In the last week or so, I've noticed that the listings (if you look at the post date) are from other dates than current: I.E.: Friday 5/24 - listings are sometimes new, sometimes old, etc. - very frustrating (especially to me because it makes me CRAZY that some folks post the same things every day, several times a day sometimes). Is this obvious to anyone in you area or just mine? (hope this makes sense)

They have "renew" button now. Basically, it reposts your listing as many times as you wish to.
Why worry? If you react to c-list that bad, find something better.
There's local ebay listings. Same principle.

I had forgotten that Kijiji even existed. It is nearly unutilized where I live, and peppered with paid ads.
BackPage is another one that never got real traction here.
Free classifieds - backpage.com

Craigslist rules here.

Did not know about Kijiji. Thanks.

According to Wikipedia, Kijiji websites are available for more than 300 German cities.

I do like the new 'map' feature. Living out in the boondocks you can eliminate the majority of the 'city' ads where distance makes a 'good' deal not so good....as well as vice versa.
