I'm no longer able to post ads on Craigslist

Hi experts. Not sure if anyone here can help or give me some tips but thought I would try. I posted an ad a day ago and after 30 hours it got taken down. I tried posting it again and it says it posted but I search for it and it's not there. Any tips on how to go around that?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You may have been banned for bad content?
Check you have not had identity theft or a virus / malware.
Use your installed antivirus software to scan, also consider free online scanning.
If you cannot find any reason then I suggest you create a new Craigslist account.

 Free Antivirus Editions:

Either of these three can be considered as the best choice.

Keep trying.  It almost has to be a manual action against your account, so only someone from Craigslist will be able to resolve it.

Barron NelNetwork Engineer Level IICommented:
You Have Possibly Been Ghosted by Craigslist

Ghosting is the practice that when your ads appear to have posted successfully, Craigslist actually hides these ads from users.  These ads are not searchable nor do they appear on the site. Essentially, Craigslist is tricking you into believing your ads are posted when they are not. These hidden ads, we refer to them as being “ghosted”.
