I am definitely a big fan of Craigslist—it’s helped me get rid of a bunch of old crap and even led me to the cute couch that’s now sitting in my teeny apartment. But it’s another bad PR day for the site. A man in North Carolina posted an ad on Craigslist to find someone to rape his wife. This is already wrong in so many ways, but the worst part is, someone responded. He came to the man’s house armed with a knife and assaulted the wife, while the husband watched and their two children slept in another room. The attacker was arrested Sunday—and the husband was led out in handcuffs on Wednesday. Hopefully his wife will be okay. And will instantly file for divorce.
All I have to say is, people, please stop using Craigslist for evil.
