US Congress just passed HR 1865, "FOSTA"
Full text of the bill:
Website owners can now be held accountable for criminal activity of users.
This means if someone uploads proof of criminal activity to ATS, they can sue ATS for it.
Craigslist just deleted their personals sections because of it. I never would have met the love of my life without that service, or several of my good friends.
This is absolute insanity- the internet has been on a pretty bad downward spiral since the mid 00's IMO, but this is a huge blow.
I am openly ashamed of my government over this, and I'm proud to be moving into the woods and leaving it as far behind as I can.
Best of luck to future generations...

You don't have to let it go, but.........you're talking about stopping a trade much like the drug trade. Saw the video. They can round up some of the criminal organizations, but for every one they shut down, two more will pop up to take their place. As well, many of the criminal organizations he's talking about are international drug cartels. Good luck shutting them down.
Just like the war on drugs, the solution would be to go after the demand side of the equation by targeting the pedo rings and busting their customers. Problem with that is.........they're protected by the very Agencies that would be charged with shutting them down.
