I thought about doing some type of magick on the guy who started that post on the other forum, as a way to show him too that yes it is real. Maybe send a demon to him to have a little scare, then when I am told he was visited by the demon, contacting him the next day thru a PM and saying "by the way how did you sleep last night, any…insert a personal detail here that only he should know about to further alarm him. That kind of thing works well. The guy accused me of being a scammer (some parts of the conversation were left out for length concerns) when I don’t even sell spells online. Spell kits, yes I do list some on occasion but I’m not promising results to anyone, if they buy a spell kit they are admitting that they do magick and are capable of doing the magick themselves without my help. So how is that the same as paying someone to cast a spell for you? It’s not.
I do sell handmade metaphysical items but I stopped fooling with etsy a while back anyway. They were manipulating search results and are no longer strictly handmade and vintage. Honestly, this conversation has been going on for over a week now but I finally had to chime in when that guy made a comment about everyone selling magick based items being scam artists.
I did make a comment on yet another site towards the pagans. I said you all are complaining yet not one of you will lift a finger to rebuttal at all. You will not protest, take this to court, place a curse on the etsy owners, no, you will sit back and watch your money making efforts dwindle to a hault. Why, because in your opinions, goddess forbid karma come back on you for standing up for your legacy, your income, and your personal rights. So I don’t even fool with etsy anymore, I am just upset because this is pure discrimination and not one of the wiccans is going to do a thing to stop it. However, what is supposed to be banned keeps being changed so no one knows what extent etsy will take this to, but if they follow thru eventually Amazon will too.
If they think, oh it worked like a charm and no one tried to stop us, then what’s to stop them and eventually all other online selling marketplaces from banning everything magickal in the future? Luckily, my main base of operations where I sell online every day, that sites very mission is not to follow in the footsteps of ebay or etsy. But it wouldn’t be hard to evoke a demon and send them etsy’s way. Even though this is not affecting me, if something isn’t done, this could prove eventually fatal for all who sell magickal items. On the other hand, this could be a good thing. It will eliminate some competition since everyone & their mother seems to be selling metaphysical items these days, and all from the same drop shippers. Maybe get some of them gone, then business will continue to thrive for those of us who have been around much longer than they have?
