I now hate Craigslist by the teraton!!!!!! Craigslist has encourged the already extremely stupid to request free work from artists!!! Craigslist, in their INFINITE STUPIDITY gives people a "pay/no pay" option for its Gigs section!!! That is the height and depth of stupidity and evil!!!!! Free work IS NOT A GIG!!! IT'S VOLUNTEER WORK!!!!!!!

The problem is too many clients have had trouble with professionals because they hired undercutters. I've had more than one offer me work and when I bring up money they say "oh I can't afford to pay you" or "do this one for free and I'll hire you later" and I charge a very modest fee. Craigslist is a house anyways.

If there wasn't an option, people would still do it anyway.

Craigslist and Odesk. It does get annoying when you actually have to live off what you make.

I don't think I've ever heard anything good about Craigslist.

Haha, take a look at the two "MAKE ME A SIGN" posts.
I was looking for local art jobs around me and this gave me a laugh. Wish I could thumbs up peeps on craigslist.

While I understand your anger, I think this is fantastic.
I's a waste of time clicking links that turn out to be unpaid when looking for something paid and vice versa.
Now there is a filter. Great. Professionals can use it to find paid projects.
