It just happened to me (again): a seller i had in my faves sent me a convo with special promos and blahblah. When i told her that it was spam she said that it wasn't and when i copied her the DOs and DONTs lines where it says that IT IS SPAM she replied that *I* need a holiday, and no matter how i tried to make her understand that it's wrong and against the etsy rules to convo who faved your shop with unsolicited messages, she treated me like i'm the biggest hysterical on earth XD
because you know, ALL the other she convoed were perfectly fine with that, and so kind, plus many others do that! i just hope she understood at last.
my other question is: shouldn't we be more 'harsh' toward these people and report them and just spread the idea that IT'S NOT GOOD TO DO THAT?
i know many don't report such convos, for lazyness or to not being labeled as a****es, but that's leading to more and more people using such promotional methods.
I don't know what about you, but i don't really want to see my convo box overfloaded with messages i don't really care about -__-
that's it, i'm curious to understand what's the general attitude towards this phenomenon.
for those who don't know, here's what's said in the DOs & DONTs:
>> You must not use Conversations to send unsolicited advertising or promotions, requests for donations or "spam."
>> If someone hearts your shop/item to mark it as a Favorite, that is not an invitation to send a Conversation to that person.
