Flag and Remove Spam Post
Specifically for Craigslist. Automatically highlights / hides spam/unwanted/or specifically wanted post when you navigate to the list of postings. It reads all of the posts from the listings page and applies highlighting / hiding to let you know if the post contains any words that were marked as "liked" or "banned" words. Hides/Marks post with certain keywords (ie (at)g_m_a_i_l), duplicated pictures, large number of line-breaks with a different post at the very bottom of the page. Add keywords to the banned list by highlighting and right clicking on them and select "Add as banned text" from your context menu. Right click on a picture and add that to the banned list as well. Can add "liked" words as well and post with those keywords are highlighted in green. FAQ: Can you see all the post affected by this extension: Yes, there is a show/hide button at the top of the listings. It remembers your preference, so you don't have to constantly click it. It also highlights the "bad" post in red so you can distinguish them. This extension previously flagged the post, why did you change its behavior? I don't want people abusing the ease of flagging and flag 100's of post that are legit but they just don't agree with. This way if you don't want to see a post type you can easily hide it while allowing other users the ability to still see the post. Also I don't want spammers to know when their post are being hidden. They are constantly changing their strategies to beat craigslist spam filters, well this way they don't get a notice that it was detected.
- (2017-05-11) Jesse Garcia: Saw a post on craigslist advertising it saying it'll get rid of spam posts, and it sure does! Highlight a word most spam posts use, right click, and click on "Add 'word' As Banned Text" and then every post with that word gets marked as spam and is hidden automatically. Nice tool, and to the developer, nicely done.
