I still don't think it counts as "calling out" if you're pointing everyone else to blatant resellers. they should be happy we're finding all these accounts for them - it makes the whole site look bad if at the top of the front page it says "Your place to buy & sell all things handmade" and then you scroll down and see plasma tvs for sale.

So much for "freedom of speech". AND to make it so you can not change your avatar?! Sellers use their avatar to promote their shop so they are taking something HUGE away from you! ARGH!

Well, at least the shops are shut down...a great sacrifice to keep etsy honest! But a month seems a bit much. argh!
