    I posted some of my chicks for sale on CL, and my post kept getting flagged. So I went to the flag help forum, (big mistake) all I got was filthy language and stupid remarks! They said that I am a business and need to post in "services"! Well in services there is only porn ans spam nonsense. I will probably be banned from CL(how sad) I only post there because I don't know where else to sell my chicks. They said you can only post ONE time for similar items. WHAT??? I am sooo done with that place. The people "incharge" are as trashy mouthed as some of the posts!!! Whew! I think I am done now, but I was sooo mad![​IMG]

    yeah farms and gardens is the place for chicks or CL...it's actually where I got mine. However I had trouble with them too when I posted a "want" for materials to build my coop. Bummer.

    WOW! I hate to hear this, as we have such good luck finding things on there . . .I can't understand why they would talk so bad to you, that is not good for business at all . . . what are they thinking!!!! The best advertisement out there is word of mouth, and that won't be the case with you from now on will it!!! They are just dummies!!!!

    Quote:Yes I did. I was posting in Fayetteville, but Raleigh is about the same distance from me, so I posted there this time. Fayetteville has lots of people selling chicks.

    Post under farm and garden. Don't use your business name. Shoot Shook poultry does it all the time on the Charlotte board.

    You can post more than once you just have to change the wording so the computer doesn't kick it out. OR post your item one day, delete it the next and post it again.

    There are ways around the system!!

    Maybe you're putting too much info into your listing. I would leave out any webpage/business name just the basic info under farm & garden should work.

    Those are the CL rules. You agree to them when you post. It's considered spamming to post the same thing in more than one area. You have to pick ONE area.

    What I usually do is alternate. I'll make a post in one area, then a few weeks later I'll post in another area.
