Remember: With Craigslist, content is added by everyone to be used by
everyone. It's a different type of gig. If my site delivered merely a
service (e.g. photo sharing -- Flickr, data gateway -- Google Groups) and
was not self-sustaining, that would be a different scenario altogether.
If your pageview pace includes crawlers, then "my (main) site is bigger than
your site" (TM). *smile*
