I would guess it's either the reverse lookup, or you are showing up on
one of the DNS-based blocklists that tracks "residential" IP space.
Probably the former, given the wording of the rejection.

IMO Craigslist is not handling this very well, especially considering
its focus as a consumer-centric service.  It seems the heavy flood of
spam in recent months is causing some administrators to make poor

Consider switching to an ISP that lets you customize the reverse
lookup.  I use DSLExtreme which does this.

In the meantime if you (or anyone) would like a gmail invite, just let
me know.
