I guess if it discovered mulitple people share a street address or, god forbid, an IP address it just might explode!
The RWTF is that there are apparently actually people in the world who are under the impression that ordinary computers can explode from intensive use or logic errors.
Uh, those of us who read English understand that the 'it' referenced refers to craigslist, the company, not some computer. I've no idea from where the computer reference comes. As to exploding, that would be sarcasm.
Many of them work in entertainment - probably where someone thought they wouldn't cause further harm, but where they likely have a much bigger impact, as they indoctrinate impressionable minds.
Yes, craigslist apparently has a thinko on their hands. It's probably even at the database level, and thus difficult to fix.
DIfficult to fix? Really? Maybe it (yeah, the company again) needs to hire a programmer not related to the owner?
There are enough WTFs on craigslist to fill a book. I don't worry much as it's a free service and a perfect example of you get what you pay for. The inability to use perfectly valid email addresses is yet another WTF (the rDNS entry doesn't resolve as craigslist would like, so it rejects my emails). Standards? Who needs standards?
