    I've been a regular user of my local Craigslist for over two years now to help sell my used CD's in addition to here and Discogs. Over the last two or three days my renewed ads have been getting flagged consistently yet my older ads that don't require relisting yet remain untouched. I've already posted a thread in their flag help Forum and even went as far as sending them an email this morning to try and get to the bottom of what's going on. I've never had a bad transaction through Craigslist so it's not a disgruntled buyer and my listings have all been under the same title since the beginning so I don't believe it's that either.

    Has anyone here had a similar experience and if so what was the scenario and conclusion?

    personally I have never had this issue. But a few years back I had a buyer, purchase a lot of home gym equipment from me. He said basically what you are saying. All his ads getting flagged and what a pain it was re-loading his ads.
    I don't know what he did to resolve it- but it turned out it was a competitor-or another guy selling used gym equipment in his state/area. sounds like the same thing. somebody trying to sell their cds/music too and trying to eliminate his competition. hope it works out for you

    :agree: This is what my wife suggested might be the case. Thank goodness I have the stamina of Hercules. I also added at the beginning of my renewals.

    "To the person who keeps flagging my CD sales. I'm just a guy trying to sell some of my CD collection here on Craigslist. I don't understand why you are continually doing this as I have never had a bad transaction here on Craigslist. If there is a problem that I am unaware of please respond to my ad and let's talk. Thanks"

    So far so good so maybe he/she ran out of gas after 3 days of badgering me.
