Don't buy into Etsy's bullshit

As I was browsing the web yesterday I noticed tons of Etsy info from previous conversations talking about the same problem with resellers. Guess what???? They didn't do anything then and they won't do anything now. In the older posts like 2 years ago they told the Etsy sellers "were working on it". What they want us to do is forget.

Defination of FRAUD

1. A deception deliberately practiced in order to secure unfair or unlawful gain.
2. A piece of trickery; a trick.
a. One that defrauds; a cheat.

How do you spell Etsy ? FRAUD

They might say they will or say their trying but the bottom line is money in their pockets.  Do you realize how much money they will not get it if they throw all the resellers of crap off Etsy.  They are a business and the whole point of the business is to make money.  I do understand that.  But Etsy, than don't advertise your site as a handmade site.  That would be FRAUD.

Good Reading "The Skinny on Etsy"

"Our mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers. Our vision is to build a new economy and present a better choice: Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade. ... Who is Etsy? Etsy was founded by Rob Kalin, Chris Maguire, Haim Schoppik and Jared Tarbell in June, 2005. We are a community and a company." -- From Etsy's web site.   OK Rob.  How about all the resellers of crap you can buy online from China etc. ??????????????????
