AFAIK, Craigslist is basically unknown outside the USA.

comment Which brand of backpack should I carry so as to not stick out in Europe?
I think the point is that there are about a hundred things more likely to get you tagged a tourist than the brand of backpack you're wearing.

comment Are inexpensive ryokans inauthentic?
@jpatokal: AFAIK the names for the various types of accomodations used to be completely different anyway and "Ryokan" is basically a post-WW2 category.

comment Are inexpensive ryokans inauthentic?
The Japanese Wikipedia page on ryokan does not agree with this narrow definition.

comment Are inexpensive ryokans inauthentic?
I don't think this is right. I've stayed in several inner-city ryokan. They were all cheap and not at all tourist attractions. The rooms were small (futon==no extra space for a bed) and had shared bathrooms - quite space-efficient. Of course they were not in top locations (i.e. a 5 or 10 minute walk away from the subway station instead of next to it) and the buildings rather old.

comment What unit of Euro coins/banknote does Rome use the most and what they don't accept normally?
You are still wrong, for the reasons I have given in detail in my previous comment. The thing with the receipt is an interesting point (not sure if it's correct though), but if there is a sign "we only accept €100 notes and smaller", it would be part of the contract.

comment What unit of Euro coins/banknote does Rome use the most and what they don't accept normally?
-1: your first point is completely wrong. It's perfectly legal for a shop to refuse selling you something for certain banknotes (or refuse coins, or refuse cash entirely, or accept only bananas as payment). The law says that these banknotes and coins have to be accepted to settle debt. But legally, when you're in a shop and want to buy something, you don't (yet) owe a debt, you're merely offering them a contract of sale, and they can accept or refuse that contract. It's different if you pay afterwards (in a hotel or restaurant), but even then it can be made part of the contract in advance.
