JOKE OF A SITE

Here's the bottom line: Craigslist is free and the creator and the people who supposedly work there do NOT care about anything that goes on with the site. That is why they rely 100% on users to flag the ads. The individuals that flag the ads are mainly bitter and spiteful people. They do it because in their opinion they don't like it or you. I posted in the Flag Help Forum and every reason I received as to why my ad was flagged was nothing but a person's opinion. Not one person could tell me why according to the precious CL rules my ad was flagged and removed.
CL is a joke, but you get what you pay for.
It's obvious they don't care about the murders and rapes that have occurred as a result of their site, so why would they care if legitimate ads were deleted by users?
You can't reach them by any method invented. Don't expect anyone to call you back or to receive any other reply from an email except one that is canned and automatic.
Take your business elsewhere, is the best advice I can give you.

it's okay

I love craigslist. You would be surprised at the amount of business deals I've made on there. If you are smart, you will not run into any shady people. I've only had 1 bad experience in my 3 years of using it actively.

Craigslist is what you make of it

I have been using Craigslist for a while. Although now I don't use it much, it was great when I lived in the states. I got jobs that paid off the books on there and also because I was rather broke at the time whenever I needed some household item, I found second hand or even free sometimes on there. Obviously I know there's scams on there, but common, people, you can't blame Craigslist. Life is full of scammers. You just need to learn to spot them. It's a gamble in a way to contact people and know how much time and energy to invest in pursuing things but mostly its worked out for me. I think it really depends on what you're using it for and why.

I miss it's former glory...

I can't place ALL the blame on Craigslist for what it has become (spam and scam) but I think they need to implement some type of system o bring the site back to what it used to be. As it is now, it's hard to trust anyone or anything that's being posted. There's absolutely no problem with the interface or the usability - it's the people who use it for their own schemes that bring it down. As soon as Craigslist finds a way to fix, or at least lessen, that problem, they will be golden again!

Scammers and Frauds

For profit company that hides behind a .org domain

They make money by helping prostitution, ex "massage" ads in "services"

They allow prostitution ads and massage ads in the casual encounters section because they do not take down those prohibited postings even when notified

They discriminate by applying rules to some people but not others and there is no complaint or recourse but some stupid public board to complain

They have effectively a monopoly in the United States because no one else can compete against them they are too big and too well known

Helpful

It is organized and does warn you against scammers, but there are still a lot of scams on there that are tricky. I don't know if it is something that craigslist can do something about, but I can't necessarily trust what I find on there.

Growing fast.

Great for classified ads find what you want in the region you live in. It gives the advertiser free classified ads and makes up the revenue by charging for job ads. The site has expanded rapidly and now gets over 20 billion views a month.

very user-friendly

I have used Craigslist to buy and sell items, and I have been satisfied with all transactions. Everytime I have posted an item for sale, I am usually contacted within hours (I even sold tickets to a concert I couldn't go to the morning of the concert!) It is a great way to get in contact with people who you can buy/sell from, especially people within your geographic area so you can easily work out drop off/pickup.
