PadMapper is a service that allows apartment hunters to view Craigslist postings pinned on a Google map. They offer this service for free and without serving ads: just like Craigslist.
And yet, without warning or explanation, last Friday PadMapper received a Cease and Desist notice from Craigslist: effectively shutting down a selfless service that is used and loved by thousands of people.
PadMapper and Craigslist are a match made in heaven, but their lover's quarrel threatens to ruin a perfect marriage. Please stand with me in reuniting them once and for all.
Craig of Craigslist, Please don't shut down PadMapper!
Here is a link to the official notice from PadMapper.
