Every month Craigslist (not just the online personals section) gets more than 20 billion page views from over 50 million users in the United States alone.
But what ever is removing ads on this site it has it set way to high, i mean if it is the users themselves then that would mean that a group of guys or females are serial flaggers and are just doing it for kicks, and if it is a computerized or automated flagging then its sensitivity is set way to high, i created a email then i posted an ad, nothing that was out of the ordinary, no curse words or vulgar talk or even any pics, and i was flagged for removal within a week, and since then i have posted literally 45 ads one after another , all with different text, and different pics added , some fake and some real, and all were flagged for removal with in 2 days to a week, and the only way you can find out what or why this is happening is to use the craigslist forums which is like a chat room for all the users, and i am supposed to ask other users why i am being flagged and take their advice, but tell me this, if i have posted 45 ads all different than the next some with curse words and some with out, some with pics and some with out and everything i have tried fails, then WHAT IN THE HELL CAN THEY TELL ME THAT I HAVEN'T ALREADY TRIED!!??
At the end of the day this site is worthless, with the exception of selling something like a car or a t.v., other than that the personals are a joke and the staff or whoever runs the site are basically getting paid to sit on their butts, in my opinion the way to a successful business is consumer interaction, and even if like in this case this site being almost free in many ways with the exception of adult services and paid ads, there still has to be some sort of link put into place for all users to contact customer service and someone to work dealing with customer complaints, and getting rid of the computer section that is flagging people for no reason, or at least making it harder for just anyone to flag you and having their friends flag you just because they couldnt get laid in a morgue.
Craigslist is not the place to date or have a fwb because when you end up talking to the person the back out like this one girl I met on there bogus af I she didn't want to plan to meet up she should have just said something instead of ignoring me after sending kik messages back and forth then I asked her what's her Facebook after talking to her for a while she didn't give it to me she asked me for my Facebook but I told her my page is deactivated but she could look me up on messenger after that no messages after trying to reach out to her on kik This is just a site for idiots that are too dam lazy to go put any effort in public relations.
This is also a site for married Moron's to cheat with whatever disease they can find. I would like to start off by stating that i am a married white male in my 40's and i never get on the craigslist personals looking for a female since i am married, now having said that i would definitely have been addicted to it and used it to meet females 20 yrs ago when i was active in meeting females that way, i didn't know about it at that time so i was left with phone chat lines which revealed plenty of females, most of which lied about their ages to lying about their looks so many of my encounters were everything from just OK to down right disgusting.
The one big problem with Craigslist is you have to be very careful of scams and fraud.
