Twitterings to mystery!

EtsyBitch is now on twitter, since most of the Etsy admin and a couple hundred Etsy sellers already are. Etsy even did a "how to use twitter" story I believe all the pablum there fades into one big pile of vomit, honestly.

Task at hand, right, we're on twitter and of course clicked 'follow' on Rokali, who no one was following, and had made no posts.

Until obviously he got the notification of his being followed by us, (see how handy notifications are from you web service are ROB???? Informational and timely!) and he made his first post ever mere moments later... "Redesigning Etsy. Starting Etsy.org." OOOH mystery! Intrigue! Drama!

http://etsy.org/ is up and regged to rokali (Rob Kalin).

What will it's purpose be? I will fathom a guess that he's going with a Scientology idea and founding a religion purely on money, power, and ego alone. Yes... I think he's starting The Church of Etsy!

Of course, it's entirely more likely it will be some kind of lame charity or green/vegan crafting doodah.

I am not surprised at the similarity between Robbo and L. Ron Hubbard. Both had Messianic complexes. I do hope that he does not end up a prisoner of his own creation as Hubbard did in the end.

I've been speculating that Etsy will sell out to the Scientologists for months now!

(had to delete my previous comment because I cannot type or spell, apparently)

Shouldn't his first website be fully functional before moving on to another?

I bet it's an offshoot of the Buy Handmade pledge site and collaboration.

Who do we get to play Tom Cruise's part?

*wonders if etsy dot org will have an alchemy*

Anyone think it looks a little too much like pinkdoodle?

No? Just me? Okay :D

the only thing scarier than a for-profit would have to be a not-for-profit

(fully aware that a .org can be anything, but still - just imagine)

Dear Admin/Rokali,

We know it was a joke. We knew it from the beginning. We posted it anyway, just because we could. Just because we knew you would be arrogant enough to try and screw with us, because you think we're stupid. Nice try. Didn't work, but we certainly have YOUR attention, don't we??

Of course, if they had two braincells to rub together between them all, they would have already registered www.etsy.org, esty.com, and any other permutations of their name with forwarding service to the correct URL.

But that would make sense and we can't have that now, can we?

Aw, he's just messing with us. Glad he has time to.
