Hey Guys. I've been buying, fixing, and selling road bikes on my spare time for a while now. I usually sell about 3 bikes a month. Just recently I had new competition just down the street from me. I have a main job and just see this as extra saving cash. He on the other hand decided to sell used bikes for a living. He bombards the bike section with his bike ads everyday. He uses posting and flagging software. All of this and the constant overposting is against CL rules.
I usually only post a single ad each day (Unless it's flagged or ghosted), and that usually lasts a week if not sold before. He doesn't like competition and constantly flags any bike ad that I place with the same zip code. He copied my ad layout and the use of HTML special characters to make his ads standout too. Just recently he took it a step further and searched my number and flagged every one of my ads. Pissed the hell out of me.
I'd love to give this guy a taste of his own medicine. I want him to feel how annoying it is, even if it's for a day. I know all his ads will be right back up tomorrow. Any of you guys willing to help flag his ads?
These are all his ads (with bold, lines, stars etc.) http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/bid/
