We tweeted asking if people wanted a listing strike, and put a link to this old post with avatars we made when Etsy Fucked up search, remember that? Ah that was fun. Good times.

Tons of you spoke out, many of you seemed to have missed them first time around, so here are the links (above) so you can see them again. If we get around to it, we'll make more for THIS particular blunder. ("MY stuff is not YOUR stuff, ETSY!" has a nice ring to it!)
We are serious about a listing strike, though, it would be a strong message if several thousand shops just shut stores down in vacation mode for one week with an avatar from above post and a bluntly worded shop intro. DO you think it would help? What is your suggestion for subversive things to act against them? What date should we do the listing strike?
In the past it's proved that they only move tp repair blunders when there is a major backlash that bleeds off of Etsy onto other sites. Maybe it's time to step up the show and finally try to hurt them the only places they care, the wallet and public opinion.
