Kijiji Canada announces age restrictions

Hopefully this will cut down on 12-year-olds selling and buying video games, 13-year-olds selling their services as babysitters, 14-year-olds selling paintball gear, 15-year-olds selling dirt bikes and 16+-year-olds preying on all of them.

Just in from Kijiji Canada:

Kijiji cares about the safety of your entire family. We understand that in the age of technology kids are on the internet more than ever and free online classifieds can be a fun way for them to find toys, video games, clothes, and other cool items. While we pride ourselves on being a site that the whole family can use, we also know the concerns involved with transacting online. We want to minimize these risks. Therefore, for anyone under 16 years of age, we ask that you have your parents respond to any ads you may be interested in. And, if you wish to post an ad on Kijiji, that they do so on your behalf so they can be directly involved in the transaction. 
Kijiji reserves the right to remove any ad if we feel it is in the best interest and safety of our users

How about a limit of 18 YOA?

Minors are not legally able to enter into a contractual agreement.
