    @Simon06001 @Pedro__Schmidt @Rebartic Weighing down is right. Shelagh may be off on Craigslist looking for some free accommodation!

  • shitprole pipefitters local 69 (@shitprole) reported

    Going through craigslist to find a room and seeing a lot of bullshit. Stuff like this house is a “scent free environment.” 100% these people would have no problem with BO or someone who is just constantly making hard boiled eggs.

  • OrdinaryJoe414 🏁Tell em Somthin Joe🏁 (@OrdinaryJoe414) reported

    Ok 1st, you look at how bad your feet may or may not look! Then you get pedicures to fix it, if possible! Then you go to craigslist

  • NYSHEDGUY Douglas (@NYSHEDGUY) reported

    @BarbaraCorcoran I posted Craigslist ads in every category to start my sales.. Came down to love or hate Me..I made sales and branded #nyshedguy..

    @BPDbabe99 YES! Lol. I legit posted an ad on Craigslist 😂😅 and got multiple inquiries!! I actually posted it in 2 locations to get better chances. (Note:it costs $5 to post tho 😒). Altho just got an email saying my posts got taken down after like a week but that’s after I made $ haha ...

  • OtakuRhoads Andrew Rhoads (@OtakuRhoads) reported

    @ZEROthe1st Yep, I have the same issues with Craigslist stuff. Even worse when it's eBay sellers, I mean I low ball the first offer to see where the seller will counter. I'm not just spitballing when I do, I have a plan.

  • JonnySucio Guachacato (@JonnySucio) reported

    @hahafuckpearl See if they'll give u the old unit and fix it cheap and sell on craigslist. I do this a lot with TVs

  • GrowingMindsSC Dianna H (@GrowingMindsSC) reported

    @joshuavannostr2 Check Craigslist. Put an add in there if you don't find anything. When I've had trees cut down, I've had the wood cut into manageable lengths & placed an add for people who needed firewood to come pick it up & split it themselves.

Look at that picture.... it screams “**** culture”... your not solving problems... your adding too then.

  • drschweitzer Mrs. Kringle in disguise 🧙‍♀️♿️♏️🐶🍿🚠👩‍🌾🚞 (@drschweitzer) reported

    @drooliet I have a really brilliant PhD student who has used the Bejing version of Craigslist where tons of nonpermitted housing is advertising and we talked about this a lot. Those rentals turn over so fast and they are willing to jam people in so they never take down the ads. N

  • AnikBay AbFAB (@AnikBay) reported

    That is not a Craigslist problem, that is a male violence problem.

  • Travis_Acton27 Travis R Acton (@Travis_Acton27) reported

    @spaciestdonut Sorry, determine what budget is and then *figure out broadly what kind of car I want - small car, mid size, suv, whatever. That will help narrow down the search a little. Then look on craigslist.

  • AnikBay AbFAB (@AnikBay) reported

    @washingtonpost This is not a Craigslist problem. This is a male violence problem.

  • LookThatShitUp I AM ZEN I AM (@LookThatShitUp) reported

    They already came after craigslist and ********.... it’s about to go down. The internet isn’t somewhere the first amendment can find a comfortable home. Freedom of expression doesn’t REALLY exist in places like facebook, Twitter, & Instagram. And well.... here it comes

  • sammy_samala Samantha Templin (@sammy_samala) reported

    @TalibKweli what more bad could happen to me. Got scammed by a “landlord” on Craigslist. He took my “security deposit” and blocked me on gmail. I’m actually pre devastated cuz we desperately need to move. This apartment is making us sick. Which is why were having lung issues. 💔

  • LukeJSimmons Luke Simmons (@LukeJSimmons) reported

    @JDoberenz Honestly, choosing a denomination is like buying Craiglist car: they've all got issues of some kind, so you pretty much just choose the issues you feel most prepared to tolerate because you gotta get to work SOMEHOW.

  • 7renb ren (@7renb) reported

    I remember when my old friends put my number down on craigslist for free puppies and i would get not stop getting calls and texts for a whole MONTH, evil bruh

  • marsha_baughman Marsha Baughman (@marsha_baughman) reported

    @audreyy_kaye @Caamp December 27! They are sold out unfortunately but our buddy Dan found some tickets on Craigslist that weren’t terrible!

