    In the context of Rhonda's post, it's the pronoun 'we'. Because many subs capitalise their dominant's pronoun while using lowercase for their own pronoun (regarding them as separate), they use W/we as a contraction of 'We/we'.

    Dark and gothic tonight...

  4. redelivery

    The Catwa Head Friends group is for support with the head only (as in: "how do I do X or Y with my Catwa head?") For all things pertaining to redeliveries you need to contact Catwa Clip herself. Please ensure that you read her profile and picks first for how to contact her. Make sure you've not accidentally muted or blocked Catwa Clip. If you purchased instore and are trying to use the vendor's redelivery webpage (and you can't redeliver anything from any store at that webpage, then it's probably an issue with the vendor system, and they're probably aware of it and trying to fix it.) If it's a Marketplace purchase, make sure that you're logged into Marketplace on the avatar that you made the original purchase with, and not an alt. If the head is an older one* that was gifted to you from Marketplace by someone else, you will again need to contact Catwa Clip and give her enough information that she can ascertain you were the recipient of a gifted head. To do this, right-click any non-mesh item, such as a notecard, in your Catwa head folder, look at the Properties option, and note down the date that you received the item. Mention this in your notecard to her, to help her find the original transaction more easily. Also, mention the name of the avatar who gifted you the head. *The whole redelivery confusion over gifted heads is, I believe, one of the reasons why Catwa doesn't offer gifting options in her store. To gift a Catwa head you must buy a gift voucher and give it to the recipient so they can buy the head for themselves. ETA: I'm not sure why you posted this in Missed Connections. Don't be surprised if your post is moved to a more appropriate sub-forum by the moderators.
  5. Just Ignore and let this one die

    To follow up on my "Grr!" post, I have received a genuine and heartfelt apology over the matter. Unfortunately, five years of work was undone by what happened, but there's nothing to be done to rectify that. The apology was enough to soothe my anger (which I later realised was actually upset bewilderment and not rage). And then last night - yay, homophobia reared its head into my life again! Large group chat, and someone made the active decision to hurt someone else by directing slurs at them, to the point of bragging that her words had hit home. Welcome to a group ban, multiple abuse reports, and multiple land and store bans, lady. Hope you enjoy them. Me? I threw on my heels, fishnets, and hotpants, plastered on even more makeup, and strutted my own brand of fabulous out into SL last night. I might also make a new glammed-out, fierce and proud skybox, like I did on a previous occasion when someone tried to make me feel like less than a human being. A kiss in exchange for a blow.
  6. These numbers have got to be wrong

    Elba must be pretty boring this time of year.

    Homophobic abuse always makes me push the envelope even more... Credits here.
  8. Account security

    I've just checked my most recent credit card statement, and - for that card at least - I see non-sterling transactions listed as follows: name of company - amount in USD @ [exchange rate] = UK sterling amount. So I do see the US$ value, but - as stated before - every card is different and it will vary from country to country.
  9. Account security

    UK Paypal for an alt account (not Skell, hence I'm not concerned about the date and amount being visible), with all identifying information removed:
  10. Account security

    Depending on the credit card or bank in question, it often does show the original USD amount as well as the [insert currency of your own country here] amount. Both my bank and credit card here in the UK do. They show the dollar amount, the conversion rate, and the final £ amount. UK Paypal also shows the original dollar amount as well as the conversion to UK sterling. Laugh at others and call them stupid if you wish, but bear in mind that their experience with their own bank/credit card in their own country may not be the same as yours. Granted, they should likewise not assume that their experience is the same as yours, but that doesn't make them stupid; they're simply unaware of how the hundreds of other banks and credit cards around the world delineate 'other currency' payments on statements.

  14. No point

    I sincerely hope you're trying to troll the forum in a humorous manner with this, but in case you're not... You specifically need a gay friend? Why? For his stereotypical sense of style? His mincing wit? His sassy cut-downs? Permit me to rephrase your post in an attempt to nudge you gently out of your current mindset and make you look at your request in a new light. Imagine a white person saying the following: "Hi anyone know where all the black clubs are? I need a black friend I'm open to any shade of black or brown. I mean I need friends period, but I want to be the white person to someone else's black person. Find me a black husband." Pretty offensive, isn't it? Friends are not accessories. You don't advertise for one of each colour/orientation/ religion, etc, so you can complete the friendship version of a charm bracelet. Friends come into your life and you love them for being friends, not for being gay or Jewish or black. You also say that you're open to any sexual orientation, but then you state you want a "gay husband". So [insert sexual orientation here] women, sorry, but it seems that you're not required for the collection. The jury is out on whether a transman would be acceptable, I guess. Maybe he'd be a separate charm altogether on the bracelet. Lastly, if you'd tagged this with something less offensive you might not have got at least this gay man quite as irritated by your post as he already is. Sure, some gay men don't mind the term, but many do. Just because that term is applied to women in general, that doesn't mean the root of it isn't offensive to many gay men. Just as you should leave it up to individual PoC to use and reclaim the n-word if they wish to, try leaving it up to individual members of the LGBT community to let you know if they mind you using that word.
