Tsu Dho Nimh writes "Mikeynice, the public face of Etsy's management team, posted this in his blog under the title "Improving Etsy Emails": Starting this week, we're going to be trying something new for members who make their first purchase. A portion of these members will receive a "Thank You" email a few days after their purchase. In this email, we'll invite them to connect with Etsy via Facebook and Twitter and tell them about some shopping newsletters. We'll also suggest other items they might like, based on what they've previously purchased. ... "

Great shades of vintage Spamazon! To encourage people to come back, they'll send them a letter telling them that they are being tracked because they made a purchase. Creepy!"
