or family member where you are going before meeting a buyer or seller.
