I am being censored heavily by the management at Craigslist.org. For the time being, I am unable to get ANY entry addressing the issue of immoral and illogical wealth concentration posted. This isn't the first time I've been censored by Craigslist. The last time, about a year ago, I was censored on the issue of gun control. I got around the automated censoring system by creating images filled with text. However, they became aware of my tactics and added image searching to their censoring system. Since then, I have been virtually unable to get a word in regarding gun control.

Craig Newmark may have been a decent man at one time. The same may have been true for Jim Buckmaster. Not anymore. The concept of extreme personal wealth is very, very, VERY intoxicating. It will blacken a heart faster than you can say greedy pig.

It does not matter how legitimate my entries are. It does not matter how noble my efforts are. What matters is that Craig Newmark and Jim Buckmaster are both filthy rich pigs. They are OBVIOUSLY sick of me addressing the issue of wealth concentration. Now, I am unable to address the issue on their site.

I am allowed to submit entries regarding apples and happy days but not the COW. My entries regarding the issue are being deleted before they post. To be crystal clear, they DO NOT POST.

The following entry has been ruled inappropriate by Craig Newmark and Jim Buckmaster of Craigslist.

"I don't know how to help the woman shown in the photo. I wish I did. But I do know one thing for sure. We have some rotten pathetic ignorant nerve as Americans, citizens of the richest nation on Earth by far, to complain about aid to foreign countries when we allow a single percentile of our own rich pigs to reap over 24% of our private income and hoard over 40% of our wealth as a nation. This injustice by the way, is the single greatest underlying cause of the hardship that some Americans do suffer from. Hardship that pales in comparison to what hundreds of millions of people around the world endure.

So the next time you complain about aid to a foreign country, shut up, buy one less product from a filthy rich pig, and give that money instead, to a legitimate cause.



Please people, don't assume that I'm jumping to conclusions. I have been a regular on Craigslist for several years now. I am aware of the policies, posting limits, flagging by users, ect. I have systematically ruled out every possibility one at a time. There is no longer any doubt. I am being censored because of my ability to make compelling arguments against the very concept of extreme personal wealth.

Update: I got a new trick past the automated system in one of the cities that I regularly post in. Evidently, it hasn't occurred to Craig Newmark or Jim Buckmaster to search images for rotated text. It will occur to them once they realize that it occurred to me. Check out the new entry before it gets flagged. I am HATED BY MANY and it won't be long before my entry is removed.


By the way, I've tried variations without profanity. That's not the issue. Profanity is often posted on Craigslist. It's the subject matter and the critical style in which I address it. That is why I'm being censored.

By the way, if that photo doesn't break your heart, then you are not human. I can hardly stand the sight of it. I saved the photo because it's compelling.

It's not but it is very popular and it has multiple forums in every single US state and a number of countries all over the world. There really isn't anything else like it on the web. My web pages have received over 1000 hits just within the last few weeks directly from CL forums. I recommend that everyone with an opinion use CL. Just don't use any of their pay services. Their annual revenue is estimated to be over $100,000,000. Newmark and Buckmaster are rich enough already.

The photo is of a woman effected by the Gaza conflict. My guess is that she just lost her home or a loved one.
