Craigslist vehicle ads gone?

Just logged on to two different Craigslists and almost every classified section click results in this:


"US Congress just passed HR 1865, "FOSTA", seeking to subject websites to criminal and civil liability when third parties (users) misuse online personals unlawfully.

Any tool or service can be misused. We can't take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day.

To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness!"

What gives? Is Craigslist over?

All good here, just checked Ft. Collins and Boulder Craigslist Auto Classifieds and everything worked. Maybe a slower roll out? Kinda crazy!

Very nice guys. This is coming up when I search ANY classified ads, vehicles, RVs, boats, etc. Can't say I've ever done the 'personals' thing. It's the same on a few other CL cities I've tried and there's a bunch of stuff on the help forums about it. Hack? Real deal? Anyone know?

I get the same page but only when I choose the option “personals”. That sucks, I found them entertaining too.

No issue here in MO for cars and trucks, but the personals brings up that message.

... it doesn't appear that Craigslist is over, what it does indicate is that sex traffickers use on-line platforms to sell victims; and here in San Diego, CA sex trafficking is active. This is a link to the legislation:
