Beware of Assholes on Craigslist

There are some people in this world who get joy from life just by making other people miserable and the perfect place for someone like this to get their thrills is Craigslist.

Go read the posts over at DontEvenReply.com and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Basically, what the guy who runs this site does, is find posts on Craigslist, acts like someone who’s genuinely interested and then completely pisses the ad poster off after that.

I have to admit that the conversations that occur on this site are hilarious, but I sure would be pissed too if I became his target.

Geniuses That Probably Had No Friends

I bet you didn’t know that Thomas Edison was a complete asshole did you? You won’t believe the messed up things he did in his time.

Did you know that Nikola Tesla hated anyone who was overwieght or that Beethoven threw things at people during his concerts?

Yeah, these guys sure do sound like assholes to me.

Rant of the Week: I Hate People and Their Dirty Tricks

Craigslist Flag Picture

I work in the very competitive industry of internet marketing so I’ve seen my fair share of dirty tricks. Some people don’t care about the way they do business as long as they’re #1. This isn’t the way I work though. I work hard to get my clients lots of business and I do it legitimately.

This is why this new software I just heard about pisses me off. What it does is trick Craigslist into thinking that other peoples posts are spam and will delete them. It will click on those “flag as spam” links several times on the competitors posting and will make it look like it has come from unique IP addresses.

I think that if you’re business has to resort to these kinds of tricks, then your business probably sucks and you need to work on that first. Then you’ll start bringing in customers without having to buy controversial software. People work hard for their money, and you should too. If you don’t work hard, don’t expect to stay in business too much longer either.
