You can keep up with this issue on Twitter by following the #Fuck SESTA tag.---SESTA passed Congress a week ago.
It still hasn't been signed into law, yet in the past week all of the following have already happened:* Reddit banned most subreddits dedicated to sales.
So how do you know if someone is trying to scam you?
In addition to preventing sex workers from having a platform to screen potential clients, this means that there is no more meeting people for dating or casual sex via Craigslist.The much-loved "Missed Connections" board was also briefly taken down, before being migrated elsewhere.* Google Drive banned the sharing of porn, shutting down one of the easiest outlets for performers to send direct-sales and to share edits of content with each other.Many performers lost their entire life's work as Google has banned performers from saving their own content once it gets flagged.* Consensual Sex Work advertising sites City Vibe and Nightshift have shut down completely.* Microsoft has banned all "inappropriate" or "offensive" content from its platforms.It's pretty easy to tell: They send the same message over and over, often with the same link.But there's a type of dating site scam that's far trickier to spot, and the people who operate it claim to be making thousands of dollars every month fooling vulnerable men.
