why are craigslist's "modest fees" in fact hefty?

... because they charge per post (that adds up dramatically), instead of offering a subscription like plenty of other sites do nowadays -- this allows them to claim not to be greedy, while in fact making quite a bit of money and continuing to add to the list of cities that must pay for job listings (as of now...)


P.S. people keep bringing this up when a new slue of cities are "considered" to be added to the pay list (craigslist has never concluded not to charge in any of the cities it "considered" for charging) D.
