US Congress just passed HR 1865, "FOSTA", seeking to subject websites to criminal and civil liability when third parties (users) misuse online personals unlawfully.
Any tool or service can be misused. We can't take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back someday.
To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness!
Not just Craigslist: Reddit has banned certain sub-reddits, with several less well known sites also having ended their personals sections.
