Fuck Craigslist

Recommended Posts

For all the complaining that people do about eBay, compared to Craigslist eBay is inhabited by saints.

 

I just got done selling a 72-inch HDTV. It was a month of pure unmitigated hell.

 

Me being the meticulous sort, posted specs, condition, 6 pictures, and clearly defined terms:

 

 

1. Cash only, no exceptions. No PayPal. No checks. No money orders. No nonsense.

2. No shipping. Local pickup only.

3. No trades.

4. You must provide your own truck and 2 people to move it. I cannot help with lifting or transport. The TV weighs roughly 90 pounds.

5. No layaways, no time payments.

 

After a month, I am firmly convinced that the demographic breakdown of Craigslist "buyers" consists of approximately the following:

 

12% - Fucktards

23% - Lowball tire-kickers

63% - Scammers

2% - Actual interested buyers

 

Sweet mother of Jesus.

 

"Will you take $150?" (Sure, I'll sell a $450 item for $150)

"Can I pay you $75 a week?" (Do I fucking LOOK like Rent-a-Center?)

"What's your PayPal address?" (so you can file a nondelivery claim)

"Will you trade for an iPad?" (that fell off a truck or has been run through a wood chipper)

"Can you deliver to my town 80 miles away?"

"I'll pay your asking price. I need your address to send certified check..." (so it can bounce and I'm stuck with nothing after the fact... I must have gotten about 15 of these.)

 

If I never sell anything on Craigslist again, it will be too soon.

 

In comparison, eBay is a fucking sellers' paradise.

I agree 100%!!

 

Craigslist is a cesspool.

 

2% actual interested buyers might be too high. Or they are interested and respond, and when you try to get back in contact with them, they ignore all methods of communication. If you weren't interested to begin with, why fucking reply??

 

I hate eBay but Craigslist is the absolute worst!!

Oh yeah, I sold my travel trailer on Craigslist a couple of years ago and swore "never again." The guy who eventually bought it was a pretty straight up dude, but till he came along I put up with exactly what Dan described above for several months - a series of morons, B.S. artists, cheapskates and endless e-mails in hilariously bad "Engrish."

 

It was a good thing the "real" buyer came when he did, cuz I was about ready to say "to hell with this," give up and just set the damn trailer on fire...haha

I am in Craigslist hell again.

 

Been trying to get rid of some collectibles and I hate eBay so I thought WTF...... put them on Craigslist for the hell of it.

 

It might be worse now than before.

 

It's the same bullshit. They answer the ad. They agree to meet and do the deal. And then BAM...... they disappear off the face of the Earth. They won't answer calls/emails/texts..... nothing. It's infuriating!! :taz:

 

Trying to sell an expensive cellphone and gettinf tons of "replies" until it's buying time. And then they vanish.

 

One woman I cussed out called me this morning and apologized and told me she got off work at 1:30pm and was going to hit the bank and then call me to buy the phone. Of course, never heard from her again so I cussed her out again on all 3 methods of our communication.

 

FUCKING BUNCH OF IDIOTS!!!!! :thppt::cussing::doh:

    • you can choose to use your own lyrics or just describe the premise and it generates them for you - the more detail you put in the closer it will be to what you want.You have 3000 characters of space.  You then describe how the song sounds.  It then creates 2 different songs, but you can carry on creating as many options as you want. You only get 10 songs a day though on the free options and you can't use commercially on the free version - you know like upload to Spotify etc. 
    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.
