A popular northern classifieds website is shutting down.

Myzer.com is a classifieds site that served the Timmins and Northern Ontario region for the past 16 years.

Organizers posted on the website that it began as a controlled, clean and harassment-free site that people could feel comfortable posting adds without criticism.

The post on the website states “became increasingly difficult to deal with bad behaviour and in doing so, came at great cost to my name and my health.” It adds that “I understand that when running a business, there will always be people who abuse/disrespect/slander the business, I still regret that most of my time was spent trying to deal with those people. I wish it could have been different.”

Myzer organizers say they are grateful for the many members and volunteers using the website for the past 16 years.
