"I have 23 items all tagged the same, how come they don't all show up on the same page?"

"Why is someone with 47 items all tagged the same dominating the first few pages?"

"I think Etsy should randomize the results so there is more variety"

"Why are there so many different items showing up in my (general) search?"

"I'm so upset, people who stuff their titles making them 5 lines long are taking over and pushing my stuff back"

"I just changed some of my titles to include more relevant keywords and my items are moving up in the search"

"Please make Etsy's search more like Ebay's, I can always find what I'm looking for there"

"Please don't make Etsy's search like Ebay's, I left there because I was buried and couldn't be found"

"OMG, put the search back the way it was, if it ain't broke, don't fix it"

"Etsy, please for the love of everything that is good and pure, fix the search so people can find what they're looking for"

And on and on it goes.  Here's hoping Etsy can separate the facts and data from the rest of the crap.  While theoretically I support a relevant search and feel that the current 'renewing to be seen' is a recipe for future disaster (as more and more sellers discover this method and adopt it, rendering it useless),  I'm pretty certain that either way they go will result in someone being unhappy about it.  As long as the decision is based on data and facts and not swayed by emotion, I'll be happy, even if I personally don't like the final decision.
