In a statement obtained by CNET that's scheduled to be delivered tomorrow, the Justice Department argues that it must be able to prosecute violations of Web sites' often-ignored, always-unintelligible "terms of service" policies. The law must allow "prosecutions based upon a violation of terms of service or similar contractual agreement with an employer or provider," Richard Downing, the Justice Department's deputy computer crime chief, will tell the U.S. Congress tomorrow." http://news.cnet.com/8301-31921_3-57324779-281/doj-lying-on-match.com-needs-to-be-a-crime/ The serious implication of all this is the potential destruction of anonymity on the Internet and how it can become a tool the government could use to silence or prosecute dissenting voices. A service provider such as Facebook or Second Life should and does have the right to enforce their TOS as a matter of Civil Law, but to make it a criminal act could potentially make millions of people criminals who could arbitrarily be targeted for prosecution. _____________________________________________________ There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in it that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted-and you create a nation of lawbreakers-and then you cash in on guilt. -Holden Caulfield, The Grapes of Wrath A crime to lie about your weight? How silly. LOL As far as stopping deliberate premeditated murder on some websites, such as Facebook, I think it's a good idea. The last case I heard about the mother of the neighbor's teenage daughter deliberating cyberbullied her to the point of the girl's suicide. It was deliberate and all the mother of the neighbor's daughter got for cyberbullying the girl to the point of her death was a $5,000 dollar fine. I felt she should have been jailed for deliberate premeditated murder. The young girl is dead. As far as weight, I don't think anyone will really take that seriously. It just sounds so absurd to me for some reason.

For the purposes of this OP, I am interested in your original choices. You can, of course, diverge from that if you like. When you first rezzed, how did you decided upon the gender of your avatar? How did you decide the skin tone/color? As time has passed, I see more content creators making clothing for males and there is much, much more variety in skin colors and ethnicities (I know these are not always the same thing but you get my drift). How did you make your choices? Did you switch somewhere along the line by choosing either the other gender or a radically different skin tone/color (and why)? Do you wonder what it would be like to operate an avatar of another gender? Take on an ethnicity that is different from what you started with? What would stop you from trying something different? Discuss. I like being a women in rl and I love fashion, women's fashion, especially Fae and Goth in rl. My skin tone is a little darker and warmer than my rl skin, which is kind of pasty white in rl, but I am not an albino or anything like that. Just extremely light skinned, the kind that burns and needs at least a 50 sunblock. I do not tan in rl, but have a very light tan in sl. I have to use fake tanning products in rl if I want to try to get any kind of a "tan" without looking like a lobster. As far as being a man in sl, I feel that would limit what I truly love to have in my wardrobe. If I ever create any type of alt, it might be for a Vampire or some other kind of a character simply because my wardrobe inventory is getting very large, and if I wanted to be a Vampire creating an alt would help me keep things more easily sorted. But mostly my choices were based on a love of fashion and jewelry and are pretty banal. I'm sure to most people this sounds boring. I have seen people so extremely creative with their avatars in SL, so I may get some other ideas as my SL progresses in the months to come.

  5. Grid Status, Some May Experience Login Failures. We are working on it at this time. Please keep checking blog. This is the current message I am getting when trying to log into SL, as when I tried a different region, I got the above message. Anyhow, just an FYI for everybody in case lots of people come to the forum saying can't login. Keep checking grid status blog if you can't login. p.s. I hope it is fixed soon.

The 'ad warning' stays clear and easy to read and it is enlarged as well. So no, I do not understand why in your case it has the size of a dot, I could not reproduce your issue on any of my machines/browser. (tried XP and W7) Odd. If I am bored enough I will try it on my Mac too. I never use IE, although I did this morning, and yes IE has the best enlarge font and does stay; however, IE is the one cutting off part of sentences when it's in the stay enlarge font as opposed to having to scroll + and - all the time which is a complete eyestrain. Anyhow, I haven't used IE for years, not since this morning. Try Firefox and you will see how it looks. Ty Rudi, just wanted to post it got switched overnight and SECOND LIFE is now first and IMVU is second. I was trying a bunch of browser's this morning and their tools for enlarge fonts. IE is the best, but cuts off sentences or superimposes things upon one another. And @ Rudi, As far as returning to the forums, it's not something I intend to do too much. I'll stick to inworld and use the forums for info purposes, such as viewer updates.

The ad word on my screen is this teeny tiny thing. Sheesh, the rudness on this board is beyond belief. You wrote that you clicked IMVU. If you look at the snap Caity placed as illustration, you will see that 'Better Life *is* IMVU (see small url under Better Life). Rude for Caity to place an aid to help explain and illustrate? I think not. Just today you sought help in finding a nice Christmas tree. I believe others 'on this board' helped, yes? No, with enlarge font it looks nothing like that screenshot. The ad word was so teeny tiny, I never noticed it. With enlarged font, the word ad is far, far smaller than say a period to any letter in this post. Anyhow, I'm not going to take the time to explain enlarge font how it looks and the extreme difficulties I have been having with enlarge font with any browser since switched to Windows 7. On XP, enlarge font stayed, worked great. With Windows 7, it sort of works on Windows but when enlarge font is the right size, it cuts off part of a sentence. I know about the + and - and control + mouse scrolling as shortcuts, but on XP is just used to stay to the size you wanted it. Anyhow, onto the subject matter. I just checked on Google, and better life (IMVU) is now second. hahaha Something got changed around overnight.

