You will no doubt all remember the riots here in the UK. The rioting and looting was dreadful and cast an awful shadow over the reputation of Great Britain. I am NOT suggesting for one moment that what has been happening here on Etsy is that enormous but I think that we should consider that the forums and treasuries ARE in the public domain and whilst I whole-heartedly agree with the reasons for the storm, sellers should not be trashing the very shop front that houses their own crafts. I am reading threads now where sellers are arguing amongst themselves!
I think it would be better to flood Etsy admin with emails rather than everyone 'do their dirty washing in public' If you had a real shop you wouldn't stand arguing in front of customers would you?
Ebay is for resellers. Etsy is a place for talented and gifted individuals who want to share their craft with the world.
