No age verify websex
Backpage is the largest adult classified ads site in the USA, second only to Craigslist in popularity for all online classifieds.
Craiglist withdrew from adult classifieds in 2010, leaving the field to Backpage, which now derives 99 per cent of its income from "adult" wares.
Special report The CEO of the notorious online classified site Backpage, Carl Ferrer, has been arrested in Texas on allegations of sex trafficking, after a joint investigation by California and Texas.
Earlier this year the US Senate, investigating human trafficking, voted to hold Ferrer in contempt after he refused to co-operate.
The site, NCMEC claims, does not require email verification from an advertiser, failed to corroborate age claims and email addresses, and allowed the poster to claim they’re 18 even when they submit a photograph of an underage child.
Requests by parents to remove listings are ignored.
It was the first contempt resolution the Senate had issued in over 20 years, since Whitewater.
The “broad construction accorded to section 230 as a whole has resulted in a capacious conception of what it means to treat a website operator as the publisher or speaker of information provided by a third party,” Judge Selya noted.They testified that Backpage “implemented and perfected a business model that profits substantially from aiding and participating with pimps and traffickers in the sexual exploitation of children,” and deceived law enforcement. On appeal, they were supported by briefs from many groups including FAIR Girls, Human Rights Project for Girls, My Life, the National Crime Victim Law Institute and the NCMEC.
