    And we wonder why an Ad on Craigslist never stays up more than 30 seconds. It's not just losers with nothing better to do but police craigslist....its also other marketers that I think is the biggest issue!

    Hmmm, do we know what section(s) this would be implemented in?

    And what are all the rest of those link-type codes on each new line? I checked out the link on the first line and saw the craigslist flaggers project, but then I tried putting the other lines to (hxxp://www.elance.com/c/rfp/main/), but no such pages exist.

    Sorry for the sloppy URL...heres a shortened one. You will need to be a member of elance to see the entire details. Figure almost everyone already has an account with them as they are a great resource for cheap grunt labor.

    Obviously Elance wasn't to thrilled because they suspended the project and posted the following:

    Error: The project for jobId 15105153 is no longer listed.
    Reason: The project violates the terms of another website.

    I use Elance very often and have seen several strange requests involving CL like this. It is amazing what some idiots will try to oust the competition.

    Yeah that flagging shit drove me away from CL a while back. It seemed like there were a thousand Indians setting back flagging posts around the clock. I couldn't never get any of my posts to stick for any significant amount of time.

    LOL. He would love to get flagged up the ass, as long as it's done with "care"...

    "please flag with care"

    So what exactly did the Elance project say? Did it mention the niche or what kind of ads to flag?

    the elance project is gone.
    i hate cl also. i have posted legitimate listings on there, and they get flagged down.
    honest, i was selling my old digital camera cause i bought a new one, and it got flagged and removed multiple times...wtf!
