About The "Accused" Etsy Reseller Posting What I myself think are some Questionable Comments On Pinterest


Keep in mind that the person mentioned has only one "comment" here that they hadn't  deleted when I went back and "captured" the page...but the Pinterest emails....allowed those involved in this "Pin" to save all of the comments that were later deleted.....

This furniture is made from wood coated in lead paint and various biocides (poisons to discourage barnacle growth)

And the big fiasco on Etsy, where Ecologica was first interviewed as a Featured Seller, then was found out as being a reseller... How about when Etsy erased all the comments about your public outing? You know: http://www.regretsy.com/201... What's your quick answer for that?

Actually I hadn't pinned this or any of your items to my boards. It's nice to see just how maturely you handle criticism. It disgusts me that someone who behaves like a silly child made money off an ill gained Featured Seller spot on Etsy. By the way, here are all the comments on your article that Etsy tried to erase: http://neogami.com/baligate...

Baligate lol!! But this whole situation just saddens me. Some people can be so shady. I don't know how she sleeps at night knowing she is a fraud. Tsk tsk.

You said you have a certificate for lead paint, but what about the extremely toxic biocides which are put in balinese marine paint? Some of them are not even legal to use in the US on boats. Do you have a certificate for that?

The problem here is that Etsy is supposed to be for HANDMADE, Supplies, and vintage ONLY. Unfortunately Ecologica, your items are not handmade and by Etsy supporting you it has caused a complete uproar and people are now protesting Etsy by closing up their shops. It's really sad.

Not handmade by you, I should say.

No Mariana, that is unacceptable. I think that Etsy is making matters worse by silencing the community there. And a lot of people don't like that Etsy is not abiding by their own rules. My honest opinion here, I think you should revise your shop or title and put a disclaimer that the furniture is designed by you, but not made by you. But the choice is yours and I do think that this whole thing has gone WAY too far.

You have answered about the lead a few times now, but you still have not spoken about the biocides which are put in marine paint to kill algae, barnacles, etc. These are EXTREMELY toxic and there are several sources on the internet that state that the ones used in Bali are so bad that they are not allowed to be used in the US. As you are a parent, I assume you realize that children chew on furniture. So simply touching furniture would not necessarily be the extent of the interaction with the paint. What do you have that states that your furniture, or should I say Kurt's furniture, does not have these hazardous biocides?

Also, I would like to state that I think death threats and the like are absolutely unacceptable. However, I saw the coffin comment and what it said was a coffin for the death of your integrity, not the death of you.

I am not making any suggestions about whether or not you work hard. I don't see you so how would I know? But I have repeatedly ask about the biocides in the boat paint and you have refused to answer. That indicates to me that you don't know whether or not your furniture (some of which you recommend for toddlers) contains these hazardous substances. Here is a link to an article from the National Center for Biotechnical Information and US National Library of Medicine which talks about the amount of toxins left in paint chips from boats. If you research those toxins you will see that most are classified as cancer causing agents. I am not sure why you feel you would have to be rude in order to answer whether your chairs have been checked for this. It seems to me it would be a YES or NO answer.

Here is the link I forgot to put in the above: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...

Here is a link to a book available via google entitled Ecotoxicology of Antifouling Biocides which specifically discusses the toxic levels of the boats and eco systems of Asian waters. While this does not specifically discuss how this would impact humans who are sitting, touching and possibly chewing on the paint, the fact that it has contaminated the waters to such a degree that some of the paints were outlawed 20 years ago, it seems to me that direct contact would be even more toxic. By the way, can you verify that the wood from these boats are less than 20 years old? http://books.google.com/boo...

By the way, the link you provided only lists the names of companies on the Biocide council. However, it does say that the Environmental Protection Agency has formed a task force to study the long term effects of Biocides on Humans. So I think your link supports the fact that there may be serious health consequences. Why else would they form a task force to look at it?

You mentioned that you have a certificate to show that your furniture is lead free. Do you have any documentation to support that your furniture is also biocide free?
Thumbnail of Beteena Paradise

And it was specifically tested for biocides? Or was it just tested for lead. I strongly suspect that it wasn't, because if it was you would have given this answer originally. You certainly didn't hesitate to answer about lead poisoning. and it took several questions about the biocide before you said that you couldn't answer without being rude. Now you say that you had it tested. Why not just say that originally if it is the truth? It seems to be a pattern of behavior. You avoid questions and then change your answers to be the "right" ones. In future, you may want to consider just telling the truth from the beginning and then sticking with that even if it becomes inconvenient. Have a wonderful day.

Marina, you are a vile person. I guess that is why you lie to Etsy, to your sellers and in this conversation on Pinterest. And, yes, I am about 30 pounds overweight. But guess what... I am working with a trainer to lose wait and I can be thinner. You can't do anything to gain back your integrity or your honesty. And that is what you are teaching your child. So maybe it is YOU that should think about what YOU are instead of making petty comments about someone's weight. Just remember, the internet is FOREVER. Every lie you have told and every page you have been rude is saved somewhere. They will never go away. There will always be a record of the fact that you are a ugly person on the inside. I feel very sorry for you.

I'm amazed she stated she seals over lead paint with varnishes! This crap writes itself!

wow! I am truly amazed that someone being "under the microscope" is attacking someone here and judging them about weight :( .....Most people that I know are concerned about truth and honesty and that pretty much outweighs all the other issues I think !

I did. It is like I told Mariana... stuff posted on the internet is around FOREVER. And I pasted the comment about my weight on a website which we all know and love. ;-)

Btw, Mariana, let me explain to you why I am not a Cyber Bully though I do give you credit for googling to find a popular phrase. I asked you a simple question about your products. All you needed to do was answer with a simple yes or no. But instead of doing that, you ignored and then evaded the question. And then later gave the answer. People who are honest do not behave like that. They simply answer the question with the truth. They do not have to wiggle around giving an answer as you did. And had you done that, our conversation would have ended very quickly. And I would like to point out that I let you have the last word TWO days ago. I didn't bother to post again, but you decided to post again to me and insult my appearance. It seems to me that you are the one who has behaved like a bully. And even though you have since deleted it, I have a copy and copies have been posted on the internet to show what kind of a person you are inside.

Trust me. Reading it once was enough. But I knew you would probably delete it the way you deleted your other name calling statement... remember the "Confederation of Dunces?" So now even though you have deleted it, others can read it. Oh and by the way it is CONFEDERACY of Dunces.

Beteena, I wonder if there will be a C written to you regarding this?

By her? If so she will probably delete it like she deleted the others. But you know what? There are not enough f--ks in the world for me to give a single one about her. LOL! Have a great weekend, Karie.

I did, Mariana. I am up to 8 images of screenshots. Care to make it 9 with more evidence of your lack of maturity and common sense?

Lol! Screen captured that one! I win! I also love the email notification setting Pinterest has, so regardless of its deletion, I have every email of the posts! CF4L! This is so sad, yet funny, yet sad.

The person on this link was actually accusing the other of Cyber bullying :)  and then removed all of their posts????  Hmnnn...things that make you go WOW?!!!!....I am sure that this recent spotlighted  "Etsy featured seller"  is in a place where she is indeed very defensive these days....but you certainly don't make or score points by having the attitude that I witnessed tonight!.... and by the way....
I have never met any of the other posters on this link prior to this eve!
