The turds of craigslist thread Talk about the worst ad responses you've received
Posted Sun Nov 02, 2014 12:28 PM
Our ad was detailed, well thought out and purposefully lengthy in hopes to weed out those with short attention spans and the marginally literate. Our hope was in vain.
One of the responses was an overtly hostile email from some guy who addressed a woman by name (not my wife's) talking about how angry he was going to be if it turned out this woman was married and that he was going to "stop by her work today". I guess the guy thought the object of his affection had posted the ad. Not wanting some poor woman to get stalker-murdered by this clearly unhinged and possessive individual, I sent an email explaining that he was mistaken and that his crush (victim?) was not in any way involved with the posting of the ad. I figured that would be the end of it.
A few hours later, I get a response from this guy asking if we wanted to swap with him and his girl. Because nothing gets us in the mood like a hostile, jealous, stalkerish personality.
Another one. Last night we received an email from an individual who acknowledged that we weren't looking for a single male, but that we should "hear him out". He then proceeded to offer to pay my wife for sex My wife was actually kinda offended at that one.
Stuff like the above is just part of the game, but it can make for some interesting stories and there aren't many appropriate places to share them.

Selling cheap worn out cars is the only things CL is good for. I do find some success in doing that. After wading through the wave of scam e-mails I usually eventually find a buyer. I couldn't imagine looking for sex on there. Good way to find yourself being made into a lampshade. "It rubs the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again! LMAO!

For, those seeking a group thing it's different because there are so few venues through which to meet like minded people. Unless your into going to clubs or paying for one of the adult hook up sites, CL is the only option.

I have had a few good responses from the mass of fake responses even though they decided to run for the hills, but I've decided not to make any further posts for a while because of those asshole flaggers.
