But I’m siding with SkyeB… (please remember she is on vacation ATM).

My main reason is that the buyer BOUGHT IT KNOWING THAT SHIPPING WAS BEING CHARGED. Also, first class and parcel post both take a month to AK, if it was that important the buyer should have bought priority shipping.

SkyeB (the seller) claims the listing was for 7oz, not 8oz, and that she didn’t claim free shipping. (I can’t seem to find the listing.) If you find the listing, I will post it here.

Spots corner ?

First, I have a buyer leave me my first negative because she’s mad that the listing charged her shipping and that the package is on a barge in AK on the way to her. NOT MY FAULT. Anyway I’m not even upset about it. I kind of find it funny that this is even an issue. OH and the yarn hasn’t been delivered yet, so she has left Negative FB w/out even seeing the package. lol!

I would however like to block her from doing this to me again in the future. How can I block her from my future spots transactions?

Buyer left negative feedback because she was pissed off about paying shipping charges. There was no free shipping offered. She left negative feedback w/out even receiving the item. She never contacted me regarding shipping charges or being upset about the item taking a longer time to get there. Further more she never contacted me letting me know the item was shipped wrong. There was a mistake in paypal’s multiorder shipping. I selected the wrong amount. I would have been more than willing to correct the mistake but once again never was contacted.

I forgot to add there was not any missing yarn. She DID not purchase 8 oz. I rec’d notification that she had left final negative feedback when I opened my email account.

Submitted on 2009/03/04 at 1:01pm

Ok one last thing. This is the email that she sent to me yesterday afternoon after leaving feedback:

i thought you would like to know that i finally received my yarn today. imagine my surprise when it said, right on the mailing label, that the package weighs 2lbs even. here is the picture that i took, just for you. so, now what is your reason behind sending it parcel post

Yes, I made a mistake. Obviously I wouldn’t ship it at 2lbs rather than 10 oz on purpose seeing as this charges me more money. You can see however that there is nothing in the email stating that she DID not recieve all of the yarn that she bought or anything else that she is hoping for a resolution from me. She is lying on the post on DS. Ok, I’m off to take a shower and head to the Animal kingdom today.

is my math wrong? what would you do?

on february 6, i purchased 8oz of yarn off of spot’s. i paid $3 for first class shipping. when, two weeks later i hadn’t received it, i checked the shipping notice and realized the package had been shipped parcel post instead of first class. the mama claims the package was too heavy to go first class. i finally just today received my very light package. the mama put that it weighed TWO POUNDS on the label! i am going to borrow my friend’s postal scale, so i can get an exact weight, but here is the package, the label (no names/addresses showing), and the COMPLETE contents. there was nothing but the yarn in the package.i am angry because i bought this yarn for a particular project, and because she didn’t ship in the manner stated, the yarn took A MONTH to get here, leaving me too little time for what i wanted to do.

the yarn label, showing the weight of the yarn (only 7oz, btw, not 8)

Here are the emails over the transaction:

hi, mama.  i just got the shipping notice for the happathy yarn i purchased from you, and i was wondering if you were going to refund the $3 shipping i paid, since your listing says that the yarn was $35ppd.

thanks,

The ppd is a mistake

NO OTHER COMMUNICATION WAS SENT OR RECEIVED UNTIL NEGATIVE FEEDBACK WAS LEFT (Yarn was not received yet): (Also, the difference in yarn amounts was NEVER discussed.)

dragynflye@hotmail.com has left negative feedback for order number 20984. You can respond to this feedback via your order history page. The buyer will then have the opportunity to remove the negative comment. Both the buyer’s feedback and your response will be viewable via your feedback page.

Subject: did you ever stop and think?

That maybe your first email that you say you sent after you bought the yarn didn’t go through?  and that you weren’t ignored?  Did you ever stop and think that the 2nd email was answered very quickly??  Did you ever stop and think people have a life outside of the internet?  I was in the hospital for 3 days for my latest round of chemotherapy.  I come up to over 1,400 emails in my in box.  EVERYONE got short reply’s, they weren’t rude.  The reply was short and to the point.   The listing charged shipping it was not ppd.  I did not email you after the purchase and demand $3 for shipping.

If you wanted to work something out you would have emailed me and voiced your questions, instead you leave negative feedback and want to come to a resolution.  Uh no.  Once you’ve left feedback the seller has no incentive to come to a conclusion.  This situation makes me sick.  I’ve never met anyone in almost 2,000 transactions online that handles things like this.  It’s very disappointing.

no, i never considered that my first email didn’t go through, since i contacted you through spots corner, and you obviously received my purchase information.  i did stop and think that people have a life outside of the internet, which is why i waited for two days, until after i received my shipping notice, before contacting you again.  yes, i did notice that my second email was answered very quickly, i am glad you didn’t add an “i’m sorry”, it might have delayed it another two seconds.

i read the listing, saw the price, stated IN THE LISTING as $35ppd.  i scrolled straight down to the buy it now button, and went straight to paypal to pay.  i didn’t realize until i was in the process of paying you (immediately upon purchase) that i was being charged a different amount than the listing stated.  since i was already in the process of paying you, i finished and then immediately contacted you.  it was a friday evening, so i fully planned on waiting until monday to contact you again if i hadn’t heard from you.

i did pay for shipping, on an item that was listed as postage paid.  i understand there was a mistake in your listing and you handled the situation poorly.  i would have sucked it up and let the $3 refund that i requested go, if you had actually shipped the yarn first class, since that is what i paid for.  you claim it was too heavy to ship first class.  you said that i should become more familiar with the usps before leaving feedback.  i am familiar with the usps.  i know that up to 14oz can be shipped first class.  i only purchased 8oz of yarn.  an envolope (or even small box!) and a label does not weigh 5oz.  YOU chose to ship my package parcel post, without contacting me first.  YOU chose to ship in a manner different than listed.  YOU are at fault for the fact that i am still waiting on yarn i purchase more than two weeks ago.  if the price for the yarn had been postage paid, as the listing stated, and YOU had chosen to ship parcel post, i wouldn’t have had much of a say in the matter, since i didn’t pay for shipping.  however, i DID pay for shipping, and i paid for first class shipping.

i truly am sorry for your illness, i cannot imagine what it is putting you and your family through.  however, you should not be using that as an excuse for poor business practices.  yes, i know that sounds cold, and i am sorry.  but you knew you were going to be receiving chemo, it’s not like it was an unexpected occurance.  if it was going to effect your ability to do business (which your email makes it sound like), then maybe you should have waited until you were recooperated before listing your items.

Um no!  My illness has nothing to do with this except I get a lot of emails.  Answering  emails from people over an issue like shipping does not need to take my time.  The listing clearly charged shipping.  It was not ppd as you are stating.  Shipping was clearly marked in the listing.

Talking to you is as productive as talking to the wall.  By leaving feedback before you even receive the item you lost all bargaining power.  You used negative feedback as a means of trying to get your own way.

You honestly think that I would ship your item Parcel post when it could ship First class.  I would take a longer way and more expensive way to get there out of spite.  Spite for what?  I had to pay almost $3 more for shipping this way.  WHY would I do that if it could ship first class.

    Why would it have mattered if Skye had put that the package weighed 2 lbs? The buyer still only paid $3, which is accurate for 8 ozs of yarn.

  2. naturalmamadot says:

    its way too early for me to be trying to think….I have no idea why anyones upset in this situation haha Ill drink some coffee and read it again I suppose:mrgreen:

  3. naturalmamadot says:

    😉

  4. naturalmamadot says:

    Ohh okay well I can see being pissed if im SkyeB but there chick sounds out of it

  5. Spangle says:

    I think the other chick’s reasoning about getting her knickers in a wad over Skye putting 2lbs was that it made the package more than 13oz meaning it didn’t get sent FC and went Parcel instead.

    I dunno, either way it was Skye who paid the shipping anyway so I don’t know why she should be refunded shipping??

  6. DSDM2 says:

    Yeah, but FC and PP both can take a month or more… not to mention it was 3 weeks, not a month.

  7. cdmd1023 says:

    Skye is a good honest person, she wouldnt do anything to try to piss someone off or purposely select a longer shipping time, even FC shipping can take that long.

    IM am curious to hear Skye said 2lbs instead of 10 or so oz, don’t you manually type in the weight?

  8. eeek says:

    WTF. Buyer’s insane. She didn’t pay any extra for shipping, FC takes the same amount of time as parcel, they are essentially interchangeable, I’ve used both lots & lots of times. Hell, priority usually takes the exact same amount of time as either of them too. Woman has bitch issues.

    What is it about DS that brings the crazies out of the woodwork to complain about stupid crap for ((hugs))?

  9. cdmd1023 says:

    wow, sorry, that last sentence makes no sense.

  10. what.ever says:

    pretty yarn though

  11. DSDM2 says:

    Skye posted that it was an error in multi-shipping on PP, she selected the wrong box.

  12. janell says:

    i think the buy is mad because if the package said the correct weight it would have gone first class mail instead of parcel post and she would have gotten it sooner. but i agree she seems wacko anyway. i’ve shipped to alaska quite a few times and first class only took a little over a week, parcel post was like 2 1/2 weeks. not a huge difference.
    Maybe she is having buyers remorse…isn’t that usually the case?! lol

    ~Yea this sounds like it might be the case. Either way, the buyer is stupid

  14. DSDM2 says:

    #12, but the thing it, FC CAN take over a month. There is no guarantee. Esp. to Alaska.

    However, if it was THAT much of an issue to get it on time, she should have paid for Priority.

    And leaving negative feedback before the item got there, and before talking to Skye, (who is on vacation and her Siggie says so) is bull shit.

    There is nothing to refund to her. Skye paid the shipping, there was no over charge or anything, I’m just not sure what this mom expects.

  15. cdmd1023 says:

    but even if she hit parcel, she still had to type in 2lbs.

  16. DSDM2 says:

    #15, no you don’t, you select a weight range, and it auto picks the shipping method. You have to change it from parcel to priority.

  17. saslewis11 says:

    Nope, when you use PP’s Multi Order system its a pull down tab…No typing of numbers involved when you’re entering the weight…

  18. DSDM2 says:

    It looks like Skye would have paid over 5$ maybe more to ship it parcel post, so it isn’t like she saved money.

  19. cdmd1023 says:

    oh, ok. I dont ship that was often so I wasnt sure.

  20. cdmd1023 says:

    can we talk about how awesom that yarn is?

  21. DSDM2 says:

    It is drool worthy.

  22. janell says:

    i wonder how much she paid for the yarn

  23. Yup says:

    2 lbs is the next weight range up from first class (1.1 oz – 2.0 lbs) DId the bitchy buyer weigh the packaging too? I can’t believe she’s bitching about the buyer selecting too much postage. I’m so sick of getting UNDERPAID shipments and having the foot the bill to my carrier to get my stuff.

  24. kjo says:

    The issue began before the package was shipped. The buyer told me that the text of the listing said “__ppd”. And she checked out and realized afterward that there was shipping tagged on. So she emailed the seller to ask for a shipping refund since it said so in the listing. The buyer refused and then the shipping method became a separate issue.

    FCM to AK does not take 3 weeks. FCM is 2-9 days. The PO has told me that FCM and Priority are interchangable. Parcel post, on the other hand, takes an entirely different route to AK and takes much longer. That is where this issue lies for the buyer. She paid for FCM (after the listing stated ppd), and wanted it shipped FCM, *not* Parcel. And the weight of the package should have been 8 ounces and therefore gone by FCM. I don’t think she’s being unreasonable to want what she paid for.

  25. DSDM2 says:

    Your PO is mistaken. FCM to AK can take 1-4 weeks with no guarantees. PM is not interchangeable with FCM.

    The buyer bought the item knowing shipping was right there on the page. That was her choice.

  26. DSDM2 says:

    SkyeB is an awesome seller, she has over 340 positive transactions on DS, she is much loved there, and has been through hell over the last few years. I see this as a buyer issue, not seller. Really.

  27. Tori says:

    If I paid for First Class and my stuff was sent parcel I’d be pissed too. I think most of us would be

  28. janell says:

    i’m so tired of hearing people say that FCM and PM mail is interchangable!? seriously people, if it was interchangable it would be the same price.

  30. Biggirlpanties says:

    FCM to AK can take up to four weeks but usually 2-3 weeks according to my PO. I felt bad about a package i was sending (and i UNDER charged for postage) so I sucked up the extra few dollars and sent it priority. either way shipping to AK from most places is not 2-9 days.

