RIP craigslist personals… they just shut it down over a sex trafficking bill Congress just passed…

Earlier today, I went over to the craigslist personals section and seen that craigslist has shut it all down. Yep, they shut down everything in craigslist personals. Why? It was due to an “Online sex trafficking” bill that just got passed through Congress.

While many are outraged at this, I think it’s a good idea really so good riddance. Was the craigslist personals a good thing for people? NO! Not really. Craigslist personals are a hit or miss. Sometimes dating or one night stands or FWB type relationships can be good or bad.

I’ve never used craigslist personals to date a woman or have a one night stand or an FWB (No lie) but I have talked with a few women through craigslist personals in the past before. Nothing really good came out of them.

In my opinion, craigslist personals isn’t safe. It really isn’t. The site is full of prostitutes, drug addicts and people with STD’s. You can’t trust people in that site. Some of them may say they’re DDF (Drug and disease free) but you can’t always believe them.

On top of all this, people can be really shallow in that site. If you don’t have what they want, be ready to face a lot of rejection. That site can be ridiculous for a lot of reasons.

It’s good that it’s gone. Good riddance. Will it ever comeback? Craigslist says it’s done for good but ya never know.

I’m sure all the sex addicts will find other internet sites so they can keep doing what they do, though. They’r already talking about it in the “Rant and Raves”. It’s crazy. I just liked to browse the craigslist personals just for laughs, but glad it’s done, though. It’s a danger to our society.


Cool Video: Amber Lyon continues feud with craigslist staff about “adults service” section…

CNN’s, Amber Lyon (who is kind of a cute looking chick by the way) continues to bust on craigslist founder, Craig Newmark. She made a documentary video where she confronts Craig about the “adult services” section and she tries to ask him questions about it. I loved it when she asked him, “What are you doing to protect these girls?”, and he just stood there, staring at her, saying nothing. After that, she kept asking him questions that he wouldn’t answer, he walked away a few times. See the video here at the top of the article. Why won’t Craig talk? Because he knows he’s in trouble, and he knows what he is doing is wrong. Keep up the good work, Amber!


The craigslist “adults service” section is not gone, and it never will be…

There is a bit of controversy with craigslist that just hit the web today. As you can see, the adults service section was “censored”, it has “censored” right on it, with a black marker over it. People would immediately assume that “adult services” is gone and shut down. Really? Do you really fall for this kind of stuff? I don’t.

It is not gone. It never will be. Why?
Because the craigslist CEO, not to mention by name, has always defended the site. He would think he has every right to use the “adult service” section for craigslist, no matter the situation. Look at the craigslist blog for proof. The only reason this guy put the “censored” marker on it, was to help piss off the Connecticut Attorney General, the guy who demanded the craigslist CEO to take down the site. The “censored” marker is a sign that the craigslist CEO is claiming that he’s under, free of speech. If you think this CEO of craigslist guy will shut down the “adult services” section, think again. I think it’ll be back soon enough. Why is he obsessed with this “adult services”? I don’t know, maybe it helps make him money or maybe he is a sex addict himself?

Craigslist should not be used for sex at all. It’s not only dangering children and promoting prostitution, but adults shouldn’t be using it to get a fling. It could be dangerous for everybody. You would never know if people have STD’s or other dangerous diseases that could pass through, and you’ll never know that your sex partner could be some kind of psycho.

Craigslist should be used for an ad site to sell things. That’s what it should be used for. If people are so desperate to get laid, there are plenty of other adult personals online where you can go to that is not craigslist. If you’re desperate to get laid, go to a strip club or go to a bar to get hooked up with people. Many people that go to craigslist personals are not so attractive or hot to begin with because internet dating or casual sex is for people with no social lives, anyway. If the person in craigslist appears to be hot, then it is probably some fake anonymous spam promoting another personals site.

The “adults services” will be back before you know it. If the craigslist CEO were to shut it down for good, then he would have deleted off the site completely, but if he just put up “censored”, he’s not fooling anybody. So don’t get all excited yet. I think it’s a great thing that people in the US are taking a stand on this. Keep up the good work!


