Submission + - Craigslist being ruined by flaggers?

jimmer63 writes: After many times buying and selling fine on Craigslist, I've just had my first skirmish with the Craigslist flaggers. Apparently if you piss off one user they can flag your ad for deletion, even of it doesn't violate the Terms of Usage but does "offend" the community. After a bit of research, I realize that I'm not the only one who has had problems. Has anyone else run into these abuses? Does Craigslist even admit a problem? In the wide world of Slashdot, do we have any solutions?
