From the Bitches Auxiliary: Why

Reasons why forum posters ask inane questions 14 times in a row are:


1. The Rules and Regs are in 10 different sections and they don't have 3 weeks to read them all.

2. Their mother, sister, girlfriend, boyfriend, dog, cat, goldfish, little 2 year old brother and 1 year old neice already have 50 Etsy Shops between them and they never read the Rules either, and they've been selling god knows what for the last 2 years.

3. Everyone knows Etsy really doesn't have any rules; they just make them up as they go along.

4. Out of 150,000 stores, there are so many that don't belong, who's going to notice I put up a store selling repackaged Q-Tips and labelled them "handmade"?

5. What???? You mean I have to pack up those Q-Tips I sold and actually put postage on them and send them?

Rules are so old school.

LOL @ Andy

We've all had the odd brain fart where this stuff is concerned but after you've been around a couple of weeks and read anything other than your own threads, you *might* get a clue.

I think a lot of new sellers don't bother until they encounter a problem. Then they make a panicked run for the forum.

Wait Etsy has rules and regulations?!?

Oh, by the way, the rules and regs being in 10 different places isn't a new concept. they do that at our job too.

I actually told a supervisor that I do not have time to read a 1000 page policy and precedure every day to find out what's been changed...because they didn't think they should have to tell us anymore!!

Climbing the ladder to corporate america doesn't have to make sense, it just is what it is. Crap.

I think I have some vintage Q-tips around here somewhere...

Someone was selling vintage maxi pads so why not Q-tips?
