Well... "f** off" and block. 🙂

I was quickly shopping this weekend, only going to stores to test a demo, buy and out again. Suddenly another lady start to IM me with "fix your alpha, I can see your legs", "Hide your Maitreya f

Tell her you can see her bottom, and it's very funny.

Inquiring minds would like you to share...? 😏

Well, she asked her friends, they freaked out and thought i had some sort of hacker viewer as they had "no idea how i made her naked!! its not possible!!" for weeks they would randomly IM me claiming i was "breaking the TOS" and they reported me to "The Labs." Funny thing was, they all worked at a club so i showed up one night, derendered all their clothing and took a snapshot. Sent it to each of them, then blocked them all. They were the screechiest Karens i have ever met. Always on voice. Always the loudest.

One of the Lindens saw me as naked from 3 meters away.  My clothes only became visible when they cammed in closer. Glitches still happen!

That sounds more like bad LOD. To test it, set your LOD to 1.125 (the default) and zoom out three metres. If your clothes disappear, my unsolicited advice is to make a note of the creator and don't buy from them again! It's bad design, not a glitch.

I'll check that but will point out that some viewer devs at the meeting saw me clothed. The difference perhaps was that the one who saw me naked was on the S/L viewer while the others were on Firestorm.

Possibly. I think the lowest default on Firestorm is a LOD of 2.0, which could make all the difference, although you might find your avatar is still noticeably naked from a few metres away, just not quite so few.

"Thank you for your concern, but as you can see I'm doing what everyone else is doing here (or trying to), so of course I'm going to look wonky, but have you also thought that it's maybe just you?"

Or (mood dependent)

"Since we're doing the whole unsolicited advice thing now, your clothes clash with your skin."

Unsolicited critique is rude.  Telling me something is missing?  That all depends on how the information is delivered.  Snark=snark.  Polite=polite

Derendering is so fun!  Girls get more mad when you derender their hair.

Yes! I think the OP complaint is really about the tone. We're all human, nobody likes being snapped at or told off for something that's quite trivial, when it's easier to say "Just to let you know, your feet have detached!"

If I get an IM like that, I'll rebake and refresh attachments. If they were right, fix it. If they were wrong, ignore it. Then move on, either way. That's all anyone needs to do. Don't know why everybody insists on making these things into big issues.

that is very true!~ i am going to say i have had people rez me in weird, where i can see myself just fine, rezzed and everything. sometimes doing the rebake and refreshing attachments can help. i truly don't see an issue. :D

When its something glitched like a missing alpha or my head decing "aright imma head out" I usually check if they are right, fix if yes and thank them after jokingly grumbling about the fickle spaghetti code.

 

If its my acutal aesethic choices and it wasn't asked for they get sent to the block list because I have notime for that thank you but no thank you.

A long time ago I had someone tell me that my boots were too big and clunky. I thought to myself, "Sooo what's my prize if I change my boots? Do I get a pass to some super secret no-clunk boot club, or do I just get to hang out with you evaluating other people's feet?"

I loved those big clunky boots.

As for de-rendering, you can de-render me all day long. That's pretty weird of you though.

Right click + block. No need to waste time here. 
If they only wanted to tell me that body parts are missing - thats 99.999% their problem.
If they only wanted to tell me that my clothes are missing - nobody cares - someone else will tell me - maybe.
