    Re: Project: ClearCraig

    .Net has a similar problem, but you can use the dotfuscator to obfuscate some of the code, and lock the rest in compiled libraries. This results in something that can't be so easily decompiled. If someone has the know-how to decompile it, edit it enough to recompile it, they probably have the know how to make an app like this. So that's good enough security for me.

    I *really* don't want to add another script kiddie tool out there. This coupled with a bot net (btw, does anyone have one? That would be pretty sweet!) would allow them to remove any ad or ads from craigslist that they wanted to.

    Although I'm not 100% sure, I think that java classes you run are downloaded to your comp (IE temp files, java tmp, etc). Thus the source is there for decompiling.

    Not sure what this is going to accomplish. Assuming CL has a fixed amount of flags needed to remove a post, the posts should be disappearing almost all at once. I have ran this app *a lot*. I'm beginning to believe that you need to flag from a unique IP address, that hasn't flagged before, for CL to record the flag. Not too easy for me since I'm on cable.

    Running the app for 500+ posts takes maybe an extra 2 mins when you're running against 300+. The problem isn't the number of posts, it's the number of people running the app. P.S. run the app.

    I imagine it's saying that it can't find the Dat file. Post the error message exactly :eek: If it is a Dat file issue, make sure the dat file and the exe are in the same directory.

    Open the Dat file with notepad to edit it.

    What am I suppose to be editing? I suck at this.

    Re: Project: ClearCraig

    Aight, I'm guessing you haven't even unzipped it yet. You need to download winrar or another file compression app to unzip the files into a directory. Once you see a .exe file and a .dat file, you'll know you're on the right track. Then, you can edit the dat file in notepad and update it to what I have in the OP.

    Re: Project: ClearCraig

    It seems we aren't getting anywhere. The number just fluctuates, like it would with expiring ads. How many people do we have flagging regularly? I think some sort of spam prevention feature might be coming into play and preventing our flags from counting.

    Edit: Just flagged 555 entries after updating my DAT.

    Re: Project: ClearCraig

    I've considered this. I've been watching pretty closely I we may have been responsible for a few solo ads getting flagged down, but that's hard to say. Some ads are still around since I first launched this. So I'm thinking either A) We don't have enough people, or B) the flags aren't getting through. Hard for me to figure out as I don't know how many people are running this app.

    I have some testing to do it would seem. I'm busy this weekend, but I'll tinker with some ideas soon.

    . . . because ATLnons are JUST THAT GOOD.

    Okay, maybe it's because the Atlanta Scienos don't know crap about Craigslist. They only recently got their Ideal Org website off of a free web hosting service when we taunted them about it.

    determu:

    What I really mean is, is there somewhere I can go with this information to get some results?

    Can this be used as leverage with Craig, or even a medical advisory board? (Edit -along the lines of Kevin Trudeau, Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You to Know About)

  23. Re: Project: ClearCraig

    I found some suspicious ads on craigslist while using the phone numbers for orgs. They say nothing about Scientology or Dianetics, but do talk about classes, not needing psychiatry, 'are you depressed?' and so on.
    What is the key to happy, honest relationship?
    How to help an ill person get better
    Is it hard for you to let go?
    How stressed are you?
    Group for Depression, Anxiety and Stress

    These don't have the phone numbers of any orgs, just someone named Julie who gives (408) 512-9053 or jewel95131@gmail.com , as contacts. Tried looking up the phone # which is a cell phone in San Jose. I have to go get my bus.
    Can someone find out more, maybe contact her? Don't tell her who you are, of course, but is this connected to scienfraudery or what?

    Re: Project: ClearCraig

    Yes they are Scilon ads

  25. Re: Project: ClearCraig

    ^ They certainly read like scilon ads.
    Will OP add (408) 512-9053 to sfbay list, or is it already too long? It might get cumbersome if more scilons put ads up with their own phone numbers.

    483 today.


    SRG, have you confirmed whether or not the flagging system is ip sensitive? I've also had some greyhats tell me that CL discounts flags that come from ips outside of that geographical area. (I believe this to be complete bullshit, frankly, but I've been wrong b4.)

    If you haven't confirmed, I could test this against a one or two "fresh" ads.

    Re: Project: ClearCraig

    Just wanted to check in to report that Craigslist may have responded to my complaint emails. Toronto (792 1889) had zillions of current ads, but as of today there are only three. Win?

    Edit - never mind, they are still there. They were just hiding.
  31. crockhat Member

    Re: Project: ClearCraig

    Yup, that's the problem, and I'm sure some kiddies would abuse it if you released it, shame.

    Correct.

    Another limitation is that by default, Java applets on web pages can only connect to the server they were originally downloaded from. You can sign Java applets to give them extra abilities, however, so that's prolly possible.
    Much the same for flash.

    The Victoria (Vancouver Island) Craigslist is getting spammed mercilessly. You can easily find their ads on vancouver.en.craigslist.ca or victoria.en.craigslist.ca by searching for

    "(250) 220 3772" or "www.island-scientology.net"

    Thus far the ads are all cookie-cutter, for example:

    Re: Project: ClearCraig

    I'm having trouble breathing too because I'm ROFLMAO.

    I think what the scilons are trying to do is get us to defend an image they believe Anonymous has by deliberately associating there idea of our image with themselves.

    It's all about them attacking and getting us to defend; while we're busy defending our image we theoretically have less resources to attack them.

    We're suppose to spend time going, noooo &quot;V for Vendetta&quot; is all about Anonymous not scientology. In fact we don't give a toss and just carry on explaining that the organisation calling itself the church of scientology is all about screwing people for money.

    Re: Project: ClearCraig

    Hate to burst your bubble, but this doesn't seem to be doing *anything*. I think your top priority should be figuring out the IP limits. I'd strongly recommend creating a version that lags votes considerably behind one another - flagging 463 posts in 2 minutes makes it kind of obvious you're not doing this by hand. If you created a program that could run in the background, I'm sure there are people willing to run it 24/7 @ 2 flags/min.
  38. Belladonna Member

    Re: Project: ClearCraig

    I've been doing it by hand, once a day - don't know how many other people are also. I've also been sending in complaints about the outrageous abuses but it doesn't seem to be getting any response. Which doesn't make sense to me at all, when you consider the rules and CraigsList culture.
  39. Anonymous Member

    Re: Project: ClearCraig

    Perhaps we need to start some craigslist ads bashing craigslist for allowing this kind of abuse to go on. I just flagged 577 posts - 71 in LA, 88 in Toronto, and 178 in Sacramento. There was a post by a craigslist community member bashing the Toronto scilon poster in the Toronto craigslist a few months ago - I think we need to follow his lead, en masse.

    But OMG. Why isn't Craigslist dealing with this problem?
