Craigslist Rant: Spammers Offering Jobs

I’ve ranted about Craigslist before and undervaluing photography. However, this latest posting is ubsurd. It was flagged for removal already, but it’s insane that things like these would pop up in the Gig’s section. The entire email trail after the jump.

If we already find it hard to weed out the scum and cheapos and now we have to deal with spammers, how will craigslist become an easier place for us to do business?

I’m currently working with a couple of other artists and photographers on asking the admins for a way to further filter gigs. Details will be released sooner or later.
