It really sucks because I used to use the vaping reddit sub-forum to looks for deals on e-juice. Someone would post something like, "So and so has 20 percent off" but now all of that kind of talked is banned because of this new law. If a kid reads it on reddit, then goes to buy vape juice and he is under 18, reddit could get in trouble for hosting the info.

Talk about a broad sweeping law!

Sounds like a good thing but how many of our rights just got kicked in the face just a little bit more?

But in this case maybe safety over freedom is the right choice?

I think we just lost freedom, personally. It should have been more specific. I'm all for taking down sex trafficking and protecting children but this isn't quite the way to do it, at least not with such a broad brush that affects EVERYTHING else. This was Pandora's box, a war on ALL fronts.

I predict dating sites are going to be one of the first to fold
Think about it....

This makes anything internet liable for anything and everything. It's like rock music turning you into a satanist all over again, lol.


I find it hilarious but saddening all at the same time.


Edit:

Think of this as well... With this law, it's pretty much telling ALL websites that they have to start snooping/spying on their users, each and every one. No more privacy. I would expect it to even have the possibility of affecting sites like this as well.

This is not about sex trafficking. This is about sex workers, appeasing the far right (feminists are, moreover not for this, & for women to do what they want with their own bodies), a sad attempt to make Trump look like he cares about women, and in the end a terrible move for internet censorship.

The oldest profession will live on, but sadly it will get much more dangerous and desperate when it's back on the streets.

FOSTA-SESTA's real aim is to silence sex workers online

my friend is an escort. she knows a few escorts who already committed suicide because backpage has been shut down. they were in hotels, middle of nowhere, and they freaked out.
ughhh. those girls should have just called friends or something.

its a shame people are freaking out.

but one thing i know is, the world revolves around sex and partying (alcohol drugs lol.) there will be another way for girls to advertise, or it will be back to the blocks.

there used to be hookers in nyc on 38th and 12th. of course i knew, it was a helluva lot of fun to swing by there after a night of bars lol. THEN craigslist hit, and the girls all went online. and im betting it was safer.

they gotta legalize prostitution then at this point. in australia the girls get tested all the time, and of course, you need to be 18 to work.

and the girls would have bouncers in the brothels, so if any drunk fool acts up, hit the buzzer, wham, dude is thrown out.

The NRA told me that criminals don't obey the laws, so this is obviously meaningless.

To everyone who is worried about this bill being "internet censorship" (which it could be it does have that vague language in it) but to me the new Net neutrality law is an even bigger danger to a free internet right?

The far right cares about sex workers? I didn't know that was apart of their Top 5?

First, I would never consider sex with any adult that wasn't openly and completely consenting. Second I would always ask, are you up for this? If not say so.This new law has frightened everyone in the lifestyle, most scared to death. How is a guy to get laid these days? Are we back to hanging out at bars and writhing numbers on bathroom walls? I feel like I just stepped back in time about 10 years. What is up with this?

I know everyone isn't as open minded about sex as I am, but sh!t man. Most of the websites just dropped off the planet. I wish I had recorded about a hundred numbers before the internet went bonkers.
