Alan, I was thinking that also. He seems like one of the people who would do that. I still have his phone number, but not his email.

I would post. Link to my newest ad, but can't from my phone. If you look under hudson valley the ad is "Loader Wanted" I think. I posted it this morning, let's see how long this one lasts.

Ryan, I was thinking about this...
You said ever since you looked at that loader, you ad has been getting flagged? Wasn't that guy some kind of whack-a-do or something? I wonder if that's who is flagging it, still hoping you'll buy his or even just out of spite?


This would be my thought as well !

He may only want to "allow" you ONE loader option. There are those type of people out there.

I have had wanted ads flagged too. I thought my wife was doing it (still cant prove she wasnt).
Save a copy of the ad in a text file and just cut and paste for the new one.
One benifit to being flagged is you get to top post

After each ad was flagged I changed it a little. After 3 days, you can renew your ad so it is on top.

Ad looks fine right now.

I'd qualify your ad as a "front end loader" because loader may be a type of washing machine or whatever. The ad is very short... so short that someone may think it's a spammer. Add a little detail. Say that you have a power king that you want to adapt it to. Something to make it look real.

And... if someone sent you a prank response to your ad... at about 2:05 eastern, today.... It wasn't me.

Guys! I stuck a deal for a machine that should suit my needs, and then some! I posted the picture he sent me below. Do you think I made a good deal? For $100?

EDIT: The picture is not attaching correctly, I can't post it.

Can't see the pic yet, but for $100? Yeah, sounds like a good deal.
