Ya I just realized it was flagged...

I hadn't used craigslist before but I dont see any rules broken. Nor is there a dispute area or anything for the flagging.

I wouldn't put out a stolen bike craigslist ad. Not alot of people read those much less remember all of them. If you do put it on there you can guarentee that it is less likely to be found ON craigslist, which is where ALOT of stolen is found all the time.

There has been an ad for a stolen F4i on craigslist for awhile, Wonder why it hasn't been flagged?

Uhhh, I posted a $500 reward thread on craigslist for my bike when it was stolen. It stayed up for like 2 months or longer and I got about 2 dozen calls from people saying "I JUST SAW A BIKE THAT LOOKED JUST LIKE YOURS AT XYZ LOCATION!!!"

I went, and it was either not my bike or not even close to looking like my bike.

I don't see why a stolen item thread would be removed, it's not against the TOS.

nope but anyone can flag it, including the people that stole it.

I posted in the "for sale" section and in the 'wanted' section.

Dunno if I should do it again. Doesn't tell me who is flagging it.

i think you should just let them slip up and make a mistake, having posts looking for it would make them more wary

I did; for sale section for motorcycles/scooters. Email stating it was removed didn't say why.

So I reposted it in 'wanted section' and it was removed even quicker, about 6 hours later vs a day. mmm....

Sorry for the loss. I'll be looking in the Spring area.

If need be I'd be more than happy to go out in person to check out some of these guys that wont post pics if you set up meeting on my days off. (4on4off) Seriously it's not an idle offer let me know!