  31. cdmd1023 says:

    #28- would be too, but peiple make mistakes. FCM can take long, she should have asked for priority if she had to have it right away.

  32. DSDM2 says:

    Janell, it isn’t in the lower 48, but it is to AK.

    AK is a different bag of chips so to speak.

    FTR, Skye is not a friend of mine. I am going by what we know of her from DS and from her FB.

  33. Tori says:

    #32. I understand people make mistakes and I agree that if it was timely Priority probably would have been a better choice. From what I understand the communication from the seller to the buyer wasn’t very nice and I don’t think that helped the situation in any way. I have had a transation with Skye in the past and had no issues FWIW

  34. Tori says:

    And just to throw this out there- I recently sent 3 packages to Alaska FCM and all were received within 5 days

  41. 2dogs says:

    Just send me the yarn. Heck, I’ll pay for priority shipping, no matter to me. Problem solved. 😉

  42. Tori says:

    LOL DSDM2

  43. screenname says:

    If she needed it that fast, why didn’t the buyer offer to pay the extra couple dollars to make it priority?

  44. ArmywifeinAK says:

    As someone who has lived in Alaska for 16 years and runs a webstore I can say that we are not a foreign country we aren’t even as remote as everyone wants to believe. Shipping first class most items from the larger cities only takes several days coming in and out, definately less than a week. Priority is faster and parcel post takes forever b/c as stated it has to wait for a barge. If the buyer paid for FC postage she should have gotten it. As a seller, common sense should kick in when you see 8oz of yarn show up as to heavy for FC when you know you can ship up to 13oz at that rate. She even admitted she clicked the wrong box causing the error, so I don’t really see how the buyer is crazy when there was obviously an error on the seller’s part.

  45. piratebaby says:

    I dunno. I live in interior AK, sometimes packages get here fast, sometimes it takes a while regardless of shipping method. seems the buyer should have bought a bit further in advance, especially being in ak. and idon’t understand why she can’t still use it?
    nak

  46. ArmywifeinAK says:

    There’s a big difference between interior Alaska and the larger cities.

  47. notyourmama says:

    The listing said ppd. Buyer should have scrolled down and read the full post but probably didn’t bother looking for the shipping prices because in her head, it was ppd. So then she finds she paid for first class. and instead it gets shipped parcel.
    Seller should have contacted her and told her it needs to be sent parcel and give the buyer the option to pay more for first class.
    If the seller had done that instead of changing the shipping option without informing the seller, buyer could have told her 2 lbs sounds stupidly high for 8 oz of yarn, too.
    If you effed up the shipping fee, eat it or talk to the buyer about it. that’s what I would, and have, done.

  48. it's me says:

    in all the time i have lived here, i have NEVER had a first class package take more than four or five days. those of you saying first class and parcel post are the same are WRONG. fc goes by plane, parcel goes by barge. it sits in washington for weeks waiting for the next barge up. in the time i was waiting for this yarn, i received packages bought much later from florida, connecticut, all over the country. i’ve received custom orders.

    what it boils down to, is i paid for first class. it should have been sent first class. she should have contacted me prior to shipping in a manner different than stated. if she had, i would have paid extra for priority. but she didn’t.

    and for what it’s worth, i DID try to contact the mama. through both spots and paypal.

  49. notyourmama says:

    oh, and all that about how long it takes if it’s sent first class. fine, first class is no guarantee it’ll get there in a timely manner, but that’s not really the point as I’m understanding it. If you pay for something, you should get it, or seller should talk to you about the problem.
    This seller/buyer issue is like the drama that doesn’t end. as soon as it seems over, another thread on there goes up about it. that’s fun stuff, there!

  53. physlet says:

    Skye is a very sweet person- I’ve dealt with her in the past- but that doesn’t mean she’s not wrong in this situation. If your listing says PPD and you tag on postage, you shouldn’t ignore and then be rude to a buyer who questions that. Then when the yarn doesn’t arrive and the buyer asks you again and is finally told you shipped 2 skeins of yarn weighing 3.5 oz each in a poly mailer as a 2 lb Parcel Post package, and you even admit your mistake, why continue being nasty and even call the buyer crazy?

    The buyer initially wanted a shipping refund because it said PPD. After no refund, she at least expected it would arrive in a somewhat timely manner since she paid for FC. When it still didn’t arrive and the seller refused to communicate with her anymore because she was “crazy”, she left negative FB. If you didn’t know the seller and this was your first transaction with her, who wouldn’t have been upset enough to leave neg FB? Also, had I been in that situation, I wouldn’t want to use the yarn anymore, either- too much drama around it, KWIM?

    I think the entire situation could have been avoided had the seller communicated with the buyer openly and admitted her mistakes instead of being defensive and even verbally abusive when those errors were pointed out to her. Again, I think Skye is a very sweet person, but even good people make mistakes.

    Yes, I made a mistake. Obviously I wouldn’t ship it at 2lbs rather than 10 oz on purpose seeing as this charges me more money. You can see however that there is nothing in the email stating that she DID not recieve all of the yarn that she bought or anything else that she is hoping for a resolution from me.

    FTR I don’t “Know” either of these ladies

  59. DSDM2 says:

    61, that is if the buyer were being truthful. Skye says it was not listed PPD, and that she was not contacted.

  60. DSDM2 says:

    Oh and the buyer is untruthful about the skeins, that it was a 7oz sale, not an 8oz

    Holy Crap is she calling that Mama for sleeping with HER husband or do I misunderstand?

  62. Tori says:

  63. notmeatall says:

    #61 I agree if it was NOT listed as PPD then I’d say you have a simple mistake with shipping, refund the 3$ and be done with it and keep your rep intact!

  64. DSDM2 says:

    but she paid over $6 to ship it, so why should she be out more?

  65. Rika says:

    First Class (13oz and under) packages do NOT take 4 weeks to get to many parts of Alaska. Parcel Post can take anywhere from 4-8 weeks depending on the time of year. I send 1 to 3 FC packages to Alaska from Hawaii a month and they normally get there within a week; longest one has ever taken is 10 days. Priority packages take almost the same amount of time.

    I like Skye a lot – I wouldn’t hesitate to buy from her. But if the package weighs less than 13oz, she messed up in that respect and the way she handled it by saying it’s not her fault that it’s on a barge, well, it IS her fault. As someone who doesn’t live in CONUS and has to wait 3-8 weeks for Parcel packages, I can understand the buyer being pissed that an 8oz package was incorrectly marked and took much, much longer than anticipated and was never notified.

    IIRC, the listing may have indeed stated “ppd” because Skye said it was a mistake (these posts are missing from the thread) and wouldn’t honor it. I never saw the listing and I think Skye deleted the listing before anyone else could confirm it said ppd, so I can’t say for sure it was there.

  66. Tori says:

    DSDM2 I think if communication was better this situation probably wouldn’t be here now

    DSDM I think she should refund shipping becuase it was supposed to go 1st class and it did not. It may have been a mistake but it is still HER mistake.

  68. itsraininghere says:

    I think both have made mistakes, and neither is owed anything.

    -Skye accidentally sent the package parcel instead of FC. She had to pay more for her mistake, and she freely admits that she clicked the wrong box or whatever. It is her fault that the package was sitting on a barge, because if she had sent it FC it would not be on a barge.

    -Buyer made the mistake of not reading the listing thoroughly and rushing to leave negative feedback for an issue that doesn’t, imo, warrant negative feedback. She still got the yarn, it is perfectly usable, she just got it later than she expected. To me, if she and Skye had spoken about it before she left the feedback, my guess is that it would be considered neutral.

    IMO, she is pissed that she was charged shipping and her anger was compounded when her yarn didn’t get to her “in time.”

    I think some of you are confused, because it seems that the way some of you are posting you think that Skye charged the buyer more for shipping than she should have, which was not the case. She charged the proper amount, then sent it parcel and had to pay more to send it parcel. I’m ASSuming that it was a total accident because why in the world would you want to charge yourself more to send something, kwim?

  69. Taterbug says:

    I can’t tell from all of this (please if I’m just not seeing it, point me in the right direction), did Skye know that she made a mistake on the shipping weight before or after the package was out of her hands? Or did she know she messed up and just sent it out anyhow so she wouldn’t have to wait for PP to refund the shipping and then re-print the label right before she left on vacation? And was she already on vacation when the buyer first tried to contact her?

    I can’t tell who is lying (or misremembering) about whether or not the listing said ppd, or whether the weight of the yarn was listed at 7 oz or 8 oz. since the original listing is not available.

  70. skye says:

    Ok I have a little bit of time right now. We are back from a boring day at the Animal kingdom and DH told me we have internet access until 4. It’s $10 a day!
    I want to correct for the record the listing did not say PPD. There was no reason for that on Spots corner. If I had listed it on DS I would have listed it like that. The buyer emailed me through spots after I printed shipping asking for a refund on shipping. She knew at that time how the package was being shipped, she made no mention of the mistkae at that time. I told her no that IF there was a ppd on the listing it was a mistake. I know however I did not put ppd in the listing but at that time didn;t feel like arguing with her. I had deleted the listing the night that I rec’d pmt. I had in the past made a mistake and relisted something when I did not have it available. I have made it a habit to delete immediately and never had a problem. I had 3 listing listed at the same time for yarn. All of the others rec’d theirs in a timely manner and no problem. The listing only had the brand, and type of yarn and the amt of yarn being rec’d. NEVER once did the buyer email asking anything from me . SHe used negative feedback as a way to try and get a refund from me. I DID screw up when I shipped it. I would obviously never send it intentionally a longer/more expensive way. I have nothing to gain from that. I have had almost 1,000 transaction on ebay and over 300 on DS. If I have screwed something up (which I HAVE) I have always corrected it once the buyer has let me know. This buyer has lied since the begining. Yesterday’s thread she adds to the story yarn that is missing in an attempt to garner sympathy. Do YOU honestly think that if she was actually missing yarn she would not have contacted me? No I get a nasty email about the shipping. Her thread has me scratching my head. I still can’t believe she had added that she only rec;d 7 oz’s when she bought 8.
    Life is short and I have no use for liars in my life. She started the thread to garner sympathy for something that didn’t happen (missing yarn). She was ticked off and you can read it on the feedback she left for me that she had to pay for shipping.

  71. itsraininghere says:

    Here it is listed on ds, marked ppd:

    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=664783

    but I can’t find the spots listing either.

  72. skye says:

    You are right #74 it was listed on ds and spots. The spots corner was listed and then came to DS and put a listing up. I’m pretty sure 90% of the sellers on DS sell things ppd but it is not that way on Spots. I either offer FREE SHIPPING or the listing charges shipping as this one did.

    This transaction was over 3 weeks ago. Spots corner doesn’t keep the listings apparently once you delete them from your spots page.

  73. skye says:

    #55 no one was abusive, the only mistake made was the method of shipping. I wil stand by that and admit mistake on that issue alone. She is making up the other issues because she’s ticked about paying shipping.

  74. Taterbug says:

    So is he yarn in question is the Nurturing Threads Harvest Rainbow, listed on DS as 8 oz? The other 2 are listed as 3.5 ounce single skeins… So the labels say 3.5 but the skeins actually weigh 4 ounces each, or is the 8 oz listing a mistake on DS?

  75. skye says:

    The yarn in question is Disco babyknits Happathy she has it pictured in her thread on DS.

  76. skye says:

    here is the picture used for the listing you can even see in the picture that it is 2skeins at 3.5 ozs a piece

  77. AshleyB says:

    Eh…who cares about the yarn drama. I want to know WTH is up with the woman sleeping with someone’s husband thing!!

  79. skye says:

    #80 where is that? That sounds nice and juicy!!

  80. Taterbug says:

    #78, thank you, somehow I missed that skeins was plural in the listing.

  81. JustPeachy says:

  85. JustPeachy says:

    Oh wtf! Is that ds mama sleeping with another ds mama’s husband????????

  86. theinvisible says:

    Maybe some cyber-sex? I’d be pissed.

  87. JustPeachy says:

    So would I. Heaven help the woman that sleeps with my husband. And my husband himself. That’s just not cool to be a homewrecker.

  88. notyourmama says:

    Here’s hoping the mods don’t get wind of this before we get anymore details.

  89. theinvisible says:

    You know this won’t last long at DS. I wonder if she is pissed enough to tell her story here?

  90. JustPeachy says:

    well shit then i shouldn’t have posted in the thread rofl.

