Thumb Down at first seemed like a great alternative to the creeps lurking on CL and the industrial look of Craigslist. But there are many problems:

1.) Trolls and Flaggers. Bookoo allows the community to flag postings. So if someone doesn't like YOU or anything you are selling,... See Moreit is going to get removed. In my community, there is one wicked woman that consistently flags and removes postings she doesn't like. Bookoo should have a dedicated person who reviews the flagged items and only removes legitimate unacceptable postings.

2.) Harassment from fellow bookoo users. Anyone can anonymously email you and insult you. I have twice asked Bookoo staff to do something about this because the troublemakers hide behind anonymous email

3.) Forced to advertise with an eyesore sticker on your vehicle. Unless you want to pay $7/month, you have to purchase a big sticker and post it on your ride and advertise for bookoo everywhere you go

4.) Closed on Sundays... as if it is anti-God to shop for junk on Sunday.... fail

5.) Poor customer service. My many emails to customer service have basically been ignored

6.) Anti-civilian attitude. Most bookoos are military-based. Such as Fort Bliss bookoo, Fort Hood Bookoo etc. And the military wives on there will post ads that cater to military families only. Such as they will post an ad hiring for a babysitter and state "military wives only". Regular civilians cant wander onto a military base and buy stuff unless we have a base pass. So they need to keep those bookoos limited to the military base only and not the nearby town, which should have its own bookoo. I am sure the military people would not like to see an ad that states "civilians only, military people need not apply"

Overall I am very unhappy with Considering I myself purchased their sticker and advertised on my vehicle for 2 or 3 years, had to put up with trolls and flaggers, and poor customer service. If CL would clean up the spam and maniacs a little, it would be much better.

My wife and I joined this online yard sale web site because it looked like a great idea; a place where local people could buy and sell items they no longer need. My wife is not an American citizen and thus her English is not extremely fluent. She has endured... See Morea number of snide comments from people who seem to be bigoted against her. I reacted to these comments with emails and afterwards found my wife's posts and my own continually being flagged as "Prohibited," though usually we could find no violation in the rules. What started out as a nice experience has evolved into a situation of constantly being monitored by the "community" and having our items flagged as prohibited. All emails from the "community" are anonymous so there is no accountability as far as what person is writing the email and thus no way to challenge those who seem to have a very petty vendetta against my wife and I. I have decided that I will no longer advertise for free with a sticker on my vehicle. If my wife chooses to pay for a membership she can pay for one. I'm pretty disgusted with my experience with this "community" service" which actually tracks back to a company started in Texas and is now headquartered in Oswego, IL. This does not seem to be a friendly neighborhood community but rather a corporate entity masquerading as such.
