Panning Craigslist for occasional nuggets and finding fool's gold.

(I originally posted this to LinkedIn but thought it equally useful here).

As part of my morning ritual, I scan a few categories on Craigslist (photo/video items for sale, upcoming events, small biz ads, etc.). Today I came across a rather funny but sad post.http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/evg/2657192230.html

I've seen some So Cal photogs post angry "rebuttal" ads to some of the more ridiculous offers (I don't see the point - time is better spent off-craigslist looking for sales). But it did make me curious as to how pervasive the craigslist-type devaluation is in the real world. 

Have you encountered similar expectations from new potential (or established) clients? If so, do you think it's the depressed economy, buyer ignorance, or something else?
