The issue in GetHuman-hchallit's own words
I posted an ad for apartment share, offering one bedroom in my * bedroom apartment.*My current roommate is leaving after almost one year.*Previous roommate stayed * years.*Same room. Always used Craiglist. Room has not changed so I used same photos.*This time since yesterday my post was flagged * times. Never happened before. I usualy get many interested people soon after posting.*I went to the flagging discussion page, where people who claim to be helpers speculate as to why a posting was flagged. *I read the Terms of Use and what's prohibited. My post meets both criteria.*The impression that I got was that some users who are not looking to find a room to share, an apartment to rent, or an item to buy are flagging such postings for no legitimate reason, but to delight in abusing the flagged people further when they they go to the flagging discussion group. *Some flaggers may be doing it with the intent of forcing people to use other competing apps such Roomi, Streeteasy, Letgo... *I saw six usernames posting many snarky "help" advice in these * different categories above, spending a whole lot of time. Do they do this for a living?*If people get flagged, CL should reinstall the flag reason, so that the poster can improve their posting.*So far, I have wasted ** hours of my time trying to figure out the nature if the problem.*I trust CL more than other apps. I would rather not go elsewhere.*My impression is that there are malicious flaggers with ulterior motives (forcing posters to post on other apps) who unfortunately cannot be identified as such since the flagging criteria is open to abuse, no transparency and no consequences.*Can abusive flaggers be flagged, if identified through their IP address?
