Craigslist is not the place to date or have a fwb because when you end up talking to the person the back out like this one girl I met on there bogus af I she didn't want to plan to meet up she should have just said something instead of ignoring me after sending kik messages back and forth then I asked her what's her Facebook after talking to her for a while she didn't give it to me she asked me for my Facebook but I told her my page is deactivated but she could look me up on messenger after that no messages after trying to reach out to her on kik This is just a site for idiots that are too dam lazy to go put any effort in public relations.
This is also a site for married Moron's to cheat with whatever disease they can find. I would like to start off by stating that i am a married white male in my 40's and i never get on the craigslist personals looking for a female since i am married, now having said that i would definitely have been addicted to it and used it to meet females 20 yrs ago when i was active in meeting females that way, i didn't know about it at that time so i was left with phone chat lines which revealed plenty of females, most of which lied about their ages to lying about their looks so many of my encounters were everything from just OK to down right disgusting.

Since being married and me being the freak that i am sexually the thought of me being with another female just didn't appeal to me, but once i realized that the thought of my wife being with another man really turned me on i have on many many occasions browsed this site looking for another man to fulfill some fantasies, but have not yet met the right guy for them since it is a very scary situation to make happen, and the reason i say that is because there are so many people that are infected with some sort of sexually transmitted disease and most do not even know it and since most are transmitted through bodily fluids having sex with someone can be very scary.
I will admit that i cant get around what turns me on, so no matter how much it scares me i still post ads and browse the ads looking for Mr.
So here we are at the point of my complaint, since i have been using craigslist i have noticed some really annoying which makes a user like myself not even want to use the site again, and that is the fact that the way they have the site set up to deal with what ads stay and what ads get removed, and if you read the description in the faqs section under being flagged for removal it will tell you that their are two ways that you can be removed, one is by the users who also browse the site flagging your ad for removal, but from what i have been told it takes many to flag your ad before it is removed, and then the other way is an automated removal system or a computer that has its parameters set to be alerted to what ever it is that is not allowed by or under the craigslist terms of service.
Craigslist first started as an email list for events in San Francisco in 1995 by Craig Newmark.
In almost 15 years this classifieds website has grown to become the seventh largest English language website.
But what ever is removing ads on this site it has it set way to high, i mean if it is the users themselves then that would mean that a group of guys or females are serial flaggers and are just doing it for kicks, and if it is a computerized or automated flagging then its sensitivity is set way to high, i created a email then i posted an ad, nothing that was out of the ordinary, no curse words or vulgar talk or even any pics, and i was flagged for removal within a week, and since then i have posted literally 45 ads one after another , all with different text, and different pics added , some fake and some real, and all were flagged for removal with in 2 days to a week, and the only way you can find out what or why this is happening is to use the craigslist forums which is like a chat room for all the users, and i am supposed to ask other users why i am being flagged and take their advice, but tell me this, if i have posted 45 ads all different than the next some with curse words and some with out, some with pics and some with out and everything i have tried fails, then WHAT IN THE HELL CAN THEY TELL ME THAT I HAVEN'T ALREADY TRIED!!??
At the end of the day this site is worthless, with the exception of selling something like a car or a t.v., other than that the personals are a joke and the staff or whoever runs the site are basically getting paid to sit on their butts, in my opinion the way to a successful business is consumer interaction, and even if like in this case this site being almost free in many ways with the exception of adult services and paid ads, there still has to be some sort of link put into place for all users to contact customer service and someone to work dealing with customer complaints, and getting rid of the computer section that is flagging people for no reason, or at least making it harder for just anyone to flag you and having their friends flag you just because they couldnt get laid in a morgue.
