Leaving ETSY

My NEW info on my ETSY page:

Due to ETSY allowing a disgusting person to sell disgusting items, I am moving back to ArtFire.

ETSY feels that cards making fun of children with Downs Syndrome, congratulating people on being raped and being diagnosed with AIDS and Breast Cancer is not against their terms of use. WTF I think they need to pull their heads out of their ass’.

If they or a loved one ‘applied’ to any of these cards or if they had compassion this shop would be gone.

I love funny off kilter jokes and am a bit off myself at times, but this type of freedom of speech is not funny. Here’s funny… I hope those that find this okay and think it’s funny, will need one of these cards one day. Then let’s see how funny they are!
For those who I purchase from regularly, I’m sorry, But I will not be purchasing from there either.

I hope others follow suit and leave here as well. It all about principles and morals which it seems etsy does not have.

To see what I am referring to and SIGN the petition [which does not seem to bother etsy] go here:

Petition to Remove re: Etsy shop

This is a letter a friend who complained as well received from the powers at esty. I still have no received anything back from them.

This is Adam Brown, I’m the press manager at Etsy. Thank you for sharing your concerns about this shop. I’m sorry to see that something in our marketplace was upsetting to you. I agree with you that the items are offensive. But, they are not illegal, nor are they breaking any of Etsy’s rules about selling on the site. 

Since …it appears that you have already received our standard response, I will skip it. Please feel free to pass along my contact information.

Thank you,

Hey Adam, get your head outta your ass dude!!

Etsy’s official policy is to take no responsibility for the products sold on its site. Etsy’s official Terms of Use state that it  “has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed.” However, in the list of prohibited items, Etsy says that it does not allow items that harass others or that are deemed obscene.

So Adam, Congratulating someone on getting raped is not obscene?? Again you and your company need to get your heads out of your ass!!!!


Since my morals seem to be above others, I’m outta etsy. I guarantee they make more off of my shop than this other idiots, and money is what it’s all about right?

I hope to see you at my new shop on ArtFire.

Blessings and Hope!
