& I am really, really upset about this. Why build my personal SEO if Etsy is going to buy it out from under me?

Etsy has replied:
the program has been stopped, at least temporarily

Thanks for your hard work on exposing this and your concern for all sellers here. I Read the whole thread and Franks response and do not for a second believe that Etsy is incompetent enough to not know which adwords they were buying. Thanks to you looks like somebody got caught red handed with their hand in the cookie jar!

Oh my... that is is unbelievably gutsy. And sorry, but the reply sounded like they were perhaps trying to wiggle out of it. Etsy certainly does not need to purchase adwords for shops, because if you search a specific shop name it comes up really high in Google anyway... at least mine did the last time I checked.
Thanks for staying on top of all this Cindy!
