IST, the online phenomenon that is equal parts soapbox, singles bar and garage sale, is trying to boost revenues. But proponents of the Web site's public service attitude need not fear — the company is just trying to cover its costs. "We get so many job listings and we review them all manually. It takes up a disproportionate amount of time for our customer service people. The best way for us to separate the wheat from the chaff is to have a modest fee," Craigslist Chief Executive Jim Buckmaster told The Post.
