Question: Just curious as to if anyone has ever answered (thought of answering) or posted (thought of posting) a Craigslist personal ad?

I'll go first: I have never answered or posted one. However I have replied to some job ads before on CL, with good results Ie not fake ad got paid.

NOTE!: this post is not to encourage people to answer, post personal ads or do anything on Craigslist of course.

Yes. In college.

Some friends were over and we all got drunk and we were bored. So we were looking up personal ads and making a drinking game out of it. Take half a shot if the ad you opened contains more than one picture. We took turns scrolling down and being retarded until we couldn't drink anymore. One friend decided to post a fake ad and he put the number of someone he absolutely hated on that ad.

Apparently, that person's phone exploded with messages.

Man, back then....we could make a drinking game out of literally anything.

4 times. 3 were successful (still hang out with one of the girls periodically), the 4th I think was a drug addict so I walked away from that one :P

As far is work is concerned, I work in non union film production so I've used craigslist extensively for casting actors and models. Not so much lately though because most local actors here use a couple facebook groups that makes the process a little easier.

To be honest I find CL personal ads to be interesting to read, and is my go to place to try to "get a glimpse" of a city but I still haven't the urge to reply or post one, just really surprise that some people do.

No. I've no interest in dating anybody on this planet, much less those likely to be psychopaths who get their rocks off to throwing cats into a woodchipper.

I'm barely 18 and i don't find it to be trustworthy. Not at this age. Too young for it. Too many creeps. I don't really trust Craigslist...

I never answered/posted one. But after reading about the pregnant lady answering to a CL post about baby clothes. She got beat up and her womb cut open..... I'm never using CL.