Report: Chris Cornell and wife threatening to sue craigslist over Brittany Murphy video…

Craigslist, the popular anonymous advertising site, is in more legal trouble. Chris Cornell and his wife Vicky, are furious over a Brittany Murphy video that has surfaced for sale at craigslist. On the video, had private wedding footage of the Chris and Vicky wedding. In the wedding video had Brittany Murphy partying on it since she was in the wedding as maid of honour. As some of you may or may not know, Chris Cornell and Brittany Murphy were very close friends. The video was immediately pulled off the site, imagining that Chris’s team of lawyers sent them “cease and desist” letters. The Cornell team claims the video was a victim of stolen copyright and argue it’s a federal crime. The Cornell’s wants craigslist to track down the person responsible for stealing the video.

More on it here:


We better hope that wedding video is copyrighted, if the judge finds that it isn’t, then Chris won’t be able to do anything about it legally.


In response to article about Weird Al’s homage to the Doors…

Read this:


I agree that the music of the song itself is very dead on with the Doors. Al Yankovic’s vocals is surprisingly almost close to Jim Morrison, but I think there is a reason that Al’s lyrics aren’t the same as Jim’s styles.

I think there is a legal reason for it. Al respects other people’s work legally and takes it very seriously. Maybe Al didn’t parody one of the Doors songs because Ray Manzarek wouldn’t allow it, for a legal reason. Maybe Al didn’t copy Jim’s writing style because Mr. Manzarek wouldn’t allow it. So I believe it was Ray himself that suggested Al to write something new and different for a Doors homage. I bet it was Ray himself that instructed Al how to perform this song in the studio.

Why would Al want to copy Jim Morrison’s writing style anyways? I wouldn’t like that. Al respected the late Jim Morrison and put Al’s own style in lyric writing for the song.

Al Yankovic made it clear before, his next album is going to be very topical, songs that will be about real events. He’s doing exactly that. His first single before this one which was T.I.’s parody is about the economic times we are having.

Those who are curious about the lyrics of “Craigslist” the new Weird Al tune, here it is here:


In my opinion, I think the lyrics are pretty funny. If you read it carefully, understand what Al is trying to say in it, you would find it hilarious.

Even the craigslist founder/owner found it funny as well!

Again though, I think there is definitely a legal reason behind why Al didn’t write the lyrics on how Jim Morrison would have wrote it. Ray was probably very strict about it. Ray has always been protective of Jim Morrison and the Doors music from day 1 ever since they started.


Cool Video: OMG!!!!!! Weird Al homage to the Doors to make fun of “craigslist”, with Ray Manzarek on keyboards!!!

“Weird Al” Yankovic has done it again. This time, he did a style parody of the Doors. This is an original song written by Al Yankovic, it’s not a parody of the Doors, but a style parody. Al Yankovic collaborates with the Doors keyboardist, Ray Manzarek in this song. This is “Weird Al’s” latest official video. It looks like Al is finally coming out with a new album soon.

This is just brilliant work. It’s nice to see Al Yankovic finally release an original song for a single, which he doesn’t do very much in his career. Most of his hit singles are all parodies of other work. This song is an original one written by Al himself.

Which I’m sure he got tons of advice and help from Ray Manzarek himself to make this song sound exactly like the Doors.

Enjoy this. Amazing job, Al. This is your best new work in a long time! Al is a musical genius, period. 🙂


Craigslist prostitution is on the rise in the “Erotics” section…

So let me get this straight. Craigslist gets sued by an Illinois Cook County Sheriff to threaten the site to take down the “Erotics” section. South Carolina threatened to press charges against craigslist which they got sued by the craigslist CEO for.

And how about this?


More and more states are fighting to get the “Erotics” section shut down in craigslist.

Why doesn’t craigslist shut down the “Erotics” section? It’s because the site makes them money, that’s why. All they care about is getting some dough in their pockets while innocent young women are being bought by men wanting a fling.

Of course, craigslist and the sites owners continues to defend themselves, maintaining their innocence. Craigslist is not a very good website anyway. I don’t know why so many people bother trying to sell stuff or to get laid on that stupid site when you can do that everywhere else.

