Back away from the pointy metal tools, Etsy vendors August 17, 2009 8:04 AM Subscribe
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.
