  • WOW

    Craig’s list should be removed and put out of business. Nothing but criminal and serial killers place ads on there.

    Yeah we should ban craigslist that would solve everything. Oh yeah and take guns, and stop consenting adults from doing what they do… Or is it just other people’s freedoms you hate?

    I believe craigslist should be removed. There are too many crazy people out there and you can never tell which ad is safe and which isn’t. It’s just getting out of hand.
