Something similiar happened like this where I live, a disgruntled husband mad at his wife for leaving him, put an ad that he was moving and giving everything away, because he was going to start traveling around the US in a camper and did not need his stuff anymore. Gave away all his wives' china, antiques, and valuables away... Stirred up alot of anger!!!!! I think he felt better...=o)

I agree. They are just a secondary victim in this. It was their services which were misused for someone's prank or revenge plot. They are no more the fault than a gun is in a murder. Like the gun, their site is only a neutral tool which use is up to the discretion of the users.

I have been restraining myself as much as possible, but the child in me is going in a totally inappropriate direction with this conversation.

Just wondering, how did the people get access to the stuff? Wasn't it locked inside the house, a garage or a shed?
The guy probably lives in the middle of nowhere, small town, and no one locks their stuff up.

ok that's crazy I hope they find the looney that posted it and put them in jail and I hope they get sued for damages. What an incredibly cruel thing to do to another person.

My ex inlaws live in a super small town, and used to never lock their doors, until their neighbors started siphening (sp) gas out of their cars a few years back.

I think you'd be suprised at how many people don't lock their houses & cars in a small town.

I still can't fathom that someone would be so dumb as to think it was okay to enter someones house or property and start taking stuff without someone, other than in internet ad, telling them it was okay. How stupid are people!

Actually , the person who POSTED it on craigslist should be prosecuted to full extent of the law - the ones who DID it should be charged under a "Being under the influence of STOOPID" violation. I bet it will be revealed that it's a known person , someone the guy pissed off.
AGREE!
Our local "Moronic Index" has risen dramatically, and parallels the invasion of Californians moving into Southern Oregon.

My ex father in law got really pissed at this guy selling a car, he drove 30 miles to look at this car, the guy had left early and didn't even drive it in, when he knew my ex father in law was coming...so the father in law places an ad in the Penny Saver, about this guys car, saying it has less miles than it really did, that he was asking a lot less than he really was and put this guys name and phone#...I thought that was pretty crappy, but not near as bad as this.
My ex's father is such a vindictive person, many more stories of what an azz he is.
