Co$ being run off Craigslist but hitting classifieds

Postby Radio Paul » Fri Dec 24, 2010 5:24 am

The folks as WWP look like they are kicking the cults butt on Criagslist but I am finding by copying and pasting the cult phone numbers in to google that they are coming up in classified adds. I don't know if this is a new tactic do to the beatdown from WWP or if they have done it all along but it looks like this is another area where people need to report cult abuse of free services. http://www.classifieds.org looks like a big area for them !!!! Lots of cult listings there!!!

Good find, but what can be done? Where do you report?

On the classified.org I think there is a button for reporting but emailing them and explaining what is going on might help too.

I am emailing the craigslist email response option prior to reporting the abuse too. I am stuffing the email with links to LRH going over OT3, his racist remarks Etc.

One of there members listed their mobil phones!

I POOPED MY PANTS! Yes it is creepy. Despite what anyone thinks about AGP's visit to that school one thing is clear, the cult targets kids!

Chris for the Philly listings keeps putting up his cell number on Craigs List

609-504-1049

If you google it it comes back to his personal site: http://www.innovafire.com/site/contact

It goes to his company with his name on it

Christopher Owens
InnovaFire Web Design
2221 37th St.
Pennsauken, NJ 08110

Many of his clients are cult members, just google the names listed on the testimonials + Scientology

THE BEST PART IS ON HIS MAIN PAGE HE HAS """ALIENS""" http://www.innovafire.com/web/

I guess he needs to spam Criagslist because crapy web design does not pay anymore.

I was scanning Phoenix Craiglist and every ad related to Scientology & Dianetics was flagged as spam & the content deleted. Someone in Arizona has been very busy.

Phoenix is easy to flag down with a lot less flags... anon managed to get 100+ posting ids reported on a single TOU violation report last summer, and 30days or so later CL admin wiped out nearly all the cult ads in Phx in one big swoop. they've slowly built their listings back up since then, but it seems as if their still on probation/penalty phase of some sort because as soon as flagging ops & CL raids come into vogue, their ads go bye-bye right quick.

Thus phoenix hasnt gotten back to being as bad as they were with the total number of ads previously ranging between being bigger than atlanta but smaller than houston.

archived copy of the TOU report that gave us an edge in phoenix and few other spots is archived under the "messageboard" area of the ClearClaig MV site thats used for CL flagging raids:

http://clearcraig.scientology-violations.net23.net/

^^note the number of ads indexed under there kinda disagrees with this thread title... more often than not, scilons are still running wild on CL for the most part and there is more flagging/reporting effort needed - especially in boston, atlanta, and houston (los angeles too but there is so much infiltration there from lots of different sources its likely hopeless).

The crazy part is the Philly stuff has been flagged and not coming down.

Philly is brand spanking new on the ClearCraig targeting range. just freshly added over the holiday season, so chris doesnt have his fair share of past flag-down history and it will take a couple hundred flags to kick up initial CL security/filtering measures on his account (at which point hardcore scilon spammers in LA & TX seeemed to be smart enough to switch email addys and start over on a fresh acct after a sizeable flag down hit)

Is there a history of anyone taking the time to email Craigslist directly and explaining what is going on? I read there rules on posting adds and Scientology is violating a number of them. Wondering if they would do a IP ban?

only a couple of TOU violation reports were filed for specific CL locations where worst abuse was happening, as per their instructions/online form. that i know of.

Wikipedia banned the cult for their spam abuse. CraigsList should too. But how to make that happen with a site that big and well known for having very little staff... good luck to those who try.
