Etsy.com has recently made all users' real names and purchase history available on the web. They can be searched from google (I checked). They are also refusing to contact buyers to alert them to this change. They do allow names to be changed, but only with a two day waiting period. There is a thread on their forum about it herehttp://www.etsy.com/teams/7718/site-help/discuss/6811996/page/1 where they have refused to respond to serious concerns for customer privacy. Since Etsy is refusing to notify its' members, please help me get the word out to them by posting on your website/blog.
I realize this has nothing to do with games, gamers, or Penny Arcade, but I've noticed Penny Arcade fans take notice of privacy violations before, so I hope you'll forgive me for making such an off-topic post. Thank you.
