From: Etsy Marketplace Integrity
This is (representative’s name) from Etsy’s Marketplace Integrity Team. Thank you for your interest in selling on Etsy.
Unfortunately, some of the…
1. Etsy is the store who’s floor space you are renting. Therefore they have the right to deny you service.
2. Their rules are laid out clearly here: http://www.etsy.com/help/article/483 and speak about items needing to be handmade as well as why things will be flagged.
3. They explicitly state that they conversation to fix these issue should be private, by publicizing the issue you are not solving your problem but making it worse.
You can cry all you want, but Etsy is in the right. They should reinstate your shop since you meet their requirements; but they aren’t required too.
And? Just because a website isn’t required to provide anyone service doesn’t mean people shouldn’t publicize shitty service stories, especially when the website in question is a business. The only reason why Etsy would even ask that the conversations remain private is as a cheap way to avoid PR nightmares - e.g. we can screw you over and you can’t talk about it, or we’ll have a legitimate breach of regulations and then be excused in screwing you over. Catch 22 type situation, damned if you do and damned if you don’t.
The staff at Burger King is not under the obligation to sell me burgers, but if they refuse and then give me bullshit reasons as to why they won’t sell me burgers, you can be sure as hell I’ll share the story, even if they are within their right to deny me service and try to silence me with bullshit confidentiality clauses.

Admin note: escher-girls is not a source - the artist in question is kikkawa kabao though, me thinks, correct me if I’m wrong
What’s an embarrassment to the community is consistently stretching female characters - purposefully - beyond the point of physically possible to show off their ~assets~ in every goddamn shot.
LOL Okay I’m sorry but if you are in practically your bra and panties you may not be asking for it but you are inferring it. Sluts and their excuses.
bra and panties aka also the same clothing silhouette for a swimsuit. obviously that means all ladies at beaches and pools are “inferring” to it as well? fuck you ass-douche.
Oh ffs people need to stop using “she’s a slut” as an excuse - she likes sex so it’s ok to force it on her?? Perfect logic oh wait.
But since I’m feeling nice, here’s a helpful and comprehensive list of instances in which it’s OK to force sex on someone, for your perusal next time you need to blame the victim:
Hope that helped.
If the pissed off party wants someone to understand why they are angry calming down and coming back later and explaining yourself is the adult thing to doThe onus of making things right is on the offensive party, not the offended party. The adult thing to do is apologize if you offend someone and try to understand why they were offended, not act as though people are immature for being offended.
“telling me to cut my hands off and kill myself is where i draw the line (and why i’m disabling ask as of right now).”
This was just posted on her blog and I am not sure about the legitimacy of it but whoever is sending messages like this needs to stop immediately. A line was crossed today and regardless of a person’s actions it is never, ever appropriate to tell someone to hurt or kill themselves.
I appreciate the positive response to the matter but now that this has happened I want to make it clear: Art theft or otherwise, there is no reason why something like that needs to be said to anybody.
Just in case this reaches whoever said this: no.
We all know she’s fucked up - this is clear as day - but none of the harm she’s done is anywhere close to warranting something like being told to kill herself. She doesn’t need coddling or asspats, but she definitely doesn’t deserve this either.
You can’t exactly counter a wrong by doing an even greater wrong. Stop.
What you’re doing is even worse than what she’s doing/did.
This is a Pomsky. It’s a mix of a Pomeranian and a Siberian Husky. Pretty much the most adorable little thing ever!
omg i want it so bad
Fake. This went around Tumblr before. This is actually a puppy of a different breed. This is what an actual Pomeranian/Husky crossbreed may look like.
Also, please do not attempt to crossbreed a male Husky and a female Pomeranian. This may hurt the pom really badly.
Crossbreeds do not always look a specific way - one may look completely different from the other. Please don’t think you’ll get the above puppy if you get a real Pomsky - you won’t.
Yeah because comics printed on paper aren’t ever delivered in chapters or volumes or otherwise broken up into small chunks or anything. Nope, they’re always completely finished and then released all at once.
