Why was this craigslist ad flagged?

Title:(lessons & tutoring) Math/Physics/Chemistry tutor

I am a current college student majoring in mechanical engineering and will be available to tutor high school or college students in many subjects.

For high school: Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Chemistry.

For college: Calculus I, Calculus II, Physics, Chemistry, Statics, Dynamics, Thermodynamics, Mechanics of Materials, and can help with MATLAB programming.

Will meet in a local library, and will charge $25/hr.

I've read the TOU and am not sure what I did wrong. This is the second time I've posted an ad similar to this (re-worded).

Your ad itself does not violate the rules. And you included a price which is important. The only thing missing is the location.... are you clear about where you will or won't travel. The other problem area is the number of times you posted this ad. You are allowed one ad every 48 hours. Posting more often will get it flagged.

Sometimes people flag you if they think you are charging too much. That doesn't seem fair. See what happens if you say $10/hour. If that ad stay up, you found the problem.
