it still needs ALL the protection it needed back when it started!(when it made people think it would never turn for profit...and got their time and resources, including speedy legal help); afterall it still has a tinny staff, doesn't it? no matter that it's making huge profits as a result (while providing as little customer service and improvements it can get away with), that NEEDS protection!
P.S. some of the arguments appear clueless when it comes to the realities of today's craigslist as well as fundamental things about what craigslist does (most notably not differentiating between FORUMS, where protection should certainly be granted and ADS, where craigslist is no different than a newspaper classifieds, it's just using today's technology which is certainly capable of adequate screening, when the will is there...)
