I can't find any settings to eliminate this porno pile of guano "trending" in my.secondlife.com area.

What is up with this junk? I didn't invited these people on my page!

So far I haven't found any way of switching it off either, except not to log into mysecondlife.com at all.

It is assumed by Linden Lab, that people who partake in their equivalent of Facebook will want to see that sh1te!

When I go to my web profile, it defaults to the Following tab. I never even realized there was a Trending tab.

If you don't want to see that stuff, then just don't click on that tab.  I sure haven't missed anything.

perhaps turning "adult" off in the preferences helps?
It works for some other "features" .. i think it's a bit limited.. wanting to have ability to have adult selected, doesn't mean the meat has to slap in the face all the time.

The "big" deal?  "Just don't click it" although it's not an area I care to examine on a regular basis, nonetheless I should have the CHOICE whether I want it on *my* profile area.  It was never there before which I should have probably stated when I first posed this question.  It tells me SL has turned it's "safety for the Resident" over to their greed mongering. Sex sells on SL!  Duh, I just care to see nekkid women on MY timeline TYVM.

Nonetheless there is no way to remove this junk.  That imho, is on the fault of Linden Lab for not "allowing" a user to determine what they want or do not want on their own profile.

Nope. Has no effect whatsoever!

Just use an ad-blocker to delete the button.  

Uh...that does no good. There is no "button" that's the point! LoL.

SL has changed it's principles about how much they will allow our profiles to be flooded with crap-ola. Years ago you would have never seen this which is why I'm surprised LL's are not allowing the Resident to control their own trending...which is what brought me here for help. It's abundantly clear at this point it's a crap shoot to remedy.

I don't understand. This is what the my.secondlife.com page looks like:

There is a button. Is this not what you're talking about?

Meanwhile, if I go to your page, there is no trending.

So it's not like other people are putting stuff on "your profile."

AND?

Lookie here, it's very much still on my profile (and this isn't the worst of it):

You've included a screenshot of the exact same page, with the exact same buttons visible...

Look to the top-middle. There are two buttons there. The left one says "Following" and the right one says "Trending." The "Trending" tab is only visible to you, not anybody else visiting your profile.

When you first enter the page, are the trending posts the ones you see before touching anything? If so, I'm not sure what would cause that. Try clearing your cookies and re-bookmark the page while the "Following" tab is open.

Yes Wulfie. We agree. Trending is on *my* profile. When I go to yer profile, it doesn't show the Trending. It's there for the user. Which is why I object to it. I don't want it, on *my* profile. YES these people are indeed posting this stuff, for it to end up on *my* profile that *I* did NOT choose.  Hence my question how can I suppress it, get rid of it? AR'ing it would never work since technically, it's not a violation of TOS to post yer avatar nekkid, showing sexual poses etc. There is no button in which a Resident can choose to have it on or off. THAT was the whole reason I posted what I did, here, in this forum like LL's suggest when you run into a prob (a lotta help they are huh?). 

As a long time Resident I can tell you it was never a prob back in the day, because LL were busy making all of us friends instead of pushing their ridiculous greed mongering. 

In any case, by what I'm seeing here, there is no solution until either someone haq's their faulty program or a clever script writer comes up with a new gig.  Grins.

Thanks anyways!

Nobody is actually posting on your "profile".  They are sharing stuff on their web page that is being shown on your web page under the Trending category.  That is technically different.

Since there is nothing in our options/settings that will remove that tab entirely, you will just have to learn to ignore it -- DO NOT CLICK THE TAB and if your web page is defaulting to that tab, then follow Wulfie's suggestion about clearing cache and re-bookmarking it when it is in the Following tab.

Additionally, you can file a JIRA to request that Residents be given a way to not have the tab at all - though, unless it is a really easy change or lots of people complain, it is unlikely that LL will actually do anything with the JIRA.    https://jira.secondlife.com

I'm not sure it's even possible to make trending come up by default what ever i do it always defaults to following even if i've logged out or exited the page on trending and any content you don't like on following you can remove from your feed
The stuff seen in trending has been posted by other users to their own feeds and from what i can make out has received a minimum of two interactions likes/comments from people that have viewed that post

But..not...by *me*.  I'm not following any of these sorts, neither have I interacted with any of them.

Not if you can't answer simple questions...

If you say so. I've answered enough to your inquiries evidently not enough to your satisfaction.

We'll just agree...to disagree.

I will always believe a person is entitled to have a choice on something that's flopping on their turf.  It's becoming abundantly clear from your .02's worth you really don't have an issue. Ok, whatever.

Also, as I mentioned, again, previously ,it wasn't always like this.

The "Trending" entries are not on your profile - it is a tab made available for you to view when you view your profile, in case you are curious about which posts are popular with other users.  Nothing to do with you specifically - it's a general what's trending site wide of posts on my.secondlife.com.

Thanks. But at this point we're just spinning on the head of a pin. 

I see the Trending Tab.  I see people I've never interacted with, have no connection too, or care about, filling the area with crazy stuff.  Stuff that used to be for me, and my SL friends. Go figure.

Repeated for the cheap seats in the way back.

A Resident should ALWAYS have control over an area that has their name, their profile their billing info etc on. 

New trend (LoL) by LL's *obviously*.
