Edgeio, Good Idea, Broken Implementation

One of the best ideas I heard in the last 12 months was Edgeio. This is a classified listing Website similar to Google Base. Back in early May, I tried creating an account on Edgeio and no matter what I did, there was always an error message between me and account creation. Eventually, after hours of frustration, someone at Edgeio told me that all the errors I was encountering were known problems, soon to be fixed soon. He setup my account manually and promised to send me a gift for my troubles, which I never did receive. In the time since, I've tried countless time to import listings, but I fail 9 times out of 10. I've tried claiming blogs and this also fails 9 times out of 10. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I've double checked the steps over and over and NADA. For some feeds, it works the first time, while others repeatedly don't work.
