etsy not for auctions

This morning while perusing the forums I noticed lots of sellers still using their ebay descriptions which include the words "auctions", "bids" and when "bidding". I am not sure why it bothers me so but it just feels like someone is muddying up my turf. I like the fact that etsy.com is a place where you see something you like and you buy it. You don't pay crazy prices because you are in a bid war and you don't offend a craftsperson by getting something for a lot less than it is worth.
Many of these sellers have many items and would find it cumbersome to edit them but I appreciated the time one would take to sell on ETSY. I will not buy from a seller who keeps auction terms in their descriptions. I know I need to lighten up!

I think you're absolutely right. If they want to auction, they should use ebay and not mention the auction on etsy.

Thanks for visiting my blog :)
