The Week in Quotes, July 19th

Definitions

Asshats are people who try to shut down threads they aren't even involved in. And it's no joke-- all of the other thread types that get used over and over and over, ad naseum, THOSE threads get to go on eternally until someone loses interest. Why shouldn't a genuinely interesting thread that has some kind of viable purpose get to go on as long as we are interested?

I didn't realize the Ideas section of the forums was a competition.


Moving
Why was the anti spam thread moved to ideas

Hmm?

Why?

You couldn't see the idea? Let me spell it out for you. If you claim to be an anti spam company - dont make up some whacky spam your friends referal program.

Or how about, practice what you preach.


And here is a new idea for you.

Stop trying to hide threads that present feedback that isn't all sunshine and lollipops in ETC.

It is embarassing.


If you were quoted, congratulations and thanks! You can find your

Now, now. Don't be a grumpy hater and then expect them to actually listen to what you have to say.

Funny how many threads have been moved to Etc. lately, isn't it?

Not funny. What's the word I want?

Suspicious.

I think it's a tactic to shut down discussion. It works pretty well, too, except that EB posts links to all those hidden threads.

Tough luck, Etsy.

Closed Threads hasn't posted anything new in a week, I hope they haven't given up the blog. Hunting for drama takes time.

I think closedthreads said they had some real-life stuff taking their time right now.

Very VERY tired of important threads getting moved to Etc. It's like as soon as the heat is turned on in those threads Admin comes out and cracks a whip over our naughty heads saying, "Get down bitch! You're not allowed to question our crafty wonderfulness!"

Well excuse the hell out of me for wanting to know what the hell is going on!

Ah - the important threads get moved to the bottom but the person who posted the same thread 5 different times on "accident" (never mind that the title had different words and such in it clearly showing that it was surely not an "accident") gets to keep all 5 threads active in site help with people talking in all 5. Talk about flooding the threads with useless information.