  91. 2dogs says:

    Peach that post was classic. ROFLMBO

    “OMG WE NEED MORE DETAILS!!

    …um, that is, you know, if your willing to share and all…”

  92. theinvisible says:

    I saw that. I keep checking to see if the mama responded (either one). It was worth asking.

  93. JustPeachy says:

    Hey I didnt wanna seem like Im like TELL US NOW. If it is in fact what I think it is I feel badly for her. Its just sad 😦

  94. cheesewhiz says:

    Ok, I don’t know how many times this needs to be said, but the buyer is a wacko. Regardless of how much seller said the packager WEIGHED, if she wanted it ASAP, she SHOULD HAVE PAID FOR PRIORITY. DUH.

    I don’t think she really has any ground to stand on in this case.

  95. cheesewhiz says:

    #53 – LOL!!!! WHAT in the WORLD????

  96. firefoxrocks says:

    Huh, I always thought that FC and Priority were the same. Prioirty is just for those packages that weigh over 13 ozs. Didn’t think Priority gets it there any faster.

  97. cheesewhiz says:

    HAHA Peachy – you’re response to that mama was hilarious!!! 😉

  98. firefoxrocks says:

    Ohhh, please update if either one of those mamas answer. I don’t go to virus riddled land.

  99. ora says:

    Mama #2 has responded!!!!! (Adultery thread.)

  100. ora says:

    Moderate me!

  101. Sam says:

    #53 what’s up with that? wow wonder if anything pans out with that.

    And to the buyer…waaahh cry me a river…

    I’m sorry to hyjack a thread, but I’ve had enough. I don’t even care if I get repremanded for not playing nice.

    Amber5677 claims to be a Christian. November 07, she came to visit me… we had been online friends since our daughters were babies (4 years). My marriage was on the rocks and my husband took to her. They talked online, on the phone, and behind my back for 8 months. All the while claiming they were doing nothing wrong…. but my husband was going to her and not me. I did counselling with my husband and they both continued to lie. In May 08, my husband left to “bring back his mother to help with the baby due in June.” But what really happenend was he met up with her. I found out when he was acting all secretive again and she texted him “I miss your arms like crazy, I have yet to spot a guy since you left that measures up to how gorgeous you are.” I left 2 weeks before Baby#3 was due.

    To shorten it up, my husband still continues to converse with her. In emails, they both admitted to me that they were wrong, it was not okay and they were sorry. However, nothing has changed. They met up again just a few weeks ago, claiming they are just friends. Bull****.

    I will be divorced in June. There are alot of other details, but the story and lies are so long and twisted, this is the short version. Bascially, she’s a walking hypocrite.

  103. JustPeachy says:

    I got the screen shot of it too.

  104. noisybean says:

    I got it too, just in case. What the!? That’s wild.

  105. firefoxrocks says:

    Holy moly. That’s pretty low down. That poor lady.

  106. Monkey says:

    Wow. This is a toughie… but if the buyer left neg feedback without contacting the seller and seeing if something could be worked out, then that’s wrong.

    I hate to say it, but ultimately I have more faith in Skyeb, who has multiple hundreds of positives and who I personally have seen to be a good, decent person than someone with 11. I really do hate to be one of those “blame the noob” people… but I just don’t see Skyeb being “shady” or a “bitch” on purpose. And I think had she been contacted earlier in the transaction she would have done something to try and make things better.

  107. Monkey says:

    I meant to add that if the seller misrepresented the weight of the yarn or intentionally shipped in the wrong manner that would also be wrong.

    My honest feeling is that there were a couple of mix ups and the buyer overreacted and didn’t give the seller a chance to remedy the problem.

  108. theinvisible says:

    Wow. Forget DS, that would warrant a real life ass whoopin’.

  109. theinvisible says:

    The cheaters, that is, not the yarn!

  110. JustPeachy says:

    Um ya I agree 111. Go figure shes a Christian. Its sad that most Christian are thought of as hypocrites nowadays because of stupid asses like Amber.

  111. Biggirlpanties says:

    HO-LY-SHIT. She’s a hoooooooomewrecker. Just like the Gretchen Wilson song. LOL. I’m with 110 on this.

  112. 2dogs says:

    Holy moly.
    Poor mama. 😦 I was sort of holding out hope that it was a joke or a troll. Amber’s profile says she hasn’t been on DS in almost a week, I’m sure she has no idea this has even been posted.

    And 110 I am with you 100%.

  113. JustPeachy says:

    Wait til she comes back. I guarantee she will have a slew of pms telling her what a dirty whore she is.

  114. eeek says:

    OMG!! That’s rich even for drama-DS. Wow. The other mama’s not much of frequent poster, but she did join years ago & seems to have some normal posts from long ago & recently. Damn, I want to sit with that open to see if anything develops but I hate keeping my computer on that site ’cause I don’t want a new virus.

    Lovin’ this one way more than people bitching about stupid little crap, WAY more justified bitching if true! Hope Amber checks in soon, bet someone is running to tell her right now, doncha think?

  115. notyourmama says:

    I’d love to hear Amber’s side of this but I can’t imagine how it’ll make me see her as any less of a dirty, skanky, hypocritical homewrecker.
    That’s some nerve to do that to another woman and then to continue to hang out on the same sites.

  116. naturalmamadot says:

    ditto 117 Im sure she will be all “oh well we didnt have sex” (even if they did) either way that was totally inappropriate and WOULD deserve a RL ass kicking, Good for her for not staying with that POS.

    And Amber sweetie, I hope you get the pleasure of meeting the Karma you created very soon, hopefully WE will get the pleasure of hearing about it. Enjoy the mess youve made, I hope youre children dont find out what a skank mommy is.

    I haven’t read all of the comments but I want to weigh in. 😛 I’m on Skye’s side here too. It isn’t like the buyer paid for Priority and it was sent Parcel…and it isn’t like the buyer footed the bill for a higher amount; it would have been out of Skye’s pocket.

  131. Messy says:

    I am just nosey as to who was trying to troll, moreso than what they had to say.

  132. Terra says:

    While I don’t “know” either of them very well, I don’t think it’s necessary to “choose sides.” I think both Skye and Nikki are great mamas. Skye’s feedback speaks for itself, and I myself have purchased from her in the past. While Nikki might not frequent DS, she has been a member of the forums on Diaper Pin for over a year and a frequent poster there. As far as I know, drama does not usually surround Nikki and her transactions. I believe this is an unfortunate situation for both mamas, and I wish they could have worked it out without the drama.

    It serves as a reminder that, no matter how stellar the feedback…. buyer or seller…. that there’s probably one bad transaction bound to happen.

  133. Messy says:

    I am more on Skye’s side on this whole thing… A lot of that has to do with the huge amount of admiration I have for her! She is just amazing.

  134. Terra says:

    #138… I agree she is amazing.

    However, it doesn’t make Nikki “crazy” because they had a disagreement. They just each have a side to the story.

    I think they are both amazing mamas. 🙂

  135. DSDM2 says:

    Why is Nikki lying though? That is the main issue here.

  136. BffMama says:

    134: Me too. I’ve been scrolling through old posts trying to match up monsters. I hate pusses.

  137. DSDM2 says:

    It won’t match. She changed the name/email addie.

  138. Terra says:

    #142…. well, I hope the poster has nothing to do with either Skye or Nikki. I know I would hate it if someone was ugly on my behalf. 😦

  139. DSDM2 says:

    IF it were a friend, it isn’t Skye’s.

  140. Messy says:

    Bff, ***that is why I love you***!!! I did the same exact thing! I scrolled looking and trying to find that monster… Never did. Now DSDM2 lets us know why. We are so nosey! But ya know, this blog is as popular as it is because of us nosey drama seeking people! LOL!!!

  141. not tellin says:

    if the seller was trying to scam, why would she put the correct weight on the yarn, thus making it obvious she was scamming? Wouldnt she put 8oz if thats what she advertised, and no one would be the wiser? Im willing to bet the listing said 7oz and the buyer just assumed “full skein=8oz”

  142. try me, i'm new! says:

    #137 – yeah, that. there really didn’t need to be drama here. i’m inclined to fault the buyer more, simply b/c she apparently didn’t try to work it out w/ skye before giving neg.

    on a more important note – i vote the buyer can’t won’t use the yarn b/c the transaction soured her to them and she sells it to meeeeeeeeee. for realz, i covet that yarn.

  143. try me, i'm new! says:

    gah – should be can’t/won’t. symbol fail.

  145. DSDM2 says:

    The buyer claims she has proof on the PIN, but refuses to send it to me… what does that tell you?

  146. skye says:

    drama mama what is your email again?

  147. DSDM2 says:

    SKye, I got them, do you have the very first one (or I guess it is second one) that is being referenced?

  148. skye says:

    are you refering to the one that she said she sent to me? or the one that I sent to her first? I don’t have an email from her the day she bought them but I have the first email I sent to her.

  149. DSDM2 says:

    yes, the one that was so “short” 😉

  150. skye says:

    ok, I’ll send it over

  151. skye says:

    oh no, I don’t have that one. It might be in my deleted files but I can’t find it right now. I’m leaving in 10 minutes for the magic kingdom and lunch with the characters. If we need it I can find it when I get home. It was sent the day I printed and shipped the yarn.

  152. not just another mama says:

    I would have just canceled the label & printed a new one.. Its so much easier waiting a week for a refund then dealing with crazies.

  153. DSDM2 says:

    Skye… if she refuses to take your information down, we can put hers up here. It is a two way street. That is a violation that we don’t even broach. I would contact ADMIN at the site, is it the PIN? Let me know.

  154. Erin says:

    Wow, what’s going on? She posted Skye’s info?

  155. volbaby07 says:

  157. dmeg says:

    OMG so I HAD to go looking at the pin and while I could only see the last couple days worth of posts, its obvious that she’s been lying to everyone over there about what’s happened with this situation! She actually had the nerve to call Skye a stalker!!! WTF, seriously?!?!?!?!?

  158. skye says:

    yes and to add insult to injury she has her friends buying Goodmama’s from me at Spots Corner and not paying. Junior High anyone???

    Thank you DSMDS, I will keep you posted.
    I have emailed her to ask her to remove the offending posts. She refuses. Goes back to her Goodmama thread on the Pin and trash talks me. Now they are starting to delete posts made this evening.

    All of my info is there from the past few weeks When you BST with other mama’s there is (at least I always thought) an unspoken rule to treat them with respect. Not do something so horrible with information that was never supposed to be made public. It sickens me to think she has stooped that low.

  159. Emily says:

    she has her friends buying Goodmama’s from me at Spots Corner and not paying

    – you should leave negative feedback then. Or do what someone else did and relist them for nonpayment by xxxx. That isn’t right. I am so sorry this is happening to you. Real scammers don’t even got this kind of treatment.

  160. dmeg says:

    Damn, what a bitch! She needs to get over herself!

    I really wonder what she was planning to knit from 7oz of yarn that she still can’t knit in the 3 weeks she had between when she got it and her DD’s b-day. From looking at other posts it seems longies were the intended project, and with all the time she has to post on the pin she would have had more than enough time to knit longies had she started right away. I’ve knit 12 month size longies in 3 days and that was while still watching my two boys (both under 3) and doing everything else a mom has to do to keep her house going everyday. If she really wanted to get the project done, she could have. Instead she would rather sit around starting shit on the internet playing ‘poor poor me’.

    I’m so sorry you’re having to deal with this nonsense Skye!

    wow. I wasn’t taking a side on this one at first, because it seemed like a lot of hoopla over something minor, but I understood why the buyer would be upset. . .

    but now, i am just sick that this woman is treating skye like this! why on earth go all nutso posting personal info and such all over the place? a quick trip to ds (yea, good luck with that. . . i’m not making that trip) would easily find her username, and why do we need any more info than that?

    seriously, crazazy alaska one, NIKKI (OR NIKI?) REED FROM ANCHORAGE, ALASKA, Skye didn’t scam you. you got your yarn. What do you want, a medal for waiting for it a little longer than you expected? Here’s an idea – PLAN AHEAD! If you need something on a set date (and I’m pretty sure you knew the date ahead of time 😉 ) then buy for it with enough time that, if there are problems, they can be remedied! How’s that for logic? Although, judging by your current behavior, you are not a very logical person. Now, take your meds, hug that sweet baby girl of yours, and apologize to Skye. Or, disappear off of the diapering and momma websites so that we can all feel a little more secure about selling. Thank you!

    well, if they do, they won’t be able to pull this crap.

    at least, not more than once. 😉

  183. not just another mama says:

    REPORT HER AND HER FRIENDS. THIS IS DISGUSTING!! THEY NEED TO BE BANNED!! Who the FUCK does things like this?! That is putting YOU AND YOUR FAMILY in danger.. ANYONE,,.. ANYONE!! CAN READ THESE PUBLIC FORUMS!!! Murders, child molesters, etc. my goodness.. This makes me so pissed & I’m so sorry mama you have to deal with her.. What a fucking DIRTY LOW DOWN BITCH!!

