I have now come to the point where I have had enough. I will not tolerate any more.  I am talking about the behaviour of some bloggers/facebookers, who are also sellers. Setting aside, for the time being, the amount of businesses who use Facebook as a free advertising medium, yawn.

These are terrible times we live in, and for those not directly affected by the awful disasters besetting people around the world, we are extremely lucky to be alive and well, and to not have suffered. It certainly puts into perspective any minor problems/ailments/grievances we may have.  And, no we must not forget that We feel helpless but want to help in some way, of course we do!  We need to hurry and make donations of what we can, where we can - I truly believe and abide by that.

What upsets me, and find despairing is that some people are jumping on the bandwagon and using these awful disasters to Advertise their Wares - to make money, to advertise their business and to elicit future business.  I saw one blog where the person first wrote an opening sentence about how terrible the Japanese tsunami is, then proceded to advertise an upcoming craft fair they are involved in - der?  Others tell us that if we just click on to their etsy/folksy/website shop, a certain percentage, or the profit from that sale will go towards the charity, etc.  Why can they not just make a donation, anyway, like other people do?

I am not going to encourage these people, anymore.  I remove their comments from my facebook and switch off from their blogs.

I do apologise to anyone who is offended by my view, but it is my view and if people don't like it, then they can feck off.  Yep, I feel that strongly about it.

So, Enough, Already.
