Well, thhhhbbbbbb. Amazing that being classy can STILL bring out a response of fuckwittery, asshattery, and general snarkiness from, um, "some people." I hope bridgemanstudios and his rockin' pottery get lots of hearts for trying to take the high road. Besides, he looks like a hottie. : )

impetuous said...

I have a problem with people who sit at the front gate of the forums preying and profiting on naive newcomers. This person is a fucktard and deserves everything she gets.

just bitchy said...

Ditto twinks and impetuous.

Why etsy let's that person run free on the forums is beyond me. She has been abusing people for as long as I can remember.

They mute people at the drop of a hat and this asshat goes on and on.

And etsy wonders why people thinks they engage in favoritism.

srsly said...

It seems like she scans the forums, just waiting for chance to pounce on others. Do you ever see her post otherwise? No.

I cannot believe etsy lets this go on and on and on.

Dear Idiot:
What is this 'jealousy' you speak of?

I have over twice as many sales as you do; I'm hardly jealous of you.

You are rude, condescending, combative and have much too high an opinion of your own success (?).

Most of your posts are an embarrassment, but of course you don't realize this.
Your self confidence and arrogance confound me; just because you say you're articulate, kind & helpful doesn't make it true.

We're laughing at you, BeeeeGeee.

P.S. Declaring the time it takes to crochet a lip balm holder (30 minutes) is stupid. gehgeh.

couldn't have said it better myself.
bravo!
Some people really, truly should be medicated.
It baffles me why people like that are allowed to stay on Etsy.

...OR I'LL CUT YOU... AND ADMIN WILL LET ME....

PLEH! BeaG needs to get laid IMO....

gehgeh gag said...

One more comment to the Blue Bear:

You claim in your typical self-congratulatory bravado:

"I am a (unofficial) personal mentor to hundreds of other sellers."

Really? Wow.
Do these hundreds of sellers realize this?

More likely, this is another delusion from your inflated ego.

If, in fact, there *are* hundreds of sellers that are being mentored by you and presumably are grateful for your wisdom, generosity & guidance ... how is it that none of these sellers ever sing your praises in the forums or come to your defense when you're making an ass of yourself?

I know why, BlueBear: because they don't exist.

So pathetic.

beensprout said...

How is that an acceptance? Accusing the apologetic party of carelessness and jealousy, in the same sentence as declaring your complete innocence.

Narcissistic, much?

impetuous said...

actually I saw this thread where people were naming off their "role models" and many in the thread said BG.

about four pages in, after three or four compliments, her answer to the OP was, NO ONE.



nice.

The Ebon Swan said...

Classy. S'all I'm sayin'.

silver-gwyn said...

She's truly one of the nastiest people in the fora. It's incredible how Admin lets her get away with attacking people on a regular basis. Ugh.

spetsy said...

anyone else remember her post about why you aren't selling- because your stuff is crap, and she's the only one that will tell you that?

Bunny Pincher said...

LOL, Spetsy. I missed that one but I have been tempted many times to tell people their stuff is crap.

That whole thread was just... Yeah...

Unmet said...

Having been on the receiving end of Ms. BeaG's nasty, I felt sorry for this poor guy who was trying to make whatever slight to the B right. Get a life BG!

Paw & Claw Designs said...

i'm just a pussy ( ha, ha, i love puns) but i run away, FAST when ever she's on a thread.

she always makes my brown eyes blue.

wait, i have hazel eyes.

whatever.

she make kittie sad.

or angry.

or both.

allfallsdown said...

I lost my shit when I saw her throw out that comment!

still refusing to play the veiled promo game said...

daaaaaaang.

Always abusive and condescending. And it's NOT the language barrier that's to blame, like she makes it out to be a lot of times.

And can I just say, when I come across someone who's hearted almost 2000 shops, am I the only one who immediately stops taking that person seriously? (as if I needed another reason...)

Pottery Girl said...

Personally, I love to bait her. It is fun to innocently point out her double standards.

