Any good suggestion for fucking with craigslist spammer?

This shitbag's been spamming the fuck outta ATL craigslist for months. it's really gotten out of hand>

here's the results of a recent CL search for mopeds.

and that's an old photo

this dude posts about 10-15 ads a day for his BS shitty chinese scooters that are all the same ad, just different title.

it sucks cuz searching CL for moped, more than half of what comes up is his crap. makes it tough to buy and sell bikes.

I tried emailing the guy and calling him to get him to tone it down but he's a stubborn little shit.

after flagging the first 50 or so to no avail (takes 3 or 4 flags from different IP to get it pulled down) I gave up

after another few weeks i couldnt ignore it anymore and have been making numerous fake ads just to fuck with the guy - free canoe etc with his phone #.

any other good ideas?

anyone wanna help me flag them?

send that picture and his info to the IRS

Re: Any good suggestion for fucking with craigslist spammer?

So, I've written a little program that will, given a list of proxy servers and target URL's for CL ads, cycle through all the proxies flagging each ad, but it doesn't seem to be working. I can only assume that some pattern to my http requests is allowing CL to still be able to filter them out as fake. If anyone has any insight in to how CL verifies a flagging as authentic, I could fix it.

i believe there is a time limit between flags so you cant just hammer the ad and have it flagged down in seconds. What is the time limit....that i do not know.

Re: Any good suggestion for fucking with craigslist spammer?

of course it's not his money!!! you can tell just by his earings. any dood who rocks rocks in his ears and takes pictures with lots of money is definately a suburbanerd, who hella just wants to buy an acura..

Re: Any good suggestion for fucking with craigslist spammer?

Hmm interesting. I'll try throwing in like a three minute timeout between each. Testing it on one of Will's buddies ads.

Re: Any good suggestion for fucking with craigslist spammer?

Mars for president.

Re: Any good suggestion for fucking with craigslist spammer?

Will I see you already tried the free adds with his name but you've been doing it wrong. when ever we get a terrible seller we always post for free scrap metal with his number, you have no idea how many calls this will get him, in the past when we have used this you can call the number within 5 minutes of your post and his voicemail will be full

There is an abuse form you can fill out.

In addition to flagging.

Re: Any good suggestion for fucking with craigslist spammer?

He's up for a free canoe in Lafayette.

Re: Any good suggestion for fucking with craigslist spammer?

It's stories like these that make me proud

Re: Any good suggestion for fucking with craigslist spammer?

So you have his cell number?

We had a CL guy no show to buy a guys car on another forum.

So we spent the next 2 weeks making fun tranny hooker ads, free furniture, casual encounters and any other ad we could come up with.

Please post number here so we can then post frame grabs of our ads here :)
