When contacted, craigslist said they would release data about the poster if they were issued a subpoena.

Free Gaming and be allowed to buy consoles and games worldwide: " Since
the death of Lik Sang last year it is now virtually impossible to import games
into the UK and Europe from companies like Play Asia, Play Asia are obviously
scared of lawsuits from Sony for selling PSP & PS3 games to the UK after Sony
went after UK firms and eventually claimed the scalp of Lik Sang who were easily
the biggest importer of games and consoles worldwide. I suppose you can understand
Sonys point that hardware brought from Japan may not work or with stepdown power
issues not last long but people who import know this anyway. But with systems
like the PSP, Nintendo DS and Playstation 3 all being region free systems it seems
stupid that we cant buy games (and consoles) from anywhere in the world."

Recently, Tokyo has requested for political speeches to be pulled from the site claiming that it gave certain hopefuls an advantage over others for Sunday's election. You may recall Youtube being in trouble with more than couplecountries. Is it fair that some government officials are being viewed more on Youtube than others or is it simply leveling the playing field for anyone with a message since it costs very little to put a video on Youtube? American politics seem to have embraced it either way."
