So any simple ideas on how not to get flagged on Craigslist?
I post a W4M personals ad no more than once a month or so. Inoffensive ad, nice pic. I quickly get flagged and deleted. I ask CL forum for advice, get snarky advice (nothing to do with any violations), advice doesn't work.

I have heard (on this board) that is is specifically a problem in W4M personals, especially the sincere (non erotic, non adulterous) ones. Perhaps because guys that don't fit the ad parameters get mad and hit the flag button.

What steps can I take to reduce the chance of this happening?

Here are some ideas that I am kicking around:

1) use a different computer each time (like in a library)

2) make a new account with a new email each time

3) log onto a new internet provider (like in a coffee shop)

4) unplug modem each time (mine is a wireless modem

5) delete internet history and cookies (?)

Any comments on the above ideas?

Any other ideas?

Because of its size, CL is still the best way to post to meet new people - I'd hate to have to give up on that.

Thanks alot!

I'd be happy with any advice that worked. The CL forum told me to add a physical description. I did. I still got flagged and removed. Another woman was told not to have a list in her ad. This stuff had nothing to do with any TOS violations. And it did not work (at least in my case).

Hmm. Let's see if I actually get any useful advice about how to avoid flagging. I appreciate all of the humor (ha - not), but some relevant feedback would help.

Most craigslist "flags" come from other readers. Either someone perceiving you as competition or believing that your ad is mis-categorized or commercial in nature.

Close, but you should have misspelled a dozen words and it would have been a dead ringer for ads I see all the time.

Not a spammer or a scammer. Decent-looking (maybe I'll try next time with no image posted). Not marketing anything. CL happens to be a good way to meet new people, better than match or eharmony. Just don't like getting flagged. Like I said, I hear its a common problem with legit women on W4M ads - the spammers and scammers have less problems.

Put a pic of your snapper/beaver up, and you will have no problems. None at all.

Have you also tried looking under CL's 'Communities' at activities and groups? There are some nice ways of getting together with people there too.

Post it in M4M with a sexy title. Most guys on M4M are bi-sexual, not gay, so they will be happy to see your misplaced ad.

Be thankful they are getting flagged. Someone could be saving your life and at the very least the health of whomever is unfortunate enough to answer your monthly ad.

Or.... like a previous posted suggested, have your pimp post it.

Likely other women flagging you down, especially if you are somewhat attractive. Good way for them to get rid of any competition, especially if they think you will get responses rather then them.

Not sure there is much you can do about it, except repost. The gay guys flag the W4M posts.

Absolutely True.
