don't you hate it when you are trying to look for a specific car?

i'm trying to find cheap zx2s and miatas in the area for some classmates of mine, but these dickheads on craigslist keep tagging everything under the sun in their vehicle sales, including zx2s. it's fucking frustrating! i immediately disregard all ads i see that people do that shit on...even the ones for zx2s. fuck 'em.

agree absolutely.

Nothing against smart tagging, but it should be directly related to the object for sale. 5 or 6 tags tops.

Perfect example for appropriate tags (although this one has 10) out of an ad for a Subaru Legacy GT:


Tags: sportwagen, sportwagon, wagon, awd, turbo, turbocharged, fast, stick, manual, 5M

The only one I don't like is "Fast".

oh, and sorry about the language up top. i figured i'd give the impression from the get go that this is a rant thread...that way people don't get yelled at for derailment for ranting later on. let this be a place to point out how idiotic this tactic is while keeping it outside of anyone's for sale thread.

If it helps, when I was looking for my car I used crazedlist.org

http://www.crazedlist.org/

You have to use Firefox but it lets you search multiple CL's at once.

This is what I use for searching craigslist. Sometimes really good deals are to be found when the seller doesn't really know what they have and therefore don't spell correctly or just have a very general title.
So it helps to keep your search as general as possible and that is when over tagging cost you alot of time and nerves.
