    From what I know, Kijiji is much more popular in Canada than Craigslist. I lived up there for my first year of university and everyone used Kijiji rather than Craigslist so I don't think it's such a big deal. I could be wrong though...

    I'm getting this from one of their sites just from going to the URL directly:

    yep, they shut themselves down for alleged violations of their own TOS

    apparently they might sue themselves as well...

    must have run out of users to go after! LOL

    You got to love a site that sues regular users who just want to make some money posting, yet you can easily go on there and find some dude that will toss your salad, and stab you when he is done with you. I hope the whole site gets shut down.

    I thought my browser was messed up with some glitch with cookies/cache.

    Everything will be fixed shortly. Seems like a problem with the .CA domain only.

    I use craigslist daily I don't know anyone who uses Kijiji.
