I demand that my work be withdrawn from your site immediately. I enjoy a good laugh, but this is ridiculous. I have made 15 sales in 24 hours and I am inundated with requests for custom work. How dare you do this to me. You have ruined my life. I have received over 4000 views on my store since yesterday and I am furious. I have taken down my store. I hope you are pleased with yourself, this is a terrible thing you do. You will be hearing from my lawyers.
I’m not sure if you linked to my Etsy page. Someone linked from your blog to my site and it seems to have generated some sales, so thanks, keep it up. Your blog is a new low point of negativity and solipsism. You have the critical power of an insecure 8th grader. You have set your self up as an arbiter of taste, which seems like a precarious place for someone such as yourself. I’m sure you take delight in receiving negative email, so I hope this make your day.
Have you no dignity? if you would rein in that comment section you might be able to save this yet. You’ve got to grasp the idea that your concept is flawed and the whole regretsy thing CAN be salvaged. Maybe you could do a serious book on the lesson you’ve learned from this project from a spiritual standpoint and how you felt this was nessessary to put food on your table. Its not too late, tell them Random House people you want to take the project in a different direction–if they don’t buy it, then fuck ‘em. Print it yourself. But please discontinue raping my dream and try to get back in touch with your moral center.
YOUR LINKS TO ETSY ARE ILLEGAL … YOU KNOW YOU HAVE COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS AND YOU ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO BE NASTY AND MEAN SPIRITED WHICH IS ILLGEAL…YOU HAVE INDIVIDUALS BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF ETSY THAT YOU PAY TO SEND YOU IMAGES. AND I AM NOT FINISHED…EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE ADVISE HOW TO DEAL WITH YOU FROM A LEGAL ASPECT.
LAST WORD IS MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am reporting you to Etsy and to my lawyers…I would not have cared about your opinion if it were just directed towards the image. But people are saying deflamatory things and they dont know me. And not put down anyone, but does is any these people have a formal education? Rather than argue maybe I should investigate this for criminal perspective…because commentary and critique are not in the same category as verbal assault. I would feel better if you made me an offer.
I am sending a formal letter to Random House demanding that they broaden the scope of this publication to also include the comments from your blog and the underlying implications…and I think they should provide comphensation to the artist andget someone more qualified to write the Regretsy book. I believe your intent is to ruin ETSY artist for what ever reason and that retribution should come to you in the form a lawsuit by ETSY and by FACEBOOK and others you have harmed and that the artist should recieve restitution because the individuals who’s comments and critique which are posted on your site, are NOT credible by academic standards or those identified in Webster’s Dictionary.
Be advised the I have reported you to the Chicago and Atlanta Police Department and will proceed with civil actions against you and those who are working on your behalf.
Why did you remove my commints?
I didn’t remove your comments. I didn’t publish them because I think people will make fun of your spelling errors, and I think that will upset you. – HK
I don’t know what spelling errors you are talking about I use spell check and check the grammar so unless you spell differently than Microsoft word. You think you are so perfect! This is the last second that I will waste of my time on the likes of people like you and those who post on your site you all are ignorant and will remain that way because you won’t bother to learn anything… before you spout off. Remove my photo at ounce!
Did you happen to notice I’ve closed my Etsy store? This, only days after Regretsy.com invited hundreds of people to personally mock my artwork. Because of Regretsy.com I’ve decided I want nothing to do with Etsy if it colludes with a site which basically does nothing more than denigrate and bully non-conventional artists for the sake of hitcount and profit. That kind of conformity enforcement is almost as sickening as the raw meat atmosphere of Regretsy.com’s comment streams.
I also do not give you the right to reproduce this correspondence.
The link to my shop on Etsy is mine and copyrighted to me. I do not give permission to anyone to link to me. Since this is a copyright infringement you better remove it as soon as possible. And don’t try that “fair use” business, because fair use is only for edducational purpose presented in an institution of higher learning and not for entertainment purposes.
I was informed by a woman who saw my piece on your site and bought it. You actually made me money with your little smear campaign. It had the opposite result of what you expected!
Do you ever consider the damage you do to people? It’s only a matter of time before your site pushes people in the direction of suicide and then I bet you mormons will have a really good laugh.
You are an ugly, insufferable, hag bitch. I hope and pray that one day you grow up and stop making hurtful comments.
