Dubizzle.com – Dubai’s Community website

From their About US page:

bout Dubizzle
Dubizzle (pronounced doo-biz-zull) stems from an ancient Greek word,
dubizelius, meaning:
really-awesome-and-easy-to-use-community-portal-for-Dubai-that-will-be-displayed-and-accessed-through-a-futuristic-device-called-a-computer-that-won’t-be-invented-for-another-2-3-thousand-years
(rough translation). Of course the word is a rather bleak and
oversimplified definition of the website dubizzle.com, but we decided
that due to the strange and fortunate coincidence that dubizzle kind of
sounds a bit like the word Dubai, we’d give it a try. Yet perhaps the
most interesting and baffling aspect of this ancient Greek word is that
Sim and J.C. made it up.
