WE already told you "why?" we are looking for a new member, but we haven't mentioned "how?". "How?" is an important question, and we have a variety of strategies. One was to go on a recruitment mission to Ottawa, another to publicly open ourselves to accepting bribes, and yet another is to carefully contemplate each of our bike friend's credentials. But one very important measure we took has been rejected!! REJECTED!!
I decided that in order to make our hunt as far reaching as possible that i would post an add on the people's classifieds, CRAIGSLIST. I have deep love for Craiglist. It has found me apartments, jobs, free couches, and given me hours of entertainment surfing personals. But apparently Craiglist doesn't want to help the Deadly Nightshades on this one. Shortly after posting it i received a "flagged and removed" email. No explanation. Here is the posting and let me know if i've stepped over some invisible offensive line:
"MIDNIGHT BIKE GANG SEEKS NEW RECRUIT!!!!
We are looking for a new member for a notable, toronto based, all girl bicycle gang.
A qualified applicant will be:
sassy, intimidating, gutsy, witty, and not afraid to start a bar fight.
definite musts (if this is not you, than you are reading the wrong post):
 BIKE RIDING AS A WAY OF LIFE
OUT-OF-ORBIT SENSE OF STYLE
PASSION FOR CREATIVE GREEN SOLUTIONS
So let us know why YOU are worthy!

IS THIS SO OFFENSIVE??? Why can't we look for gang members on the internet?? This is some kind of discrimination against gangs!!
GEEZ!! You have broken my trust craigslist.
