Or did he? Well not really. Its a very long post that basically says due to privacy concerns they cannot give anyone more info on how they determined that Ecologica is not a reseller.
Then he went on to bash the Etsy community and tell us that this won't be tolerated. Reading it feels like a parent putting you in time out. I just saved you 15 minutes of your life reading nonsense. But if you really want to read the whole thing click this.
It is interesting to me that Chad worked for Yahoo for years. Many of you know I have been a content writer for Yahoo for years. Yeah they don't treat their freelance writers very well either. The stories I could tell.
Chad really needs to hire better PR and better blog writers. His post is probably just going to rile up people more.
And there is yet another protest page (click here) The problem with all these Etsy protests is a huge lack of communication and organization. There are now too many with too many different dates. As I posted before to be effective at all it has to be on one date, with a huge amount of sellers. Too bad all these protest sites cant get together and pick one date.
The only good that would come out of an Etsy black out day is that it would probably get national media attention. But it won't if everyone is on a different page.
Like I said in my Etsy forum post, why Etsy would save one store and sacrifice so many other stores is beyond me. All they had to do was apologize for their mistake and delete the offending store. Pretty easy. They don't seem to have any issue deleting stores that aren't even resellers or demanding you take down listings for legitimate items.
