I took that to mean don't publicly (in the sale thread) offer a price if the seller has stated "firm." Go ahead and waste their time privately.

It explicitly allows the buyer to make a lower offer privately in general, but prohibits them from making a lower offer privately if the price is declared as "firm."

I think the classifieds should be just that---classifieds with no replies in the ad allowed, block them. PMs only and that's it...and no price policing in PMs either. Make an offer if interested, if not, move on...that's it.

Grant you, the seller could be a scammer....but then caveat emptor applies.

Does anyone place a newspaper classified ad in reply to a newspaper classified ad?

No they don't. That's because the person placing the ad pays for a service in which the cost of doing do is simply too high for most people to bother. On the other hand, those wishing to place ads for free, but not on either kijiji or craigslist...
