I really think that CL has ruined the used anything market, used to have to go down to the newspaper in person and pay for an ad, now every lazy slob with a smart phone can list stuff for free.
Why would Craigslist ruin the market? Seems to me that it would open it up, people that weren't willing to go spend $15 for the newspaper ad , will sit at a computer for a minute to list up some old cassette tapes for .75 cents, or a Skilsaw that doesn't work for $5.00, or an old Superbike that's been sitting in the garage for 12 years.
