Hearings on what to do about online sex ads will help “determine how we can best protect the public moving forward.’’Backpage.com’s ads yesterday included one from Nikki, who offered “sessions guaranteed to blow your mind,’’ while The Boston Phoenix site featured “Young & Sweet Asian girls’’ in the Braintree area who offer massages and shampoos by appointment.
You can narrow your search by applying as many filters as you want. One thing Oodle has is the ability to post if you’re a seeker—meaning that you’re looking to buy, rent, or procure certain services.
The decision cost the Weekly Dig “hundreds of thousands of dollars’’ a year in revenue, he said.“I’m not going to get on a soapbox and tell Craigslist or the Phoenix not to do this,’’ Lawrence said.
For years, Craigslist has been the premier website for scoring a free sofa or finding an available apartment (and sometimes white van scams), but there are now plenty of other free services that do an equally fine job, with a more attractive interface and fewer spam postings.
Marketplace is also available via the Facebook app.
Simply set your filter options and search your local Marketplace up to 100 miles from your current location.
