Do you think having a specific section for businesses would help solve this problem?
It's worse here in Southern Cali...the car capitol. Blocking the IP addresses will solve nothing, as they can easily find another access point to post ads, nor will banning accounts (as it is too easy to name another one). Initiating MAC address bans would hurt their pockets.
Having a speific section for businesse/dealers will not effective. Dealers are fully aware that there is more exposure on the private/owner section...as proof...look on CL.
I am also disliking this issue in Dallas TX. I believe you should open up a new section for rims and tires. But it should not come up in the catch all near me sections. Rather it’s own separate section, so people can select. That way all other ads don’t get push back.
