    Hi all,

    Was just reviewing some Craigslist topics (i did a search) and i see that CL topic is taboo?

    Why?

    Because of issues with Craiglist and other classifieds I believe. And also because there were many.. childish and stupid posts there before it got removed.

    Also, because CL is one of the BEST places to make money online, if monetized properly....you can make a killing there....However, stupid posts and stupid people aren't the only reason why CL's section was removed...There are methods members of this forum are using that they want to keep to themselves for obvious reasons...not to mention it would be bad for this forum to end up in the middle of Craigslist/Random other classified litigation because of something that was shared here....

    thanks guys.

    but...that's not what i'm seeing.

    If you do a search on CL (as topic)...you see that people were charging to use PVA's or charge for services related to CL and it appears they were in the "makin money" section.

    I'm wondering why they were banned...or what rule violation was broken?

    HERE are a couple of posts regarding the SUBJECT

    Anything resulting in a troll magnet should surely be banned.

    Rule of thumb on this site, OP, is that if it is banned it is banned.

    Typically conversations as to why are discouraged here.

    That is the actual answer. Just find another way to earn or get Jr. VIP. I think there is a CL section there. Also dont ask too much about why they were banned as long as it doesn't involve you.

    Because it makes crazy money very easily (given one is nut dumb) and the VIP would rather not share the methods with noobs that might ruin them ! Let's say this is what i wanted to say! (i actually had other words on my mind...i never ever ever applaud usage of the process of "i use my power to shut you up!"...feels like damn Russia and my own country!)

    Because they have P&C on retainer and they sue the shit out of people, if you want to know the real reason. Feel free to keep making up conspiracy theories however.

    We used to have a CL section years ago but it has been removed. Continuing to pursue this subject is a good way to lose your account.

    They had P&C on retainer long before the section was moved, so nice try. It was moved due to whinny ass people crying about things getting harder because of people outing methods. Wrangler the spy from cl and the 2 numbers sellers stirring up shit all the time didn't help any either.

    Basically the forum has become large enough and makes enough money that it doesn't need sections that bring any kind of legal problems. Sadly those are also the sections and methods that make the most money.

    It was horrible before the change. Granted I haven't even used CL (aside for buying cars, selling outdated electronics, etc. legit style) in at least 3 years but the forum went downhill rapidly. The front page was always full of 15 threads of people too lazy to use search to find the same answers day in and day out along with people that didn't even use CL and had no clue linking to other people's ads asking "how'd this guy do that" which the CL spies would quickly patch sneaky exploits that people were purposely using at small volume to avoid patches, etc. And this is just the quality not to mention the legal shitstorm that was coming down on others including individual high volume spammers and CL automation software devs with seized websites and both criminal and civil charges.

    Anyways it had just gotten bad and was a nightmare trying to find or share anything half way decent in there, was a big controversy at the time but I think history has judged that it was in fact the right call.

    PS Hey Bass (posted Greg initially but now my faulty memory thinks that's wrong?), probably been 6 months since I found myself in the same thread as you man, used to be a couple times a day! :)

    I think the litigation assertion is bullshit.
    Lots of people try to gain social credibility by spreading FUD over lawyers, cops, etc... and it's almost always bullshit.
    It scares the idiots and the guilty.
    I resent it because it encourages stupidity among the masses and blind obedience to an authority they cannot understand because so many people have lied and misrepresented the nature of that authority that people feel it's best to simply do whatever feels most subservient in an effort to stay safe, out of trouble, jail, etc.... and for what? So some insignificant pin-head can achieve some kind of private and masturbatory gratification because they've scared people into playing it safe and not taking risks, when risks are the only way to achieve reward? Keeping people stupid, compliant and dependent; that's what these FUD spreaders do, and I hate them for it.

    And the other reaction is to then become unnecessarily hostile as a means of overcompensating for the FUD, which then creates the very reality that started out as a small-minded lie by a small-minded idiot.

    So, those that trot out these retarded notions that discussions about how to spam craigslist cannot happen on a forum because that fat faggot will hire lawyers and sue blackhat world and maybe those having the conversation in order to scare the idiots and achieve an erection ought to go back to massaging their prostate with a can of Crisco and the turkey baster, and stay the fuck out of Public discourse.

    No point in even posting on CL if you can't do quantity...Besides fighting CL and it's dreadful weekly changes, you have to fight flagging between your competition....My recommendation is stick to long-term projects and ranking them successfully, it's really hard to fail if you put in the effort, while on CL, even during success you seem to experience failure(save your health).
