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.
The Associated Press reports:
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.
