Post 5555 of Coralgate

Well by now we've figured out that in essence, what they did was give us a place to party, (as long as we paid our fees on time).  So my compatriots and I have begun a I DON'T GIVE A F*** thread.

In the words of Patti Smith:  We created it... Lets take it over!!

We're having a give-a-way for the dispossessed, betting on what post will be our last.  Etsy employees do not qualify, and the rules my be a bit distorted from the effects of our beverages of choice, but the spirit is there, the one that will outlast any attempt at corporate co-option, the solidarity that dares to say "I see through bullshit, and I call shenanigans!"  It's all in good fun.  We will deal with the Etsy #coralgate hangover in the morning.    For now, drinks are on us, and this time it's not Kool-aid!

    For me, it's "can open-worms everywhere". I cannot get them back in the can no matter how hard I try. After what I've seen over there during the last week, and what was done to me and many others, the thread closing etc- I realized when I saw his post that for me this cannot be undone. That pig is too ugly to look better with a little lipstick. I might have a little respect if I saw major firings (or firing squads) and full admission of the horrible way this was handled. Total restructuring. But they seem to think they can just hide their bad policies and inability to make good decisions and it will eventually go away? It is all out there and everyone is starting to see it clearly. Etsy is so over. It was a beautiful dream...

  3. I agree wholeheartedly with muted. I hope the dream really is over for the cats who have lined their pockets with the money of the sellers there. Based on Rokali's silly response, all I can say is...."Someone needs to take him out back behind the woodshed."
