  • Someone just hacked my craigslist account

    Someone JUST hacked my craigslist account. I don't have a clue as to how they did it, but they posted four ads in the Westchester, NY area using my craigslist e-mail. Beats my four aces as to how they did it. I've deleted the cell phone ads, changed my password AND changed the receiving e-mail on the account. Does anyone have ANY idea as to how they hacked my craigslist account? Or, has craigslist suffered a major identity theft from its database?

    SANFORD, Fla. -- Surveillance video from a Sanford Walmart helped lead detectives to a suspect in the theft of more than $1,000 of computer hardware. The video shows a woman hanging out in the electronics section, and then placing external hard drives in a bag under her shirt, police said. Police said the woman then went into the bathroom, dumped the security chip in the packaging and left the store. Investigators went to Craigslist and found the same hard drives for sale. Undercover officers then set up a meeting with the woman and offered to purchase the hardware. Police said...

    Well, well. I was scouring the Internet and came across something worthy of mention – none other than a Craigslist posting from Mr. Creeper himself, Julian Assange. Wikileaks dude! Seems like the type of chick he’s looking for is a woman who’s not afraid to get night-sticked on the street of Athens and who’s an avowed vegan. Now who would’ve guessed that, eh? Snort. See below! H/T goes to Brett Winterble of Covert Radio.

    AN ANGEL IN THE POST OFFICE Date: 2007-11-23, 10:55PM MST This is one of the kindest things I've ever experienced. I have no way to know who sent it, but there is a kind soul working in the dead letter office of the US postal service. Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month. The day after she died, my 4 year old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her...

    This is the politics forum at Craigslist, similar to DU with every vile Leftist known to man spewing garbage and hate towards Capitalism, Palin, Bush and anything Conservative. Many are paid Soros trolls and Sunstein government plants pushing the Obama agenda. It's comedy, I like to mix it up there sometimes, they are truly deranged. Give it a whirl, you need to register first, it makes me feel good to see that about 25% of us are on there, but the paid Marxists scream and insult you, I fight back.

    NPR will be one of the dominant forces in media in ten years because their membership-based funding model is finely tuned to the habits of millennial news consumers. That's the prophecy of Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist and a new media philosopher.  "Only very recently have I been thinking about the successful news organizations, he said, responding to a question from James Fallows at the Washington Ideas Forum. "I have a feeling that membership models and philanthrophy models will be stronger than advertising-supported models, people will be willing to pay for news they can trust." And trust, he said, "is...

    Craigslist has made tens of millions of dollars off sex ads, which have facilitated child sex trafficking, and part of that money is in Democratic campaign coffers. President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.), Sen. Barbara Boxer (D.-Calif.) and Sen. Al Franken (D.-Minn.) are among the politicians who have accepted the $83,800 in donations that Craigslist founder Craig Newmark donated to Democrats.

    In these tough economic times, many people are looking for a career change. Having been canned from jobs they’d previously found tedious and unfulfilling, they hunger for new challenges in different fields. If you’re one of those people, maybe you should consider a career in international espionage and counterterrorism! But how can I find a job in a field like that, you ask. I don’t have any military or CIA experience! How can I, an average Joe, even find out about jobs in the competitive, one might even say cutthroat, field of covert operations? Well, average Joe, these are the...

    Karen B., a Los Angeles writer in her 40s, found a sperm donor on Craigslist after she and her lesbian partner decided to have a baby. "I tried every male friend, gay, straight, married and single, but it was really difficult to find somebody," said Karen. "I was running out of options and my biological clock was ticking." After connecting on the Internet, she and the donor, Daniel C., signed a layman's agreement that the child would live with Karen and she would make all parenting decisions. He would have some visitation rights. "I always wanted the baby to know...

    Ruth Marcus of The Washington Post accuses Sarah Palin of offending homosexuals when she remarked that the author of a Vanity Fair hatchet job about her was “impotent and limp and gutless.” Marcus wrote, “The Vanity Fair writer, Michael Joseph Gross, is gay, which makes matters worse—conjuring the stereotype of ‘limp-wristed.’ But whatever the sexual orientation of the offending reporter, Palin should not have been questioning his manhood.” Palin had every right to question his manhood, since he is not a man in the traditional sense and wrote a cowardly piece. But her remarks were probably directed at his “journalism,”...
  • Craigslist Removes 'Adult Services' Section

    09/05/2010 3:25:59 PM PDT · by Extremely Extreme Extremist · 36 replies
    CHICAGO (CBS) ― Craigslist appears to have surrendered in a legal fight over erotic ads posted on its website, shutting down its adult services section Saturday and replacing it with a black bar that simply says "censored." The move comes just over a week after a group of state attorneys general said there weren't enough protections against blocking potentially illegal ads promoting prostitution. It's not clear if the closure is permanent, and it appears to only affect ads in the United States. The listings came under new scrutiny after the jailhouse suicide last month of a former medical student who...

    Starting with an old cell phone a friend gave him, 17-year-old Steven Ortiz of Glendora, CA, used Craigslist to trade up 14 times over two years and eventually end up with a Porsche Boxster. Here's how he did it. Although Oritz's story isn't the first time we've seen Craigslist-swapping writ large, it's the first one we've seen that doesn't include any outside help. You may remember Kyle MacDonald, who famously created a website to document his attempt to trade one red paperclip for a house. It worked. But MacDonald also had a built-in fanbase and publicity from his website. Ortiz,...

Thomas Bingham, the police spokesman, said a man brought the left leg in after it apparently washed ashore, also posting the missing limb on "There are no markings on it except for a Willie Nelson sticker," Bingham said. "It's kind of hard to forget." The sergeant said the prosthetic leg has a distinctive coloration and markings, so whoever lost it should be able to identify it if they come to the department at 101 S. Penman Road. The owner can also call the police department property room at (904) 247-6196 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays.
