Craig Newmark Will Murder You In Your Sleep (Says His Competitor)

A web listings service of which I've never heard has released some "stunning data" about crime on Craiglist, putting them somewhere in bed with John Boehner or maybe Rick Santorum. How much crime happens on Craigslist? On average, points out Fast Company, "around 0.00005% of posts are associated with crimes on Craigslist." That puts Craigslist use at somewhere on the safer side of flying in an airplane, which is far safer than sitting in your apartment, basically. And by the way, "crime" also includes prostitution and a whole lot of "other." So they're not only fearmongerers, they also hate proud American (sex) workers.

That 0.00005% is however, quite profitable as we found out in the highest rated Lifetime movie ever: The Craigslist Killer.

I believe you mean "the//craigslist.killer"

Contrary to popular belief, .killer is not a usable domain name. However, .ki is the domain name of the island of Kiribati, island nation of the Pacific ocean!

Craig Newmark just sent me a personal email (me! me!) offering me (me! me!) a free iPad in exchange for all of my personal information, including my social security number, so they can process my winning!

Naturally, I'm replying in the affirmative.

I crossed wires and thought Craig Ventner was going to murder me in my sleep, which, damn, yes, I totally knew it.

Murder most foul?

My uncle advertised for a guitarist for his band on Craigslist. I saw some of the responses. "Mayhem" is perhaps too kind a word.
