Professor Mark J. Perry's Blog for Economics and Finance

If you look carefully, the information is coming from Oodle.com . I'm not sure how Wal-Mart plans to leverage this. I'd give it a very low chance that this drives more sales on the site or adds advertising revenue.-Amit

One has to wonder what is up with Wal-Mart calling this barely alpha site a beta site. Looks like some fresh faced still wet behind the ears MBA wanted to stick to a schedule regardless of reality.As the site exists right now it is next to worthless. Unless they have a room full of monkeys writing code Wal-Mart's classified debacle won't be a decent site for months.
I have grown so tired of Craigslist sometimes. I have found other places like, GoGinzo.com, Kijiji.com, and BackPage.com where I can post without so much difficulty. Just my two cents
Too many lefties for them to beat out Craig's List. It doesn't matter what Wal-Mart does, if they have an alternative (which Craigs certainly is) they'll use it.