  • gaynmad Free Chelsea Manning 🏳️‍🌈 (@gaynmad) reported

    @deaddilf69 also the sesta/fosta laws started a domino effect with ******** & craigslist personals taken down, then it moved into social media

  • surambaya Sura Mbaya (@surambaya) reported

    @MurungiEric @ekmokaya It's the same issue that plagued OLX. The thought that they could just clone Craigslist and then monetize it... They did not factor anything into understanding how trust works in the African context and the utter lack of individual traceability in case of fraud....

  • NeutralJenda JendaNeutral (@NeutralJenda) reported

    So I found the job on a craigslist ad & its located in the Portage Park area near 6Corners.If they continue to not pay me Im going to reveal theyre name ....Like EVERY WHERE ✔💯✔ Might even get sum spies in on this & shut it all down cuz CHICAGO DOES NOT NEED THIS SHAM ON POC

  • thenewtomboy Thenewtomboy (@thenewtomboy) reported

    Women on craigslist posting pictures of their whole VAGINA Men on craigslist posting pictures of their ENTIRE BUTT HOLE AND PENIS... and somehow Those ads are ever taken down But when i post advertising my web design services...the ads are IMMIDIATELY removed

  • thomas_jerison thomas jerison (@thomas_jerison) reported

    @davidparker555 @michaeljknowles Tell that to craigslist who took down their personals section because they would have been in violation of new laws. If you have a business breaking the law then these businesses are closed. Same can be done on the Internet.

  • MichaelZentner2 Michael Zentner (@MichaelZentner2) reported

    @SJGrunewald It started when we learned how she stole people's money in Whitewater. Then hoew she abused people in Travelgate. Then lied about Craigslist Livingstone. Then Haiti, the foundation, the secret email server she deleted evidence from. Her attitude, her ****** husband etc etc etc

  • thomas_jerison thomas jerison (@thomas_jerison) reported

    @Lwestraad @michaeljknowles @TwitterSupport Instagram and twitter will do lots to regulate it if there is a law being broken. Craigslist personals got taken down very fast because of a new law they would be violating.

  • gennifer_kellis gen (@gennifer_kellis) reported

    People renting places on Craigslist are like, “there’s no room to lay down so you’re going to have to find somewhere to sleep, there’s no bathroom but you can pee outside and shower with a hose, and you can’t use the kitchen but you can light a fire”-$1600 a month $2500000deposit

  • KrsJams Kris N (@KrsJams) reported

    @barknoll @AnyoneComics I also frequently search thrift stores, flea markets, used book shops, and local Craigslist stuff. We’re lucky to have a lot of Comics retail in nyc but to too many even have back issues let alone $1 bins.

  • ShawnInArizona Shawn in Arizona 🌵 (@ShawnInArizona) reported

    My wife's auntie is living with us & her TV broke yesterday I checked Craigslist & a few Goodwills but couldn't find anything good with a remote under $80 Saw a yardsale on the way home & BOOM Lady wanted $60 for a big flat screen but I talked her down to $40 - remote included

  • karbkerbkurb 🎄kurb🎄 (@karbkerbkurb) reported

    @CriticalBard I analyze the problem and I am very interested in the job and I am very interested in the position you have posted on Craigslist and I am very interested in the position you have posted on Craigslist and I am very interested in the position you have posted on Craigslist

  • xaqaria Jason "Xaqaria" McSorley (@xaqaria) reported

    @TimmyTechTV The first laptops I got for my boys were off of the Dell outlet. More features, reasonable price. Only issue is it's like Craigslist - you have to be looking to find what you want, so YMMV. I did have the advantage of my employee discount to make it an even better deal.

  • mlfoley Lee Harvey Osmond ♿ (@mlfoley) reported

    @Reuivn @Shurikens_Miner @Bence_Palkovics @BadGuacamoleTV @getongab @TheQuartering That shutting down Craigslist stuff hurt victims.

  • fffffarahm Farah M. (@fffffarahm) reported

    I would hope there is a protocol @bumble has to curb this kind of thing happening to women who want to meet people. This is what happens when you shut down @craigslist personals btw. These people have to go *somewhere* & I guess that's Bumble.

    @fingerbIaster Ever since Craigslist personals got shut down I’ve seen some pretty creative work-around.

