Woo hoo! St. Louis has been deemed worthy of having its own chapter of craigslist, an online community that was started by Craig Newmark in San Francisco. The easy-to-use site allows people to post classified ads for free.

I think Craig's List is more than selling old pool tables and waterbeds. From what I have read, it has been hinted that people find each other there for, shall I say, intimate encounters. I am not opposed to like-minded adults finding each other for those encounters, and maybe it is a plus for St. Louis that non-traditional types can find each other here.

Folks, thanks! and sorry it took so long.

We grow slow, since we want to maintain really good customer service and keep the site fast.

Much more than just selling pool tables and waterbeds...and more than the No-Strings-Attached personals. It's a community bulletin board where groups/organizations/businesses can post events. Where people can discuss local politics, happenings, restaurants. It's an online version of the old town commons. It's actually what we make of it. If no one shows up, it will, unfortunately, be nothing. We need to spread the word.

Thanks Craig.
