if someone decides to flag your post it doesn't really matter what you are trying to sell. Have had several dirtbike posts flagged and removed and had to re-list.

Yep, just list again. It wasn't Craigslist that flagged you, it was readers. If enough of them do it your ad comes down automatically, and what usually happens is one person takes offense at your ad then goes to a forum they belong to and posts a thread with a link to your ad asking for others to flag it too. As soon as enough people do it gets removed.:rolleyes:

I'm going to word it very creatively so that dumb arses can't tell from the title what it is...except someone looking for that specific item.

Can I get some help on the title?

Ok, so I've never posted anything for sale or bought anything on Craigslist. Can somebody to me why an ad for puppies would get "flagged" by readers and pulled from the site? I don't get it.

I bet if you offered to let people f*ck those puppies, you'd get a mass of perverts with checkbooks in-hand knocking on your door...

Just list it like you did before, and if it gets flagged, then list it again. I think you have to change up the text a little to get by the autobot screening process, but thats just how craigslist is. It's actually good for sellers 'cause relisting it keeps your item on top.

2 years ago I made about 4 grand selling Wii's on C/L at Christmas time, I would have to relist about every hour 'cause of the flaggers that hated resellers and all it did was keep my ad at the top of the page.
 
Maybe someone is tired of the puppy mill that you're running over there Scott. You know those pups look a little under nourished and not very well taken care of. (JK)

It's amazing that you can meet a guy on Craigslist that will wear woman's clothes and parade around like a fairy but you can't legitimately sell a pup. Someone out there doesn't like you very much Scott.

Yep, lots of people on there trying to get rid of anything that has to do with animals, especially dogs. They think everyone on there is running a puppy mill.
We had the same problem when we put a dog on there, tried many different creative wordings and just gave up.

We bought our pup off Craigslist so it must be the anti-puppymill people. Some of them are nuts. The pet store we buy our dog supplies from has protestors out there every weekend, and they don't sell dogs from a puppy mill.:confused:
