Craigslist Fundamentals - #7 - Flagging and Emailing Craigslist Posts
Craigslist is a huge repository of information and classified ads for everything from a new bike to a new job. However, the sheer number of ads being posted every day mean that it's up to the craigslist community in part to make sure posts are on-point. Every craigslist listing has the option to flag as inappropriate. And if you find a post you know a friend will be interested in, it's easy to email a craigslist post too.
Craigslist Fundamentals - #9 - Craigslist Discussion Forums The discussion forums on Craigslist are great place to ask questions of the Craiglist community.

And these are all conversations going on about growing tomatoes indoors. You can then reply to the post, e-mail it to a friend, rate it or flag it if it’s inappropriate. In order to reply your post to the forums, you must be logged in to your Craigslist account then you can create a handle which is how you will be known in the forums. Usually people pick a nickname of some sort. So just enter it in, retype it. Decide whether or not you want your e-mail displayed and you can enter in your own blog or website URL, as well as a note about yourself. This is so that when people click on your name in the forums, they know a little bit about you. Then click on Submit. Something you should know before posting something to the forums; make sure whatever discussion you want to start doesn’t already exist so do a search first. And if it does exist like this, you can simply add on to it by replying. When you’re ready to post something, click on the category you wish you post on and compose a new thread. Entering a title, what you want to discuss and then the area. You can preview it, go back and edit it and decide to be e-mailed when someone replies to the thread.
