Are you selling tobacco with it? That may be why it got flagged. What kinda description did you put?

I reposted it exactly the way it was except I added that last sentence. I bet it gets flagged again.

That should work, cuz I have seen other hookahs on craigslist. I think they just want to see that last line that you put in ...

Yea, its pretty crazy. We've been flagged on Google Ad Words, Yahoo, and Facebook: No Tobacco Period. Other sites like Ebay are a bit more open, but will still flag you if you arent OVERLY overt about the tobacco nature of the product, which for people like me is a given.

But I guess they are covering their bases. Just a couple years ago there was a huge crack down on all pipes (including hookahs) at head shops, and I know in DC they walk a very thin line while carrying hookah products. Pretty ridiculous, but the ones making the rules don't know that the modern Hookah Culture is very serious about the tobacco. Period.

yeah, i think it's the word "tobacco" - I've bought hookahs off craig's list (from CA) - my two enameled syrains came from CL... but that lister didn't state what they were used for, just what they were and what they came with.

as much as you want to describe what they are supposed to be used for, it's probably the word tobacco that they are flagging (like HoboHookah said)
