    I'm so frustrated. I have hatching eggs to sell. I put them on Craigslist and they are flagged. I resubmit, they are flagged, I relist and just put eggs for sale. NOTHING ELSE, they flag it AGAIN... I contact Craigslist, and tell them what is going on, I'm ignored, I use their blog and ask for help and they are condescending. I give up...

    Can you tell that I think they are the scourge of Satan?

    Thanks for letting me blow off steam!

    Is your ad using other people's images or images from another site? I know those get flagged. . . . Is it selling gamefowl? Perhaps there's a radical vegan going around who thinks they're for eating? [​IMG]

    Sometimes I see ads on craigslist that start out by saying something like,

    "Whoever is flagging this post, stop! It is not against the rules to sell _____!!"

    somepeople just have a lot of time on their hands and like to flag.

    I would just keep trying. Somepeople don't understand that the sale of livestock is permitted. Possibly somebody is mad because they tried to sell their dogs on craigslist...

    It takes a lot of flags to pull a ad but takes one less every time you have one flagged off.

    Special groups have CL flagging teams...
