Basically, I have been harassed, stalked, threatened, had fake ads posted using my phone number, etc. Here is a link to the hidden forum. https://forums.craigslist.org/?forumID=7768 I want to do something about this, not just for myself, but to prevent this from happening to other innocent people. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I want people to know what is going on behind the scenes at Craigslist (CL) namely forums, and especially hidden forums. This started when an ad for my snow plow business kept getting deleted. I went to the flagging help forum and was immediately called names, sworn at, accused of all kinds of things. I fought back. I did get some good advice which I followed. My ad just kept getting deleted. These discussions and ad postings were over a 3 month period beginning last Nov. At some point someone posted a link to a hidden forum into one of the public forums and told me I should take a look at what's being said about me, so I did. One thing you can count on me is my honesty. So, having said that, I want you to know that I have not been completely innocent, or Christian like, in my replies to those posts. I am somewhat at fault for the recent issues. I have contacted Craigslist many times about this but they have done nothing. All you get is an automatic, generic reply. I believe these people know where I live and I fear for my safety, and that of my family. They have been posting the following about me. Tracked down things I have posted elsewhere on the internet, made rude comments about them, and then posted links to these places. Made threats. Insults, calling me names, etc. Badmouthing my business and my mother. Posted personal information about my business. Stole pics from my web site and posted them. Made very disturbing comments about me in a public forum. They use my real name. There have been 11 fake ads using my phone number posted. I have contacted them, but a few hours later there's another one. Etc. Bottom line is that Craigslist is allowing this, and providing a place for people to stalk others. I have copies of all comments.
