    I dont think theres much you could do with all the asswipes on CL that are flag happy.These past few days my ads were flagged almost instanlty.

    I cant believe at this day and age,the retarded CL team could not come up with a better solution than this 90's style flagging system where a bunch of rednecks decide which ads should stay up.

    As for tips,i would say try not to make your ads too loud and try not to make them look like ads.(if this makes sense) and also if you post in the smaller cities, they usually stay up longer.Fresh emails,accounts,and IP's help too.

    It depends on what you are doing. If it's ewhore, then make a real looking post with a normal picture that looks like it wasn't professionally done. Send them to random email accounts and forward all them to one. DONT REPLY!!!!!!! Just save the mails and wait a week for your first response! This way you get maximum coverage. I get at least 200 email addresses from each ad that I post! Then, when each one has matured one week, extract the emails and put them in your main mailing campaign. This way you can hit your target again and again. About 90% of my posts stay up a full week.

    If I am marketing a product, I offer a similar used item for dirt cheap in the target area. Same tactic, don't respond, then hit em hard after 1 week.

    I have about 50-60 diffrent email accts., no cl accts, I use dsl to change my ip's, and do 5-7 ads per email acct. and it seems to be working. I posted about 40 ads yesterday and they all are running. Plus I changed the ad body by using micro. word to cut and paste to ad, if they are text ads. I forward all emails to one email acct.. Thats how I seem to be getting them to stick.

    like many techniques mentioned here such as fresh ip's, emails.
    Also what helps me is to actualy go into the section I'm going to post and take a look at the posts that are actualy up, and sort of build up a template out of them, hope this helps :).
