There's a Japanese proverb: The mail that sticks up gets pounded down. 

I've been expecting this. Ever since the capitulation of CL, BP had a target on its back. Since the gang of DAs didn't get the job done (like CL), Sheriff Dart (IL) targeted them through the credit card companies. He got his hand slapped, but the damage was done & the credit cards stayed away. Still BP soldiered on. Then they (CA) went after the principles with criminal charges. Then Congress hit them with a massive document request, a fishing expedition some would say. 

Some of the p4p moved into the Dating section after CL took down their escort section, but it didn't really fly. I suspect too many flags. Besides it's just too confusing, mixing p4p with those seeking a relationship. I expect similar results now on BP. 

Who's next?  My guess is ECCIE, or possibly TNA. But ECCIE, at least in TX, has some strict vetting rules for providers. That may keep the wolves at bay for a while. 

I'm not sure that the expansion of TOB into a national board is a good thing; makes us a more attractive target. 

Of all the advertising sites, TNA was the one that screened me the most. They've covered their bases in that regard. Unless a site is checking IDs and verifying ages then vetting isn't really all that strict. If these targeted attacks continue my guess it will be on those who make money. My guess honestly would be TER or P411 because without BP they are the largest sites left.

Douche Bag Dart interfered with BP for sure but it's also good to remember that even before that mess CC companies made new rules for adult sites. There are lots of things you can't say or do if you want to take CC payments on your adult site. So that could potentially be another something that screws us.

Being a 55 yr old Blackman,I am glad backpage got shutdown since I couldn't get the ladies I wanted to see to give me a chance and the ones that did turned out to look nothing like there pics...two thumbs up for the courts who shutdown backpage👍

Congradulations. This is perhaps the stupidest fucking thing i have ever read here and the most troll like to the numerous ladies that are totally legit and were (perhaps too) reliant on the site in their attempts to support themselves.

This reminds me of when the Rocky Mountain News sent out form letters telling us that we couldn't advertise strippers anymore.

I guess this is what happens when religion nut jobs are repeatedly elected to office.  I wonder which sites will be next.

That's weird, last time I checked, Kamala Harris is a democrat.

Agreed. But I think sites like TOB may not be too far behind......

BP is now dead, thanks to the people who think we should be in church every day. Remember, every time a law is passed, we lose another freedom.

Barking up the wrong tree with church reference.  The c**t pushing this - Kamala - is a far left winger with no concern about religion at all. She is being groomed to be first woman president and claims multi minority status. The new improved Hillary. And one dangerous bitch when it comes to freedom and constitutional rights. But church - not even close.

Well we're either headed into the dark ages and street walking, or TOB girls just became A LOT more valuable. This site just became the only game in town. Yeah there's eccie, but that's not a Colorado board. 

Or one or more of the following or something new will fill void. In no particular order and not endorsing any:

This board

Myproviderguide

Datecheck

Tna

Bigcity

Cityvibe

TER 

Eccie

Twitter

Miscellaneous social apps

Most promising. - indivudual ladies' websites tagged to be searchable. 

This too shall pass but i feel very bad for especially the newer ladies struggling to make ends meet and who relied on BP. Another instance of government kicking the little people in the teeth to further political ambition.

Its more about pressure to rid the US of underage trafficking. Easiest way to get the headlines and declare success is to ban BP. Its not real change but it looks good for headlines. Not really about religious nuts although I'm sure they're happy about it. You should think more critically about the issue.

There is a popular site in soca called humaniplex.com that had a Colorado section also. Ive had a profile and a network there for years, got signed up on it when I lived in Los Angeles for a few years. I like the style of the site, but it does cost money to use for both customers and providers.

I joined years ago and had some amazing girls on there. Porn stars and everything in between.  Not so big for CO. Maybe it will change.

Holy crap :-( I just can't even believe it!!!! Well now this is going to make things even uglier. :-(

If this TOB website isn't affected by the government move and keeps going, maybe the action by BP has actually weeded out the "ugly" part. I wouldn't visit a BP provider unless they had positive TOB reviews anyway.

