  • Etsy's social media DIY-saster

    When we used to think about dystopian Big Brother scenarios, the horror stemmed from an invasion of our personal lives by an all-seeing, all-knowing secret police. Who would have guessed that it would actually be free-market capitalism that exposed your secret love of extra large leather bondage cuffs to the entire world?

    But that's exactly what happened when Etsy.com

    The school girl in me finds it hilarious and I immediately want to find out if I know of any these plug purchasers but (excuse the pun) I might think somewhat differently if I was one of them. I didn't realise such items were sold on Etsy and I suspect those sellers might see their shop visitor numbers go up in the next few days!

    Seriously though, bad call from Etsy, tisk tisk!

        And there was me wondering why there was a picture of bondage cuffs at the top of the article . . . . .

        Fortunatly for most things I am Mrs Silver Thistle-Beads when it comes to filling in box's ! - and no you wont find me on any of the afore mentioned "plug" searches either before anyone looks ;P

            Now it makes sense! I always look at the search strings that people use to visit my web site and just the other day I showed OH the most 'unusual' which was candy floss dichroic 'thingie' they used the real word! (which I don't sell btw) I didn't even know they would be made of glass, let alone dichroic glass, but judging by the article Etsy is the place to find such things - alas I am now of course too scared to go and even see what a candy floss one would look like in case I am forever tagged for my curiosity!