    @DemonsDigImps ... She's been here two seconds. This business practice is terrible. 0/5 stars on craigslist

  • BrooklynDrK Brooke Richardson (@BrooklynDrK) reported

    I want more friends... genuine ones, please! No fakes! Too bad Craigslist took down their strictly platonic section! Lmao met many quality friends through there ;-) ha

  • Hiny_Rugburn Nathaniel Parker (@Hiny_Rugburn) reported

    @evaandheriud @stillgray You could have solved a lot of these problems if you just sold the bike on craigslist for a hundred bucks and just told him you lost it.

  • futureusrefugee Future American Refugee (@futureusrefugee) reported

    @CryptonMaximus5 @stembrandt Craigslist shut down their personals to avoid violating FOSTA. It didn't require an army of cops reading every Craigslist personal

  • Skaardd ᛋᚳᚫᚫᚱᛞ (@Skaardd) reported

    So I am selling a 200$ airsoft gun in mint condition on craigslist for 50$ because I got it for free... this guy try's to haggle me down to 35$ and I don't budge.. ****** shows up in a 80,000$ car and a business suit to pick it up. Wtfh

  • bloodbuzz charles short king cheese (@bloodbuzz) reported

    Acquired a dresser my new car has a big fold down backseat but not large enough for the craigslist ikea purchase I made so I did drive 40 mins terrified on the highway w my trunk door open but we did it

  • colborkmundus astrid olin 🎹 (@colborkmundus) reported

    If you're a fellow broke-ass Millennial (or just broke) and you're in the market and checking out all the Craigslist listings that say FREE and the brand name seems obscure, it probably it has issues and is a "piano-shaped object". It probably should be given its last rites.

  • DownhillCarver DownhillCarver (@DownhillCarver) reported

    @skullcritter @MutoreoCookie You'd be better off buying an old smartphone+SIMcard on Craigslist. Set up a phone finder app, write down the Simcard info, then stick that phone in Memento's chest. If it goes missing, call the phone provider, get that Sim card activated, and track it using your finder app.

  • bronzebarbarian Charles DeGlopper (@bronzebarbarian) reported

    RPG Problems: Player sends a text with an address and 'Making a Craigslist purchase if I end up dead' Reply 'Be sure and see if he games before he finishes you off, I'll have an opening at the table Haven't heard back in awhile now I'm worried. What if he didn't read it and share

  • JesseS_BrieBug Jesse Sanders (@JesseS_BrieBug) reported

    @John_Papa I’ve sold several on Craigslist with no issues

  • jnsq Grumpy Fish 🌹🏴 (@jnsq) reported

    @chadloder @deray In this case, the I suspect the problem is with their business processes around dealing with contractors. They asked me to record a voice corpus on the clock when it would have been much cheaper to hire people off Craigslist, because the process was too cumbersome.

  • technoontop Brandon (@technoontop) reported

    @thePiratePimp Damn man! I only have 59 lol.. All from thifting, I seem to find more Ps2 games I'm at 92, not terrible considering I'm really only picking up when I find them at thift stores Craigslist ect for cheap.

  • RealSlothUSA 'MeraSloth (@RealSlothUSA) reported

    @s_m_i @freyjawired To be clear I’m not disagreeing with anything here. Just saying it sucks. I don’t think it’s a transportation issue though. More of a human issue where you just can’t trust a situation where you’re alone with a a stranger. Very similar to something like craigslist.

  • kaybarberfrost Kayleigh (@kaybarberfrost) reported

    One time I bought something from craigslist and Tyler took me to get it in Columbus and when we got there we followed this girl down an alley and into a crack house and they had kittens and i was literally crawling on the ground in a crackhouse playing with cats. My best life.

  • ellogoodchum Tani San (@ellogoodchum) reported

    finally shut down the guy from craigslist trying to scam me it was kinda fun but I've got things to do ya know

  • SacAppraiser Ryan Lundquist (@SacAppraiser) reported

    I sold something on Craigslist & the buyer told me he's thinking about moving from Folsom to Tennessee. This guy has a pension & equity, which puts him in a place of advantage to explore options as such. I don't mention this to be down on CA. Nope. This is simply a market trend.

    I wanna buy a shitty car off of craigslist and fix that bad boy up lol

    we live in a "my car broke down and this is all I could find on craigslist for $500" battle

  • TracyDrummond tracy (@TracyDrummond) reported

    @nicholas_biondi 5000 would be the high end for really good condition, so maybe 3000 to 4000. Price it just a little high so you can come down, seal the deal. Craigslist works well.

  • DJCrownBlack C.B. (@DJCrownBlack) reported

    Craigslist is bout as slow as the banking industry