  184. skye says:

    her posts have been deleted on the pin but she is still posting in the GM thread. People need to send emails to admin on the pin.

  185. carebear says:

    Um excuse me. The buyer is NOT wacko. You buy something paying for FC mail so that you will get it within a certain time. For some obscene reason the seller put 2lbs for 8oz of yarn so that it would go parcel post and take a MONTH to get there. WHY would 8oz of yarn weigh 2lbs. Come on now, that is just mental. It shouldn’t have weighed more than 10oz if that. FC is up to 13oz . This is NOT about the postage it is about the seller not sending the yarn the way that the buyer bought it and now the buyer can’t use it for what it was intended for!

    And I am sorry but the buyer did NOT post the sellers info ANYWHERE!!! Get your facts straight women! Maybe the seller has done this before and was recognized my another person that didn’t get stuff in a timely manner and ratted her out!! I wish you would all get your facts straight before you start taking sides and calling people names. Remember there IS another human being on the other side of that screen name.

    I know the buyer has let this situation go and the buyer should do the same. It is over!

  186. nikki says:

    ok, i wasn’t intending to post here, since i didn’t feel the need to defend myself. but what skye is posting is a flat out LIE! when she emailed me yesterday accusing me of being vindictive and spreading her personal info all over the internet, i had no idea what she was talking about, and told her. turns out, she has been searching my posts on the pin, which i do indeed find creepy. when i first started trying to figure out what was going on with my yarn, a friend asked me who i had purchased from, since she was going through a similar situation (it wasn’t the same person, btw). i told her. i used skye’s name, because it is also her spots corner name. every single time she lists an item, her name is right there for every one to see. i was then asked if it was the same person on lj, but since i had no idea, I DIDN’T ANSWER, let alone give her lj screen name! also, the mention of her name was in the middle of a thread normally frequented by a small group of friends. it’s not like i started a separate thread titled “DON’T BUY FROM SKYE BLOOME WHO LIVES AT…..”. some one seriously had to be looking to find it. i’ve also never posted her address. as you can see from the pictures in my thread above, i blocked out the names and addresses, even though i thought they were too small to see, just in case. as far as having my friends buy diapers from her and not paying… i have no idea what she is talking about. why in the world would i do something that petty? i have never once accused skye of scamming me. i have admitted, both in my ds thread, and in emails to skye, that i know she made a mistake. but she DID make a mistake, and refused to won up to it. i do feel the negative feedback was warranted, as she did not reply to my emails. it is horrible that you have dragged in a bunch of random people from the internet, who have no involvement what so ever, just because i happen to talk to them.

  187. nikki says:

    skye, what posts have been deleted on the pin?

  188. skye says:

    She has seen this thread and is livid! Calling me a liar non-stop. I AM NOT a liar. I have documented proof of what she did . I even have a screen shot saying her DH wants to hack into my computer. Apparently sharing the information she has isn’t enough she wants to post my financial information as well.

    I even asked her to take it down yesterday but she said tough!

  189. nikki says:

    skye, you never asked me to remove anything, because there was nothing to remove.

    who do i forward the emails i received yesterday to?

  190. itsraininghere says:

    Hey twat (oh, I’m sorry, totally mistyped there. I meant to say “NIKKI REED, FROM ANCHORAGE) you should post. Tell us your side. Or are you too chicken to say anything outside of the gm thread?

  191. skye says:

    She doesn’t have a side to tell. She did in fact post ALL of my personal data and the face her husband wants to hack into my home computer. I have screen shots to prove it. The posts in question have been deleted.

  192. nikki says:

    why are my posts awaiting moderation, and yet skye’s posts are going through without a delay?

  193. skye says:

    I need to say this one more time. I HAVE DOCUMENTED PROOF THAT SHE POSTED MY INFO. I have taken screen shots of everything and saved them to my computer.

  194. Brainfreeze says:

    Link them through a hosting site. Prove it dont just claim it.

  195. skye says:

    I have a reply to kthoelen:

    Yes Nicki contacted me the day I shipped. YES I responded SHE didn’t like the answer. 10 days later she leaves FB w/out any further contact. The FB was left a week before she received the item.
    YES Nicki was asked to remove my personal information yesterday. Her answer was no. What else did you want me to do?

    I have documented proof of all of it.

  196. Brainfreeze says:

    There is documented proof in this very thread of the same exact crime commited by members here. You have posted a user’s Full name and location. Should you also be banned from numerious forums? Shouldnt the same crime warrent the same punishment?

    You all seem to have jumped into the deep end here, especially when the origional person’s information..was already public domain. If you have your personnel information posted on your OWN webpage you cant really complain about anyone else posting it also.

  197. not just another mama says:

    Shes a dumb cunt.. Usually I never say things like that.. but she is the lowest.. Even people who have been scammed for real for hundreds of dollars don’t do things like that…

    See that Nikki Reed? You’re a cunt. (:

  198. skye says:

    I am worried sick over how many of the wrong people saw my address, usernames, or name on the internet. She gave enough information about my private life that any pedophile/murderer/burglar could find me and my kids. A simple search of my username would bring up past pictures of my kids. Strangers knowing I’m on chemo (which she told everyone I had cancer, which isn’t true} lets people know I’m sick and can be more of a target.

    I am physically sick today from this and have cried most of the day. NOTHING is that important to put a family in danger especially something for only $3.

  199. itsraininghere says:

    seriously! i was just thinking the same thing! why in the world would you go through all of this? psycho, much? dang. Look at the other posts on this blog, Nikki. So many other mamas have been scammed so hard, you had to wait an extra few days because of a mistake. An honest to goodness mistake. Those women don’t go around screaming personal info and having their husbands threaten to hack into computers. That’s just ridiculous. Seriously, get.lost.

  200. nikki says:

    skye, this is ridiculous. i was told by some one else that you had cancer. in one of your emails, you tried using your chemo as an excuse for not replying to my emails. if you are so concerned about your name being on the internet, CHANGE YOUR USER NAME!

    i honestly had moved past this mess. i hadn’t even thought of skye in DAYS until i got her crazy emails yesterday. i had gone on with my life, something skye should have done herself, instead of spending all of her time searching for me. it seems to me like the drama had died down, so skye felt the need to stir it back up.

    y’all can think what you want, say what you want. i have better things to do than worry about your craziness.

  201. KAL says:

    187, I wanna know who the crazy bitch is on CDN?!

  202. DSDM2 says:

    Nikki, your posts were moderated because you changed your name. When you do that, you are moderated.

  203. smithmom says:

    Man, this is crazy, but I at least the buyer is now banned on DS for “Multiple accounts~dragynflye & Brainfreeze”

  204. Brainfreeze says:

    Please check the IP addresses on the posts, they are not from the same user.

  205. GFunk says:

    Skye, if you have proof… please post it.

  206. DSDM2 says:

    Skye feel free to email it to me.

    FTR, Skye did forward me all of the emails, and so far, all I see is Nikki getting mad and rude over a mistake that Skye apologized for.

  207. itsraininghere says:

    Nikki – have you taken her personal information down?

    I would think that if you’ve “moved on” as you said, you would take her information down and truly “move on”.

    Oh, and if you could “move on” from purchasing things from spots, we would appreciate that too. 🙂

  208. DSDM2 says:

    Nikki posted under “it’s me” and “nikki”. When you don’t have a previously approved posts with your name, I have to moderate the comment. Her IP and email match.

  209. DSDM2 says:

    Brainfreeze, her last name is the only new information posted. Her location is already publicly known… I can post more info if that isn’t enough for you…

  210. skye says:

    DSDM2 If I email all the screen shots of my info published can you validate that I’m telling the truth. I don’t want the info back up on another website.

  211. skye says:

    #213 admin at the pin deleted the posts

  212. nikki says:

    skye never apologized to me! she also never admitted that she made a mistake. in fact, when i repeatedly asked her what she shipped the 8oz of yarn i thought i had purchased in, trying to find out why it was too heavy for first class, ALL she would say was that it was too heavy. in all of my emails to skye, i remained calm. would you like to to forward them to you? i could also paste them here, if you’d like. i would love to know where i was angry or rude to skye.

  213. skye says:

    Thank you Nikki for proving my point about you. You have proven that by posting as someone else. I think that alone should answer many of the questions as to who is lying.

  214. skye says:

    Ummm Nicki she already has the emails, and I would be worried that you doctored them to benefit you. You have been deceitful already and have said you DH is a hacker.

  215. KAL says:

    how about the time skye said your husband was going to hack into her personal computer?

    I’d say that was pretty angry/rude/hostile?, NO?!

  216. DSDM2 says:

    Skye, I’ll upload it myself 🙂

  217. not just another mama says:

    Wow, the broad is insane.. Where is Equivical(sp)? They should all hang out together..

    Skye, I wouldn’t worry much.. This lady is clearly insane & has the maturity of a 10 year old. I’m sure she was stomping her feet & pulling her hair too..

  218. nikki says:

    skye, i posted once in the beginning as “it’s me”, after seeing you post my name today, i figured i might as well post with it. i’ve never posted here before, so i didn’t know the blog rules. i was not lying at all. and why should i trust that you sent her all the emails? or that you didn’t change them?

    #221, i never told skye my husband was going to hack her computer. i jokingly said something along those lines to a friend. i would NEVER actually allow that to happen. my husband saw his wife upset and shaking, and made an empty comment in an attempt to make me smile. that’s pretty much par for the course as far as his humor goes. if he said he was going to sic his warlord on her, would you believe that?

  219. not just another mama says:

    “Worry much” as in, worry that we would believe her, for even half a second.

  220. DSDM2 says:

    Nikki, feel free to email me your copies.

  221. not just another mama says:

    Did you tell him you were upset about a shipping delay for yarn? If my DH saw me mad about me he would have laughed.. Not threatened to hack someones computer & think posting personal information putting children in harms way was cool.. Regardless of the e-mails, what you did was beyond tasteless.. And I hope NO ONE ever deals with you.. PSYCHO.

  222. nikki says:

    i posted earlier asking where to send the emails to. if you replied, i’m sorry, i didn’t see it. it was one of my posts that were waiting moderation.

  223. skye says:

    #193 the posts that were deleted are the ones that you shared my personal information. Admin agreed w/me or they wouldn’t have deleted them.

  224. skye says:

    Her email address is dsdramamama2@hotmail.com

    I’m looking forward to what you are sending and wonder how much truth is in it.

  225. DSDM2 says:

    Nikki, you were given my email address on ThePin a few days ago, and here in post 152.

    dsdramamama2@hotmail.com

  226. skye says:

    I’ve noticed that Nikki has a habbit for selective memory. Only when things benefit her.

  227. DSDM2 says:

    **EDITING OUT LINK UNTIL I HAVE TIME TO FIX IT*** here is where you posted Skye’s personal information without editing it out on the PIN.

  228. not just another mama says:

    DSDM2, you’re such a tease!! Hehe.

  229. skye says:

    wanted to add my Spots corner sales were paid this afternoon. Wonder why?

  230. DSDM2 says:

    LOL, I want to make sure I get to edit out some of the information myself, and I want to check times on the emails and such… not to mention, I do have dinner to make.

  231. nikki says:

    skye, who bought from you on spots? what makes you think that has ANYTHING to do with me?

  232. skye says:

    unlike you I don’t post people’s usernames on the internet

  233. nikki says:

    so can you answer the question? what makes you think it has anything to do with me?

  234. nikki says:

    i do apologize, skye. i was snarky at one point. after you continued to dodge the question of why my yarn was too heavy for first class, i did ask if you had shipped it in a concrete box.

  235. skye says:

    Did you read my previous post??

  236. DSDM2 says:

    Nikki, do you have the first email you sent to Skye that she replied to? Thanks.

