Exactly what I thought when I read your post.

What you were seeing was not thousands of people all pretending to be the official Slink store. What you were seeing was everyone who sells Slink-compatible items (Slink-rigged mesh clothing, Slink appliers, etc) and who use search keywords so that you can find the Slink-compatible items inworld. It's a perfectly legitimate marketing option that Linden Lab gives us.

As Callum said: you can either type 'Slink' into the map to get to the store, or you can look up Slink's creator - Siddean Munro - in People search. That's much easier on your blood pressure than venting about 'fake news' on a residents' forum.

Also most of the time you can look in places and the store will be at or close to the top of the list. Not true in THIS CASE however. 

So a quick alternative if you do not know the creator's name (and most of the time we don't remember or I don't) you can search GROUPS will will most often have the group for that store as the top entry.

From there you can find the creator (usually) and get to their profile to find their store. 

 

The Marketplace is another way to find places. It works well for most stores but the mesh body folks mostly don't sell on the Marketplace so that is out in this case. 

Example.

Using the browser's search function is sometimes a hit and miss affair, but for shops which have a Group tend to stand apart from similar names due to their high member count. It's all part of the 'living' experience, same as for first. Engage grey matter.

I sometimes wonder how many sets of redundant SLink hands and/or SLink feet are sitting idle gathering dust in people's inventories these days.

I have Maitreya but used to hang on to SLink shoes as well, just in case. Never worn them. Don't do that anymore.

in that case you didn't see a lot in the 13 years, or at least still not know what SL is.

If you are using the web search you can filter by land that'll weed out all the people with that name, i'm certain when i've needed to find the Slink store in web search if it wasn't the first result it was very near the top the only place i really had problems with finding was TMP because i didn't know the store was called The shops

I would absolutely hate it if when I typed Maitreya into search the only thing that popped up was the official Maitreya store.
