    I'm just trying to sell a few electronics & computers on craigslist, but for some reason i keep getting ghost! I've used my own Unique I.P. no proxies or anything, a new account and email, and i'm not even spamming, i was merely trying to post only 2 post, and none of them went live. I remember 2 years ago selling stuff on craigslist was much more simple, do you guys got any advice for a guy that is trying to sell some stuff he doesn't want? I'm not trying to make a profit or run a business or anything, just trying to get a few posts up so i can get rid of my electronics and computers. I only have like 30 systems i'm trying to sell, and after that i don't need craigslist anymore. But none of my ads can go live its ridiculous! No way am i going to invest in much money for the cl bots or hire somebody just to sell 30 units , might as well go to the swap meet and sell them or a pawnshop if i have to fork over money to use craigslist. Can you guys give advice to people that only want to use craigslist casually (here and there) and not for business purposes? Or maybe use alternatives sites like ebay or amazon to sell my stuff? I dont like ebay and amazon because i'm scare of getting paypal scammer complain to get their money back after i send them my stuff. Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

    i tried to get 1 post up and that didn't even work, now i got like 6 posts that are all green showing on my account, but none of it went live. Then i made a quick ad with 2 sentence only and it went through. Could it be that you gotta keep your ads short?
