Responses to policy concerns, one month later

Etsy, it has been one month since a certain article about a certain featured seller brought to a head questions about some of Etsy's policies. In his "Notes from Chad" post responding to the issue, Chad Dickerson promised to "continue the dialogue" with the community. What progress has been made in resolving the situation? Does Etsy plan to share its revised policies with the community for feedback before making them final?

Let's please try to focus on what Etsy needs to do rather than what Etsy didn't do and clearly isn't going to do so this thread doesn't need to be closed.

They should, it would be nice. But are they going to..... I doubt it very much.
silly kevin. you're supposed to be distracted by listing multiple quantities of your items today, not dwelling on stuff etsy forgot about weeks ago.
I'm choosing to move forward rather than backward.....;)
I am looking forward to clear policies, all in one place, so I don't have to search the forums to see what one admin said three months ago to clarify a question. For instance.

Please just put it all in one place so I can understand if I am legal or not when I have a question. Thanks.
They locked all the threads that even bring the hint of questioning our Etsy overlords - to them; their job is done.

^^^^^^^^^^^This. Please.
Money really is the bottom line. Etsy will do what is in Etsy's best interest to do. If a shop is making 1100 sales a month, Etsy will allow them to continue, regardless of how the sales are made. Sad, but true, as it is in most of life. Do I want to see a change? Absolutely! Do I think change will occur? Sadly, no.

It's something Etsy has done in the past.

It's not something I am particularly expecting from the current Etsy, but I am trying to keep a positive outlook.
It would really be nice if they at least responded openly. They did talk about continuing a dialogue, and we, The Naive People of Etsy :D, continue to expect that to happen.