  237. skye says:

    I have it if she doesn’t

  238. DSDM2 says:

    How about you both send it over. 😉

  239. skye says:

    no problem

  240. nikki says:

    which post? give me a number! you say i have my friends buying from you and not paying, but offer no proof to the fact. or are you referring to post #283? because i did read that post and AGAIN am asking how you know this has anything to do with me?

  241. nikki says:

    unfortunately, no, i deleted it. after i asked for a shipping refund, and was told no, i dropped it, until i realized she shipped in a manner different than the one i paid for. in post 157, skye also said that she didn’t have it.

  242. skye says:

    No Nikki I said I couldn’t find it but said I would look for it later.

  243. DSDM2 says:

    Skye’s response too please.

  244. skye says:

    Nikki did you notice your post 210 above when you were called out for hiding behind a different username. You said check my IP address it’s not the same. Implying you were in fact not Nikki. Yet you are. Another lie or example of deceit.

  245. DSDM2 says:

    Skye, BrainFreeze is not the same IP as Nikki.

  246. nikki says:

    I AM NOT BRAINFREEZE! i have emailed the ds mods about that, but we all know they are ban happy over there.

  247. skye says:

    that is weird because that is her 2nd username on DS that she was banned for.

  248. skye says:

    I can’t say where or who I got the info from but yes the IP’s were the same on DS.

  249. DSDM2 says:

    Guys, I need Skye’s response to the email you sent.

  250. skye says:

    I’m sorry I thought that was what I sent?

  251. DSDM2 says:

    Nope, just the email from her.

  252. skye says:

    I’m sorry I thought I had all of that. I read the her message and assumed everything was in there.

  253. Messy says:

    This is me… testing…

  254. Messy says:

    Testing again…

  255. gunsarebad says:

    I am really curious who bought from skye on HC, and if it is in fact related. I don’t see what harm posting a username that is public anyway would be?

  256. skye says:

    huh? messy did I miss something?

  257. Brainfreeze says:

    #254

    Please provide proof of your claim. It has been verified that different IP addresses were used to post to this blog. Just saying something is true does not automatically make it true funny enough.

    Also if someone is providing you people on DS’s forums IP addresses, I would like that person’s information since they should be immediatly removed as an admin. Someone’s IP address is actually more dangerous for a random person to have then someone’s name and address.

  258. DSDM2 says:

    #263, she is banned from DS for having your UN and hers. What other proof do you want?

  259. kmr says:

    what is nikki’s email addy? i’m quite sure I could get her ass banned from HC and Spots 🙂

  260. skye says:

    #263 Of course admin would not share private info such as IP addresses. That is private information. I don’t know what you IP address is and I don’t want to know.

  261. Messy says:

    #262 IP addresses can be changed. Skye, like you said, her dh was going to “hack” into your computer. I had a program on my own computer that would proxy for my IP address for certain areas (as I chose). So, brainfreeze could easily be Nikki. She got caught on ds (they checked the IPs and banned accordingly). To prove a point, she can use a proxy hider to post here with both… I can’t use my personal computer at the moment but trust me, it is easy and can be done.

  262. Brainfreeze says:

    The issue with DS is being worked, the Brainfreeze account there was created last year before(i think) this whole debaucle started. You can verify this by checking the public profile.

    If it wrong to ask someone to prove their claims?

  263. skye says:

    Messy that is what I was thinking she had done as well.

  264. Brainfreeze says:

    Sure an IP can be changed, but if you know anything about the internet you know that 131.37.*.* is owned by the US government. Most people dont like the FBI showing up at their door for spoofing these IP addresses.

    Being as those are the first 2 octets of my IP address. It would be obivous that it is different people.

    If you put some semblance of thought into it that is.

  265. Messy says:

    #269 It is easy, and it is free in many forums. I can open up this blog on IE and in a separate tab open it up in the proxy hider and post from both at the same time. I would assume. I know that it can be done in other forums. I have not tried here as I said, my computer is rather broken at the moment and I won’t upload a bunch of crap onto this one. But I am sure that she is trying to make DSDM2 look stupid by saying she proved it here and DS was wrong bla bla bla.

  266. nikki says:

    seriously? i am sitting at home folding laundry while my daughter naps. my computer savvy extends to checking my email and buying diapers. i have made no attempt to hide who i am, either here or on ds.

  267. skye says:

    ITA Messy, that is exactly what I was thinking

  268. Messy says:

    #270 Feel free to recheck your information. If you are so sure however, go ahead and choose another country. http://www.proxy4free.com/page1.html Stop acting like it is impossible. Now we have both *you and *nikki here crying the same song and you telling us that proxy changers are not efficient for *you. Gimme a Break @@

  269. Messy says:

    #272 Go ahead and ask your hacker hubby to explain it to ya!

  270. Brainfreeze says:

    But hey it’s obivous that facts do not support your arguement, you only want something to support your daily drama fix. I guess I dont blame you. Nomatter how much you tell people the truth it is still their choice to believe or not.

    This is why we have forum drama, and religion and innocent people in jail. Some people cannot be taught due to sticking to mistaken beliefs.

    The facts here are that you had a posted sale, that was PPD but you charged shipping. Granted the buyer should have realized this before checking out. The buyer then e-mailed you about this and not only did you not refund the payment, but you shipped the item overweight and parcel post. This caused the item to take 2-3 weeks longer to be delivered then was needed. When the buyer posted the information on the forums the package images still had your name/address on them. This was the buyer’s fault as these things should not be given out over the internet. Though you also use your real name as a screen name and have it posted on your web site. It is not exactly a secret. The buyer has since covered up your name on the pictures in question. As to the hubby claiming to “hack” your computer..has it happined yet? It seems that it would have happined already given the amount of mud flinging happening in this thread.

    Pretty much this is just a she said she said arguement, there is no way to get to the actual facts without having to take someone else’s word on something.

    Your welcome to go whichever way you want frankly in the grand scheme of things it really dosent matter. The whole arguement is funny as hell anyway.

  271. skye says:

    innocent people in jail? WTH!

  272. Brainfreeze says:

    #274 Please point out where I said it was impossable. I said it was stupid not impossible. Dont worry you can refer back to post #270 if you want. 😛

    Without access to other arguements, always misquote the person your argueing with. Dont worry it works every time!

  273. Messy says:

    #278 Or if you try to sound smart or like you know what you are doing, others might start to agree with you (specifically). Reading your chapters of summary are interesting but seething with the bias tthat you obviously hold in this situation.
    It is imperative that people remember your exact screen name, that is currently singing the praises of a confirmed nutcase, was proven and thusly banned on DS for multiuser TOS violations. The multiuser situation was with the same person who you are trying to paint as an innocent victim: Nikki. Or yourself. Depends on how you refer to yourself when incognito I would suppose… Not only is proxying your IP easy and free, it is something you know enough aobut to be able to build a straw man to fight off the accusations; for which later information given showed you are full of cow kaka (bullshit incase you are haivng issues following along)!

  274. Cheesewhiz says:

    Nikki, you’re multiple personalities are showing.

  275. Cheesewhiz says:

    *your*

  276. not just another mama says:

    Hahah.. what a looney toon.

  277. Messy says:

    #282 …yup.

  278. nikki says:

    this is why i didn’t want to post in the first place. y’all make up your minds, regardless of the facts of a situation, and nothing will change it. think what you like, i’m done.

  279. skye says:

    Nikki you haven’t posted any facts.

  280. Cheesewhiz says:

    #285 – Think she’s confusing “facts” with “incoherent rambling from my other personality.”

  281. Messy says:

    #285 Exactly.

  282. DSDM2 says:

    Here are the emails over the transaction:

    On Sun, Feb 8, 2009 at 9:55 PM, Nikki wrote to Skye:
    hi, mama. i just got the shipping notice for the happathy yarn i purchased from you, and i was wondering if you were going to refund the $3 shipping i paid, since your listing says that the yarn was $35ppd.

    thanks,
    nikki
    ———-
    Sun, 8 Feb 2009 21:14:07 Skye responded to Nikki

    The ppd is a mistake
    ———-


    NO OTHER COMMUNICATION WAS SENT OR RECEIVED UNTIL NEGATIVE FEEDBACK WAS LEFT (Yarn was not received yet): (Also, the difference in yarn amounts was NEVER discussed.)


    dragynflye@hotmail.com has left negative feedback for order number 20984. You can respond to this feedback via your order history page. The buyer will then have the opportunity to remove the negative comment. Both the buyer’s feedback and your response will be viewable via your feedback page.
    ———-

    Date: Fri, 20 Feb 2009 09:42:54 SKYE WROTE:

    Subject: did you ever stop and think?

    That maybe your first email that you say you sent after you bought the yarn didn’t go through? and that you weren’t ignored? Did you ever stop and think that the 2nd email was answered very quickly?? Did you ever stop and think people have a life outside of the internet? I was in the hospital for 3 days for my latest round of chemotherapy. I come up to over 1,400 emails in my in box. EVERYONE got short reply’s, they weren’t rude. The reply was short and to the point. The listing charged shipping it was not ppd. I did not email you after the purchase and demand $3 for shipping.

    If you wanted to work something out you would have emailed me and voiced your questions, instead you leave negative feedback and want to come to a resolution. Uh no. Once you’ve left feedback the seller has no incentive to come to a conclusion. This situation makes me sick. I’ve never met anyone in almost 2,000 transactions online that handles things like this. It’s very disappointing.

    no, i never considered that my first email didn’t go through, since i contacted you through spots corner, and you obviously received my purchase information. i did stop and think that people have a life outside of the internet, which is why i waited for two days, until after i received my shipping notice, before contacting you again. yes, i did notice that my second email was answered very quickly, i am glad you didn’t add an “i’m sorry”, it might have delayed it another two seconds.

    i read the listing, saw the price, stated IN THE LISTING as $35ppd. i scrolled straight down to the buy it now button, and went straight to paypal to pay. i didn’t realize until i was in the process of paying you (immediately upon purchase) that i was being charged a different amount than the listing stated. since i was already in the process of paying you, i finished and then immediately contacted you. it was a friday evening, so i fully planned on waiting until monday to contact you again if i hadn’t heard from you.

    i did pay for shipping, on an item that was listed as postage paid. i understand there was a mistake in your listing and you handled the situation poorly. i would have sucked it up and let the $3 refund that i requested go, if you had actually shipped the yarn first class, since that is what i paid for. you claim it was too heavy to ship first class. you said that i should become more familiar with the usps before leaving feedback. i am familiar with the usps. i know that up to 14oz can be shipped first class. i only purchased 8oz of yarn. an envolope (or even small box!) and a label does not weigh 5oz. YOU chose to ship my package parcel post, without contacting me first. YOU chose to ship in a manner different than listed. YOU are at fault for the fact that i am still waiting on yarn i purchase more than two weeks ago. if the price for the yarn had been postage paid, as the listing stated, and YOU had chosen to ship parcel post, i wouldn’t have had much of a say in the matter, since i didn’t pay for shipping. however, i DID pay for shipping, and i paid for first class shipping.

    i truly am sorry for your illness, i cannot imagine what it is putting you and your family through. however, you should not be using that as an excuse for poor business practices. yes, i know that sounds cold, and i am sorry. but you knew you were going to be receiving chemo, it’s not like it was an unexpected occurance. if it was going to effect your ability to do business (which your email makes it sound like), then maybe you should have waited until you were recooperated before listing your items.

    Um no! My illness has nothing to do with this except I get a lot of emails. Answering emails from people over an issue like shipping does not need to take my time. The listing clearly charged shipping. It was not ppd as you are stating. Shipping was clearly marked in the listing.

    Talking to you is as productive as talking to the wall. By leaving feedback before you even receive the item you lost all bargaining power. You used negative feedback as a means of trying to get your own way.

    i’m confused as to why skye was so pissed that she thought nikki said she had cancer? seems like a reasonable conclusion to come to…

    honestly, seems like both parties are making a mountain out of a molehill.

  285. skye says:

    umm no, Skye is upset that Nikki posted her personal information in public and wouldn’t take it down.

  286. DramaBore says:

    Honestly, after reading the e-mails above, I would have been pissed if I was the buyer and received the blunt response Skye gave re: the listing charging shipping. Seriously, you fucked up by typing PPD in the listing – eat the $3 and remember to check it before you list next time.

    I don’t know what happened after this that lead up to the posting of private information (which is a shitty thing to do no matter what), but both of you are acting like babies.

  287. skye says:

    You are right 292 I was blunt. The listing was not ppd as she keeps insisting. I have already explained why the short response on another thread posted here.

