Exactly my point, my password that was accessed is only used for accounts that If hacked would do no benefit to the hacker other than being able to post comments on my behalf. Which is why I am not worried or out for a lawsuit. All of my financial or any important accounts accounts for that matter have diffrent and more complicated passwords. Plus I guarantee if I were too start a lawsuit, it would be if no benefit because the person is likely living in his mothers basement and has nothing better to do than jack someone kijiji account over a hot link.

Emailing the admin of MaxBimmer I wouldn't mind doing. Anyone know how I could get his email ? Assuming he wasn't the one who did it

Its funny, reading rules of the forum...

"By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws."

Sounds like the mod should take his own advice.

Not in it for the fight...

Before you read on, I'm not trolling and I'm not calling anyone out.

You NEED to do some detective work here. You need to identify the IP address subnet that made the change to the information on your kijiji page. All of this can be requested of the administrator on kijiji and once they understand your story they should be willing to assist without a court request.

You do not know for certain that any specific mod/admin on the MB site changed your information until you can create the link. You can only cast baseless allegations.

What's more, it is highly unlikely that the perpetrator that made the changes made them from the subnet that the MB site is on, but rather one of the mod/admins from the MB site made the changes from their work/home computers subnet. Once the correlations are made you can freely post your allegations based on fact on MB and let the sites kangaroo court deal with the turmoil that would be created. It's not a fight but justice.

Read this before going on a rampage

I'm going to tell you a well known secret.
You should NOT post the URL link from the Kijiji ad from your browser RIGHT after creating it.
This gives anyone who clicks on your link access to "Edit Ad" at the top of the page, and access to your entire account.

I can almost certainly guarantee you this was not a moderator from Maxbimmer, but rather just someone who came across your ad and decided to troll you. I have clicked on other people's Kijiji links before to see that it brings up their personal account. However, I usually PM members to let them know instead of being an asshat.

This is a design fault of Kijiji, in that it relies on the URL and not on cookies stored on your local computer for access.

They take this stuff SERIOUSLY these days. I can take a joke too but that was too far. Was your contact info on that ad? Honestly? I'd sue that POS. even though I'm sure you're not gay, this could be considered a hate crime of sorts.
I'd take action.

Moral of the story, don't mess with our neighbors to the north. I always thought they were just a little more level headed than we are here. Guess there are exceptions to every rule...

Not right, no one should do that for any reason.

Wow was not aware of this, neverless still changed by one of the mods on maxbimmer even if he was able to edit my ad without my password. That's a serious glitch on kijijis end then. I'm over it now anyway. I made my point.

Yeah even if it was a kijiji glitch that allowed him to do this, still his motivation was because I hot linked a kijiji ad. One hell of an ego, ah whatever I'm not interested in any legal action haha too much hassle.

He basically just posted his personal confirmation link to the world via forum.
Theoretically OP could be the one sued for slander.. I have no opinion on this.

Yes I was unaware that this flaw existed on kijiji this is the first car ive listed on kijiji usually only use autotrader. If you read the whole description in the attached pic in the end it's signed by "troll/moderator of maxbimmer". I'm not accusing someone at random.

I'm really not trying to start something with anyone, I'm not trying find the guy or take any action. Whoever did this signed it as "the moderator of maxbimmer" other than the title of this thread I'm not slandering, simply telling my side of the story. At this point now I feel pretty stupid because of not knowing that flaw was there on kijiji, so I have to sit here and deal with my own idiocracy. Either way modifying my ad in such a way and signing it as whoever did. Shows very little class in my opinion as the title of the thread says.

Same. Some of the things in the trolling made me laugh pretty hard. Imagine coming across that as a potential buyer, lmao!

I highly doubt any of the active mods would do that AND then publicly sign off on it. That would be extremely stupid. Not impossible, but stupid. It's more likely that someone saw your listing through max and edited it to troll you.