If you wanted to sell something, do it at a yard sale or sell it on E-bay. Not an anonymous site like craigslist where you can’t trust anything. I don’t even look at that site anymore. I hope the United States win the battle of taking down the “Erotics” section, or even better to keep people safe…take the craigslist site off the internet altogether. I give the law kudos and respect for fighting back at that aweful website. They are taking a stand at something to what they believe in ’cause they care about people.


Meeting people online can be dangerous on any website, not just craigslist…

I just read this article at WNYT:


Some people may think Craigslist is the only easy target for people with crimes in the real world, but the reality is, it’s very dangerous to meet people online anywhere.

You may think, how can the internet be responsible to destroy a person’s life, when it’s just a simple page on a computer screen? You may think, how can the internet single handedly destroy one person’s life?

While you think it may true that the internet is just a computer, a simple virtual thing that you think it’s not that big of a deal, and you think you’ll be safe on it by putting yourself out there in social networking sites.

While the computer is just the internet true, but the internet doesn’t run by itself, it is runned by human people. That is us. We’re humans. We control the mouse, we control the keyboards that we type on. We use our brains of what we write on the computer screen. When you write to someone else online you don’t even know, they’ll write back with a response. That’s how the internet works. It’s almost like the real world. If you think about it, the internet is the real world.

What you see in people online, is what you get in the real world. The internet is wide open, and if you put yourself out there in social networking sites for the world to see, it’s there forever. You may think that when you do social networking sites, your local area may only know who you are, but the internet is for the whole world to see, not just a small group of people.

Putting yourself online for the world to see can be dangerous. There are criminals and scumb bags with no lives that use the internet like us. People in organized crime and gangbangers are all over the world of the internet, using the internet to target people with crime. Hookers/prostitutes using the internet to sell their bodies to strangers as well.

When you’re online, you must use it safe and carefully, use it smart. Take the same advice you use when you visit cities and go on vacations, “Never talk to strangers”. The same goes for the internet. Never trust a stranger online. No matter how cool and friendly they may seem to them, you never know what kind of person they can be in reality.

You may find the person, your online buddy, that you call a friend, when in reality that person could be a fuckin’ druggy or a pimp, or worse could be a gangbanger or a mob hitman. Or could be drugged up serial killer or serial woman rapist looking for his next victim.

The internet can be a dangerous world. When you’re online, only interact with people that you know and can trust. The same goes for the musicians that interact online, bad things can happen to them too. The internet maybe good to interact with fans online but they need to look at reality that isn’t always a good thing ’cause you can’t trust anyone on this internet thing. I certainly don’t.


BREAKING NEWS: Craigslist killer, Michael Anderson, sentenced to prison for life for murdering woman…

I have been following the trial of Michael Anderson story, the craigslist killer who lured a young woman to his home posing under the name of Amy looking for a babysitter in the “help wanted” sections of craigslist. I didn’t want to post anything in my blog about this case until the verdict. Well the verdict is read, and this 20 year old guy, Michael Anderson has been found guilty and sentenced to life. He posed under a fake woman named Amy, hoping he would get sex from this young woman name Katherine Olson, who’s only 24 years old. He shot her in the back and hid her body in the trunk of her car.

More on it here:


So an Illinois Sheriff sues craigslist a Federal lawsuit for promoting prostitution and now a young woman gets murdered?

Just more reasons that craigslist deserves to get shut down and be taken off the internet permanently.

Craigslist is not a safe site, peeps. Just a word of advice for you women in the Capital District or all over this world, don’t use craigslist to hook up a date. Most men in that site are looking for a good fuck, end of story.

It is definitely not a safe website to meet people. The reason craigslist is an easy target for criminals is because it’s free and anonymous. Criminals think they can get away with crimes by visiting that website.

Another 2cents of advice for the women, never use the internet to look for a babysitter. If you want a babysitter for your child, only hire someone you know really well and can trust.

A life sentence is what this asshole needs.

I think it’s time for the public to go on an all out war against craigslist and protest to get that site taken off online. The Illinois Sheriff already started that.


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.

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.
