There are good reasons for wanting to view old Craigslist ads that have been removed from Craigslist. If you are a seller, you may want to copy an old listing and relist it. If you are a buyer who has recently purchased something, you may want to take a look at the ad again to check the description or see if there is an implied or express warranty. For sellers, your best bet is to create a Craigslist account before you place ads. For buyers, you might be able to find a cached page on a search engine.
