As of March, 23 2018, Craigslist shut down the personals section of their service.
This was effective immediatly for the Craigslist website serving the United States only.
In almost 15 years this classifieds website has grown to become the seventh largest English language website.
Every month Craigslist (not just the online personals section) gets more than 20 billion page views from over 50 million users in the United States alone.
If you posted on the m4w "casual encounters" section, a spam storm soon attacked whatever email you had just used to post there (all of which were 2 liner msg's, obviously written by foreigners, trying to get you to give them your direct email address or cell #).
If you posted on the m4w real "dating" section you either heard nothing back from anyone, or you occasionally got a msg from someone asking if you were "generous$" or, again, you got something that was easily identifiable as a spam response.
The best thing for it was the (albeit an unintentional 'side effect') passage of the "FOSTA" bill which finally led to it being put out of its misery.Better off with a free-to-post legit dating website anyday.The CL personals in more recent years ranged from futile to potentially dangerous (again, maybe unless you were gay/bi, and/or unless you were looking to 'pay to play' -- but even then, how safe was it really to go and meet a total stranger at their home or at a motel or elsewhere, for a random sexual encounter?? I'd imagine also that not all -- probably not half -- of the many m4m random hookups that took place daily from off of there were really "safe sex", and thus STD spread was possibly realistically a problem from there too, to a certain extent.It had gone practically totally to hell over the past few years.There was a time, perhaps 7- almost 10 yrs ago or so, when it was feasible to actually meet someone to date off of CL.
