Why Craigslist is Fun
I only wish we had a Craigslist for Central Oregon (they exist for Eugene and Portland). The great thing about Craigslist (which has newspapers shaking) is its user-centered focus, and free listings. It's very quickly bringing in traffic that might usually go to a local newspaper.
The problem with such popularity is the whack-jobs it can bring out. But the best part is when you know how to have fun with the loonies that show up on there.
Like this guy, who, using Craiglist LA, is trying to recreate the A-Team. Some got the joke, some were deadly serious about helping.
And then there's the lady that replies to some of the sick perversion personals ads on there and posts the conversations on her blog.
There are some genuinely sick and twisted people out there, that's for sure. I'm just glad we have the Internet so we can all share in their weirdness and feel better in knowing that, compared to these people, we're all completely normal.
