EB Comments of the Week, August 12th Part 1

impetuous said...

I wait until the face frowns. I like to see Etsy get pissed.

Ladies Auxilliary said...

Maybe Etsy can knit itself a customer service department.

caethes said...

Nonononono! You don't understand! It's a cunning (and cleverly hidden) promo for international sellers, to keep them happy and distracted from all the other problems.

Elizabeth nominated...

Back to School showcase is ONLY clothing.


Perhaps I should roll out my line of Back-to-School Birthday Suits, and throw in a "free" dorm quilt with every purchase.

The guy at the top proudly proclaimed he crafted a fake id to go to college. What makes you think anyone else at etsy has integrity?

What makes me steam is the crap that has gone on since Maria took over. Either she can't reign in the employees, or she's really there for an entirely different purpose.

caethes said...
And Etsy dumps Paraquat on it's grassroots once again!

Every time I
think they can't get any worse -and then they do.

If you were quoted, congratulations and thanks! You can find your
celebratory "I've been Quoted" (and other EB avatars) by clicking here.

*stands at the EB podium*
I would like to thank Big Brother 10 for being so ridiculous it makes the Etsy forums seem normal. I would also like to mention the Project Runway panel for being so honest and creatively insulting.

I would like to dedicate this to the recently muted. You are victims of an oppressive, self serving, dictatorship and it is our duty as Americans to offer you safe harbor!

Thank you Etsy Bitch for this prestigious honor!

*puts on steampunk helmet and takes a bow*

The Disgruntled One said...

I love all of these, but the Paraquat comment was my personal nominee!

Elizabeth said...

No, no, I didn't say that! I quoted it from the Back To School showcase thread, that's why it was in italics...

godot said...

Thanks for quoting me, I'm a buyer who is hououred.
Lest you think Maria is going to change anything, here's what's happened since she took over:
1. Bonnie and Clyde
2. Snatching a team grant from SoCal to support veterans and then outing them in the Storque
3.Giving Matt a chat to tell sellers how to get their stores ready for Christmas, since etsy will do nothing.
4. Having Mary come to the forum and tell you sellers can't have employees, and people then quote Stella who says last week, sure they can.
5. Spending lab money on cupcakes and hammock videos.
6.Having a one hour treehouse chat where she answered not one question. And never will.

Bring back the guy with the coral nail polish. At least you knew he was a buffoon.

Etsy, a division of Walmart.com

***Stands and applauds***

The Righteous One said...

Sorry, Elizabeth...I changed the wording :)

pennyfabricart said...

Heehee - thanks elizabeth & EB. I'll come out of lurking to take a bow.

Here's the listing:

Caethes said...


twice :-)

Though I must confess that 'Paraquat' was in fact hand-altered and that the original crafter was the OH.

The Kinky One said...

Sorry Elizabeth - that was my mistake.

Ladies Auxilliary said...

My fifteen-minute ticker begins right now!

I'm going to knit myself an Oscar... ;)

none said...

EB!!! did you see this:


How convienent for etsy, huh? To endorse renewing by making it easier to find.

(You don't have to post this, I was just too lazy to email you.)

TheSneakyOne said...

Its okay none, by all means, lets talk about it!

stace said...

you can almost smell how it all went down, too...

"etsy, we're making $x dollars a day on renewing. we need to make it easier to find."

"make sure you make it sound like you're doing it FOR them."

pffft!!! renewing is the more horrible act/advice ever. whoever founded this one should be strung up at town hall and pelted with beanie babies.
