What's up with that? I haven't been on here for a while. But I was browsing etsy and found someone is selling tutorials. All of her tutorials can be found here. So I know this isn't a coincidence.

Did things change around here? Is is now acceptable to take someone else's work and sell it as your own?? Am I the only one who finds this unethical?

Hrmm, you're sure it's not the same person just with a different username? Or perhaps that person's own version of the tutorial?

I did consider that at first when I saw the first tut. But looking more closely into it I find that considering this one seller is selling a few tutorials that were posted by different Craftster users I don't think she has four different user names on here... thus I don't think she came up with these tuts herself. How close to the ones on here are the text, I don't know. Either way, I don't think it's right. Especially as she just has tuts from here & nothing of her her own creation.

I think it's sad (and unethical!) that she is trying to profit off of stuff that was made by Craftster peeps to be shared for free for us to be creative.
