The quality of CL overall is getting pretty bad. As a full time reseller, I post regularly. While I'm sad the personals are gone I'd use it a lot to meet people , CL overall has become a cesspool.
Craigslist just took down all personals sections :( : craigslist
The lack of professional moderators guarantees CL will be a cesspool. Sadly, I'm not surprised. I'm not really sure what it was that caused Craigslist to slip more and more into the ghetto, though I suspect it was perhaps Backpage-related. I think I'll sound unavoidably classist in saying this, but maybe when Backpage cracked down on the lower-class escorts that used it and they moved to CL, everyone else followed?
I always sort of viewed Backpage as a trashier and worse Craigslist, but it may be a perception borne from being based in the SF Bay Area. I believe it was a few things. Adult services got shutdown which probably pushed some of those people to Backpage and the rest to casual encounters, then when Backpage got destroyed by the feds the "sellers" just came flooding in Craigslist. And then because CL spam filtering is trash, sex workers ads started dominating that section.
It was a dumpster fire, at least in my area.
I had been corresponding with someone and post shutdown I quickly emailed and he still got it. This sucks so bad. I literally just was emailing with the biggest MILF ever, and then it was all shut down. Goddamn this comment pumped me up. At first I was like, "nah, I don't think I do," reread the comment again and again, and now I'm all "hell yeah I do!!!
If you're not kidding, you can still email her. The email relay is system wide, so it still works. If a gun maker can't be held liable when their gun is used in a crime, then it would seem logical that a website can't be either. This is an excellent argument. Perhaps we'll see a challenge to this law soon, in a way that forces courts to either rule a gun makers liable or b overturn the legislation. My opponent wants to change the law against child exploitation and prostitution.
I don't elect me. I'm pretty pissed about this. I met so many people through Craigslist and so many great experiences. It will be interesting to see what other platforms will fill the vacuum. Sniffies is positioned to grow into the m4m space. I never got banned from it though I never blatantly asked for pussy.
Too bad every chick from there that wants to meet is either depressed or underage. I had to get rid of it because it began throwing up popup ads every couple of minutes. Commenting just to commiserate. Absolute best fucking relationship. We're getting married next year. I had several really positive, fun FWB situations from personals before that. Feels like a major part of the internet just disappeared. To their defense it's one of those bills that was worded in such a way that being against it would just make you look really bad.
Feels like the internet is really tightening it belt. I remeber when people where selling weed in causal hook up section. I had lots of fun experiences on Casual Encounters, with both males and females. I liked to browse when bored at work just to see what people were getting up to in my area.
It's sad to see craigslist has absolutely no backbone at all, this isn't even a signed law yet. We need a better alternative but even then it will take ages to get the word out to the level that craigslist is at.
Want to add to the discussion?
This is such a bummer. Anyone have any ideas for alternatives? So much for the internet being free For instance, all of Canada's casual encounters are still up, CL is based in US so they can't risk it, but a foreign country that doesn't have the same laws could def run a casual encounters site.
Prepare for the glorious migration of all the collective craigslist fucksquatches to Fetlife, Tinder, Grinder, and misc personals boards. It is not all seediness and criminal actiivity, I had some bad experiences on a few occasions, but overall, the good experiences outweighed the bad. Best place on the internet to get straight to the point of what you are looking for, be that love, a fwb, a hookup, or a missed connection, and if you so chose, it did not have to have money involved like backpage or many of the other supposed "personal" sections on sites like cl.
It'll drive them nuts. I can't stop laughing at that response. I need to find the perfect Hannity page to post one on. I'll promise him, personally, the best knobjob of his life and send him a picture of Trump in drag!
Lol let's make them take down their own sites then they will finally realize what idiots they are. It passed in the Senate and in the house.
You'd have just as much luck hooking up in CNN's comments. I guess you don't realize just as many Dems voted for this bill as Repubs did.. Can't even tell the real hookers though anymore.
Every post is just a link to an empty IG page. No that got ruined too, you can only post a number as the title and no text in the actual post, only pictures. One way to eliminate a lot of fake ones is by doing a Google reserve image search. Of course the same fake pics could be used on other sites, but you can at least know it's fake if the image is of some porn model and it's on websites and was posted as early at Ik I barely found out. I used it to hook up with others in the T4M mostly. Fetlife, Tinder and grindr are my only options now.
Wondering if this bill is gonna force tinder, okc, grindr, etc to all close too? I mean those are all well known to be places for sex workers. I know CL personals is considered the bottom of the barrel. Ive had some mild success meeting people on there More success than traditional dating sites.. I just found out. I know that Im late to the party. That seems to be my life. Had to jump into this diccussion after reading how open and honest everyone has been.
I have a great deal of Love for the CL personals. I use to think like some. That is was for the bottom of the barrels. But we are only human. We have wants and needs. So, I started using them a little over 2 years ago. And even though there was a lot, and I mean a lot of fakes and flakes and games. I managed to meet some beautiful and great women and had a lot of good times.

Some one night stands. Even 2 long relationships. Its definitely sad to see the personals gone. Those of you who had been there for a long time. You got a lot more notches than me. I will admit Im a little jealous. Definitely wish I had discovered and started using the personals a few years earlier. But no use of crying over spilt milk.

Life has a way of even-ing out. Perhaps all the prostitutes will move elsewhere and CL will bring it back when laws get changed letting free adults get paid for sex In all seriously I got all my first gay sex through CL. There is no chill gay bar by me just a young one with blaring music which is horrible. It's interesting that other countries Casual encounters are up.
