My craigslist account, that is. In fact, I already did it. It’s been talked about around here over the years, peoples’ different experiences with their local craigslist. My local craigslist has always been a complete shit show. Mostly junk, overpriced, and people wanting to trade. You rarely list something and just get somebody that wants to buy it for cash. My experience has been mostly negative over the years. We have a guy around here a few months ago that listed a bunch of overpriced junk multiple times each, then continue to renew the listings to the point that he was the only one that had any ads displayed. He completely took up the whole thing with his crap. If you listed something, within an hour he would renew all his, and your listing would literally disappear so far down the page that it was basically like it was never there. Somebody finally did something about it, one day all his stuff was just finally gone, and it was like the angels singing, the nightmare was over. Well, I saw him start in again a few weeks ago, and he’s almost back to where he was. Currently, about 75% of the ads are his, and he’s going for 100%. He has rendered the page useless for anybody but himself. People have taken out ads speaking out against him, and those ads get pulled immediately, of course. I did it myself a couple days ago, and now they are blocking me when I legitimately try to list some thing. I decided to walk away, wasn’t really a fan anyway. I will check back in once in a while to see if somebody finally got rid of this asshole, though.
