LOTS of great stuff in that thread...

"Swoon says:

the driver of the bus wanders off
and goes mad, goes mad,goes mad
and it's all very sad
the people on the bus just sit where they are
eating bugs and making rugs
until the DaWanda helicopter arrives to take them away
it takes them away , it takes them away...."

I love the song.

"we don't know what goes on behind closed doors"

Actually, we DO know because they blog about what goes on. Of course we don't know everything but we know enough and can SEE enough to know that they are neglecting some very important and very BASIC aspects of running a business.

"in fact, we are taking up more valuable space on the server!"

Will someone please slap her now? PLEASE?

I'll send you a pie if you do.

"Sorry- this isn't a "clique" thing, it's an etsy-is-taking-my-money-without-providing-a-decent-service thing."

Ba-dum-CHA!

I always love the people who join in those threads to tell everyone how happy they are with Etsy.
Ok, that's great for you.

Oh...but wait...you keep coming back to post about how grateful everyone should be and how their concerns are not your concern and that anyone who has a complaint should just get a life. Blah blah, hot tub, blah blah, ironic, blah blah blah.

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands...in another thread.

just bitchy said...

They only stay happy for about 4-6 months. Eventually they see the same pattern develop that we've all seen.

You wait, those cheerleaders will be bitching about etsy soon enough.

I've seen it over and over and over and over and over and over and over........

Do you think we can come up with 60 people- over 20 somethings, and start a new site. Of course, they would have to be unpaid for the first, say year or so, but ..

oh wait. No, they WOULD get paid! No halfpipe, no video games, no pies.. they'd just have to work and get paid, like everyone else, then go HOME for their social life.

Oh yea, and they wouldn't have to live in Brooklyn either. We have this thing called the world wide web or something, where you can actually work from home!

And they wouldn't have to uphold the indie-hipster-if-it-aint-broke-start-over philosophy. It'd be fine if they did a google relevancy first type search. Yeah. oh, and there could be real integration with paypal too. Because if there isn't, then we'd have a good reason to talk in house payment system, right?

ok, I'm done.

Closed Threads said...

I think you'd get a lot of support for that idea. :)
