McCaster is a tool for the newspapers who want their classified revenues back.
I want ALL liberal rag newspapers out of business and the liberal journalists to lose everything.
Whether true or not, this has been the opening the newspapers have been looking for to take down their biggest classified ad nemesis.
Interestingly enough when you bookmark the site you get a little peace sign in the bookmark. That doesn't bother me because at least the site lives up to the "free love" aspect of hippyness vs. the complete hypocrites that swell the ranks of the Dem Party that take every shot they can at open market capitalism and then, behind the scene, are completely embedded in said market (and don't touch theirs!)
Craig's List is at least operating under the open market premise of giving the public what they want - in this case hosting free classified ads - and funds their site with limited paid job and real estate ads in several of the biggest urban markets. That's the kind of hippy I can deal with.
