Based on my experiences with the (terrible) Craigslist spam ghosting
algo, attempting to get help for that over the random junk I was
legitimately trying to sell which got me ghosted, and then doing a lot
of research on similar problems had by other users...
...which led me to reading about Craigslist's history of "litigation
over innovation" and the (inevitable and correct) complaining about
how terrible every /other/ part of the site is...
...and the attempts to talk to Craigslist about such problems by users
and litigation targets, all lead me to believe that attempting to
communicate with Craigslist in any way is like talking to a
particularly recalcitrant wall. They do not care. Sadly their US
monopoly position makes it easy for them to act like bad netizens, and
they do. Since the classified market is basically free under them,
they're like the Windows monopoly. Nobody else can get a fair shake
to take them down, even though a lot of people dream of it.
Best of luck. :(
