Craigslist pulls personal ads after passage of sex-trafficking bill
Online classified site Craigslist has pulled its entire personal ad section after Congress passed a new sex-trafficking bill that puts more liability on Web sites.
Why it matters: Smaller tech companies and advocates for sex workers had feared a chilling effect if the bill becomes law.
Craigslist said it couldn't afford the risk of continuing to host personal ads.
Not just Craigslist: Reddit has banned certain sub-reddits, with several less well known sites also having ended their personals sections.
The other side: Supporters of the bill say it was narrowly tailored to deliver justice for victims shut out of the civil court system, not hinder good actors on the internet.
