    Nonin,

    Great way to approach this. From my experience, many of these platforms can be buggy. Of course, with any free classified system, you get what you pay for. Typically listing processes are slow, not intuitive, and cumbersome. Listings are typically not visually appealing and there are few other ways to stand out from the crowd other than making bold or all caps text in titles or descriptions.

    This blogger gives some candid advice on the drawbacks of using craigslist,

    Good luck with your business!

    Well , time till ad is accepted is the most boring part.

    It would be good to get approved you ad almost instantly

    Thank you Shawn... the link you gave here leads to a really interesting article (at least it is interesting for me).
    About buggy systems.. are there really many established sites that are buggy?
