    Seriously guess, regardless of how much you make on craigslist and the five sexy sports cars you own, did blackhat destroy craigslist?

    Think about it, I'm constantly trying to find things on craigslist, like cars, electronics, and right now cars but all i keep getting is spam shit.

    What do you think with a non-bias mindset?

    Definately did. I know if I was on the other side of the fence I would be very upset - especially right now with the economy those people who are faking in the jobs section I'm sure CL blackhatters have crushed the hearts of a lot of people.

    Yep we certainly contributed to it, without doubt, they need to make some major changes before they lose their customer base. When a brand gets a bad reputation it's very difficult to recover from without a full rebrand

    Yes, we helped destroy it. There were so many cases of wrong on each of our part. In some cases they didn't want us to make money, in some cases we got too greedy. I feel sorry though because we usually complain when good people like CL go corporate (which is underway now). I think we were less moderate than we could have been, but now I feel we should just bring upon its quick and speedy death before everything is paid as it will be. The damage is already done.

    Hey, some of those ads I post in that section have actually helped people make money online.

    And yes...we have ruined CL...I know I did my fair share of damage...I guess I have "crushed the hearts of a lot of people" in the process... :rolleyes:

    Yes and no. If we wouldn't have, someone would have. Corporations wreck everything in the end and it's called progress.

    We're opportunists, Craigs was bound to get wreck anyway....by it's very nature it attracts all kinds of dubious shit. All classifieds sites do. I probably won't lose any sleep over it. Corporations ruined the Internet anyway. It's not about "free" anymore. They want you to pay for everything.

    I think a lot of smart people milked cl, and a lot of idiots ruined it.

    In a word, yes. In a sentence, yes we did. But it was worth it, no?
