Dating personals in
Then early 2014 I was dating a beautiful 18 year old girl (I'm almost 40) for a few months.
So here we are at the point of my complaint, since i have been using craigslist i have noticed some really annoying which makes a user like myself not even want to use the site again, and that is the fact that the way they have the site set up to deal with what ads stay and what ads get removed, and if you read the description in the faqs section under being flagged for removal it will tell you that their are two ways that you can be removed, one is by the users who also browse the site flagging your ad for removal, but from what i have been told it takes many to flag your ad before it is removed, and then the other way is an automated removal system or a computer that has its parameters set to be alerted to what ever it is that is not allowed by or under the craigslist terms of service.
Even girls that have no pic up (most real ones don't, hell most fakes don't either), and a couple sentences probably get 40 messages in the first hour. Moving on, posting on CL - mostly for sex, has netted me some really attractive one night stands.
I look for something somewhat specific, but common and something many women are into, even if only temporarily.
But what ever is removing ads on this site it has it set way to high, i mean if it is the users themselves then that would mean that a group of guys or females are serial flaggers and are just doing it for kicks, and if it is a computerized or automated flagging then its sensitivity is set way to high, i created a email then i posted an ad, nothing that was out of the ordinary, no curse words or vulgar talk or even any pics, and i was flagged for removal within a week, and since then i have posted literally 45 ads one after another , all with different text, and different pics added , some fake and some real, and all were flagged for removal with in 2 days to a week, and the only way you can find out what or why this is happening is to use the craigslist forums which is like a chat room for all the users, and i am supposed to ask other users why i am being flagged and take their advice, but tell me this, if i have posted 45 ads all different than the next some with curse words and some with out, some with pics and some with out and everything i have tried fails, then WHAT IN THE HELL CAN THEY TELL ME THAT I HAVEN'T ALREADY TRIED!!??
At the end of the day this site is worthless, with the exception of selling something like a car or a t.v., other than that the personals are a joke and the staff or whoever runs the site are basically getting paid to sit on their butts, in my opinion the way to a successful business is consumer interaction, and even if like in this case this site being almost free in many ways with the exception of adult services and paid ads, there still has to be some sort of link put into place for all users to contact customer service and someone to work dealing with customer complaints, and getting rid of the computer section that is flagging people for no reason, or at least making it harder for just anyone to flag you and having their friends flag you just because they couldnt get laid in a morgue.

I met a couple other young ladies around 20 over the summer, again for fun times. Several years back, probably around the time the original article was written, I posted more traditional ads looking to date.
