Yup, because nobody in the history of ever has posted a fake Craigslist ad just for shiats and giggles. And certainly nobody has ever even conceived of the idea of posting a fake Craigslist ad just for shiats and giggles and then posting it to a bunch of online "media" sites to get more attention for it. It's even more inconceivable, absolutely unfathomable in fact, that someone who works or writes for an online media site would themselves write such an ad just to be able to cover it on their own site. Inconceivable, I say.

Pocket Ninja: LockeOak: It's also simply incomprehensible that someone with strong writing skills working for an online media site would post a Craigslist ad for the purposes of writing a revenue-generating article on their own site and then post denigrating remarks about said article on news aggregation sites, further increasing exposure and revenue.

Or that someone with strong writing skills working for an online media site would post a Craigslist ad for the purposes of writing a revenue-generating article on their own site, then post denigrating remarks about said article on news aggregating sites to further increase its exposure and revenue, and THEN log in with an alt account to post follow-up comments on THAT comment.

LockeOak: I could definitely see PN doing this for shiats and giggles... Hell, I would do it just to see if I could get it mentioned on Fark. Not by my own submission, but to see if I could make something so outrageous yet half believeable that someone else would post it.

You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.
