And I quote - "A Lawsuit Waiting to be Filed"

For some reason, Etsy admin is not taking this situation very seriously. Here is something to consider - From reader comments on the AuctionBytes blog article regarding the Etsy coral debacle:
"One has to wonder how long before a class action defamation suit is filed against Etsy for the article. The article implies that there is no ethical coral to be had, but there is. It would be simple for an attorney to build up a case on this, and the libel that the article causes towards the sellers on Etsy that legally and ethically use coral. Not only has Etsy defamed part of their customer base, but by encouraging a boycott, is also directly adding to the defamation with a tacit loss of revenue.
It's a lawsuit waiting to be filed."
