    I hate Craigslist by the teraton!!!!!!‏

    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.

    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.
