I followed all of their rules regarding placing a services ad, but initially had trouble getting my ad onto their site. I went to the 'Contact Us' page and sent them an email to obtain help, but all I got was an immediate auto-email message telling me they don't have to help their members but leave that to their 'forums community'.
Well I went to their forums community and entered in all the information only to be told in an error message that I needed to login to post in the forums. So I made sure I was logged in, wrote the whole thing in again (this time I copied it, just in case) and whaddya know? Yes! The same error message.
So not only was I not able to contact them for help, I was blocked from their forums community and on top of that, despite having went through every hoop they wanted me to jump through, they sent me an email today (approximately 6 days after my initial episode with them) that my ads had been flagged and deleted. No explanation, just that darned impersonal auto-email.
Subsequently, I sent them my own auto-email message letting them know I no longer wished to be associated with their crappy web site and to cease and desist any communiques with me from themselves, any of their members or any affiliates, partners or linked companies, entities, or individuals.
I thought this was going to be a FUN experience and I'd be able to expand my services in my local area using a free service, but all I got was a big headache and treated like a trashy liar.
This is why I love Ripoff Report, it's the only site I've found where the little guy in America actually still has a big voice. I hope other people who've been screwed by craigslist.org will see that it's just a money making tax shelter for its owners and doesn't have the common decency of a public service / not-for-profit organization to stand behind its members / users.
Hope to hear craigslist.org gets theirs.
