spam prevention – How to block a seller on Craigslist?


This single user currently has 543 postings, all substantially the same 2 ads.

They use keyword spam in the ad body to appear in substantially every Craigslist search I perform.

How can I block or mute a Craigslist user so that I never see another one of their ads?

If it can’t be done via a CL account setting, how can I do so via an ad-blocker program?


I’m aware of other potential solutions to improve my search:

  • Filter “by Owner” so that I do not see any dealer results.
  • Add -cargo or other similar negative search terms.
  • Flag the ads by this user.

But this question is about blocking a seller entirely.
