I once listed some as goose schmaltz and got berated in an email by someone who said they were Jewish, and I should not even use that as a search term on CL if it wasn't kosher. But there are lots of people with strong opinions on the web. I apologized, and edited my advert to make it clear that it was not kosher. Just a warning for others, but thank you for your input as well.
I'd be leery after that too!! (I could totally see that happening where I grew up, but 90% of people in the city were Jewish). I suppose there is always someone who has to be difficult. I am not a CL user so maybe there is some cultural thing there I don't know. Still, I think big picture there is no reason to think that schmaltz would be any more kosher than chicken would be.

And people who want kosher schmaltz are probably not buying their food from random places or producers (an observation from living in a mostly orthodox community when I was a kid). If you live in an area where people do keep kosher and they might buy your meat products you probably should mention non-kosher, but I would imagine someone would have asked by now if that were the case.
