My grown niece has a 9 year old daughter. She is in a custody battle and I think she may be nuts. She convinced her 9 year old to post a "craigslist" ad in the missed connections section. The post says the 9 year old saw a young boy on a skateboard. She proceeds to describe herself and her clothing. She asks to connect with the boy she saw there. I think my niece has lost her mind. Am I being an old pearl clutcher or is this borderline child endangerment.
Did you tell your sibling (her parent) about this? That's where you need to take this, not here.
The parent is my niece. She lives on the other side of the country. Her parents also were made aware. I am hoping they will get involved. I will jump in if necessary. I keep hoping she was hacked and this is a hoax but I really don't think that is the case.
More stupid than dangerous.
I mean, since when do skateboarding little boys read Craigslist "missed connection" ads?
She's likely sexually abusing your niece.
What's wrong with it? Maybe the kid saw her too and by a twist of fate checks the same section for a personal? Kind of cute really! Is it so wrong to believe in star crossed love?
Hey Nosy Uncle! You have been BUSTED.
It only took me 5 minutes to find her Craigslist ad (not even knowing what city to start looking in) and I found it. I emailed the address and sent them a link to this post so they know what YOU are up to.
You DESERVE it nosy uncle!
I hopr r5 is kidding.
I'm not kidding, R7. But I really wish R6 hadn't done that. This uncle was just concerned - now this family is going to be all kinds of upset with each other over a little puppy love thing. Poor girl!
LOL @ R6. You GO girl!
OP, you forgot to mention what you're humpy nephew was doing while all this was going on.
Star-crossed love doesn't mean what you think it means, R5.
Craigslist is not a safe place for a nine year old, a nineteen year old, or even a ninety year old. Haven't people been murdered and robbed off of craigslist? Your niece is definitely crazy. And how old is this boy she saw skateboarding?

R8, I think they'll be more upset about all the sexual solicitations and close up cell phone pictures of grown mens' penises that probably began flooding the kid's email inbox 30 seconds after they posted a "harmless" "missed connections" ad.
I meant to say I hope r6 is kidding.
There really are some evil people on this site.
If the family has a brain in any of their collective heads the only thing they'll be upset over is that he didn't tell them at the start. That kid's Mom is an idiot (if ANY of this is true including the supposed ratting out).
Gits me r6 digits
This story has near-future Teen Mom blasting from it.
What kinds of gifts go you give for a baby shower for an 11-year old?
r14, people can be murdered walking down the street. Considering the amount of transaction Craigslist facilitates, statistically, it's not particularly unsafe.
OP here...I contacted her immediate family immediately. She sent the email to several family members. Her grandparents are involved. I don't care if they find out about my post. Plus R6, you are so full of shit. OOOH, I am so scared of you. Fool!
R6 you're an idiot, and like most idiots on the DL, even brag about their idiocy.
I often think the DL is the place to come if you want to read what the opposite of ethical is.
I hope your niece doesn't find this thread, OP. She may use trolldar to cross-reference it with the one where you talk about sleeping with her father.
hey weird uncle and u weirdos... i go to school with _____________ (your nice) and she thinks your a ass hole... another guy in our class txt us the link.. now we know your a huge creep! oooo SO SICK you dream of sleeping with ___________'s dad???? you are SO GROSS - shut up 4ever and leave __________ alone!!
This is one of the more disturbing threads that I've read here on DL. I'm not sure whether OP or R6 or little Jason is scarier.

Oh, goodness me, I do wish I hadn't mentioned that . . .
i'm not LITTLE and the only scary guy here is ____________'s uncle the GROSS ass hole!
OH FANK YOU OP, I MISSEDED JASON!
This is an especially scary thread!
Any update on this, OP? Have you been able to get through to the mom or what?
[quote]hey weird uncle and u weirdos
Hark! Did someone say weirdos? They are three aisles left of the Spanish sowsaaage. I'm told they are completely edible! Bon appetit!
I don't understand the point of the CL post. Was it the truth and the daughter really wanted to meet the boy? Or was it some kind of role-playing for the mom? In any case, I doubt the replies went directly to the 9-year-old.
It sounds like the mom is weird herself and trying either to whore the daughter out or use her as bait to lure older pervs and go vigilante on them. Unfortunately probably the former. I'd also bet good money the mother is abusing prescription drugs.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
