Listings on Craigslist getting Flagged/Deleted?
***UPDATED DISCLOSURE: I had an interesting phone call yesterday from New York. A gentleman had seen this blog here on Active Rain and was hoping to find out more from me... reasons why his ads were being flagged and removed from craigslist. Please note that I am not a Craigslist Employee, nor am I an expert. The information I have regarding posting your ads on Craigslist quite simply comes from their rules & regulations: http://www.craigslist.org/about/help/ ***
Ok... so recently I posted an entirely non-Real Estate related want ad for a yorkie on Craigslist, only to find it had been flagged/deleted the next day. It got me wondering ... HOW???? WHY????? WHO??????
FOR CLARIFICATION PURPOSES (since I keep getting emails from people telling me I probably just broke the rules):IN THE TERMS OF CL, NO WHERE DOES IT SAY YOU CAN NOT POST A PETS WANTED AD. IN FACT IT IS NOT AGAINST THE RULES. Even the people flagging your listing will tell you it's NOT against the rules... they just don't want it there. Simply put, there are people who spend almost their entire day removing these posts because they "feel" it encourages underhanded sales of animals.... again... NOT against the rules...
This flows ... more
