re: (last paragraph): " But I also have to wonder about whether Craig really thinks that the fraud squad he has deployed at the end of an email address and the warnings – posted all over his ads – about how to deal with scammers are really any solution at all. Judging from my recent experience, they’re worth a hill of beans, and that’s about all."
wonder is all these people do... (they see what's going on but somehow just can't let go of the fairy tale...)
P.S. the guy also doesn't seem to realize just how big craigslist's profits are and that craigslist/Craig continues to decline using these profits to adequately address the problems D.
