    sorry, but i need to blow off steam.

    someone on our site is flagging everone's post. i've noticed recently the horse posts have gone done and now, this morning, someone is flagging all my chicken posts. i'll put them up and they'll flag me 15 min later. i'll put them up again and they'll flag me again!

    i have a certificate from the texas animal health commission that says i am allowed to sell these chickens and and i have that listed on my ads. and pet sales are the only ones' that are suppose to be flagged. GGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

    okay. i feel better now.

    thanks for letting me vent. [​IMG]

    Well, thanks for venting sometimes that is all we need to do and all that we can do. Is here a way you can get ahold of the people that run the site there? I would need to vent if I were you too.

    the weird thing is they're not flagging all my posts, just the batam polish and RIR ads. my easter egger and buff orp ads they don't touch. [​IMG]

    bunch of weirdos! :mad:

    Haha, maybe that's because they are a) ridding of competition, b) don't know what a buff orp or EE is.

    Are you posting under pets or under farm and garden?


    Take care,

    Its because you're posting more than one ad in the section I bet.

    Had it happen to me too. [​IMG]

    I had my chicken ad under farms and gardens flagged.
    Luckily Lee saw the ad before it was flagged the few chickens I was selling went to a good home. YAY Rooster Red! [​IMG]

    Here is an example of a reply to a similar ad from craigslist.

    "How about just placing one ad just saying that you have chickens for sale, and not placing so many ads.If someone is interested they can contact you and you can send pics of all your chickens.You are also making a business out of chickens , not just rehoming your pet chickens. Go and place your chickens in the greensheet or the chronicle. There you can go crazy placing ads."
