GlitterSniffer Cosmetics Proprietor Lela Warren and the Case of the Brand New Facebook Account

I've posted a couple of times over the last few days about GlitterSniffer Cosmetics proprietor Lela Warren's seeming disregard for Facebook Terms of Use.

There is no need to use a qualifier any longer. In her own words, from her current personal Facebook account, dated January 10, 2010:

Lela's old Facebook account was deactivated for a violation of Facebook terms for selling on a personal page so she simply created a new one, another violation of Facebook terms

We know from past history that Lela isn't good with following terms and regulations with regard to the business decisions of GlitterSniffer Cosmetics, but one would think having just lost access to her Facebook account she would look said terms over before plowing ahead with creating a new account.

But let's give Lela the benefit of the doubt. The Facebook terms can be a bit confusing. 

Hard to understand, isn't it?

So, assuming that Lela was unaware of the terms about making a new account, it was still made quite clear that advertising and selling are not supposed to be taking place from a personal Facebook page, reinforced by the fact that Facebook deactivated her account. And yet...

Nineteen days after having her personal account disabled by Facebook for sales and advertising Lela again began selling and advertising from her personal page, an ongoing practice that continued up until at least April 18, 2011.

Trivial? Maybe. Nitpicky? Perhaps. But it also serves to show that it is demonstrably true that even when negative consequences like losing her other Facebook account occur Lela simply chooses to ignore whatever terms don't meet her personal needs and desires for her company and does what she wants without regard for the consequences of those actions. This does not bode well for the (once again) promised changes, nor for the future of GlitterSniffer Cosmetics, and that is due solely to the choices the company and its proprietor Lela Warren continue to make.
