Craigslist.org CONDONES SKOWHEGAN SCAM & "Ghost Writer Pretending to be Craig Newmark": Part 9

In my many attempts to bring the scam artist in Skowhegan ME to the attention of the staff at Craigslist.org, I tried posting complaints in several different areas on their forums.

Following is a reply, to a post I made in the "Non-profits" forum. In it, someone states that Craig is "too busy" to answer his own mails and that a staff member does this. I had the feeling that this was true. Now, I have it in writing.

post 106495064 is located in thread 5618 of nonprofits forum mne I flag, write CL, Skowhegan scam continues. What < SpamAnnoysMe > 11/01/08 07:55 : . . I wrote to founder Craig Newmark through his < SpamAnnoysMe > 11/01/08 12:41 : . . : . . you might also try < spamspamgoaway > 11/02/08 19:10 link

reply to this post email it rate flag
you might also try < spamspamgoaway > 11/02 19:10:37 the craigslist official scam report check off in the form located here: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/cgi-bin/emailForm.cgi also try flag help forum and feedback forum. the peanut gallery in FeFo has good advice some times. Craig himself is very busy and almost never answers e-mail. CL always has a staff person watching feedback forum. staff is not likely to answer but sometimes they take action. failing that, there is a secret forum devoted to flagging off egregious spammers. find it at http://hudsonvalley.craigslist.org/forums/?forumID=5196 http://maine.craigslist.org/forums/?ID=106598612

CL is flooded with spam and all kinds of businesses from real estate, plumbing, contracting, etc. They do nothing about spam. they just want lots of ads and don't care how much junk is on there to sift through.
