One thing I hate about E is now starting to happen here. Sellers are mislabeling items, possibly to get more eyes, and it makes it harder for the rest of us.  A pair of fuzzy pink earmuffs with bling is not unisex. A totally crocheted scarf should not have knit in the title. A multicolored anything is not what a buyer wants when they type in RED. Yarn that is 20% alpaca is not alpaca yarn. I realize that search needs much improvement, but please, people, be honest when you are listing something! Pretend YOU are the buyer! Make it easy for the REAL buyer to find you.

............  and anything that is printed is NOT an original piece of art

Report them to Artyah.  A lot of search problems are caused by incorrect listing terms

JustMeToo copywriting is used in so many of the listings on here.  Like on "E", they probably won't get caught for a long long time.  A lot of the sellers just "chance" it knowing it takes a long time before they are caught.  One shop has about 10 on their first page of shop.  Who am I to judge?  I tried once to turn them in but it turned out to be a long drawn out ordeal so I gave up.  It was not a simple procedure.

I was under the impression that if we reported the copyright infringements to Craig, that he would put a stop to them.  I reported twice, and he didn't even have the grace to respond.
These people get away with it because the powers that be aren't doing anything to stop it, even when they know about it.  After all, it's still money received for listings, I suppose.
skydove - where you say "who am I to judge" - I think we DO have a right to judge - in the name of fairness to all, and a cohesive, and friendly site, without this type of resentments.  We want an even playing field!

Does anyone else feel that all these healing stones etc (currently having a conversation with someone on G+ about what their stones actually heal) are also misleading.  Stones make pretty jewellery, all the other claims made for them under the guise of - "I believe, I feel, it is said, there are claims" - are just a load of obfuscation and mumbo jumbo. 

When someone is selling something I want to see the details of the actual object and what I will physically be receiving if I purchase it, I don't want a handful of meaningless promises that will never come to pass.

Edited to add the missing word "never" in last line

Christine, I agree with you wholeheartly.  Unless it is proven, why should they be able to sell?  Aren't these false claims?  I love stones and they are beautiful but don"t lie just to sell one.  People are vulnerable and they will buy when presented these false claims.

Christine.  I agree with you as well!  I always roll my eyes when I read claims like this, but people who aren't well, are sometimes willing to try anything.  This is very sad. 
It is emotional blackmail, and shouldn't be allowed at all!

I totally agree. Well said,

Nice to see I am not the only one who feels like this.

I've edited this post and removed my post below it. Have had wine now, lol, and will try to respond in a more appropriate manner, although I do not believe the above posts from others bashing other people's shops, items, and spiritual/religious beliefs are appropriate for a sales-venue forum (or any forum, for that matter).

Both Hinduism and Buddhism (well known religions) have items that are commonly used in their spirituality and are made of natural objects (including stones) that are believed to have healing properties to the subtle bodies. "Western spirituality" and "yoga spirituality" both also follow that belief (not everyone does yoga just for exercise - there are religious/spiritual elements to it). You may not personally believe in the properties of stones/seeds/woods anymore than I personally believe there are angels with wings and harps waiting to come to my aid, but I would not publically bash your items, shops, or personal religious/spiritual beliefs should you decide to sell angel-related items. Think what you want of my spirituality in private, but I do not expect to come on here and read people making fun of it and accusing it (and thereby me) of "emotional blackmail."

Unless ALL spiritual/religious items are banned from sale on Artyah (which I don't believe they are), then please do not bash my personal belief system or what I sell. If your religion/spirituality/beliefs differ, then don't buy my stuff. But don't bash it on a forum that is visible to the public and please try to be tolerant of other people's spirituality and/or religions.

I realize the posts were just an innocent discussion about something you guys don't personally believe in, and not aimed at me or my shop or my potential customers (who can see this), but it was still a horrible thing to read and rather unkind in general.

I thought very carefully beforehand about writing as it was bound to upset someone but I do not feel it is "bashing" other people's beliefs.  If a customer believes that crystals/stones/oils/herbs and spices will do something for them they will seek them out, for those looking for help for a health or mental condition then the benefits claimed for them may be life threatening if taken at face value and medical help is not sought.   It is the labelling not the items that bother me.

With some of the items I have seen I feel the descriptions (not the items) fall under the prohibited item list which includes
  • Health care - life changing products
  • Medical drugs, devices, and healthcare

I don't list items as healing the physical body, although I do personally believe in that philosophy of healing. The posts in this thread made fun of, and accusations of, anyone who happens to believe that natural materials can hold healing properties. Many people who buy stone jewelry also believe in that healing philosophy - the belief dates as far back as the Vedas or farther, and it was written about in the Vedas. I don't think it is appropriate to bash that belief on the forum.
