I tried to place another ad yesterday and it was free for the basic ad. However, there are some categories that used to be free that no longer are. I tried to place another ad for a kayak for sale and only got the basic 9.95 ad or premium 19.95 ad. This used to free and included pictures and web links. Car ads are also no longer free even for a basic.

When browsing through these categories, there are far fewer selections which indicates not as many people are using the service for a fee. This also means fewer buyers of these items will be visiting the site to look because of the limited selection and the pay ads will not be as attractive since the potential buyer audience is reduced. Kind of a lose situation for everyone
