Erased by Craigslist Flaggers.

In an attempt to find participants for my research project, for several months I've been posting "recruitment" ads on Craigslist SF Bay Area. Recently, my ad has been "flagged" by Craigslist viewers, and subsequently deleted (twice). BELOW IS A COPY OF MY CRAIGSLIST POST.

Any Craigslist viewer may flag any post for any reason. With enough flags (the number is not disclosed by Craigslist), the posting is automatically deleted. And, the more times a posting has been deleted, the "easier" (whatever that means) it is for the same ad to be deleted in the future. No reason has to be given for the flaggings, but if I can figure out how to take part in a sort of "flagging forum" offered by Craigslist, and ask very nicely why I'm getting deleted, then some of the flaggers may tell what they think the problem is with my ad.

I'm working on ways to change the recruitment posting, and am asking readers of THE WIDENING GUYER to digest the recruitment ad below, and to give me feedback on how it may be changed for the better. In addition, I'm interested in your thoughts in general about my research. Is it appropriate, morbid, provocative, something worth doing? What are your ideas?

I just wanted to commend you on your study--my guess is that the craigslist "flaggers" have not really read what your study is about and are simply reacting to the evocative word "suicide." I know that, as a clinical psychologist, I have seen many practitioners who become quite frightened when clients speak of suicide and rush in to "contract for safety" with them, without really discussing clients' thoughts and feelings about how they think suicide will "help" them. I am not saying that we shouldn't do everything to prevent the client acting on this urge, but how is it that we, as therapists, can be so ready to discuss most matters with clients but not how they actually view their own death and why they really want to hasten it? [I really appreciate Marsha Linehan's (founder of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) comment that "suicide is the ultimate form of dissociation"--which, she points out, wouldn't be so bad a coping mechanism except it is so permanent.]

I would be curious if there are any "previews" of the results of interviews you have conducted thus far that you would like to share at this point? And/or any thoughts you have about how people who have life threatening illness may approach the subject of suicide differently than, say, someone experiencing emotional pain or other difficulties.

It is useful to try everything in practice anyway and I like that here it's always possible to find something new. :)
