    Okay, I'm not looking for anything other than ONE Fukin way I can get on craigs using a proxy. Am I the only one who is unable to post or sometimes even get the site up when I use a proxy?
    If I use ghostsurf I can't even get the site up. Online proxies are useless as well, I can sometimes access the site but when it comes time to post an ad, zero. I know a lot of people use tor and I probably should have it but is it the same with tor also?

    Or should I just say fuck it and post using my own ip?

    tor wont work either. i would forget using a proxy and just use your ip address, but dont post more than 10 ads with that ip address a day. and wait a few minutes, 2 minimum, between posting ads.

    if you need to post a lot more than that, use a dial up and disconnect and reconnect periodically

    See? I get different thoughts from different people.
    Okay, thanks for the suggestion gts. I'm just starting with craigs and want to test it out so there's no way i'll be posting more than a few ads/day.

    When I used to post to craigslist I would dial up with aol and use that - disconnected every now and a then to reset the ip address.

    Since I kept AOL for the kids - I had it. But I'd assume even cheap dial up services reset the IP frequently right?

    I just wondered: do you have to have an account to post? I've posted legit stuff on cl before without that.

    if tor works for you, then you are the about the only person it works for.

    tor is pretty well known by many people not to work.

    i know from my experiences with it, i personally NEVER have gotten it to work. every ad posted with it had been ghosted.

    Localhero, try tor if you like, if it works for you, then great. if not, try my suggestion

    I agree gts, and don't most sites know who all the annonymous proxies are anyway by now? And, wondering if you need to use an acct at cl to post or just go without?

    it doesnt really matter too much with having an account or not. that wont really make much of a difference in the amount of ads that will show up, if it does, it will be slight.

    but having an account will allow you to track your ads later so you can easily see which ones have been flagged, expired, etc.

    Is that normal?

    getting flagged is all part of the gamble of doing CL. no one can prevent that because there are always gonna be users that feel it is their duty to flag you as soon as you send them anything with a link in it, even without reading it. shit, some assholes just go around flagging posts for the hell of it for no reason other than they are bored.

    OK, I did some research on this and found these links which may or may not be of help but what the Hell?; I tried!

    I am NOT pimping for any of the software which I found; I am only a reseacher and have NOT evaluated any of the softwarea that I have found.

    I sell on Craigslist regualry and have found that if you do not put your listing in EXACTLY the right place, according to Clist's categories, you will go down in about an hour or two.

    you could be flagged because of someone wanting you for themselves. Whenever I see an ad for a real chick on craigs along with a pic it's usually gone within 2 minutes. Reason? It's not because it was fake, I once contacted one before it was flagged, but because there are guys hoping that they are first and they by flagging down the ad they have no competition and the girl will just focus on them. Hell, I've done it before...

    how did you get that to post? did you modify some settings in tor?

    i have never been able to get a post to make it to CL with tor, they have always been ghosted. not just me, but loads of other people have had the same problem.

    OR

    are you saying that you went to post something else, and CL switched the text to display your ip address and info to the world because you used tor?

    also, if it did work for you, can you try to post another ad with tor in another section? it could also be possible CL only blocks tor posts in known spamming areas.

    it would be great if we could crack this nut to figure out how it would work for some but not other people.

    Public proxies get killed pretty quickly on CL. You need exclusive proxies to do any volume. Dial-up works great also and is much cheaper, just change your IP every 5-8 posts by reconnecting. The same method works well with aircards.