Have you noticed? Every time a thread is going in a direction she doesn't want it to, she breaks a rule, then reports HERSELF! I suppose it is only important that OTHERS follow the rules.

impetuous said...

whaaaat? she reports herself?

*makes a letter "L" with hand and places on her drunken forehead*

LOOOOZA!

SaidSweetly said...

This is how one of her "mentoring" threads goes:

Page1: BG: To be as successful as I am, you must be as successful as I am.

Page 2: You are right, you are so right, thanks for imparting wisdom, you are so right, we are newbies and haven't yet learned you are a wench, you are so right, pearls of wisdom.

Page 3: BG: I will bump this up for more praise of my brains.

Page4: BG: bump ..praise, praise

Page5: BG: bump ...ghe praise ghe

Page 6: Othershopownder: But what about this?
BeaG: You are not successful because your stuff is crap, unlike my crocheted chapstick holders, which are not crap and which I sell to supplement my income due to disability, even though Belgium has one of the best social disability programs in the world, and the best private healthcare in Europe, and if they knew I was making cash on the side I would be in trouble. I am successful because I make wonderful useless things and prey on your sympathies and cheat my government.

just bitchy said...

OMG!!!!

saidsweetly!

How perfectly and sweetly bitchy!!!!

I do so love it when she calls people's stuff "crap."

That's what you want from an unofficial mentor, right?

rotflmao!

Pottery Girl said...

Bwahahahahaha!

Well played!

BTW - the word verification following that comment is mmhhm!

Even blogger agrees!

The Disgruntled One said...

You absolutely nailed it, saidsweetly. I usually just ignore her, (because I feel she isn't worth paying attention to), although she's burned my ass, a few times.

It was very interesting to see the unleashing of mass Etsian anger at her in these threads; I got the feeling the last straw had just landed on the camel's back, and everyone had just had enough of her.

If she had apologized for the period comment, I might have more respect for her. Nope, she didn't. She couldn't even accept that poor seller's graceful apology without snarking at him some more.

Self righteous, humorless, arrogant and self-absorbed.

(Disabled people from Belgium can be narcissistic assholes, too, ya know!)

sleepwalker said...

I'm a fairly peaceful person, but she makes me long for the day when the technology to reach through the screen and smack someone silly is finally mine.

I freely admit that watching her get her ass handed to her on a plate in her most recent attempt at making herself look big brought me all kinds of joy.

fed up said...

A lot of what she says is true, but there are better ways to present yourself in the forums. I agree that many are fed up with her attitude.

Start To Finish Supplies said...

So glad to see that I am not alone in my distain for this person. I had the pleasure of knocking her off her high pedistal once before. And what did she do? She ran to Admin crying harassment! Ha! She does not know harassment, maybe she should look in the mirror. It is a comical little forum thread if anyone wants to see it.

Anon at 10:02am, sorry. No Anon comments allowed

nitpicker said...

I have occasionally heard people assert that "she" is actually a "he" but according to the profile, there is one of each working as BeaG. I wonder which one frequents the forums? And which one "mentors" hundreds of people?

Considering how many have been muted, and for so little, it is really amazing s/he hasn't. Remember back when people kept trying to get Admin to lay out clear guidelines about what would/would not get you muted/banished, or would/would not get your shop closed?
Ahh, good times!

THIS JUST IN:
B has revisited the thread (five days later) to say thank you and tell us all about her chronic health issues!

marjie said...

What a monster!!
At least we all know she's probably a very miserable person. Over 1,000 sales won't help that!

Heather said...

oy. Every time I see that little Bear I know my heart rate is going to go up. I tell myself NOT to read her, but then...can't help myself.

And the people kissing her feet drive me just as nuts. She's such a bitch...and I think that translates in ANY language!

spotthebraincell said...

Yeah BeaG is an obnoxious and self-righteous twit but, god, get over it.
Don't you have more to do with your time than expend your energy on him/her?
