AprilMarieMai says:

you know exactly what you're doing with this thread and it makes me ill.

you said something negative about another user with identifiable hints. that is calling out.

look, i wanted to help and that's why i took the time to respond to you. but i have other things to do, and i'm not looking to waste my time helping someone who doesn't want help. if you don't want to listen to us then why ask us about anything?

What I just read this thread with my mouth wide open! Good gracious AprilMarieMai, is there a reason you went all psycho on the OP for asking a simple question?

The OP was nothing but polite and respectful. They certainly didn't deserve insults and told they broke the rules umpteen times by you. (Is insulting another Etsian also breaking the rules?)

You're combativeness in the forums is escalating. It's almost as if you're under the influence when you post. Or you suffer from delusions of grandeur.

Good Gawd, you better take a chill pill and a forum break before you get the boot.

Hmmm...seems there were others in that thread who were getting a bit tired of the explaining things to the OP, and who agreed with AprilMarieMai's posts as well...but nowhere did I see anyone going "all psycho" as you put it, calpix.

This isn't the first time I've seen you here complaining about AprilMarieMai and trying to make it seem like she's so much more outrageous & "combative" than any other poster.
Maybe you are the one who needs to take one of your suggested chill pills. It's obvious that you have an issue that's getting the better of you, and you're starting to look silly. Take care, now.

Well Janine, AMM is the only one who got all dramatic telling the OP she knew exactly what she was doing when she started this thread and that her thread made her ill. WTF?? (This wasn't after a heated discussion with the OP, this was her FIRST response to the OP at the top of page 2??? Seems psycho to me.)

She then threw a tantrum a few pages later telling the OP that they wasted her time trying to help them when they didn't want help. The OP tried to discuss, but you don't discuss anything with AMM, you're expected to listen and obey. Her way or the highway, end of story.

In my opinion her unhappiness with Etsy is overflowing into her interactions with anyone in the forums that she doesn't agree with. There's a tactful and polite way to get your point across without being condescending and creating the drama that she seems to crave.

If she doesn't agree with someone and they don't fawn all over her with compliments or shower her with thanks and praise she acts extremely irrational.

Maybe that or she's just always been a bossy bitch.

Thanks for your response, good day to you.
