Check out the following article, which is an interesting and stupid use of Craigslist: Jealous mistress arrested for advertising on social networking site for hitman to kill her lover's wife.
"A jealous mistress has been arrested after advertising on the internet for a hitman to kill her lover's wife. Mother-of-two Ann Marie Linscott posted the message on the popular Craigslist social networking and advertising site. The 49-year-old had requested someone to perform a "freelance" job.
How dumb do you have to be to use Craigslist this way? Also, this article mentions that Craigslist is a social networking tool. I don't agree with this description. Craigslist is a classified ads site that doesn't integrate any of the elements of social networking.
Regardless of the online system, you shouldn't take advantage of these tools to do something illegal and immoral. Check out my previous post about another wrong use of social networking software: Sad Story about Cyber-bullying on MySpace.
Do you have any stories to share about bad judgment and social networking tools?
