Report: Craigslist sued by Sheriff in hopes of stopping online prostitution…

A Cook County Sheriff, from Chicago, Illinois, Sheriff Tom Dart has filed a federal lawsuit against craigslist today. Craigslist is a popular no holds barred anonymous classified advertisement site. While you can use the site to advertise a variety of things, the most traffic the site gets is the “personals” section where people host erotic services.

The Sheriff wants craigslist to eliminate the erotic services promotion, and I agree.

Why do people like that site so much? Beats me. I personally think everybody just uses that site hoping to get laid.

I tried using that site a little bit, but I think I’m going to stop. Craigslist is not a good site at all. Beats me as to why the site made “Best Local Website” in the Metroland in the earlier “Best of’s”. The site is actually full of pathetic anonymous losers.

I hope that Sheriff guy wins the suit and the site gets taken off the net. There’s no real people there anyway. It not only attracts prostitutes/hookers, it’s also a big target for scammers, and bots promoting other websites.

If you want to meet people, craigslist is not a good place to do it, I’ve just discovered. Have some confidence, get brave and meet people in the real world, that’s what I vow to do. Craigslist is actually a dangerous website, I wouldn’t post there anymore.

  1. Well said! But just so you know, some people use it to find apartments, furniture, sell old stereos, etc. I was looking for a decent kitchen table this morning. Not everyone is desperate for a hookup.

  3. I know what you mean about craigslist. It blows a bag of dicks. Loads of people misrepresent themselves on this thing. I once answered an ad on craiglist. The “girl” who placed the ad said she had a masters degree in something or other. Social work I believe. No photo. Wanted a guy with a “five year plan”. Like a powerful Donald Trump type or politician like Brian Stratton or something. Anyways, it took forever to get together with this chick. Very vague. No picture in the ad. I later discovered why. She’s maybe 5′ 5″ and at least 350 pounds! Myspace cropping ain’t helping you out there! I was in a vulnerable place (having had my girlfriend of 3 weeks kick me out, I miss her Kraft mac and cheese, and was looking to move on). I meet this girl at Dee Dee’s tavern in Lathams on Rt 155.

    I show up and it’s gerbil race night. They put gerbils in this maze and the first to the finish line wins. You get to bet on them. Anyway, I meet Jabba there (we’ll call her Jabba the Hut because she’s a shapeless blob of fat). She goes on to tell me she’s separated from her husband He’s an effeminate, opinionated, very conservative politically guy. We’ll call him the Gay Rush Limbaugh. She’s convinced he’s gay. They got married. Had sex on the honeymoon and not since. That was 3 years ago.

    She takes me back to her place. Her roommate is a red headed girl that talks ALOT. She’s always pissed about something, her friends, her coworkers, some guy she banging at the time. Mainly because she needs some sort of drama to occupy her mind. She gets mad and stomps through the house like a herd of elephants- rattling the furniture. Pictures and paintings and vases are all falling to the ground. She was telling me about this guy. He looks alot like Richard Grieco from 21 Jump Street fame. This guy is married. His wife is a Turkish girl who lives in NYC. They start having sex. He tells her it will only stay on that casual level. Nothing more is promised and both agree to that. After awhile, she gets crazy and asks “what’s up with him and his wife” and “his wife wouldn’t know a real woman if she met one” – which is code for his wife has an attractive figure and weighs less than half of the redheads 275 pound frame. She starts getting angry with him after he breaks it off with her and stomps around her house, rattling all the windows and appliances. Also, she’s fond of taking photos of herself wearing angels wings and cats whiskers. Very seductive. NOT! Once you wipe the tears out of your eyes from laughing so hard, you’ll ask yourself why did she decide to do this? Another “boyfriend” she had is bipolar and on disability, living off you and me Kev. We pay our taxes. Plenty of bipolar people work, but this guy doesn’t seem to want to.

    The bottom line is both these girls are delusional. They think they’re going to meet a soulmate. Brad Pitt is going to come to them (with a crane) and sweep them off their feet. Maybe Stu Pitt is going to do that but not Brad Pitt.
