  23. 23. From Bill @ CL There are really two issues here: 1) Craigslist is a *local* tool and we discourage any tool that blurs that distinction 2) The manner in which this tool gets information from our site is all wrong. The reason that we don't mind housingmaps.com traffic is that they pull one RSS feed a day to update their data. #1 is enough to make us unhappy about this so it doesnt matter if #2 changes or not. from Bill in comments Sunday, March 1, 2009
