The Assholes of Craigslist! You know the type- people who offer less than half of your price and act as if they're doing you a favor. Poeple who never show up to an arranged meeting. Poeple who insist on your home address. Poeple who ask to mail you an item to another state. They are the assholes of craigslist. The people who make buying or selling an absolute nightmare because they can't just leave honest people alone. Craigslist policy states that ratting these troublemakers out is against the rules. Well, fuck craigslist and their protections. It's time to call these dipshits out and expose them. I do my business via Cincinnati craigslist and the site is FILLED with these people. They tend to inhabit the video games section as a primary hangout but you can find these morons everywhere. If you are one of the listed assholes and wish your information removed, TOUGH SHIT. Plan on staying on this page. Legal threats do not frighten me. Asshole # 1 : Larry Young AKA Mike Young, Jr. email address: firstname.lastname@example.org The Offense: Larry Young has no money. His offense happens to be a case of harassing sellers, attempting to force them to sell at lower prices, then making public RE: posts to complain when they won't meet his ridiculous offers. He will often resort to the tactic of finding a low price at an online store, even when said store is out of stock and any and all current online sale prices are higher than your asking price. He also resorts to filthy lies and will resort to claiming that "numerous" thrift stores sell your item for less, yet refuses to offer any proof, such as the phone numbers or locations of such thrift stores. His father is a total bastard, a redneck braggart who will email anyone who yells at his prick son as if his threats mattered. Asshole # 2 : Frank Rodziewicz email address: email@example.com The Offense: Frank Rodziewicz is a toy reseller, operating out of area flea markets and likely online auctions. He gathers stock through craigslist sales, but is a lowballer. He will DEMAND you sell toys to him for a bargain, call you all sorts of awful names, and then act as if his offer is "more than you will get". Even when told to take a hike, he continues this behavior, believing that if he calls someone an idiot enough times, they will do as he says. He also insists on a price discount if he has to travel to pick up, but offers no travel reimbursement if you have to meet him. Unfortunately, this is not a case of some immature 20-something with no social skills. This man is in his 50s. I suspect he is senile. Asshole # 3: name unknown email address: firstname.lastname@example.org The Offense: This person is a scam buyer out for free toys. This is how they operate- The person is interested in the toys you have for sale, but at the last minute, claim they can not meet and will send someone to pick up on their behalf. The deal goes as arranged. A few hours later, they will email you back, claiming you sold them an item other than what was advertised. IF you agree to refund them, you will likely be given back garbage instead of the actual goods you sold them. I did not let this go that far. I kindly told them to take a fucking hike. Asshole # 4 : Ken Tarmack email address: email@example.com The Offense: Ken Tarmack is a redneck, racist BIGOT who believes it's his duty in life to play craigslist price police. Upon being emailed about this, he resorted to numerous racial slurs, including "nigger" and "mongrel". He continues this mindless behavior to this day and has even flooded 4chan with his racist garbage. Asshole # 5 : unknown email address: firstname.lastname@example.org The Offense: This person is an Amazon marketplace seller who buys "deals" on craigslist to resell online. However, this person resorts to lies and deception to purchase goods. She will claim she wants to buy the merchandise as a gift for someone, often a boyfriend, but the item will be listed on Amazon the same day. This is slimy and deceptive. If they can not tell the truth then they should not be buying from people. Asshole # 6 : Dan Wright email address: email@example.com The Offense: Dan Wright was trying to sell illegal CD-ROM discs burned with emulators and ROM files in the sumemr of 2009. After his ads were flagged, Dan resorted to emailing anyone selling legit gaming hardware to curse them out, then began making public RE: posts claiming he had legal permission to sell ROM files. His claims also spread into claiming he had emulator patents, game company permission, a lawyer backing him up, and a sheriff in the family willing to protect him from any legal troubles. He also made threats of lawsuits, physical violence and threats of computer hacking to anyone who challenged his bullshit. Perhaps his biggest lie was claiming that he'd been working on computers since the 1970s. This lie was debunked when it was discovered he had an account on a social networking site for teens. He has not been seen in some time. I personally forwarded one of his threatening emails to Nintendo and Dan has not shown his face since. No doubt he faced legal troubles.
