    I swear I don't know why I even bother with trying anything on that pos site.
    I came up with a fairly decent idea to try on there. It involved something with chatting. I put up my ad, got a few replies but sure enough, got flagged. I mean come on, 99% of all ads in the casual encounters section are so blatantly bogus and yet they stay up there. And if I do say so myself, mine was pretty good. So could it be the chat thing that keeps me getting busted? This could be a good idea but only if I can get a post to stay on there.

    The "BEST" advice I can give you bro... Hell with the Casual Encounters - They are a bunch of FlagTards in there.

    If you want the "SECOND BEST" advice... If you must post in the Casual Encounters make you ad look very legit and don't include a URL or IM name in your post. Let your "target audience" reply to your email and then use an autoresponder like Thunderbird to delay an email response back to them.

    And... Lastly... You need a shitload of posts to even make a buck on CL. If you are posting manually then you are wasting your time.

    Yeah, it's probably your competitors. People that post in that section go through and flag every ad possible that's not theirs. Every now and then you can get one to make it through for a while.

    I actually seen on Elance a few weeks back that someone was trying to outsource a flagging job on CL.

    If you go to the rants and raves you will see that more often than not, its real people flagging shit in the casual encounters, if you're getting flagged then someone is onto your game.

    Yeh there are programs/scripts out there that people run to flag everything that is not theirs. I heard you can rate your own ads Best Of CL and they stick better.

    Honestly... I tried the CE section of CL for a couple days... Couldn't get anything to stick for shit... Said hell with that... There is other sections that can make decent money.

    Good points all and probably all have something to do with it. At cyp: I actually thought my post was really low key. Didn't mention any sites, urls, nada, zip. Just said something about chatting and waited for the email replies which is where I was going to actually respond to manually. But yeah, flagged. I'm gonna rethink and retry coz this all revolves around dating sites where I already make a shitload, this is just another tactic that I thought of that could bring in another hundred or so a day if I get it running.
    Hey buzzkill...hadn't seen you around for a while, hope things are going okay for you. Milwaukee? For some reason I thought you were out west near me.

    All of the above is correct. From my experience, it's best not to post anything about chatting, vids, cams or anything like that. Make your ads sound as real and natural as possible. Look at some of the other ads that are staying up and emulate their's. Don't copy them word for word but do what they are doing with your own twist.

    Hope this helps.
