CL email doesn't work well.
Posted by: space-time

I am browsing CL for some gear and saw this ad. he says:

[cnj.craigslist.org]

"CL email doesn't work well. Anyone interested should directly send to [xxx]@yahoo.com but NOT the CL email in the 'reply' link."

I wonder if this is some type of new scam? I removed the real email address since I don't want to cause the bots to find his email address and spam him, in case he turns out to be a honest seller.

would you reply directly to yahoo as he wants or go throught CL? or just skip these type of ads?

Looks 100% legit to me and I completely sympathize. I H A T E the craigslist anon. I've come up with ways of working around it (as has this seller, although the way he's gone about it is going to be puzzling and suspicious to many) but it's resulted in not knowing who you're dealing with most of the time.

Edit- we need a simple term for what results when you intend to edit a post but instead quote your post and create a new one. Maybe Pinkoos' kid can work on that one.

CL email works just fine for me. I wouldn't worry about a scam. He can't force you to do anything stupid - you have to do that on your own.

You buy and sell things via the craigslist anon, never having real contact information for the party you're dealing with?

Here's what you and hal have in common (besides maybe living in a city where people can be counted on more or less not to be evil.):
You are both in one place a good part of the day and if someone makes arrangements to come by and then disappears, it's not much of an inconvenience for you.

Guess that's me as well. I generally have a pretty decent time. Some flake outs, but the local Ikea I suggest as a meeting spot (not on weekends because its a madhouse), is pretty close to me and right off the captial beltway.
