Craigslist dating fails

Perhaps that's why I was so disturbed by John Nagle's wartime narrative of the raging battle between Craigslist and spammers.

Unfortunately, these same characteristics also make Craigslist a particularly juicy target for spammers and evildoers. I consider Craiglist a generally benevolent public service.

In the movies, usually the water breaks first and then a massive panic ensues in which the mother's friends and family freaks out while she wails like a banshee for hours on end.

Another relatively unknown fact related to birthing is that due dates aren't entirely accurate. The estimated due date (EDD) isn't an actual deadline; more like an informed hypothesis.

Other desktop software products are Ad Bomber and Ad Master.

For spammers preferring a service-oriented approach, there's Its Your Post. Spammers tried using number-portability services like Grand Central and Tossable Digits. Spammers tried using their own free ringtone sites to get many users to accept the Craigslist verification call, then type in the password from the voice message. Much of the back and forth battle can be followed in various forums. I've used Craigslist quite a few times in the past, mostly to sell things that are too unwieldy to ship, with generally positive results. ) Almost immediately I found a personals ad with the following "image": It's an encoded wartime transmission from someone battling Craigslist spammers. I saw some obvious spam in the personals section – all of which had been flagged for removal by the time I clicked on it – but certainly nothing to corroborate this 99.9% claim.The personals sections were the first to go, then the services categories, and more recently, the job postings. This is a topic I am acutely interested in as we build out.
