Humor

Earlier this year the website agreed to drop its "erotic services" section over claims that it promoted pornography, but otherwise the unmoderated, anything-goes ethos on which its success was built continues.

Below we present a selection of some of the most bizarre adverts, requests and personals listed on the site - from the elderly woman looking for a lodger to live in her bathroom, to the man selling 1,300 Pope hats.

2) I want some orange juice

3) Seeking adult drunk clown for 30th birthday party

Richard Stallman and Phil Zimmerman underline key concerns with tech sector

Two of technology's most pioneering developers have strongly criticised the current state of the industry, warning that the right to encryption is doomed and that users are exploited by the software that they use. Open sourcerer Richard Stallman has painted a very bleak picture of today's technology and communications environment, describing proprietary software as "malware". Stallman, the founder of the free software movement, perhaps not surprisingly has a very jaundiced view of proprietary software, and of Microsoft Windows especially. Read more
