What happens when you "flag" a CL ad?

I have flagged a couple of lowball car ads but nothing seems to happen. Nothing that I can see anyway.

If enough people flag it then it goes away.

If it is offensive (pRon) than an administrator will take it down.

For at least 5 years I'd say, probably much longer, the flagging system has been completely automated. Admins are scarce and will only get involved if there's an abuse complaint or if people bring an issue to one of the help forums.

It's basically the same as "vote to remove."

There's one guy that I flag EVERY DAY and nothing happens: the same ad every single day, in the wrong category!

Hmmm . . . now that you mention it it looks like someone changed the banner at the top too. Didn't it used to be "dealtime" or something like that?

I've flagged some car listings if they're one of those scams where they say they're in another state. Those CL takes down pretty fast since they specifically ban them. I've also flagged when dealers run car ads under the "by owner" category. That one really ticks me off.

There's nobody minding the store, i.e. there's not a human reviewing these and saying "oh, that's banned."
There's a basic algorythm that determines how many flags it takes to disappear a post, with other factors including keywords found in it, flag history of the poster, and the category. Occasionally posters report problems with seeming innocuous posts repeatedly being flagged down before they even appear.
