My thoughts on this is worrying about good people proposing something potentially dangerous. Are Craig Newmark and others concerned about phishing, identity theft, sexual predators, child molesters, and other vermin on the internet, going to cause unnecessary censorship and silence political dissent on the net with their good ideas being abused? Well, if a proposed "Reputation Engine" is instituted where your email, IP address, name all get an internet reputation rating, whether you are allowed to date online, post on the internet, or even to search of information on the internet might soon be restricted by your reputation quotient.

Craig Alexander Newmark (born in 1952) is an Internet entrepreneur best known for founding San Francisco-based website craigslist and shaking up the classified advertising business.

Upon graduation he attended college at Case Western Reserve University.
As a senior Web-oriented software engineer, with around twenty-five years of experience (including 18 years at IBM), he has become a leader in online community by virtue of running for over 9 years. He's compiled extensive experience evangelizing, leading and building, including work at Bank of America and Charles Schwab.

In 1995, he started craigslist which serves as a non-commercial community bulletin board with classifieds and discussion forums. Using a common sense, down-to-earth approach, craigslist strives to make the 'net more personal and authentic, while advocating social responsibility through the promotion of small, non-profit organizations.
