I had an ad removed by craigslist. I think I know why it was removed, but
trying to find out is pure dee pain in the ass complicated. They just have
a circuitous series of screens and chat forums, and nothing to just really
tell you flat out.
Anybody can flag a craigslist ad. If you think it meets all the rules just
Craig's List ad seen recently
Slightly Used Small Goat Herd.
Free to good home.
You must TAKE them all.
Please call between 11:00 pm and 4:00 am.
I'm pretty sure guys who "find excellent deals" (and want to buy the
thing THEMSELVES) flag posts, too. plus guys selling similar items, who
want to 'limit the competition'. flagging on craigslist is pretty much
NOT a 'good thing' generally...
and, far as I know, there's NO way to EVER find out who 'flagged' (or
cancelled) your post "for" you (by flagging it), or why...

That sucks. How the hell are you going to make changes and avoid problems
if they don't tell you why. I think the manager I am firing may have sent
in some flags to get it taken off. But it won't do him any good.
They don't tell you because "they" don't know. A bunch of people decide to flag
because they don't like some aspect of the ad. Ususlly, because of some very
obvious TOU violations, or because of overposting. I takes more than a few flags
to remove a posting, and they claim to regester only one flag per user.
