Frustrating Online Advertizing

It is so unfair how the owner of does not protect his subscribers who post everyday on his site.

Competitive business owners or automatic freaks on the website do not cease to police the site waiting for someone better than them to flag their ads for instant removal from the various classified categories.

It's becoming so annoying that many people are starting to depart and search for other sites where they will not be subject to being constantly flagged by immature people on the internet. Two alternatives to craigslist are Theadcloud and Backpage, although not as visible and highly trafficked, are much safer to post.

What can Mr. Craig Newmark do now that he's profited from advertisers who pay to post and get flagged? The ones who post for free don't stand a chance against anonymous online attacks and petty jealousies.

A little pop up appears in your e-mail inbox with the warning message: "Your ad has been flagged by Craigslist users, " Your ad has been removed by Craigslist Staff." There have been times where I've posted the same ad thirteen times with no success.

Is it worth the time spent?
