Craigslist Anti-spam images don't appear

HELP!  I just "upgraded" from a Palm Treo to a Balackberry Curve and my browser will not show the anti-spam images when I try to post on Craigslist.  These are images that show some letters that have to be typed in when posting.

 

What is the problem, and how can it be fixed?

 

If I can't post on Craigslist, then the Blackberry is not much use to me.

Same as it ever was . . .

Hi and welcome to the forums,

You might try Opera mini. It's a free browser that a lot of users (myself included) use as

an alternate to some sites.

Here is the link.

Thanks,

Did either of you try opera mini that Bifocals suggested yet? Was just curious if that worked.

Re: Craigslist Anti-spam images don't appear

Unfortunately the Opera browser does not show the anti-spam images on Craigslist either.  We really need a fix for this.

 

Another problem I've seen with Craigslist posts is that the Opera browser wants to identify the numeric part of the e-mail address as a phone number, even though the entire e-mail link is clearly defined with normal HTML tags.  What's up with that?

 

Does anyone have any ideas?

 

I'm not opposed to using a seperate browser or even a dedicated application just for Craigslist, but is one available?

Same as it ever was . . .

Re: Craigslist Anti-spam images don't appear

Still waiting for a resolution to this.  I did download the Opera Mini, as recommended, but it apparently does not support the mailto: links, so I can't just click on the email address after I get through the Captcha images.
