The bill makes a change to a key part of the Communications Decency Act that makes it easier for victims of sex trafficking and prosecutors to take legal action against companies that fail to keep exploitative content off their websites. Congress refuses to make gun companies or retailers liable for the shooting deaths of its users, but it has made websites liable for hosting sex trafficking content created by third parties its users. Advocates of free speech and a free Internet say that the bill, if signed into law—and President Trump is expected to sign it—will cause a chilling effect that hurts consenting sex workers who use the Web or—as is the case with Craigslist—just two strangers looking for a date. Craigslist preemptively reacted by taking down its personals on Friday. When you go to the site now, it sends you to a message that says:

Indiana Women seeking for Men, w4m Windy34 year white women seeking black men I love the country and anything outdoors. I'm the biggest animal lover you'll ever meet. I love spending time with my family and friends. If your more than or less than ten years of me I'm not interested I'm looking for someone I will have things in common with. I'm into interracial dating I'm only looking for white, latino, Asian, and Indian men. I'm looking for the nice guys only if that's not you keep going, I'm also looking for someone that is ready to meet for a date.
Hard to tell. Doesn't seem like it's changed much either way. I don't believe that the most powerful politicians think about this area at all, and local politicians are limited by the economic conditions of their constituents. It is unfair. A vicious circle.
