JFC people I'm not an idiot and I have been in SL long enough to know more than most people in SL know about SL. Please, stop assuming I don't know.

I am gonna be blunt but polite here. We are not calling you an idiot, we are just saying that this day and age. That perma on the internet means jack squat. Also it doesn't take someone who has been in SL for a long time, to know a lot about SL. I knew a fair bit by 9 months. Lol

A bit more than a peeve but having to say goodbye to a furball when you know it's the right thing but the worst decision to have to make.  He has gone to chase balls in the clouds on a walk with Ki no

I don't think that's a metaphor, but whether or not it is, I think you could have found a better way to express yourself. 

Back when I was a noob, we didn't HAVE no fancy HUDs.  We just filled up our inventories with hundreds o' texture pants and tops with diffr'nt colors.  You youngsters are spoiled. And we walked t

PLEASE, stop assuming I don't understand. I understand exactly what was said.

We weren't assuming, at least I wasn't. I was just explaining there are work arounds, if you know that is totally fine.

Peeve --- when a thread starts to derail and risking getting secured by a mod/admin.

Another one: When you're at a red light with a "No Turn On Red" sign and the car behind you honks like crazy, to the point of driving over the sidewalk to get past you. Happened the other day.

It doesn't matter if people can create new accounts and get right back in. The point is they are not allowed to do that and when LL sees someone doing that, the new accounts are banned as well. Only a fool would keep creating new accounts after being banned.

Actually there is someone in sl that does it.. he creates new accounts every  2-3 days.. and rejoins groups and spams them again and again.  He had been doing this since around  2010 and ll can't stop him.

So it does happen.. not everyone just gives up.

He's been around for years and so has a few others that do the same stupid thing. If LL really wanted to they could stop him/them. It just isn't financially feasible.

I know of a few that have so many accounts its ridiculous. One person I was friends with had over 100 accounts. LL could stop people from doing that, too, but again, financial feasibility.

Technically the only way they could is to make everyone  verify identity when creating an account or else it won't be approved. And make everyone use only their viewer with special coding that prevents spoofing of ip/email/mac/serial..use of vpn or proxy..

Even doing that it still would be possible..

Nothing is ever impossible on the internet.. except making rlv permanent and inescapable..

I'm not going argue about it. They don't need to do all that. There are other "non-technical" ways. I'm sure if you put a little time into thinking about it you'd come up with one or two.

Yeah.. shut down sl.. that is the only other true way. 

Any other method could be defeated.  Even  trying to sue the person into stoping would not work.  Pressing legal charges would not stop them. 

Not everyone would care about such things.

Yeah they would ultimately have to shut down SL. As you said. Because even with those work arounds, and if SL had an anti cheat system like that. People could just up and make a linux ran system and have windows as a virtual machine. No anti cheat system works, people will find ways to reverse engineer it, or find other ways to circumnavigate. So as you said before, they would ultimately would have to shut down SL altogether

Oh for ... This "argument" ought to have been dropped several posts ago or taken elsewhere.

Want to go back and forth over the effectiveness of the varied ban methods? Make. A. New. Thread. For. It.

People who use an x at the end of a text/message instead of a full stop or just  leaving it blank.  Or worse, things like "How are you xxx"  Stop.  I don't need a kiss at the end of every message in a text conversation especially from a casual aquaintance.  I can deal with bye xx or night xx but meh to the rest

I would agree with you. Or when they write run on sentences, in multiple texts. So you have no chance to catch your breath. So by the time you are done, you are winded and are like. Use punctuation God Dangit. Lol

How cute ... Someone got bent out of shape over a peeve being aired.

Bent out of shape... lol.. not even close.. but you seemed to have been enough to need to make a reply. 

A peeve to me is just a very minor irritation.. similar to a fly constantly buzzing around.

So try again.. buzz buzz buzz..

When you try to enter a sim, but it is full because people start camping there...sheesh

Well it is their right to stay as long as the sim owner permits them to..

No one has to leave to make room for others just because they think someone should..

It's  called try a different time or day..

Yeah this is true but people should be considerate enough to know that other people might want to enter the sim... they can go afk in any other sim, but we can't get what we want from other sims. By sims, I mean shopping events specifically.
