It's short sighted and shit, but the idea behind it is exclusively to protect women and children form traffickers. So, there is defintiely an issue. The flip side of this is that you're hurting sex workers who voluntarily make a living like this. Alternatives are sparse and I tihnk the latest figures show that since this has been put into place, the incidents of violence towards sex workers has increased as the Internet provided a way to put an arms length between johns and the men and women who service them.
Also sex traffickers aren't exactly the sort of people that will be dissuaded from their activities and in the cases of children the people paying for them aren't exactly the sort of people that will be dissuaded from their activities either. What this law does is not help the issue, but hides it, makes the men and women who were using this to make a living more vulnerable, and the people using this legitimately for casual hookups and fun are left in the lurch.
It's the sexual equivilant of Piracy Warnings, annoys the people using it with good but naughty intentions, and does absolutely nothing to the people actually committing crimes, in fact it makes it harder for them to find and stop. It's pretty twisted if you think about it. I can't see why the Australian site needs to fall into line with the tyrannical new US legislation. It's not legally applicable here, so why impose the same restrictions?
On 22 March , am American law with good intentions, but ridiculously ill-considered overreach, came into effect. It makes service providers potentially liable when folks use online personals sites for nefarious porpoises. So Craigslist et al decided to simply shut it down.
Any tool or service can be misused. Because Americans, as a rule, don't understand the notion of 'other countries', our baby gets chucked out with their bathwater. The sites have no one but themselves to blame. They turned a blind eye to people posting ads for literally children sex slaves.
If they had done better at self regulating it would never have got to this. They shit themselves over the new US legislation which holds the web site operators responsible for all content, rather than the poster of said content. Supposedly, this is to stop slavery and sex trafficking. In reality, it's fucked almost every web site in existence which offers adult services in any way, shape or form. There is new legislation in the USA that makes websites liable for sex trafficking that was taking place in their personals section.
Reddit banned the advertisement of sex work a month ago. Seems to be more details in this thread. Reddit are working towards IPO, they've been making a point of axing more controversial subs. One sub that contains footage of people dying almost got shutdown as well.
So the Americans want to tell everyone what they can and cant do in the privacy of their own space, so everyone has to bear the consequences. When will the busybodies actually deal with an issue if there is one rather than take the -just shut everything down -its so much easier approach??? Apart from the obvious apps can anyone suggest where we all look now??? The guys on CL must be posting somewhere?? Its the most like CL buts its new and they are still building but getting regular posts up around melbs.
