Craigslist blocked?


New member
So I am new to this site, AND was new to Craigslist. I never posted anything, but responded via email to a few items for sale, and a few jobs in my town. I dont even HAVE a craigslist account, I just replied to a few things, but I went online today and got this message on my computer...This IP has been automatically blocked.
If you have questions, please email:

Not sure why because, like I said, I never registered, or posted anything, or was rude to anyone. Does anyone have any ideas? Or is it just my luck?

My best guess would be since you don't have an account with Craigslist, they may have software that identified you as a spammer. You may have replied to too many ads in too short of a time period without an account.

I've never heard of them blocking anyone. Sounds like spam to me. Check your computer for a virus or maiware.

usually that stuff is on . it is just like craigs but less rules . things like weapons are allowed.

never heard of being blocked on craigs. I would be suspicious of the link. google or bing the link first and see what you get.
