shops closing on Etsy saddening.

I've seen several shops closed down over the past few days. A few forced by Etsy and most just due to overwhelming dishonesty here.

- they were all Real Handmade.

I miss them :(

Yes etsy is closing down honest sellers. And going to batt for dishonest ones

^^^^
Honest shops get closed for statements like that.

And the second shame is resellers don't usually support other etsy sellers but honest ones, like me often do.

Everyone has to be careful, things have caused people to begin calling out big time, and, it is against the T.O.U.s

Despite our own beliefs of any shop - if Etsy stands by them, they stand by them, and we just have to move on. We can't necessarily say any of them are dishonest... as hard as this whole things been.

It's NEVER worth losing your shop over an opinion of another shop.
That is sad and frustrating.

What ticks me off though, is people who had their shops closed for violating the TOS using their story as some sort of 'proof' that Etsy is unfair...................Not referring to closings in the last few days, referring to something I read today. :<

I'm not talking about any shop in particular just the general feeling from the forums.

I'm just being careful with what I say...

Triple times moderating and seeing what I say is within the TOU.

I can't afford to be muted or closed myself. It's a touchy subject :)
