I don't complain about a free service, although we all know that many of the interesting people found on Craigslist have been known to be a couple colors short in a box of crayons.

Never before though, have I seen such an epic failure.

CHECK THIS OUT

Garbage (http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/zip/1262520347.html - broken link)

When that popped up on my CSS aggregation I figured that it must be some kind of joke. I'm on the fence on this one.

Yeah!

Anyway the CL users (including me) flagged that off pretty quick.

For those who missed it, the OP was asking who would be interested in coming and getting their diaper and food waste - because they figured someone who have use for it.

Craigslist is just like the Internet, it is a great thing for the most part but some wackos drag it down with their perverted desires. But those are a very small minority and for the most part I have found some really good deals on a couple of things off of Craiglist (mostly Jeep stuff ).

Geez, I guess I'm naive. I wasn't thinking about anyone's perverted desires; I was thinking that someone could maybe use that for composting!

Craigslist is not going from bad to worse. It's a free service and a great tool when used by normal, responsible, law-abiding adults. One person posts a "supposed to be funny but the majority thinks its disgusting" ad, and everyone freaks out?!?!?! GMAB.

Did it happen to say it was in Silver Oaks? Sounds just like the neighbor I posted about a few weeks ago that is building his very own Mt. Trashmore in his backyard.

Better hurry though because the county is coming out to 'inspect' next week...

I tried and tried to give this guy the benefit of the doubt because some weekends some of the trash would be taken away. (Who knows, its probably on the side of the road somewhere.) I kept thinking 'surely he's going to get this taken care of...he's just down on his luck and needs a little time.' Well, its been about 2 months (or more?) so I called the county today. I'm not sure why I feel bad about calling, HE is the one exposing us to flies, and potential rodents, and awful smell, not to mention potential disease seaping into the ground.
