craigslist is about:

  • giving each other a break, getting the word out about everyday, real-world stuff.
  • restoring the human voice to the Internet, in a humane, non-commercial environment.

  • providing an alternative to impersonal, big-media sites.
  • being inclusive, giving a voice to the disenfranchised, democratizing ...
  • being a collection of communities with similar spirit, not a single monolithic entity.
