PostSubject: Stupid Craig's List   Tue Feb 27, 2018 4:16 pm

I used Craig's List for the first time a few days ago.

the day after the ad was posted, I received several responses to the ad (it's free stuff). I replied to the emails, which runs through Craig's List's mail system to resolve the obscured addresses. No responses to my email to the respondents. Turns out that there is a problem with Craig's List's mail handler; lots of people on the net complaining about their replies not going through.

I cannot tolerate bad software. Just can't.

Shit!

Free stuff always brings a buttload of leeches out of the woodwork. People will scramble for ANYTHING if it's free!

I always wait a few days before answering anyone. Eventually somebody pops up who speaks English, can form a sentence, and seems sincere. They get first crack. Yeah I know it's politically incorrect, but I've had bad experiences with non-English-speaking immigrants who get belligerent if you don't haul away their free concrete for them.

Free stuff is not the problem. The problem is craigslist's email handling.

I will have occasion to post a standup bass (double bass) to Craigslist for a friend of mine in a few days. I'll see if something is newly broken.

It's always worked great for me in the past.
