Thinking about buying or selling something on Craigslist today?
The Canadian sites for Craigslist went down this morning – and there’s a rather cryptic explanation that pops up.
All of the over 50 localized Canadian Craigslist, including the Winnipeg site, are down, and viewers are redirected to the message from the company.
The message also says Craigslist "does not permit automated posting or the employment of posting agents (software or human).
"Users who post non-local or irrelevant content, repeatedly post the same or similar content, or otherwise misuse craigslist's services detract from the user experience for all craigslist users."
The Free Press is trying to contact Craigslist for comment.
Other Craigslist sites in The U.S., Europe and Asia seem to be working properly.
So no problem getting more information on that Peugeot 10-speed bike from a Craigslist seller in Berlin. It’s only 50 euros.
