Recently I tried to post to CL and it asked me to create an account and then wanted a phone number to confirm the account. Is this something new or perhaps I made some type of inadvertent violation? Any one else post recently?

It is normal I am selling a lot of stuff on craigslist and because of the so much spam there, couple of months ago they required everyone to have the phone number. They will send you a textmessage with a code or leave you a voicemail so it is normal. You just have to put the code and you will be all set.

Thanks. You think they may have posted that some where on the front page. If they did I sure missed it :)

No problems,

if you start getting mails like is it still available or for sale don't respond them because that is spam and once they know your mail will start sending you spam.

Better make one email only for craigslist and don't use your mail email.

I've thought about getting another email address but I really don't use CL that much. Probably a good idea any way.
