    Craigslist has blocked me!

    I swear I have been behaving!

    It was late one night and like usual I wander off on the internet and go shopping. So I was on Craigslist checking my usual searches (Featherweight and Pfaff machines, clawfoot swivel chairs, and matchbooks) and found a couple of good items.

    Next morning I go to check out my finds again, decide if I REALLY need the item and want to buy, when I get not the craigslist website but one saying 'this IP has been automatically blocked' and an email to ask questions. So I emailed them. No response. It's been days.

    What gives?

    Try accessing Craigslist from your phone. It will have a different IP address (unless you let your phone use your home WiFi). Let us know if this works!

        I got blackballed off a forum this past week for speaking the truth. Can't say I don't miss it. Little do they know I made up a fake name and can still go on there, but I have only done that the first day to see what they were saying!

          I have noticed people seldom love you for speaking the truth on forums. I do it anyway.

            I wonder if someone stole your identity or if someone is spamming you with saying that you are blocked.

              Some prefer to live in a everything is beautiful world. I am sure we all would. But, I prefer to just speak (respectfully) honest and open and not have to worry whose toes I am stepping on. Forums mostly prefer the beautiful world.

                It's entirely possible it has nothing to do with you and your actions. I had a similar experience a couple of years ago, I tried to email my employer and discovered that one of the malware/spyware/antivirus software programs she uses also has a blacklist, and somehow my ISP got on the blacklist. Nothing I could do other than report it, I had to wait for the blacklist to update and remove my ISP.

                  We all know how much trouble I have gotten into for speaking the truth, lol. Trouble is my middle name.

                    Did you shut down everything and start over? I'm having trouble with blogs, Pinterest ect were the pictures don't show up. They show but dissapear in an instant. Driving me nuts!

                          I've never been banned from any website I joined, LOL. I've left of my own free will. Military Wives sites are the roughest. But, even there I can hold my own. LOL.

                          I'm curious as to what Craigslist thinks you have done. Are you stalking? LOL

                            I don't know what I've done. I wasn't posting anything, just looking at the normal things to buy - sewing machines and furniture.

                            I'm going to release my IP and get a new one.

                              Well I did it and it worked. Craigslist likes me again

                              As for the tangents.... I almost got kicked off a forum one time. I have really long hair, and there is a great forum called Long Hair Community, so I joined it. But everyone thought I was a long hair hater, and I couldn't understand why. They kept badgering me for proof and asking all sorts of questions. Finally someone explained the problem - it was my forum name, snippet. They thought I was a barber/beautician infiltrating the forum and trying to get people to cut their hair.

                              I have used snippet as my forum name for ages. It's gender-less and means something to me. I didn't think it would make them hate me.
