Our favorite Craigslist conspiracy theorist, Peter Everhard, is at it again. This week, he's predicting a merger of Craigslist with Rent.com brought on by the meddling of Craigslist minority shareholder eBay:
While it is now clear that an idiot republican will be in the White House for another four years, I don't think that it will become legal to kill people in business who just want to get by any time soon. I could be wrong on this. So, it is not likely that ebay and an association of newspapers and apartment listing services will actually get together and have Craig Newmark killed. I could be wrong on this as well.Jesus, where's Inman News on this story?
But, something has to be done to get this Craig Newmark clown out of everyone's way; and soon. I submit to you that the best and most likely method of disposing of Craig Newmark is for ebay to give him rent.com to play with.