The internet, lacking the need for printing, just makes it easier - and more advantageous, even (instant feedback!) - to break updates down into even smaller pieces, e.g. one page at a time (or even one panel at a time).
Comics aren’t books or movies. They aren’t closed mediums that absolutely need to deliver a large chunk of story at once (because even books and movies will be broken down into parts if the story is too long). Some comics run for over ten years, are you suggesting the authors should spend ten years working on the comic before publishing it? And in the meantime they’ll survive how, photosynthesis? Delivering the story in pieces allows for building a steady fanbase as the comic grows and allows the author to actually make money while they make their story without needing to pitch it to a publisher.
Or, if it’s a hobby, it’s a more informal, easier method of updating.
Losing interest, falling behind and losing track of the story can happen with any kind of long-running story, it’s in no way exclusive to web comics, and it’s in no way related to updating as you go. It could happen even if you were planning to release the comic all at once - except then nobody would ever read the parts you did finish and that’d have been just a waste of time. Yay.
So, I just learned today that these adorable little fuzzy caterpillars are scary as hell.
You’d probably never guess that petting one can cause agonizing pain, rashes, internal bleeding, breathing difficulty, welts, or other violent reactions. Their fur is venomous spines. Look at how they purposely appear so cute and soft and make you want to touch them.
Deceptive deadly little motherfuckers.
Wow I was looking at the photos like “awwww how cute I wanna pet it” and then I read the comment and was like “oh”
I’m surprised people didn’t know about this.
Lol it went from cute to deadly in a key press of a ‘PgDn’ xD
You never, ever want to touch a fuzzy caterpillar. Any fuzzy caterpillar.
Ichiki Mitsuhiro, A B-List seiyuu in Japan was fooled into thinking he landed a part with Silver Link, a Japanese animation studio, when the whole thing was a flat-out lie, all while capturing the whole thing on camera and streaming it online. The seiyuu cast of Kokoro Connect, produced by Silver Link, had some help in the cruel prank. You can see the heartbreak in his face.
Fans and general anime watchers alike in Japan are furious. The BD reviews on Amazon.jp have been getting nasty comments, people pulling their purchases as not to support the people who did this.
Watch this video to see the recording :
It starts about an hour and half in.
Also, a Youtube link with footage of him recording fake lines:
Wow this is gross.
TBS broke unprecedented ground Sunday when they put analyst Michele Smith in the booth alongside Ernie Johnson and John Smoltz for their broadcast of the Dodgers-Braves game. It’s the first time a woman has ever served in the commentary role for a national MLB broadcast, and is one of a handful of breakthroughs in a summer that marks the 40th anniversary of the passage of Title IX.
Smith won two Olympic gold medals as a softballer, and is a member of the Softball Hall Of Fame. She’s certainly an expert on softball, having served as one of ESPN’s chief announcers for the sport, and testing her out for an MLB broadcast was an interesting idea. (It’s also one announced with surprisingly little fanfare; we only learned of the broadcast today.) Here’s baseball blogger William Tasker’s take:
She also knew what she was talking about. Her insights were usually spot on. The one awkwardness of the entire broadcast was the incessant pandering of the two men on the broadcast team to talk about or bring up Smith’s softball exploits. Such pandering was probably meant to make Smith as comfortable as possible, but it also gave the impression that such comments were needed to justify Smith’s existence on the broadcast. From a personal standpoint, during a broadcast, the less said about the broadcaster the better. Concentrate on what is going on in the field.
I’ve honestly struggled with what culture I think is worse: Video game culture or sports culture.
EXCUSE ME WHILE I FUCKING VOMIT EVERYWHERE.
I worked as a commentator in college, and whenever people asked why I didn’t pursue it professionally, I told them about stuff like this. FUCK ALL OF YOU PEOPLE.
Oh but sexism doesn’t exist anymore right guize?
Sports culture is worse (than videogame culture) because it’s more widespread tbh.
