    I stopped ghosting about a month ago in the real estate section and everything was good. Then a day or two ago, bam... ghosting again. Even after complying with a second PVA on the account.

    Tried an older account (good PVA) and it ghosted.

    I notice though that the number of posts that have posted is down by at least 2/3. Looks like CL is overprotecting itself again. Not much span in the RE section and they are just about ghosting everything, good and bad.

    If they shut off the servers, then they could stop all spam from getting on it.

    Just take a look at the help section of CL. They don't give a shit. There is no rhyme or reason over there. Just a bunch of incompetent retards, who make a mess on a daily basis.

    Best part is most of the good spammers :) are still getting their ads up, while a ton of their regular mom an pop users are getting screwed in the ass.

    Once again I commend you CL for helping me make more money with your sloppy ass filters. Keep up the good work.

    Here is a little hint though. Content. You need to change your content. See what others are doing to get their ads up and mirror it. Not brain surgery.

    Content content content works for me everytime in the Real Estate section, just changing the content, url's and having various domains I can have redirecting to my main site.
    That seems to be working and making them stick for me

    I'm back up and no longer ghosting. The quality of the IP is a big deal. My IP was resolving to a city 2 hours away. Apparently thats enough to cause a problem. Once I used the one at the office, everything was OK.
