Perhaps some people might have missed hearing and/or be interested in hearing that MeFi member Jacquilynne
has taken down her blog, The Good, the Bad, and the Etsy
, on which she served up the best and worst of Etsy with a generous dollop of hot, sweet snark. The Good, the Bad, and the Etsy was posted to Projects
, and subsequently to the front page
, and was building a good readership when Jacquilynne decided the fun of posting wasn’t worth having to deal with the death threats(!) from some unhinged Etsy crafters. I still can’t get my head around the fact that anyone would threaten someone’s life for critiquing their crafts
, especially when said crafts were ripe for everything that Jacquilynne said about them. Jacquilynne, it’s a shame your blog had to die because some Etsy sellers have a tighter grip on their shears than they do on their sanity, but thankfully, you are still with us.
