Craigslist Ads have been my go to for local advertising for years. In 2018, Craigslist seems to be unable to control false Ghosting and Flagging. Any “competitor” can use illegal Ghosting and Flagging software to give them an edge. As someone who advertises on Craigslist, If this is your plan, I’d recommend a strong VPN or perhaps your own proxy server, maybe both. I’ve been a self employed computer consultant since the 90’s in South Florida. I opened a CL account in 1996, used it with great success until it got hacked and shutdown. I decided not to bother with it and created another account in 2007, which I am using right now. In 2018, I’m still posting to CL with success. In fact, I just refreshed my CL ads yesterday. 🙂 Anyone who has posted on Craigslist as long as I, knows getting Flagged or Ghosted is something you may need to get use to until CL fixes this. Remember, the majority of these Flags and Ghosting are not random. It’s more than likely not Craigslist either, it’s your competitors.
