In the past, I remember posting "help wanted" ads which cost money. I never tried out posting a free ad on Craigslist. Maybe I'll try it out soon!

If I ran across something like this on Craigslist, I'd think it was spam and wouldn't click on it.

If a lot of people start promoting lenses and leaves like that, do you think Craigslist would crack down on it pretty fast?
