    The New York Times this week published a lengthy sympathetic story about three men the paper suggested were guilty of the victimless crime of trying to have sex with underage girls. One of the men was Jace Hambrick, who the Times describes as a nerdy gamer who “wasn’t someone who could meet women at a bar.” So he gave Craigslist a try. There, he met girl who said she was 13, although the Times defends Hambrick by saying he thought she was older than she claimed. “Jus gamer gurl sittin’ home on sunny day,” the girl’s ad read. “we can...

    For 100 miles, 18-year-old Sanoma Blakeley and her horse, Goober, battled some of the toughest terrain in California’s Gold Rush country. They crossed rivers, traversed canyons, and pushed through elevation changes. It was 16 hours of heart-pumping adrenaline and incredible athleticism as this unstoppable team refused to slow down or give up. After riding all day and with the sky pitch black above them, they sprinted across the finish line to claim their first ever win at the Tevis Cup. Eight years ago, Blakely’s father found Goober listed for free on Craigslist. The purebred Arabian horse was two years old...

    A Hawaii man is accused of conducting an elaborate cyberstalking campaign against a Utah woman and her father by sending unwanted repairmen, food deliveries and other visitors to their home. The father estimates that between August 2018 and March more than 500 people came to their North Salt Lake home at the alleged stalker's behest, and that some of the visits stemmed from the suspect "posting the family's address on Craigslist stating that the homeowner wants drugs and prostitutes to come to the house," according to a federal motion to detain the suspect.(snip) There are few details available about the...

    When investigative journalist Julia Angwin worked for ProPublica, the nonprofit news organization became known as “big tech’s scariest watchdog.” By partnering with programmers and data scientists, Angwin pioneered the work of studying big tech’s algorithms — the secret codes that have an enormous effect on everyday American life. Her findings shed light on how companies like Facebook were creating tools that could be used to promote racial bias, fraudulent schemes and extremist content. Now, with a $20 million gift from Craigslist founder Craig Newmark, she and her partner at ProPublica, data journalist Jeff Larson, are starting The Markup, a news...
  • Craigslist drops personal ads due to sex trafficking bill

    Craigslist has yanked its personal ads section in the wake of an anti-online sex trafficking bill that passed in Congress this week. The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act, or FOSTA, makes websites criminally liable for content that its users post, including prostitution ads and sex-trafficking content. Craigslist — whose personals include bawdy categories such as casual encounters — said it pulled ads because it wasn’t worth running afoul of the new law. “Any tool or service can be misused,” the website said in a statement. “We can’t take such risk without jeopardizing all our other...

The International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) drafted a code of five principles for news websites to accept, and Facebook yesterday announced it will work with “third-party fact checking organizations” that are signatories to the code of principles. Facebook says that if the “fact checking organizations” determine that a certain story is fake, it will get flagged as disputed and, according to the Facebook announcement, “there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining...

    No barbecue is complete without a dad standing at the grill, flipping burger patties and telling dad jokes. That’s why a group of party planners in Spokane, Washington, put an ad on Craigslist seeking just that. “NEEDED: Generic Father for Backyard BBQ,” reads the ad’s title, which was posted to the volunteer page on the Craigslist site for Spokane. A group of men in their 20s who asked to be identified as “The Boys” will be hosting the barbecue, their representative, Dane Anderson, told HuffPost in an email. At least 50 “boys” will be at the event. As their ad...

    It's nearing bedtime for Asher Huzar, but on a Tuesday night at 7:30 he ducks the rules, wriggles out from the dinner table and disappears to the basement for playtime. By the time his father, Nick Huzar, checks in on him, 3-year-old Asher has inflated his indoor bounce house, which provides him and his sister, Ava, with 15 minutes of entertainment before they pinball onto the next activity. Raising kids can be taxing, but at least for Huzar and his wife it has been relatively inexpensive. He bought the bounce house secondhand for $100. Huzar then points to Ava's princess...
