    It won't last long.....CL is already at a serious disadvantage to FB and FB is free and has a million times the daily traffic as CL. I hate FB and don't have a page, but there's no way I'm paying five dollars to list a car or a motorcycle especially if I only want a few hundred dollars when I can do it free on Google/Zuckvision and I guarantee that's what most people will do too. I realize that classified ads in publications charged for a FS ad, but free versus five dollars? Yeah. Fail. They should have taken on ads first before they tried that. Are they unaware of FB Marketplace? I doubt it. FB/CL/internet are the reason alot of printed classifieds are dying out and it has everything to do with fees or the lack thereof.

    Exactly, I wonder about how much will be missed out on maybe I wanted to buy that xyz item someone was getting rid of for cheap but maybe now they don’t put it on craigs because of the fee

    and I would be fine with ads, they’re everywhere else anyway

    Some of my best purchases in past years was posted on Craigslist. It went downhill when GOOGLE screwed with Searchtempest so it was so more time consuming to search multiple C-list areas.

    Oh BTW I hate dentists, cracked a tooth first week of October and after the third appt the bums finally pulled it tonight.

    Something that pisses me off is when you buy a used vehicle and the first time you drive it as an owner everybody that pulls up beside you at a red light has a vehicle that is knocking, smoking or emitting some sort of obnoxious oil, rubber or coolant odor that makes you think that your vehicle is jacked up when in fact it’s theirs that is.

    Does anyone else besides me find this very stressful, or should I seek help?

    Sounds like you need to seek another dentist. I don't have dental insurance, but the place I got to does great work... and they don't accept Medicaid, but they do accept Medicare (I'm not old enough for that). Since it's a small place I asked them why that is, and effectively they would have to double their prices because Medicaid requires the business to write off 50% or more of the bill as a loss.... and people wonder why health care is so expensive. Also since I was paying with cash, I got a 10% discount on top of their already pretty good prices. A solid gold crown was $800, and the install process was another $800 so $1600 total. I could have got the porcelain coated gold tooth to look "natural" but I prefer longevity over looks for a rear tooth.


    Anyway, thread caught my attention so had to check in, so I guess I should post something on topic too... well not much stuff gets me worked up, about the only thing that really gets under my skin are tailgaters and people with bright lights behind me (or a combo of both).

    Maybe out your way the dentists do it all in one place as a walk in, that must be nice....We have to use an oral surgeon for extractions and root canals, etc which means a person can't simply show up at an oral surgeon's office unless your regular dentist confirms your tooth is busted, and referred you to the 'specialist'.

    As with most procedures the doctor would need to check patient initially, then reschedule the surgery for a later date. So if I were to just show up at an oral surgeon's office without a referral from another 'dentist', they would book me two separate appointments anyway....heaven forbid they take a patient's word for it that they have a broken tooth!
    It is a racket with or without insurance, and cash isn't an incentive for them to get you in and out same day...booking multiple appointments are more to their liking.

    The dentist I have does all the work related to teeth. The helpers he has does like cleanings and such, but the "real" work he does. The office has something like 5-7 workers, was two dentists but the younger guy retired already at like 50 years old and the guy still doing his stuff is around 60. He's not even in a huge rush, takes his time, does quality work, and you can ask questions and such. I got into their office by just calling them and explaining my issue (had a wisdom rotted through the crown). They charged extra because it was an "emergency" appointment.

    The last dentist I went to also did great work, but same story, doesn't take the insurance. Sadly his office is so booked, soonest appointment slot is 6+ months out. My mom's dentist she hates, rough finish work for fillings (gaps/holes) and they are in a huge rush and don't care if you go through pain etc. My fillings take about an hour, her's are like 30 mins.

    For the crown it was 3 appointments, first was to inspect and basically validate what I already knew. Took antibiotics and about 3-4 weeks later was the next appointment to get the tooth molded, grown down, stud installed and the temp crown glued in. Last appointment was removing the temp crown and installing the permanent one.


    Maybe state laws are different for different states or something? What you describe sounds like normal doctors and all the hoops they require you to jump through.
