listpic vs craiglist

so i used listpic.com  (thanks to a suggestion from bobacita) to pretty much buy most of my furniture for my condo, it showed 100 pics per page from craigslist posting, so you didn't have to click on each individual link.

however, a few days ago, i discovered that craigslist has started to block listpic. so i sent an email to craig and jim at craigslist.org, and craig responded.

Here's the short version regarding the listpic thing. Sorry for
the delay, just flew home.

Best is this update:



The listpic technology was taking a lot of bandwidth from our servers
making it harder for the vast bulk of people who visit our site.

The listpic people are aware of this and other issues, which
they do not diclose.

Perhaps they should also explain their attempt to monetize our site,
and the other similar issue.


Thanks!
