Knowing that you're from Schenectady, N.Y. it's easily to see why you love craigslist so much 'cause Schenectady is a city full of weirdos and crazies, crime rate is high in that city too.

How would you feel if you had a daughter that was raped or beaten by a man she hooked up a date with in craigslist? How would you feel if you had a daughter who forces men to pay for sex in craigslist? Or worse how would you feel if a daughter of yours got murdered 'cause it was linked from craigslist?

You would want to take legal action aggainst craigslist then, wontcha? Or you are going to say it's okay that craigslist can do that and it's a cool place to sell things....just something to think about...

Craigslistisbad, There are many temptations in life. As an adult(a normal adult) One has to ward off temptation and do what is right. Whether it be lawfully right, morally right, or religiously right. I have used CL numerous times for sales and purchases. If used in the manner it is intended it is a great site. But in life there are immoral idiots who cannot ward off temptation and will use every angle to feed their evil ways. We are not only talking CL as there are many evils out there that will take over a persons soul ie; drugs, alcohol, murder, robbery, rape, etc the list goes on and on. So dont blame it on CL. As for sueing CL? That is ridiculous. If ppl are advertising for sex they full well know the dangers that go along with meeting someone you dont know alone, in a room, for whatever is their pleasure. If they are stupid enough to go thru with it....then so be it. It is their own fault and stupidity that sent them to the after life. CL did nothing wrong.

I agree that you have a right to express your opinion. Absolutely.
With the MILLIONS of postings on CL everyday, the small percentage of situations with murder etc are almost negligible ... it's people like you who don't even USE CL who get their undies in a bind and spend too much time reading the National Enquirer who make a big commotion.
Yes, there are other websites to buy or sell. Websites that CHARGE. Do you want to pay my fees on them? I just rented new office space found on CL. I got a good deal partially because the landlords' expenses were minimal.
Do you read the local newspapers? You can find personals in those too that are really fronts for crimes as well. "Employment" ads that are not really jobs. Wll you close them down too?
"Nobody needs craigslist anyways." you write. No one needs this forum either. Need has nothing to do with operating a business in a free society. If no one uses the site, it will die. Obviously, millions use CL and find it beneficial ... if YOU don't like it, fine.
Stick to your pathetic topix if that's what does it for you, but stop treading on my choices.
A kid down the street from me was struck by a car driven by a lawnsale gawker. Should we outlaw lawn sales and arrest the owners who promote the slaughter of young pedestrians and bicyclists. On weekend mornings the streets are FILLED with these violent motorists who seek only their own bargains at the expense of others' lives.
Doesn't that sound silly? Well, it also sounds much like your own arguments about CL. I refuse further comment.
peace
