Sleazy classified site was shut down Friday after the FBI raided the home of its co-founder, according to new reports.
Agents raided ex-owner Michael Lacey’s home, according to a local CBS affiliate — while users are sharing screenshots of a message saying it has been “seized” by the feds.
“ and affiliated websites have been seized as part of an enforcement action by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division,” says the message shared by numerous sex workers across the US and Canada.
“Backpage has just been seized by the federal government and taken down. This is terrifying,” tweeted porn star Taste the Moon alongside the screengrab.
Craigslist shuts down its personals section

The service announced on Friday it will no longer operate the portion of its website that allows individuals to seek encounters with strangers.
The move comes two days after the Senate approved of bipartisan legislation called the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act. 3/21/2018=24,42,62,17...79th day 286 left

U.S. 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 some day. To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness!”

The legislation, now awaiting President Donald Trump's signature, would create an exception to Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, which would pave the way for victims of sex trafficking to sue websites that facilitate their abuse.
The House version already passed with overwhelming support and received an endorsement from the White House.
Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act is a legal protection that gives a broad layer of immunity to online companies from being held liable for user-generated content.
Companies are expected to act in good faith to protect users from "obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable" content. Critics argue it can, and has, be used as a shield that protects companies from being held liable.
