Please make this an option. It gets old seeing the same ads in each city frame when searching by distance. :evil: Some folks may like it but I'm sure there are a lot that don't. I may just go back to using the CL site.

You'll find the same thing there. The new 'feature' you're referring to is provided by craigslist, not Searchtempest. They're just testing it in a few cities at the moment, and they haven't given a way to turn it off. As soon as they do, so will I...

Ya, they just started testing it out a few days ago. If you scroll to the bottom of one of the cities where they're doing it, there's a link to give feedback. Since they're specifically asking for it, maybe they'll listen. Probably the best bet would be to ask them to make it optional; that seems to be what most people are asking for.
