The management at kijiji are some of the stupidest people in the world. They are trying to legitimize this site by adding more metrics, analytics, bad rules and user racking. Some idiot decided it would be good to include how often you respond so they can block and ban you later with a point/credit system and of course track you at time of response. But how stupid and unfair is this? 90% of the replies from kijiji are lowlifes, kids and drug addicts. Some don't even need a reply because its just someone saying call me at xxx-xxx. Kijiji always rigs the system so the honest seller has to respond to trash and be rated for it. Why would anyone respond to a lowlife when you already put your best price, let's say $50 and some lowlife or reseller offers you $10. You are supposed to respond and say no thank you sir. I heard this same story from my friend who's a car dealer and they list cars for $4000-$5000 and people offer them $1000.
This is especially bad in big city like Toronto where its all refugees and refuse. The other thing people do is reference some ad 5000 miles away in Arizona and ask you to compete with it. Screw them. Just delete the account and put it on craigslist. Any site that forces you to sign up to tracking and metrics should be banned from Canada. Why even bother with Kijiji since their ads are way down and the prices are way up. The sellers lost about $13,000 since I stopped buying there because that is about what I spent last year before the bad changes.
