Submission + - Etsy.com exposes buyers' real name, sexy purchases (tumblr.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Etsy.com is transitioning from craft-focused e-commerce to "social commerce." What does that mean? Privacy violations, apparently. Etsy has retroactively published the real names and purchase history of their buyers, complete with search. Users have not been notified of the change outside a help forum post. But Etsy users are fighting mad and sellers are demanding answers.

Should users need to explain to admins why selling sex toys might be incompatible with opt-out transparency and real names?
