"Site is NOT moderated-warning"

March 13, 2009  |  By stick joe

 |  Version: Craigslist Widget 1.0

Pros

nothing at all.

Cons

see below...

Summary

I posted personal ads several times and each time the same troll spammed my email address and posted the same insults to me on their personal ad page, all this despite my reporting all of it.  Then one time I reported it I got the same, curious, reply "Thank you for your report.  That post was removed."..how could this be I thought, "that post" which this reply said was removed was MINE, because I had sent a report that said "See my ad here?  Watch this troll post insults to me and then flag it repeatedly till its removed."..they have their computer programmed to take keywords form your reports, like the post I.D. # and then remove it and send that same reply "Thank you for your report.  That post was removed.", obviously sending me THIS particluar reply saying "That post was removed" means NO LIVE PERSON read my report, hence they would've known I WASNT reporting a post to remove, but pointing out something else entirely!!  Hence, this is how come I found the place it NOT moderated...when people report someone, the computer has been programmed to look in the report for keywords, like the subject which on this site is "911" and "post I.D.", so the computer will automatically delete that post and send that same auto reply.
 
With no moderation any place, no wonder criagslist long time users keep saying the place is over run with scams, spammers, and trollers.  Now, I can see WHY.

And this isnt only the personals section, I've read their feedback and help forums, this is going on all over the site.

I'd tend to think any positive reviews of this site are spammers posting or people from craigslist trying to promote their own site, since it's clearly NOT the publics opinions.

I forgot to mention, on a recent FoxNews report, someone from craigslist was interviewed on why there are so many prostitutes openly posting ads in the escort services section, he said, "We dont review anything.  Theres too much of  it".  So, this is his ADMITTING theres NO MODERATION of this site.  See what I mean. "We dont review anything" would INCLUDE peoples abuse reports that are sent in as well.

Btw, they just "make it look moderated", but its not.

Also, only when you 1st post are you given an anonymous email address for people to reply to, once they reply to you the only way to contact them is directly from your own email account, hence you'll get spammed.