    Regardless giving her a blunt response in no way validates posting of personal information including addresses, full names, and usernames on the internet, and refusing to take them down. They were only removed by admin.

  288. skye says:

    This situation has me so stressed out I can’t sleep worrying about who saw my info she posted. I can’t sleep, can’t eat, and have spent a lot of time crying over this. I think I need to step away from it temporarily I can’t keep doing this. At this point there is nothing else that can be done. I have nothing to hide and have supplied info when asked.

    The offending posts have been removed, and she was banned from doing this again. It’s good enough for me.

  289. DSDM2 says:

    Nikki, I got your email, and I haven’t decided.

    FYI, I cannot email back in order to protect my identity.

    I am going to bed early tonight. Goodnight all.

  290. skye says:

    #295 no please tell me this is over and something else isn’t starting. I can’t do this anymore.

  291. just_sayin says:

    I have to agree, Skye was unnecessarily rude in her responses. For one thing, did the listing say ppd? It sounds like from Skye’s first e-mail that it did, but she put it there by mistake. IMO, that’s a “too bad, so sad” kind of situation. If you say PPD, then you have to suck it up and send it PPD. I wish the listing was still up, since Skye claims that the DS listing was PPD but the Spots listing was not. There is no way to know what is true. Also, for Skye to say that Nikki’s e-mail was a waste of her time was really snotty. It’s never a waste of your time when someone gives you their money. I really didn’t see Nikki getting nasty in the e-mails.

    HOWEVER, and this is a huge HOWEVER, Nikki handled this very badly. She should not have left a negative. She should have contacted Skye first. The shipping delay is not a BFD. Suck it up, cupcake, you live in ALASKA. Shipping can be slow. If you have to have it right now, pay for priority. Posting Skye’s info (still like to see that proof) and bad mouthing her is really snarky and immature.

    In all, they both screwed up and treated each other badly. Skye seems to be playing the pity-me card (not that I wouldn’t be upset, but this is a bit overblown), and Nikki is letting her crazy show. They both need to withdraw feedback, and chalk this up as a learning experience. Skye, when a buyer, who gives you money, asks you a question, treat her like her business is valuable to you. Nikki, when things don’t go absolutely perfect, don’t flip out WWF style. Learn to let things go.

  292. gunsarebad says:

    well said 297. couldn’t agree more.

  293. squishy says:

    Skye really is milking this. If you have a business, and ship from your home address, you have to have thought something like this could happen. So, you say Nikki posted your address and now your all scared about who saw it. When you do business online, you mail shit out with your home address on it to people you don’t know. I mean, I can see why it’s a big deal, but if you had taken proactive measures to protect your address, then you wouldn’t need to worry about your address being seen far and wide on the interweb. Shitty situation all around. Nikki seems over it, and so should you. Hug it out and go to bed.

  294. Cheesewhiz says:

    What ever happened with the “friendship” gone sour lady…or did I miss that totally? I’m thinkin’ I did…

  295. Erin says:

    From the emails, it seems they both screwed up. If it has been me and I listed something PPD by mistake when I wanted to actually charge shipping, I would have sucked it up and refunded the $3. It’s $3, not that huge of a deal. HOWEVER, Nikki really went over the deep end here, getting pissed off over $3 shipping and a mistake in the manner of shipping(FC vs parcel).

    Bottom line: She got the yarn, no *actual* scamming took place. They both need to withdraw feedback, walk away and never contact each other again. All this negatively isn’t good for your kidneys!

  296. itsraininghere says:

    Wait, so the purchases on spots paid? so they aren’t her friends?

    grr. this is what i get for choosing a side and posting.

    i feel like a damn fish with all this flip floping.

    however, Nikki, you still jumped the gun by giving her negative right off the bat. Then posting her info, that’s just too much.

    I have to agree, after seeing the e-mails, Skye did get nasty. However, that first e-mail is just blunt, not nasty. I would be put off, but would not even consider a negative feedback. Not over $3, and not over a 1-line e-mail.

    Oh, and the whole Nikki going off on the chemo thing, that is just ridiculous. Skye wasn’t trying to make Nikki feel bad for her, and Nikki was a total bitch about that. Skye just said hey, i was in the hospital and i came home to a gazillion e-mails, and i didn’t take the time to do anything other than quickly respond.

    Yea, anything past the negative is justified anger on Skye’s part.

    brainfreeze is nikki’s dh, methinks.

    over 3 effing dollars? LAME! & posting private info is DIRRRRTY! & not in a good way!

  299. DramaBore says:

    Well said #297 – couldn’t agree more.

    And while I understand your circumstances Skye, I think it is unwise to be actively selling on HC and Spots if you know you are going through treatment and won’t be able to respond to inquiries accordingly. Just my 2 cents.

  300. Messy says:

    Depends. Nikki/Nikki’s other personalities has jaded me against their whole side. However, where was the information posted at? Are we only talking about the one shot of the mailing label where Nikki did not white out the label before somene else told her to? Or is the information about Skye posted somewhere else? DSDM2, what do the screen shots tell you? What are you thinking? We don’t have access to that information.
    FWIW, I really hate being wrong and I hope that Skye is not exaggerating the situation for the sympathy card. Also, I don’t like Nikki and think she is slimy enough to do these things but if she did not, then I do not want to blame her for what never was… Ok, I want to, but cannot. 😉
    Hey, at least I am honest!

  301. Messy says:

    #303 I thought that earlier too. When one of the dipshit duo stopped posting, they both did. Why do people think that everyone is stupid and they can pull this kind of crap without people catching on? Maybe she’s been talking to Lee and thinkz wez all jist womenz whoz can’t figurez thingz out on these internetz!

  302. JustPeachy says:

    Oh please. I know ppl who sell on spots all the time and dont ship for days with no excuse other than my dh didnt mail it out so dont start that bs that skye shouldnt sell because she has an illness.
    And I dont really see anyone being rude except for AFTER Nikki left fb when she didn’t get a reply. I’d be pretty rude too if someone had the audacity to bitch at me about 3 bucks then leave me neg fb before I could rectify the situation.

  303. gunsarebad says:

    a simple search will pull up lots of evidence that that is the case. hard to hide much on this thing called the interweb.

  304. jeruco says:

    Nikki you just entered my long list of DO NOT B/S/T

  305. DSDM2 says:

    Nikki Posted the entire shipping label on ThePIN without whiting out anything. She also used Skye’s entire name in the post.

  306. DSDM2 says:

    My opinion is that both sides are getting petty, sorry Skye.

    There was NO reason to leave negative FB. That was dumb and non proportional.

    Skye was within her rights to want to blacklist the buyer from her sales… I mean, no one wants to sell to someone who leaves a negative FB before getting the item, really. Filing with PP is one thing, leaving negative FB is another.

    Then the whole lie over the 7-8oz thing still gets me.

    Then the whining on DS with photos over the whole situation, then posting more photos with Skye’s identifying information on it… I got Skye’s zipcode and information for this thread from the photos… There were some emails back and forth about this too… but they don’t shed blame on either party IMO…. I’ll read them again to make sure.

    It is just getting ridiculous.

    Both ladies need to pack up their crayons and go home, but IMO, Nikki is more in the wrong. Skye made a mistake, and paid for it literally (by paying more than 2x the shipping costs).

  307. DSDM2 says:

    Nikki REALLY wants me to post these emails from yesterday . I’m not sure why since they show her being a rude smart-ass to Skye.
    First off, Skye is NOT STALKING. She is looking for posts about this situation, Nikki, I go much further in-depth when researching people than Skye does, I promise.

  308. nikki says:

    as i told dsdm2 in my emails to her, the link skye sent me in the email was to an expired search. when i used the keyword in the link (skye), it pulled up two posts- one about three irish girls yarn, and the one i thought this whole fiasco was about, my mention of her name to a friend. i went looking for a post with her address in it, and couldn’t find it. wish skye had told me it was a photo i was looking for. skye now says that the pin admin deleted the photo. i haven’t heard anything from them, so i wouldn’t know. maybe i did post the wrong photo, i do know that the photo i sent to SKYE herself, so she couldn’t deny that it was indeed her package, had her name on it, but the only photo i could find in my photobucket account was the one that was posted above, were i was careful NOT to show any info. if skye had done more than send me an expired link, if she had said, “hey, my info is in this picture, can you fix it?”, we wouldn’t be in this place now. instead, she sent me an email accusing me of using her name only, and then an expired link. i had to guess as to what skye was referring to. apparently, i guessed wrong.

  309. Messy says:

    DSDM2, thank you for the info… And really, as much as I hate to see drama die, these ladies need to let it gooo. Nikki has stooped to levels of the ultimate low, and I fear Skye is close to doing the same. What started as an error in shipping that cost the seller more money and was an obvious accident has turned into a playground skuttle. It cannot be said enough: communication is the key in all sales issues! Simple and polite communication between all parties will usually keep everyone happy, in the loop, and from leaving bad feedback.

  310. Munklettes says:

    lawl, skye’s a “stocker”

  311. DSDM2 says:

    Nikki, I have a screen shot of the photo you posted that had all info showing in it. I just really didn’t feel like photoshopping it to get it fixed up. You DID post all of her personal info, and her full name in conjunction with the post 2 different times on ThePIN. I would guess the post was pulled, as per their TOS.

  312. Messy says:

    #316 My pantry is a disaster from the last shopping spree. Wonder if Skye would come stock it for me 😛 Nikki seems to think she is a good stocker!
    FWIW, if I were Skye, I would have gone even further in hunting for information because of the tone of Nikki’s dealings. Then I would have called the police and filed civilly. But, that’s just meee…

  313. cdmd1023 says:

    this is lame. dont buy from eachother, simple as that. Skye, trust me, a simple search on google will probably bring all up all the info anyone would need to find you, its just a fact that the info is out there, Nikki didnt need to post it for it to be found.

    You know I completly understand how you feel, but its been days of this back and forth shit and now your both just looking obsessed to me, so just move on. 🙂

  314. DSDM2 says:

    Here, I edited out personal info. This was one of the posts in question. I have a wicked headache and am going to take a rest.

  315. skye says:

    seriously 319 I’m obsessed because I was concerned w/my all of my personal information posted for all to see? If it was not brought to my attention I would never have known. So yes the drama started again. The posts were only found because someone searched for them from her post on DS to see if they could find the truth of what happened in the transaction. Would you honestly not tried everything to get the posts removed? I emailed her about it, nothing came of it so admin was contacted.

    Drama mama has all the pictures that are in question. This isn’t about her posting something once. There is even a screen shot from another poster on the pin saying she could read my full name on the package.

    In the end my info was removed and she’s been banned for sharing it. That is all I wanted.

  316. not just another mama says:

    Good thing shes banned.. Is she banned from selling on Spots as well?

  317. JustPeachy says:

    If they could read the full name chances are they could read the address so she is well within her rights to be concerned. You never know what ppl have going on and Skye may have an actual IRL stalker or something like that.

  318. kjo says:

    #323…if that’s the case, then Skye should not be selling on HC, Spots or DS. Anyone can pull up that info. I knew Skye’s username and some about her personal situation before this whole thing started with NIkki. Skye was in a congo and freely offered up info about herself. Sadly, when you post on forums like DS, the Pin, here, and sell stuff out of your room, you put that info out there. And anyone can get it.

    I’m sorry, if people don’t want that info out there, they need to be more careful about using more creative/anonymous usernames and ship from a PO box instead of their home addresses. Identity and safety is a real concern and we are responsible, ourselves, to protect it.

    Having said that, I think the emails show that both mamas have handled the situation badly. It could have gone better on both ends. Now everyone just needs to move on and learn a lesson from this whole situation.

  319. jeruco says:

    Nikki,
    you are still the nut job in this transaction.

  320. bugabear says:

    I think it’s interesting that people are so concerned about their “private info” being posted to the web.

    Look at the JAR group, for instance. Almost every time someone posts a JAR they use the full name of the Bad Apple in question and no one raises an eyebrow.

    The fact of the matter is, if you are buying and selling on DS, HC, eBay, or anywhere someone is going to be able to put a username with an address unless you are using a P.O. Box or the like. And even then, it is really easy to find out via a simple google search someone’s address if you have their name.

    And yet people are hyperventilating about having their information “out there.” Peeps, your information is already out there and if you think it isn’t you’re really naive.

