Why Craigslist is better

    Craigslist works. I don't get file not found or database errors with Craiglists.

    I'm sick of going to newspaper websites and see their classified ad pages come up with errors, or the ad search function not finding anything despite the fact ads exist when yo manually click through to different categories. Does anyone at papers (big or small) actually click into different portions of the website to see if anything works?

    Newspage Web site classifieds don't lead to near the number of violent crimes Craigslist does, either. So many problems to solve.

    There's a selling point: Traditional classifieds -- Less likely to lead to violent crime.

    CL lost me when they dumped the escort listings.

    I hear BackPage.com needs a following.
