I have been using Craigslist for a while. Although now I don't use it much, it was great when I lived in the states. I got jobs that paid off the books on there and also because I was rather broke at the time whenever I needed some household item, I found second hand or even free sometimes on there. Obviously I know there's scams on there, but common, people, you can't blame Craigslist. Life is full of scammers. You just need to learn to spot them. It's a gamble in a way to contact people and know how much time and energy to invest in pursuing things but mostly its worked out for me. I think it really depends on what you're using it for and why.
I can't place ALL the blame on Craigslist for what it has become (spam and scam) but I think they need to implement some type of system o bring the site back to what it used to be. As it is now, it's hard to trust anyone or anything that's being posted. There's absolutely no problem with the interface or the usability - it's the people who use it for their own schemes that bring it down. As soon as Craigslist finds a way to fix, or at least lessen, that problem, they will be golden again!
For profit company that hides behind a .org domain
They make money by helping prostitution, ex "massage" ads in "services"
They allow prostitution ads and massage ads in the casual encounters section because they do not take down those prohibited postings even when notified
They discriminate by applying rules to some people but not others and there is no complaint or recourse but some stupid public board to complain
They have effectively a monopoly in the United States because no one else can compete against them they are too big and too well known
I have used Craigslist to buy and sell items, and I have been satisfied with all transactions. Everytime I have posted an item for sale, I am usually contacted within hours (I even sold tickets to a concert I couldn't go to the morning of the concert!) It is a great way to get in contact with people who you can buy/sell from, especially people within your geographic area so you can easily work out drop off/pickup.
