with comic relief and periphery stuff; pretty much every time I check (which is not too often anymore), I keep finding statements to the effect that Craig Newmark is gay, more on craigslist than other sites, most of them get removed relatively quickly
here is a relatively recent one that still has the email address of the poster and the gist of the message -- currently on Google search cash (the craigslist page no longer exists -- you get the craigslist 404 error message, Jim's crazy-cow-wondering-if-to-return-to-the-craigslist-page -- is he realizing that people getting that message would rightly resent the implication?)

If anybody decides to really look into this issue and come up with a definite conclusion, please let me know! (again, unless somebody *shows* any actual wrong doing, in the context of NAMBLA perhaps, I only see it as a problem to the extent that he is deceiving people, especially his long term girlfriend, Eileen Whelpley -- if he truly is gay but pretends not to be and she has no idea)
