I know you're not a fan of social media, but its very good for situations like this.

I do Twitter sometimes but avoid FB like the plague. The store did post on FB on how they're stopping "thieves" and mentioned what happened. They have since took the posts down. As for Twitter the lawyer is advising not using social media as things can get twisted around very easy, much worse then how some threads on this mboard derail.

I'd have to agree with the lawyer on that.  News stories have more depth, so they aren't likely to get twisted the way stuff can on social media.   While social media can be absolutely fabulous for attention and such, it can also bite you in the a$$ faster than you can blink.

Like LittleMe, I would agree with the lawyer.  There's a possibility somebody misinterprets a few details and stories become something like the Telephone game on social media.  What a PR headache that would be.

I already unsubscribe from wow, good ridden

Done the same, uninstalled. 

I just don't think it's a game I can ever really enjoy again. The best times, the times I was having the most fun, was the times things were at their worst for people at the company and that's just horrifying.

So I have just had 10 days off due to having no car thanks to being backed into and it being written off by my insurance company and was expecting to start back at work tomorrow. So instead of having my normal five clients over 3 1/2 hrs....I have ONE client for 30 mins...at 9:30am.  

Seriously?  You couldn't have reassigned her and given me one more day off?  Ugh!

I've never even purchased any of their games much less WoW.

   I'm tempted by the Diablo II remaster, but .. Then I remembered the WC III remaster, so I may well pass.

This has been a long time coming. 

I never worked for Blizzard, but I worked for a company that hired a lot of their ex employees. Where I worked was not immune.

It just makes me angry. It's why I left game dev.

I'm currently unable to work out how three people can sit face-to-face (as mentioned elsewhere) and it bothers me.  For some reason it put me in mind of this.

 

 

What I'm trying to figure out is how someone in CA will mediate face to face between two other people, say one in France and the other in Brazil. 

Yeah, no. If you can't settle your differences with someone you walk away. End of. There is no closure that you don't create for yourself. Just as an apology isn't about you, it's about the person you harmed and what you can do to fix or prevent.

Not an easy lesson to learn. Some people never do learn.

Today I have a three part peeve.

  1. Being added to subscibos from stores I never joined just because I may have purchased something from them once upon a time.
  2. Having to TP around all these stores to unsubscribe from said subscribos just in case I may purchase something from them in the future as blocking will hinder delivery of future imaginary purchases.
  3. Having to hunt around to find the offending subscribos!

A live performer in world that uses a recording during his/her "performance." Before I gave up running a live music club I had a suspicion one was doing that and also a couple PMs from those who thought the same.  I recorded 2 of his shows and compared the audio and was exactly the same. Since I did this at the end of my reign of the club, I never confronted the performer on that, but I did tell the new owner about that and was up to her if she wanted to 86 him or not.

There is no difference between a live performance and prerecorded in SL. Even the expectation that who ever made the recording will be around to shout out or interact with an audience is flawed.

With the exception of request based performances, 3 or 4 sets & logged in to interact over the audio stream or in local and you'd never know .. this has been the norm in SL for the last 10 years at least. Even the lazy ones who only prerecord one set requires effort to spot.

Real life neighbors.

1st mention is the house north of me (landlord doesn’t allow a fence) & they have somehow killed a buck (deer)/& cut its head off & stuck it on top of the storage building in their backyard along our shared property line.  It’s been there for a few months & as such has gone thru various states of decomposition.

Mr. Landlord will not intervene after myself & another neighbor advised him.  (It’s all his or his fathers property & let’s not forget it’s not even deer season here so we’re assuming he hit it with a car?  But why is the head rotting in the backyard ?!?!) I will not call the police or sheriff out of fear for my own safety.  I did that once in another state to report a neighbor who chained their dog to a post in summer with no shade or water.  Police popped by, the neighbors took the dog inside for the night & next morning my tires were slashed.  
 

Neighbor 2- I live in the middle of a newer 3 unit duplex.  My neighbor on my west side has been here since before we moved in (summer 2018) & she’s a little eccentric, but she knows it & is really my only friend here (we live 100 miles away from “home” for work reasons) & is a great neighbor.

The other unit has been here since early May.  (The other two families who have lived & left there since I’ve been here  were buying & building homes).  These people lit fireworks in our shared driveway for a week this month.  Behind my vehicle.  They smoke & throw their ciggy butts everywhere.  They drop garbage wherever they happened to be(Mondays find was a half eaten taco by my car-those don’t blow on the wind).  Since they’ve moved in I’ve heard noises I’ve never heard from that unit.  Mostly frequent sexy times, with a thump thump thump against the shared bedroom wall.  I’m not sure how many live there, but two males in their 20s sit on the bumper of their car & bump their bass while smoking things (& pitching the butts) and never miss a chance to stare us down.

I should thank them.  They have lit a fire under our butts to work OT & save up to move back home- finally going to buy a house.  ….with land lol.

Hate it when people act like this 😡 I would say report it, but I also know I'd feel intimidated. Good luck with your move! ☘️

Oh for sure.  I not so jokingly told my hubby that those people will wind up on a true crime tv show.  😱

I’ve pretty much ordained that we don’t look over there anymore & I don’t want my kid out after dark over there.   I totally neglected to mention this thing with their dirt bikes.  I live in a tiny suburb in what passes for hills here.  My street turns from 75 year old pavement to mud right at my mailbox, and there’s fields & thick overgrown grasses & trees on up the muddy road.

One day someone from the deer head house stopped their dirt bike behind our cars & revved their engine for so long that my living room filled with smoke.  I went outside & couldn’t actually see him thru the cloud of exhaust until he walked out of it & across the side yard that leads to his back yard (leaving the dirt bike behind my car)...  
 

There’s nothing to be done but move =/.

I hope we pick a decent spot.  I’ve had some really strange neighbors.  One house we lived in, the kids next door threw dirty baby diapers on our roof & shot Roman candles at our front porch.  
Another house the old lady next door would dig up the monkey grass around the flower beds at our house & plant it in her own (I know she did cause she told me).  She also would stomp in my front yard & tell me I had “soft dirt” & peek at us thru the slats in the fence.  The previous owner had received an insurance check after a tornado to replace the roof but she bought the fence instead, & this neighbor complained all the time to me about it.  I pointed out each time that this was a rental & not my problem.  
The neighbor on the other side of that house accused me of calling the police & telling them she was making porno films in her garage.  I have no clue what she was going on about, but I always assumed it was the other neighbor.  
Ive had potted ferns disappear of my porch at one apartment & a sideswipe hit & run down the entire side ofmy car.

(I could keep going on other super neighbors but I know I’m 😴 likely)

I really need to win the lottery & buy a small island cause my luck with neighbors is baaaaad.  
 

(for the record I try to be a good neighbor, I let the decent neighbor piggyback my internet & pay for her to have an online tv service & buy them groceries cause they’re an older lady & her even older mom but for the most part I hermit & leave folks alone).
