i usually put an email and not my number on there, email easier to change than phone number.

Raptor,

Check and see if your add posted, not by the link on the posting but by actually going through the Craigslist site. I had a rental property listed on Craigslist and put a link in for pictures. That link somehow grouped me with spammers and as a result Craigslist made me think I was posting an ad, but nobody but me could see it. Craigslist appears tp have spme very sophisticated technology to track a person. I laughe because I use it so little and to be marked a spammer was goofy.
