SLUniverse is Closing

Recommended Posts

Since some people who post to these forums were banned from SLU, it's hardly a surprise that they would not mourn its passing.  I've always liked SLU for having a more relaxed attitude, although Cris has always stepped in when needed to shush, lock or boot.  And the politics sub forum in particular was brilliant; left leaning in general, which suits a socialist like me!   But the new iteration looks great, so onwards and upwards.

I peeked into SLU many, many years ago - I even made a few posts.  However, these days, I don't have as much time for forums, so I just stick to here.

I think you should tame that post down a bit before the mods see it Phil. 
We wouldn't want to lose our favorite Mr. GrumpyPants from the forum ?

I thought Phil previously said, once name-calling started, the argument is lost?

I don't keep them quiet :D

Just out of interest, it was for bad language [REDACTED BY MODERATOR], and not for criticising some of the Lindens who moderate here.

Well I am sure it will make some people happy to hear Phil, I have noticed them trying to push your buttons.  You managed it all by yourself :P

I'm a dab hand at pushing my own buttons, but we'd better not go into details here in public ?

I'm just curious, why is there an adult section on the forums if all posts have to be pg?

I'm just back from a forced.... wait never mind, one is not allowed to comment on mod activity

I've wondered this myself at time.  However, when scanning that section, not ALL posts are truly PG.  Thus I imagine what one gets away with often depends on where it is posted and how much people in that area care about the specifics of the Guidelines.

In reality, the Guidelines really should say Moderate because nudity in photos is allowed pretty much everywhere as long as the nipples and genitalia isn't showing.  Yet how often do you see a picture of someones behind being classified as truly PG in the real world?

Since my return, I've been amusing myself by reporting obviously adult posts.

I've seen it officially explained but it's been a while; no guarantee this is completely accurate.

There's no login or age validation required to read the Adult section, any more than there is for the rest of the Forum. LL has to assume non-adults are reading this stuff and wishes to keep the content age-appropriate. Since Google is littered with forum posts, that's probably a good PR idea.

The adult section is probably just to keep adult rated events and advertising's and other things to do with adult sims, in it's own section, rather than mixing them in with the others..

They shoved Zindra pretty much out of site on the map in about the same way as they shoved that section way close to the bottom of the forum selection..

 

In other words,they probably don't want AFK sex sims, advertising in the Places and Events section,which is just below the people forums..

Yep, sl sex is Linden Lab's dirty little secret.

At least they are doing it right in Sansar, offering a wholesome, nothing that would offend your grandma, product

If your success in any forum depends on forming a small clique of fellow members who have your back no matter what, wouldn't you be sycophants to each other though, similar to the "leftist sycophants" you described?

Nobody should ever have another's back no matter what, in my book. Connection to others is great, but 'truth' is more important. In fact, if you don't have 'truth' you can't really have connection.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

What happens if the new friend becomes friends with their former enemy?