    Of course having someone post it in a thread makes someone *feel* more vulnerable, but if you do a lot of b/s/t’ing you aren’t exactly in covert status.

    Do I think posting someone else’s info to a public thread is the right thing to do? No. But to be this upset about it is sort of over the top.

  321. skye says:

    For anyone interested I did not have a fit over one picture. There are multiple screen shots taken. I can’t figure out how to post them w/out giving access to my entire PB acct.

    People on JAR aren’t giving out full addresses. I posted a simple question asking if I was justified in being upset after finding it out what she had done. The thread has 78 responses and not one person has said that I am not justified in being upset. Before I posted the question I emailed Nikki asking why she posted the info. The info was left up so I posted asking if anyone else would be upset if this had happened to them.

  322. skye says:

    the thread is on DS. When my feelings were confirmed I contacted admin. They removed the posts. I have said all along that is what I wanted. I fail to see how I am in the wrong for being upset my info was posted online. Yes mistakes were made during the transaction I have admitted that but that in now warrants what she did.

    IMO they are to separate issues. In over 4 years of buying and selling online DS, HC, and ebay I have never had a problem like this. Didn’t think I would have to be concerned w/someone sharing my info.

    I’m done, I’ll let the drama stop.

  323. fiddlesticks says:

    Forgive the newbie here, but I’m so confused with this drama. :S I don’t get what it is you think Nikki lied about? Because her dh logged in and stood up for her? i’d want my dh to do the same. I feel like I’m missing a whole page or something. All I see is where Skye has lied (no judgments being made here, Skye, I’m sure you’re an amazing mama because we have mutual web-acquaintances that think so and I trust their judgment)… but honestly– first she says she’s in chemo, then she says she’s not. She says there was no communication from Nikki before neg fb was left, but I see two interchanges before the fb was left. Yes, the fb may have been hasty, but not IMO unwarranted. I see poor communication from the seller– she didn’t contact the buyer regarding the shipping mistake, and when the buyer got upset the seller actually *refused* to communicate with the buyer. (I also wonder why the yarn was listed for 2 different prices? $35ppd on DS and $35 + shipping–supposedly– on Spots). I see Skye making unproven accusations about Nikki’s friends buying her GMs and not paying. That seems a bit ridiculous to me that she would jump to that conclusion. I don’t know who the buyer was, but Nikki and I have several mutual friends and I know none of them would be that childish. I do see that Nikki posted a picture of Skye’s shipping label on the Pin with the full address visible, and I understand Skye’s concern here. I see Skye accusing Nikki of refusing to take it down, but I don’t see the actual refusal. It’s not in any of the e-mails posted here. I do see the thread on the Pin where this mistake was pointed out to Nikki by another Pin mama and I see where Nikki asked where the picture was located so she could edit it. I do not find Nikki to be a vindictive person. What I see is a bunch of Skye’s friends jumping to conclusions about Nikki’s sanity and saying horrible things about her without having had any actual interaction with her themselves. On top of everything else, I see several apologies from Nikki and none from Skye. Seems to me like if apologies and an effort to make things right had taken place *privately between buyer/seller* in the first place, we wouldn’t be here wasting our time.

    Can you women please just apologize and go your separate ways? This whole thing has been blown *hugely* out of proportion. Please, girls… move on!

  324. bugabear says:

    Skye — I didn’t say you were wrong for being upset. I do think, though, that a little perspective might help you be less upset. You said it yourself – over 4 years of buying and selling online. On your profile on DS alone you have over 1700 transactions. Even taking into account that you may have had some of those transactions with the same person over time, that’s still over 1,000 people you don’t know from a hole in the wall who have your personal info. I’m not saying that to scare you — we all b/s/t online and take the same risks.

    What Nikki did was wrong and more than a bit crazy. I just happen to think that you don’t need to let it get to you as much as you seem to be on this blog.

  325. fiddlesticks says:

    skye, my dh would love your monster. it looks kinda like meatwad. lol

  326. skye says:

    331 To be honest I never considered it happening. Maybe I’m naive I’ve only bought/sold items for children. I wrongly assumed that I wouldn’t be dealing w/anyone who would do this. Considering it could go both ways. I could publish her information if I wanted too, which I don’t. We are both moms w/children.

    Fishsticks I don’t have time right now to argue w/you but no I haven’t lied once since I’ve been over here. I have no reason to lie. There are multiple reasons why a person needs chemo it doesn’t have to be cancer.

  327. JustPeachy says:

    Oh and as far as the discrepancy in the yarn, its possible that both skeins were over 3.5 oz. As well as that even if they were 3.5oz chances are the total weight of the yarn plus packaging was over 7oz hence the 8oz shipping weight. Did that make sense?

  328. squishy says:

    I love meatwad!

  329. skye says:

    LOL who is meatwad

  330. squishy says:

    From aqua teen hunger force. An adult swim cartoon!

  332. skye says:

    fiddlesticks look at dates and times on emails and when feedback was left. If you’ve read my previous posts I wasn’t aware of a shipping mistake. She found one but the first I heard of it was negative feedback.

    OK, now I’m really done.

    Well, Fiddlesticks, it sounds like you knew that Brainfart was Nikki’s dh. It is the exact same as trolling herself. I would be so ashamed if my dh hopped in the middle of a discussion and tried to post information that would make it appear that there was no “understanding” between he and his wife (AKA trolling for her). She pretended to not know who it was as well. That makes her slimy. It makes him utterly ridiculous and I could very well see a man like that married to *her.

    I agree, both parties have some blame to go around here.

    Wow!

    Well said fiddlesticks (#329).

  344. fiddlesticks says:

    i didn’t *know* Brainfreeze was Nikki’s dh… i assumed that because that’s what you all said. it makes sense that that’s who it would be, but who cares?

    i could say that skye is slimy and looney from some of the things posted here but i’m not. i have no personal dealings with her and it’s not my place to judge. our mutual friends say she’s a terrific mama and i believe them. i do think both mamas are probably really decent people who just handled a situation very poorly… and it’s time for everyone to find something else to fill their drama canteens. i can’t believe how dramatic this has become.

    and now, dear mamas, i’m done. i’ve said my piece. i’ve come to the aid of a good mama and it’s obvious that nothing i (or anyone) says will convince you gals to get some perspective. i’m really sorry that skye and nikki have been caught up in all this. hugs to both of you. i hope you don’t lose anymore sleep over this ridiculousness. ❤

    Messy said: “Nikki, you win the LoonyTiffoonyCrazyCristina Award, hands down! Nobody deserves it as much as you do… Except perhaps your dh.”

    ROTFLMAO!!!

  346. Meghan says:

    I live in Anchorage and first class comes WAY quicker than PP. Parcel post is like mail purgatory. I’d be pissed. I really wonder what the original posting said- it sounded like at first Skye admitted that it did say ppd, then once it was deleted said that it never said that. In any case, I’m a big fan of sellers that take responsibility for their mistakes in posting instead of just pawning it off on the buyer. It was also entirely her fault for shipping it incorrectly,and for not notifying the buyer of a different shipping method than the one purchased. I’d be really irritated by this. The bad feedback was a little preemptive, but from the tone of the emails from Skye I wouldn’t be encouraged that she’d be willing to work with me, honestly. As stellar as Skye’s CS has been, as a seller she handled this poorly before, during, and after the transaction. As far as posting personal info on the net, I’m sure it wasn’t that buried- if you post enough random crap about your life and location, someone can and will figure it out if they feel like it. The burden for remaining anonymous is on you, through unrevealing email addresses and paypal, etc. etc. You are handing the info out to perfect strangers but are THAT concerned about it being kept secret, because of an unspoken code? I, for one, hate brusque emails from sellers- how long does it take to state something slightly more politely and add a period? You are providing a service that a hundred thousand other people provide- why should I buy from you if you don’t have the time to type “please” ?

    Anyways, not affiliated with Nikki, but had to get that out.

  347. Emily says:

    fiddlesticks – just to clarify quickly. Skye said she was on chemo but did not have cancer. She didn’t say that she was on chemo and then say she was not on chemo.

  348. Messy says:

    Serious question: Doesn’t paypal send an email to the buyer when the shipping is printed out? I know that when I sell on ebay or a couple other places that I the buyers have been notified via an email of the purchase and DC#. Or at least I thought they had???

  349. JustPeachy says:

    Um this isnt the first time Ive heard of Nikki’s crazy so I sincerely doubt she wasn’t trying to start shit.

  350. fiddlesticks says:

    thank you for the clarification, emily! 🙂

  351. fiddlesticks says:

    why are the smileys here so creepy? lol

  352. squishy says:

    fiddlesticks- I like that your monster has a spring instead of legs.

    #354

    lately I have been getting the pp shipping notice emails a week after I get the item. So, yes they do send them, but they seem to be very late right now.

  354. Messy says:

    #359 Ahhh! Ok! That could be adding to the confusion. With prompt paypal notices, both buyer and seller would have a better understanding of the situation when a mistake is made. As the seller, I would have assumed the buyer had gotten the shipping notice from pp; so, I am glad you told me!

  355. skye says:

    360 she rec’d the email from pp, it is referenced in the first email sent. When she got the shipping notice from me apparently is why she emailed.

  356. skye says:

    How do I turn off email notices from here when new posts are made? I can’t figure it out. Getting constant emails from here is making it hard to walk away.

  357. skye says:

    NM I found it

  358. Messy says:

    Skye, once you subscribe, you can never go back!!! Bwahahaha! We are addictive! We getz in yourz emailz and taunt you to return!!! Not bad for dumb computer illiterate womenz!!! 😉

  359. JustPeachy says:

    I think DSDM2 transmitted her sickies over the interwebz becuz I iz sick.
    Seriously I feel like a mack truck hit me.

  360. diudiaole says:

    O/T if you guys remember me — I had my baby boy. 😀 He turned a week old yesterday(loooong labor… did not get my HB).

  361. Cheesewhiz says:

    Oh my goodness, congrats, diudiaole!!!! Was wondering how you were doing!!! 😉 Hope you are both doing well!

  362. JustPeachy says:

    Yay for babies! We wondered where you disappeared to.

  363. DSDM2 says:

    Sorry Peach. Wez stilz gotz it herz too.

  364. DSDM2 says:

    366, YEY! What are the details?

  365. DSDM2 says:

    I love me some birth story!

  366. Messy says:

    BABY!!! CONGRATS!!! I love da babies!!!
    (((healthy vibes for the sickos))) 😉

  367. Messy says:

    Grrr… I think you guys have infected my kids & dh. I am so so so sick of freaking sick people! I am sick of being sick myself! I have never seen a year like this one. It is like viruses have waged war on humans~ and they are winning. Just thought I would bitch about it here since finding the IRL virus spreader is impossible with everyone sick… But anyhow (((more healing vibes!)))

  368. JustPeachy says:

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaa I rarely ever get sick but when I do its a doozy. So right now I am barely holding back what little I have in my stomach. I want to curl up into a ball and go to sleep until this virus or whatever is gone.

  369. Messy says:

    Dh is curled up in a ball hating life right this moment. I knew when I said that I had a headache, he would soon fall over half dead LOL! Three of the kids are now home… Trickling in one at a freaking time with a stomach ache @@ I blame it on the water fountains!

  370. ora says:

    I don’t have a dog in this fight, but Skye’s excuse for being rude to Nikki is lame. Swamped with emails after getting chemo for three days? She had time the time and energy to post on DS all night on the 8th, when she blew Nikki off. And it looks like she didn’t get off DS all day on the 6th, when the order was placed and she was supposedly in the middle of getting treatment.

    Nikki might have misjudged whether or not FB was warranted (unclear) and she might have handled the ensuing dispute with Skye badly (unclear), but Skye could have avoided a lot of this by taking two seconds to write a decent reply — one that wasn’t rude, for sure, and one that satisfactorily dealt with the ppd issue (was it marked ppd or not?). I have yet to hear a good reason from her why she didn’t.

  371. JustPeachy says:

    Sometimes ppl leave their browsers up while logged into DS so it appears they are on all day but in fact are not. I know I do this and I for sure am not on DS all day lol.

  372. ora says:

    I was looking at posts. Can you tell how long someone’s actually logged on?

  373. Messy says:

    Ummm… Ora… Seriously, why do you care how long someone is logged into diaperswapper? Are you the new *stocker*?

  374. ora says:

    Just curious, you can put your claws away little kitten.

  375. Messy says:

    You did not try to just talk down to me… I am sure of it.

