You won’t be able to do chargeback on the bitcoins but if you paid Cracker directly with card for funds before Viva withdrew then you are entitled to do a chargeback.
I'm glad I got all the Cynthia Payne books before the prices rocked to sky high.

I did use cracker directly before they removed the card payment system. I give it a try but seems months back.

WOW! and now craigslist "therapeutic section" in europe has been removed too!!

WTF is goin on??  ???

now people post those ads in other sections of  "Services"...
I tried CL in the past and to me it is not good (I am not UK based).
Might the removing be related to sesta/fosta and/or the new European laws on privacy?

The new EU laws on privacy have nothing to do with FOSTA, in fact they're the total opposite. Why would CL remove a  full section that offers services that 1) are perfectly legal in europe and 2) doesn't make the directory liable for it's content (thanks to EU law) I have no idea. Me thinks it has more to do with protecting CL as a brand. You have to remember that nowadays CL are getting all their money from the US paid sections: real state section in the big cities, plus car ads, plus the employments section. Whe're talking thousands of daily ads at 25 dollar per ad. That's almost 125000 US dollars a day in profit. the therapeutic section in Europe was free (so no income from there) and it had the potential of hurting their brand so they got rid of it. Makes sense to me.

The good ol days where you could sell a pram and a blowjob in the same directory are long gone. Times are changing, laws are changing and we just need to adapt. :)

Hi Ana, many thanks for your explanation. I also agree that CL wants to protect its brand...
Concerning privacy: in my opinion, CL has its own approach when it treats sensible data... but I do not want to derail from the thread so I stop here  :) xx

Yes, and they're probably making money from that too (but like you said I won;t get into it as to not derail from the topic) ???

...The reason I'm writing it on the Backpage thread is that we're seeing what has been happening after SESTA/ FOSTA.
It impacted badly safety and livelihood of those in the USA.

If you lost your income after closing down of Backpage, consider taking action and sending an email...

Exactly.  I still can't get over what has happened to BP. 

In the thread that you have linked, it says that proponents of the Nordic model are sending in as many submissions in response to the inquiry as possible.  The more of US fighting back, then, the better, I say.  (I have sent in a submission).
