Craigslist rant

Craigslist is not there for free advertising for your business
49 and counting posts from April 27th - April 30th from the SAME business advertising the same products with various titles.

I'm trying to find fence posts but can't weed through all of their postings to get to them.
AND they've 'tagged' their ads with different words so they'll come up on different searches. This is starting to get frustrating.

Don't worry Craigslist isn't the only place people 'advertise' like that

Can you refine your search and change settings for only certain sellers, like private instead of business? I know you can do that with eBay and miss all the tagged ads.....

Oh my goodness! Yes I refined the search to by owner only and got rid of probably 80% of their ads, but there's another one! Clearance on backsplash, the exact same ad posted over and over again. Pretty sure that has nothing to do with fencing. I don't know whether to laugh or cry haha. I really wish I had time to sit down and flag every single one of their posts.

Can you make your search exclude their phone number or address or something that is common in all of their ads?
