Cheers to the Bold

borat-high-fiveGeebo has a lot to be thankful for. In the past year we have remained dedicated to our mission of providing an accessible, community focused classified site that prioritizes customer safety and security. Consistent with this pursuit, we preemptively removed our personal ads section more than two months ago. As a result of our thorough and comprehensive review process we had never had an issue with human trafficking, prostitution, or violence…and we never wanted too. Removing the personal ads section was the only way we could guarantee our users the type of security they have come to expect and the kind of safety we believe they deserve. Call us old fashioned but customer satisfaction, continued patronage, and life, is something we are thankful for.

What else are we thankful for? We are glad you asked, and even more thrilled to answer., a widely popular international classified site, has joined Geebo on the short-list of sites that have removed their personals section. While denies that their decision to terminate their personal ads is a result of sex trafficking or solicitation, their rationale for confiscating this category is not particularly relevant. What is important is that and its worldwide audience is safer. For that, we are thankful.

Geebo is also thankful for the optimism that’s decision brings. Far too often classified sites proceed down the path of least resistance in the hopes of rising to a widely trafficked destination. Traffic is imperative to a classified site’s success…but the human trafficking that permeates sites similar to and is intolerable. Every site that reforms their practices or begins with precautions in place renews Geebo’s faith in the power of social responsibility. Slowly, but surely, perhaps the “right” decision will become the only decision for classified sites.

This holiday season Geebo would be honored for you to join us in raising your class and toasting the decisions of those, like, that are bold enough to do what is right. Where reason fails to exist, the decision to act is what matters. Cheers!
