I'd move on. This person is trolling Craigslist - you want meat, they don't have meat, they just want to tell you what you're doing is "wrong".

Next.

My posts keep getting flagged and removed. *sigh*.... Haters.
What section are you posting in?

Same here, Olive. Every ad I post on CL gets deleted within an hour.

I have had luck on Freecycle, though. I think the people there have a different mentality, and you can't delete other people's ads!

I'd be like "Thank you for the concern, but I know what I'm doing."

Noah, what a coincidence! I just got a similar response from my post on Kijiji. Woowee! Someone actually wrote:
"Why would you keep your dogs if you can't afford to feed them....would you like to eat freezer burnt food???? don't be so selllfish and give them away if you can't affort to feed them fresh food!!!"
It just made me laugh! big laugh
But I wrote back something similar to you "Thanks for your concern, but it IS safe."

ETA: I got a response from another person saying she could direct me to a kibble food bank to help feed my pups. After I emailed her back that I feed raw and that it's not for monetary reasons, she actually wrote to me again and said "thanks for educating me". Speading the love!

That's funny Zeppelin! I wish people would realize how silly they sound when they say things like that.

I'm sure my response made them feel "silly", since I was very polite and provided valid information. They must of felt like red face
hahaha!