  376. me me me says:

    Right or wrong, Messy has to be my fav poster here. Crakz meh up!

    As for Nikki and Sky. I don’t think either handled any of this well. But in the end, Skys mistake was super undertsandable and forgivable. Human beings make human mistakes. Not everyone knows how to handle getting unexpected flames tossed at them and hey just come back with their panties in a bunch. I think that’s what happened.

  377. mommy2KRA says:

    fiddlesticks (post 329) you said it perfectly. this whole thing has been blown WAYYYY out of wack.
    Skye you are heaping pile of crazy. your whole woe is me act is insane & pathetic. Oh my information is out there, oh someone could stalk me or my family, blah blah blah. Get off it already. it’s a well known fact that anyone could find your information with a simple search. You are the one that allows your info. to be put out there in the first place , its a risk that you knowingly and willingly take. So suck it up.If you were that concerned about yourself and your family you would use a PO, different name, etc. etc. Nikki should have blacked out your info. and didn’t. it was a simple oversight. We are all human and anyone of us could have done it. No reason to attack, insult and trash the poor girls image.
    I find it ironic that you and others are bitching and complaining about your info. being put out there, but you and the others have no problem with putting Nikki’s out there. WTF is that???
    This whole situation is retarded. As a seller Skye you should have done what ever you needed to do to make Nikki more at ease with the transaction. The customer is always right. You should have been nice and polite and responded in a more appropriate time frame to her emails. Show some proper customer service. Had you done that in the first place you could have avoided this whole situation.
    Now isn’t there some GoodMama Drama to move on too?

  378. Monkey says:

    #383… and flipping out over $3 is not a whole heaping pile of insane? I finally figured it out after reading then entire section. Nikki is a self-obsessed narcissist (OMG MY YARN WAS LATE AND THE MAMA DIDN’T IMMEDIATELY SAY THAT SHE WAS WRONG AND THE WORLD REVOLVES AROUND ME!!!) and Skye is being way over sensitive. They both made mistakes and they both handled it poorly, but Nikki honestly has a problem. Her posts and emails reek of a personality disorder. I’m not saying this to be mean or defend Skye, I’m being totally honest.

  379. Messy says:

    #383 Well, there *could have been more GM drama, but since you rejuvenated this thread, why not come back and discuss it some more?
    BTW, since you feel this thread is “retarded”, could you please give me the definition of “retarded” as you used it in that post? Who, in your life, taught you that calling some thing “retarded” was appropriate?
    After reading that and a couple other of your “smart” quips, I can believe that Skye is probably thrilled that you are not on her side. Who needs an uniformed zealot who posts a day late and dozen brain cells shy on their side? Oh, Nikki does I see…

  380. squishy says:

    messy- who taught you that making fun of someone’s mental issues was okay? Because here you defending all the nikki bashers on here, who are calling her mental, psycho, crazy, ect, and throwing in a few yourself. But you jump on one person for saying something is retarded. So, either you are just being a hippocrite, or you’re just name calling like a little kid. So which is it? Why is it okay for you to make fun of someones mental issues? Does that make it okay to make fun of skye illness? Because mental illness is an illness.

    FTR- I don’t think nikki is crazy, and I would never make fun of someones illness.

  381. me me me says:

    If you had a child/family member with mental retardation, you’d understand why use of that word is offensive.

    However, most of the ppl that come on here trying to defend their out of control behaviors, come off crazy. It’s just what happens.

  382. Messy says:

    #386 Squishy, I call it as I see it. Obviously you agree that Nikki is missing a few brain cells or you would not call me out on her “mental disability”… You must be correct that I should not call her out on her obvious mental issues. My bad. I had no idea she was actually diagnosed with a mental condition; I thought she just behaved like a loon who wasn’t getting her way… Your explanation makes sooo much more sense though!
    Calling a situation “retarded” is something I would like someone to explain to me. What exactly does that mean?

  383. Messy says:

    #387 I agree 100% Although, not knowing that Nikki really was certifiably mentally ill, I described her behavior in a demeaning way. Since Squishy enlightened me that it is not nice to make light of someone who she let me know has mental issues, I have to agree with her too. There is *acting crazy (which I thought Nikki was doing), there there is *truly crazy (which Squishy has informed me that Nikki really is). Squishy is such a good friend/defender of Nikki to let us all know she is a diagnosed mentally incompetent person.

  384. Monkey says:

    #386 In case your last comment was in any way directed at me… I was in no way “making fun” of a mental illness, I take that very seriously. I was being totally honest, and as another poster said, “calling it as I see it”. No insult was intended, just an honest assessment of what I see in her emails.

  385. an AK mama says:

    I don’t know or care who’s in the wrong here, but I just have to comment here that first class shipping does NOT take a month to get to AK. Parcel Post does. First class comes on a plane, just like a letter. Parcel Post comes on a sloooooow barge. First class takes 4 or 5 days. Parcel Post takes weeks or longer. I get stuff sent to me first class often and it’s never ever ever taken longer than 5 days. I still upgrade to priority if I’m truly in a hurry for something, but generally first class is just fine.

    That is all. 😀

  386. diudiaole says:

    Sorry about no details, I spent all day yesterday in the hospital. After over 2 days of labor and no progress baby had some decell’s so another c-sec for me unfortunately. I’ve been having a couple issues, but I think I’m on the road to recovery now.

    He was tiny 5lbs 15 oz and 20 inches long and a full head of dark hair… looks like a clone of his daddy… seriously people are making jokes about how all I did was carry him.

    He’s completely healthy and a great nurser and I feel we have really bonded well.. totally different experience than what I had with my nicu babes.

    I know how fast they grow up, so I’m trying to enjoy every minute of the newborn stage.

  387. diudiaole says:

    oh but on topic… I can totally understand how a mistake could be made on the shipping label and even overlooked before being shipped out if skye had a ton of other orders going out… but it is still an ugly mistake for the seller to have made *particularly* since it was going to Alaska.

    So skye paid $6 to ship it that way… sucks, but how is that the buyer’s fault? Skye should have refunded the $3(since she fucked up putting ‘ppd’ in the original, but doubly after she screwed up the shipping so bad) and apologized profusely and that would have made the transaction a neutral rather than negativefrom the buyer’s POV. If she had given an extra discount for the trouble(at least 10%), skye might have been able to negotiate positive feedback on an otherwise seriously crappy transaction.

    In conclusion, skye botched the transaction pretty badly and gave horrible customer service to boot… so what if the buyer showed some crazy and behaved badly after the fact? I don’t see how Skye or anyone else can say her negative fb wasn’t fully merited in this case.

  388. DSDM2 says:

    C- got the email, it should link if you put it in there, I’m off to look for you.

    hippocrite? 😆

    hippocrite?

    She looked at my ass before name calling 😉

  391. me me me says:

    393-I think most of us agree Skye messed up and could have handled it better. BUT it was the buyers over the top, out of protortion response to the unintentional, totally understandable and truely minor mistake, that got us all to feel that she was in the wrong.

    I mean REALLY, as a buyer myself, if the same situation happened to me. I bought something on SPOTS CORNER that I needed for my childs birthday, and the seller accidentily paid DOUBLE shipping, but that double shiping was slower shipping and the item still got there in time but cut it close, (heck even if it missed my deadline entiely) I’d be super duper bummed. I’m intentionally ignoring the issue of the PPD and hipping fees as both parties state oposite stories on this, with neither able to provide proof she is correct.

    However, I’d never ever flip out on the seller like she did. I’d never leave feedback before getting them item, especially if I KNEW it’s been shipped, it just hasn’t arrived yet. I’d never take pics of the label and email it to the seller in an acusitory fashion insunuating some sort of conspiritcy or intentional sabatase of my deadline. And maybe most important of all. I’d never ever post about it on the forums looking for hand holding and haugs. I’d contact the seller directly, calmley state my cncerns and see what happens.

    I am willing to bet a million $$ had the buyer approched the seller in a less acusitory way, the seller would have responded better. I think the initial tone of the buyers response set the mood for this whoel thing. I know soem will say a business woman needs betetr people skills than that. But please, we are talking about a comminity full of hormonal, pregnant/breastfeeding, over worked mamas. We all lose our cool at times and don’t handle presure situations as well as we’d like. Sky gets a “freebee” from me on the “sould have handled it better” front. Buyer however, I shall be avoiding her.

    Please note: I have not had any dealings with either buyer or seller myself and would not have known their screen names from a hole in the wall before this, so my opinion is not based on “knowing” either.

    I mean DUDE. I’ve had some WAHMs really burn me. Once had a “freind” WAHM delay my order of a dozen (insert special style of diaper unique to her brand) in size new born and sent in several skeins of yarn for YYMN, whihc shouldhave given me 2 NB longies, 2 small soakers and one XXXL shortie for bigger kiddo. A year later, after agreeing to upsize the diapers 4 times and her waisting 3 of my skeins of custom dyed yarn by making them too late for measurments to fit my growing baby (I did order and pay before she was BORN mind you) all I ended up with is 2 pairs of longies that were too small by the time I got them (with wonky waist vs inseam ratios to boot) and 2 doz dyed prefolds that ended up with holes after 3 weeks of use. I STILL didn’t flip out, I still diddn’t go crazy. I handled it privatly and just ended up getting over the fact I was screwed horribly and learned I didn;t have a friend after all, which was the part that botyered me most in all of it. WAHM is fairly poular on HC and a mod. I’d have been made out to be an idiot had I complained about her publicly anyways.

    And this one to me just beats all. I traded with another WAHM a bunch of fabs I had for her to embroider some PUL cuts for my personal use. When I got them back they where reaking of cigarette smoke (I am horribly allergic and endedup super sick for 3 weeks). I shut the box and left in the garage until my eyes unswelled and I could see again. I exampind the “work” with a face mask and goggles on (really I did) and found they had BURN holes and had been melted in places causing the fabric solid pul to delaminat. Which is something I have never seen happen to the solids, even after like what, 8 yrs of cloth diapering. I took pics and emailed the wahm, whom swore they weren’t like that when she boxed them up and no one in her home smokes. She said she washed them before mailing tho. Not sure why they smelled like ashtreys and not Tide then. So apparently the PO, at some point, opened the package, used my pul as ashtreys, then cleaned them off, folded them nicely, resealed my package so no one could ever tell they did that and sent them on their way to me. Mind you they were in several small poly mailers (that I sent them to her in, then inside a large tyvek together. After a couple emails I got the message she was not going to admitt she messed up (which was all I wanted, her to give a shit and be honest) so I just stopped talking to her and went on my way. Now THAT was tottally the kinda trasaction that would warrent the kind of freak out this thread is here to talk about. Yet I STILL didn’t freak out. Not even TO the wahm, not on a message board. Now, the phone convos with my FRIENDS about it, got heated for sure.

    Point is, perspective people. Buyer got yarn, in what almost everyone would agree was a resonable time frame, it was in the condition expected and totally usable for intended situation. Had the buyer sat down to knit them right away, they’d have been done in time, instead she blew countless days and hours of her life ranting about it on DS and here. Just not a reasonable way to react IMO.

    Wow that was wordy. I have been thinking about my POV on this thread for too long, not sure what my actuall perspective was on it. Guess I figured it out finally. rofl

  392. me me me says:

    damn, thought i proofed it good enough, wrong. ignor my typos, i suck.

  393. diudiaole says:

    #397 —

    I totally agree that the buyer is a nut…especially with getting her dh to post on here and her thread on that other site. I wouldn’t think most people would behave so badly regardless of how crappy the transaction was.

    Skye’s sent the buyer an e-mail stating “the ppd was a mistake.” which lead me to believe ‘ppd’ was in the original listing.

    I just don’t see where skye even apologized one time for her mistakes… and the posts about sitting at home crying that her children were in danger were just over the top…seriously use a damn PO box and keep your address unlisted then, otherwise WTF.

    bottom line — I can’t see how a demented buyer automatically lets skye off the hook… if she had at least apologized and stayed calm I’d be singing a different tune.

  394. me me me says:

    Naw, doesn’t automatricly let Skye off the hook, just creates so much distraction, that it almost doesn’t matter. Cuz all people will remeber is the buyer being crazy. Shoot, I can’t even remember the buyers name anymore, just that she is crazy. lol

    I would hope that once Skye recovers from her Disney trip (she was on holiday when this all blew up) that she will take note and avoid issues of this nature in the future. With her Fb, I seems like maybe she had an off day and this isn’t her norm. KWIM?