Scammer yes. Virus - no, just do not say yes to the scam screen that CLAIMS your phone infected. Just close/delete and you are fine. :)

Didn't this happen to Craigslist several years back? BP advertisers will find a way around this temporary inconvenience. Sounds as if some have already decided to go to different place within BP to advertise.

Just checked the women seeking men page on BP for the first time and saw a lot of familiar faces.  Sounds like things have already moved over.

I don't understand the hysteria from members here. TOB is a solid site and if we all found our way here, others will as well. 

Deep breath...ladies post your ads and the men will call. Except for me because I only text:D:D:D

C'mon. This isn't a end to the oldest profession in the world.  Give it a few and there will be a workable solution to everyone's safety. Until then use your big head,pull up your big girl-boy panties, and be careful what you say and to whom. It is stock show time.  And the pinkertons are en mass.

Realized something was wrong when it had been a few hours since my last message from someone new. Luckily I knew about TOB already;

Not as many responses as BP but the lead quality has been so much better so far. People giving me pics and telling me about themselves for screening without it feeling like I'm pulling teeth omg. You all are a good bunch c:

Maybe you should take the GOP's cock out of your mouth with your bullshit:

http://www.hsgac.senate.gov/subcommittees/investigations/hearings/backpagecoms-knowing-facilitation-of-online-sex-trafficking

Go watch the investigations and who has been heading the subcommittee for years. Sure a leftwing dem was dealing with the lawsuit, but the senate committee is the one that caused BP's actions here. The religious nuts are the ones trying to take freedom and the ones continuously pushing the crackdowns on this site (go look at how many states were red joining that lawsuit against bp - far more than just cali was involved). Every time those self righteous nuts declare freedom, they push another law and cry religious discrimination. Go look at the places with the harshest anti prostitution laws but flourishing trade in it - often happen to be the red states (thank you kindly Texas visiting girls btw!). 

So go back and think critically yourself. Just wait for some harsh laws to come down with the religious nuts controlling congress. And please do disagree with me so we can slap you with a dildo in a few years when you're proved wrong yet again. 

And please find me some reference of a religious republican NOT taking a chance to attack this business? Closest I've ever heard was Ron White talkin about his catholic grandma thoughts on the matter.

Not going to pretend the dems aren't crap, but until you quit the bullshit shilling and making excuses pretending it's others, the problem will just get worse.

 Some of the women who posted on BP, were not “ROB,” there were plenty of fake ads,  girls working for pimps (I didn’t experience that situation). 

Whatever the reasoning the Feds used they did it.  Speculation about the younger providers, they will migrate to other websites. Question is do they get it? As business women, I had sent a couple of providers who posted ads on a daily basis. Never hear from them.

So yeah ! I think those providers who have shown up on TOB website. Will find our community of TOB always watch out for each other.

These “new” members will find the we’re not as vulnerable as some guys were on BP  (as I was). This will all work itself out.

About pricing, it went up months ago. Not everyone can afford 300 or 400 ? There’s an audience that can afford to pay that. While some of us consider the 250 price point?

It goes back to previous viewpoints about paying for the experience. I could elaborate on that, however I will not share my thoughts. Thanks,

Wow, I'm curious to see where all the providers go now to advertise.  Maybe it's a good thing this happened though, will help me not be a customer.

I checked how many people joined TOB in the last 24 hours and it is the first 4 pages and most of them are all ladies.

We are going to see some new faces around here.

Re: who in DC to blame: both sides of the aisle. What with deadlock in DC, if anything gets done, both sides need to cooperate.

Re: lots of ladies signing up for accounts: mods are going to be busy with warning about no advertising on the discussion board.

Re: ladies moving to massage and women seeking men sections of BP: guessing the massage section and the more general services categories will be back into war mode. Back in the day, the massage section was full of "ads" by massage therapists telling everyone to flag the body rub ads as they don't belong on there, not legit, etc.

Posting in different sections of bp won't work. The sites revenue stream has been disrupted.
