This time, it's personals: Craigslist dumps lonely-hearts section, blames anti-trafficking laws

I just checked the East Anglia Craigslist and those sections are still there, just renamed and moved slightly.

Perhaps the removal is US-only or it's a phased worldwide rollout. Apparently Craigslist brought in mobile phone verification last year as a means of eradicating spam and scams, so perhaps this is just the logical next step.

But Craigslist did have a reputation for being a law unto itself and ignoring subpoenas and reasonable law enforcement queries, so perhaps this is karma.
