Another fish.  This one was a bit cleverer, and build a response that has nothing to do with the ad.

This is an utterly fake post.  Please, let me be clear, I am not offering any sort of work here.

There is a PHP website, that needs tending to somewhere in this wide world.  CSS is used on websites, and often jQuery is implemented as well.  MySQL is a database that is free!

Photoshop is definitely a graphics program.  Illustrator is fun for drawing pictures.

Web designers often use these tools.

It's true that I don't have any responsibility for a website, I am not hiring anyone, but I would like to see who responds to this ad.

Just to be clear, I will post your responses on idiots of craigslist.  If you ask me to remove your response, I will, since it means you've read something here on craigslist and not just blindly responded to any post with key words of interest.

Woohoo!  Let the idiots show themselves!

You’re still an idiot.

—————————————-

Need photographer for a quick shoot. Just need to have a professional or student that knows what they are doing must have light set up and a very creative mind to make the shoot good. This should only take up to 30-mins to 1 hour depending on how quick you can set everything up. just reply to the poster with some photos you have taken recently so I can determine the best person for this gig.

Thanks,

Tyler
