    I always see people going crazy about getting gmail accounts for their CL adventures.

    I have been using the following trick for a long time now and it works 100 in CL to both hotlink my ad to my email address and to receive emails from a ton of CL people to 1 email address.

    I just tell them to click the tiny url link on the ad so the email can come to my phone since my work blocks craigslist. ;)

    Steps are easy:

    1. Go to tiny url
    http://************************/

    2. "cloak" your email address as such: mailto:[email protected]

    3. Now your email address is a tiny url link like so: http://************************/kt6pvc
