Years ago Craigslist was an ok place to visit to buy and sell things. Of course then there were the Craigslist murders which started their downward spiral.
These days it has been overrun by scammers and scumbags. Example, you have a hard time as a Animal Rescue posting your rescued animals without Craigslist killing the post right away, but puppy mills and breeders openly post animals for stud and $800 animals for sale supposedly against their tos. They rely on users to Flag these posts, but there are so many you cannot make any difference when you do and they simply repost over and over with Craigslist turning a blind eye. Craigslist, and its users who support them, have become nothing more than a place to enable animal abuse to openly prosper. Looking through the car ads its amazing how many you can tell are scams trying to take desperate and unsuspecting peoples money. I can count the number of times I have had to help friends avoid a Craigslist scam.
Craigslist has become a place for criminals and scumbags to abuse animals and prey on the desperate for profit.
Nextdoor has a good idea, but terribly implemented. Site is full of nasty political battles, misinformation and bullying is rampant. The "Leads" do nothing to make sure people follow Nextdoor policy and even participate in the bullying. Example. Selling animals is not allowed, yet the same people get away with breeding and selling animals over and over no matter how many times they are reported to Leads. They need to overhaul the system of reporting and shutting down nasty threads and abusive users. Certain threads that always lead to fighting and abuse just need to not be allowed. Could be good, but not right now and its getting worse.
