Quotable Quotes: Fussy Analysis

I'm starting to think that there are aliens among us:

"Fusspots fuss. If they keep on, they will become a Fuss. Nothing but Fuss! Misery does love company, Misery likes to evangelize, but I'm not buying what Misery is selling. I like being happy. I like my attitude of gratitude! Yay!"

Ah, now I get it. The old, 'if you are critical and complain then you must be a miserable person with no life and no friends.'

radcow said...

it goes both ways though, Lessa...If your happy and content youre an disillusioned ignoramus, living in loopity doopy lalla land.

I think there's crack involved here, and we all know...crack is whack.

wristeroni said...

Pfffft! Sounds like the ghost of Dr. Seuss to me.

Seventeen sales. Wow. I am impressed. I will follow her advice starting right now.

Put on a happy face, you bitches.

shannon said...

overly happy people seem suspicious to me because ignorance is bliss, and well, I'm naturally less happy thank most,usually settling around 'content'.

Kali said...

Of course I'm miserable, I'm sick and tired of Etsycorp wasting their $27 million on stupid shit.

's ok, though, it's not like anyone can buy what this Misery is selling - since I'm not listing anything any time soon. Maybe someday I'll even pay my overdue $5 bill...

shannon said...

am I a bad person for thinking well..people say bad attitudes make you not sell, but my attitude is bad and I make more sales than many happy people? what's up with that?

Shannon - I'm just pointing out the sillieness of extremes. There is a middle ground and constructive criticism can serve a purpose.

The Dangerous Mezzo said...

I really disliked being referred to as a fussy fusspot in that thread. The OP also decided I was a little misery-guts and publicly dismissed anything I said because of I've been openly critical of Etsy.

I don't understand why people can't accept that I truly love and appreciate the great things about Etsy while at the same time wanting them to change the really stupid things.

Sigh.

Thanks, Bitches. You make me feel much less alone.

I keep Fusses as pets. They are cute and furry and come in lots of colors.

*pets purple fuss*

the stinky one said...

The 'happy' people go to extremes just like the 'unhappy people'. The difference is, the unhappy people pick a subject to be unhappy about and the happy people really have no focus at all. The float along on a cloud of ignorance and refuse to acknowledge that often, unhappy about a certain thing doesn't equal unhappy in general.

I agree with shannon that overly happy people are suspicious.

The Kinky One said...

Is it just me, or did the whole vibe of that thread feel like a kid's show from hell?

eclipse said...

Just watch out for the "happy people" and self-proclaimed "nice people" when something pops their bubble. They aren't accustomed to dealing with reality and setbacks and frustrations, so the first time they think someone copies them or rips them off or hides their xanax, they will EXPLODE into rage. "Happy" people can turn psycho on a dime. They will "happily" kill you over the slightest perceived insult. Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.

Etsy is getting to be more and more like that camp in one of the Addams Family films, with all the nasty intended group hugs and shit. I wonder how many potential buyers waiting for a reply to their week-old convos to a seller are reading that thread and thinking 'gee, I hope she doesn't answer because I don't wanna deal with kooks like this!'

caethes said...

Eclipse - I agree. I'm watching one shiny happy person right now and I predict 3-4 weeks before there is a major tantrum and melt-down. The cracks are showing.

Kinky - my first reading I thought it was the most hilarious piece of sarcasm. Piss-taking at it's finest. I suspected one of you lot...

There's a difference between being a satisfied customer and being a sycophant. Etsy has a very high percentage of the latter, imo.

"Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball."

But it's so much fun

woolies said...

spidercamp needs to make a bunny with 'fusspot' on it.

impetuous said...

woolies,
I'm feelin the need for an Etsy Bitch bunny too.

Put on a happy face said...

share the prozac please...

Heather said...

What I don't think some sellers understand is that running around calling people "fusspots" and such does you no favours. If you think that the "fusspots" are not professional and that you wouldn't buy from a shop that has shown "fusspot" tendencies on the forums...well, they're doing the *same thing* but just on the side of the lobotomized.

Srsly...there are a few shops where although I like their stuff, I won't buy from them. And I'll be honest, they don't sound too smart.

Smarty Pants said...

the forums are filled with silly fools now. It's all been ruined. Idiots.
You can be positive without reenacting an episode of Barney and you can gripe about Esty in your own thread, without having to poop on anyone's parade. What is wrong with people? You just HAVE to post in every f*KING THREAD?
C'mon!

Peldyn said...

well AuntFanny once puked in every thread!

just jerky... said...

I don't get it. Etsy will waste their precious time and resources on flash games. Someone else has that department. But what are the programmers doing that's keeping them from doing things like adding RME and google checkout to the site?

Why does it take them a year to fix things? I always wonder how the site is coded. I look at the source but there's a lot of source code that you wouldn't see if it's php. etc.

Why is it like pulling teeth to get Etsy to focus on important things.

I don't need anymore flash apps. Do you?

shannon said...

I agree, eclipse. People say they are all happy and fun, but then they snap.

radcow said...

now Im scared of my impending happiness snappage.
watch out!! Its probably going to look like a pinjata of sugary, rainbows and glee when it happens.
