hi

got a silly task to post/manage dozens/hundreds of ads to craigslists
and i do not want to manage it manually and still do best effort to comply
to CL Terms

along the way, past 15+ years, i get irritated by "duplicate ads" and took
a couple days to write a python + selenimum automated CL ad flagger
( fyi: i've not written python code from scratch ... never seen selenium ..
)

eg.  se.flagger.py  -d -d -d -l city -u "computer services" -b -t ... etc

some cities and categories is full of CL ToU abusers ..

if anybody else is interested in flagging CL abusers, it's released at
http://GitHub.com/seauto/se.bot

multiple people need to flag the ads before anything happens to it

# additional code not yet released, not sure if it's good or bad to do so
- se.postbot -- automatically post ads from "/usr/local/CLads/... "
- se.renew ---- automatically renew CL ads requiring renewal ... need 2b
sanitized b4 release

luego
alvin
