Dictatorial Craigslist Deletes want add for reloading equipment

Dictatorial Craigslist Deletes want add for reloading equipment

I may not be very coherent right now, as I am fit to be tied,  maybe I  should wait until after my adrenalin drops to less than 50% of my blood volume.  
I recently posted an add on Craigslist looking for reloading equipment for my church. (Yes ,imagine that!) It was not 24 hours later that I received an email telling me that the add had been flagged and deleted.
I then dutifully followed the link to  the terms of service agreement with Craigslist to try and determine what I figured was some  absurd leftist policy that I had violated.  It was so verbose that I  choose not to look for the needle in the haystack and went to the other  link to what was called the "feed back forum" to give them a piece of my agitated mind.
I  readily admit I was not tactful, nor reserved but I was  definitely not grossly overboard either. I think  my post  went something like:  "I am so tired of  you mentally deranged moron leftist blah blah blah...."  
Within 5 minutes  I was  gang banged by a tribe of incoherent  leftists from of all places San Francisco. It was too late  for a change of venue. :-)  
I  soon discovered that the insane leftists at Craigslist consider reloading equipment an accessory for a weapon.   And that is a no no there. At the same time these mentally ill people inexplicably do not consider a car a weapon or an air pump an accessory for this weapon.  They do not use the single brain cell that they collectively (pun intended)  posses, to realize that   a weapon is a use of an item not an inherent property of anything. In reality all golf clubs and baseball bats could be weapons and golf balls, golf carts, baseballs, and batting gloves could be weapon accessories and should also be banned from the site also.
But leftists as evidenced by our present government are not sane nor rational. They have only an agenda with the end justifying  the means.   The only semi rational argument that was  made was that it was a private site and they could make any rules that they desired - to which I responded:   "I fully realise this is a private site. Listen now and wake up that lone brain cell that you have. You must also realise that I have  a right to voice my opposition to this policy.  Just because the site is private does not mean that I have to be silent.  When they start being consistent and banning the weapons of golf clubs  and the weapon accessory of golf balls -  only then  will I  concede and be silent."  
And. like true leftists  when they saw that they could not win the argument on logic they flagged my feedback forum arguements  against the unfair flagging and deletion  of my original add until the leftists moderators  suspended my account.   
I am not sure what policy I broke by trying to make a case for the misapplication of their rules concerning my original post.   But I guess the type of people that can read "shall not be infringed" and tell us that this means that they can do  any damn  thing that they desire, are not constrained by any type of logic or sanity.  
I think we can all agree that anti-inalienable right leftists   have some soft of  mental disorder. .   It's not Halloween yet but I  am wondering if anyone out there has any ideas about creatively and effectively driving this point home to CraigsList?

There are a few gun lists that allow for the posting of private firearms sales but they have strict membership policies and likely need to know who you are before they allow you to post on their site. The Federal and Local governments are the reason. Just look at what happened to Craigslist with 'Happy Ending Massages'. 
Government is everywhere and threatening everyone with everything. Buuuuut, this leaves a very large void to be filled.
If a 'Wikileaks' type site were to target gun enthusiasts and precious metal traders and sex workers/patrons with a product that would allow for a free market to flourish,... well then we'd see the true colors of "The Man" in an all out attempt to curtail voluntary contracting and trade between consenting adults... again.
Sooooo, the answer to your problem is to fill the need, but you better be ready to do battle or be able to avoid the battle. This is why I'm so excited about the future of communications that will have off planet servers in orbit that can be accessed by anyone like the old BBS (Bulliten Board Services) were.
Yep, there is a need, so expect a solution. Look for that and promote it, or make it happen yourself. Wasting time on trying to get a service like Craigslist to take on 'The Man' is better spent doing some research looking for an alternative.

Ok whatever. Oyate wants you all to know that John Stuart, activist and scholar is on trial for his life right in Phoenix Arizona and Oyate also wants you to know that editors of FP are not only ignoring this issue, they refuse to re-enable Oyate's account so a brother can speak on behalf of another brother.

Oyate also wishes editors and publishers to know that John Stuart has come up with the most effective plan to save American homeowners from fraudulent foreclosures and that John Stuart is a real man.

Oyate goes so far as to imply that the editors and publishers of Freedoms Phoenix are pussy faggots for not standing up for one of their own.

His name is John Chester Stuart and he was a friend and counselor to the late Aaron Russo. So anybody in Phoenix that claims they knew Aaron and helped with the message, this is not true. Aaron Russo relied upon John C. Stuart for input.

And now it's fashionable for everybody to say they knew Aaron back in the day. Well guess what? I was Aaron Russo's National Director Of Technology. AND THAT'S ENOUGH SHINY BADGE TO STUFF IN OUR FACE AND MAKE YOU CHOKE ON IT. And to this day you brag about being MC at R3VOLUTION March and it's me that put you up there. Whatever, you owe me nothing. It was me that put you up there next to Gary. Because I knew that Gary needed that annointment, that confirmation and not you, you grand-standing closet authoritarian. And I don't give a shit if you say it was Ray Powell who needs our help right now, which you aren't giving or anybody else you choose, I'm Oyate, I don't give a shit.

Thing is you pretend to be this or that and I know the truth. Remember that Ernie? We know the truth? Well the truth is you climbed up on some people's backs and now they need help and you ain't giving it to them.

What you owe, you motherfuckers, is some face to John Chester Stuart. Because he and we were fighting before you little pissants were trying to get radio time on XM looser sats. And back in the day, we used to take care of each other. EACH OTHER. And a bro was a bro.

And each and every one of you are leaving John C. Stuart out to dry.

Often when I counsel with Gary I say "what would Aaron do?" Often we both say ho man, maybe a lot more. Me and Gary have the love of the man who was a step better than us. You guys are showing us a step beneath us. And you are supposed to be the leaders and you, Ernie, invoke Aaron all the time. So it's time to step up, it's not too late.
