Our time to stand up has never been more clear. Seller dissatisfaction has never been higher, and Etsy has never listened less then now.
Handmade existed before Etsy, it will be there after. While other venues get it and offer the service, features and tools Etsy doesn't. Etsy don't understand that it's sellers are more than a handful of dimes, they are ETSY'S CUSTOMER. And Customers have a right to ask for improvements, and question. They don't understand that silencing the "dissenters" only breeds more dissent and leads you to others asking more questions they don't want asked or have to answer.
Join us - our dear fallen, neglected, and righteously pissed off Etsians - for a strike and make them Etsy feel our wrath where it matters: the balance sheet.

(Ye, we know this is a bad time of year for this, so doing it before it gets any further into the Xmas season is better. We need to hit while the iron is hot, as it were.)
