I got a little snarky with someone in an email just a few minutes ago.
They signed up a couple of months ago, didn't get a sale. I said sometimes it takes a little time to establish yourself in a new venue. Then she came back with, maybe on your site but I went to @^@^@^&@ and made sales right away LOL.
Honestly? Do some people have their head so far up their butt that they really cannot see the light of day?
So I told her that maybe you should stay at %$^%^ as I did not find humor in your statement. We've put too much work into this to be insulted.
Calming Down Now....
I really do not know what is happening in society now a days, are there really that many a**holes out there?
I guess so. SAD.
I was on another forum yesterday, a very large forum, of artists that specialize in a certain style. I was private messaged 3 times by members offering apologies by how some of their members act.
Again I'm posting in a thread about us, being helpful, answering questions and felt like I was on trial to an extent. In general everyone was decent and some nice and very appreciative that a marketplace owner would come on their forum and actually listen, actually consider their recommendations for a new category.
But other members were so worried that I would be insulted, that they actually messaged me to apologize in advance for the abrasiveness of some.
We have many seasoned sellers with us, they know the ropes, they know the work that goes into these things. But then we have those that, I hate to say it, but I'm glad that they leave. If your attitude sucks and you want something for nothing, I fear for your businesses success.
Everybody is 10 feet tall and muscle bound behind a keyboard, would love to meet some of these people on the street and see how tall they are. Honestly on the street they are probably the sweetest around but behind the keyboard WATCHOUT
Steps off soapbox and now sipping some coffee.....