  10. Lately, oh about three days or so, every time I type in SECOND LIFE in my Google bar, the search it puts at the top is this: Better Life, and then some other words, and then IMVU with some votes cast towards IMVU. Why is this going on the top of the search when I type in Second Life and it puts up Better Life, which is IMVU? How do I take a screen shot of this to show what is going on here with Google? I have clicked on Better Life a couple of times now, and that opens IMVU.

I should think that all versions have relevancy in understanding motivations, decisions, mistakes and successes. Also, film versions often abbreviate the story for the sake of the screen. Cracking open a book, reading and seeking to understand even if the perspective is not yours can be an enriching experience. The Diary of Anne Frank is amazing. But makes me cry so terribly every time I watch it. I read it as a youngster, but is gut wrenching. I have not forgotten war, there is merely nothing I can do about it. I use the Serenity prayer about such things I cannot change and try to live as happily as I can.

I hope someone has some suggestions, as I have been searching about a week, but the places I search only have like perhaps five choices at most. I'm looking for some places with lots of trees to look at.
  14. Hi, I've searched at least ten places for Christmas trees inworld and haven't come up with anything I've liked as some look too cardboardy to me and not very 3D. Anyone have any suggestions where there is a huge selection of Christmas trees that I can look at? I searched for a Fae or Elven tree and didn't find anything either, though would love a tree in a Fae style if there are any. (I have a Fae tree in rl with Fae's, butterflies, flower ornaments, etc, but haven't seen anything like this inworld or on MP). Also, one decorated with Angels or at least an Angel on the top of the tree in a traditional style I might also like, but with inworld search I haven't found anything I like. Also, any ideas on what might not look so cardboardy? Any good sculpty trees out there that might look a little more 3D? I'd like to find some places with a large assortment. Also, I purchased an inexpensive tree on MP, but it was very tiny. So, for a tree, I'd prefer inworld looking only. If you have any good suggestions and about how many prims to not have such a cardboardy looking tree would be appreciated. My search has been getting me nowhere close to finding anything. --||-

I love beauty, fashion, the gorgeous artistry of well-made antiques. There are many things I love about history, but war is not one of them, although war is often in the background in many movies, isn't it? However, I don't watch those what I call "blast 'em up war movies". I'd rather surround myself with beauty whenever and whereever I can. Even when I go to a museum, I avoid the war stuff. I'd rather go look at the pretty stuff.

  22. Scylla Rhiadra wrote: In memory of all of those hundreds of millions -- soldiers and civilians -- who have perished in the last century through the all-too-human illusion that anything is ever solved by war. Time to put the "same old lie" to rest. This is by Wilfred Owen, who died in action on the Western Front on November 4, 1918, "Dulce Et Decorum Est" Bent double, like old beggars under sacks, Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge, Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs And towards our distant rest began to trudge. Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots, But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind; Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots Of tired, outstripped Five-Nines that dropped behind. Gas! GAS! Quick, boys! – An ecstasy of fumbling, Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time; But someone still was yelling out and stumbling And flound'ring like a man in fire or lime . . . Dim through the misty panes and thick green light, As under a green sea, I saw him drowning. In all my dreams before my helpless sight, He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning. If in some smothering dreams, you too could pace Behind the wagon that we flung him in, And watch the white eyes writhing in his face, His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin; If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs, Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues, – My friend, you would not tell with such high zest To children ardent for some desperate glory, The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est Pro patria mori. How, interesting, that person was a "war" poet. I wonder if the character in the movie "All Quiet on the Western Front" and the character in the German book by a different title was written about this person? Paul Bäumer Paul Bäumer is the main character and narrator. At 19 years of age, Paul enlists in the German Army and is deployed to the Western Front where he experiences the severe psychological and physical effects of the war. Before the War, Paul was a creative, sensitive, and passionate person, writing poems and having a clear love for his family. But as the war changed his attitude and personality, poems and other aspects of his past life become something Paul could not remember having any link to, and he learns to disconnect himself from his feelings. He feels he can't tell anyone about his experiences, and feels like an outsider where his family is concerned. By the end of the book, Paul realizes that he no longer knows what to do with himself and decides that he has nothing more to lose. The war appears to have snuffed out his hopes and dreams, which he feels he can never regain. Anyhow, we can strive for peace, but Iran just recently claimed they have a missle that will strike Israel. Iran has had several articles now eluding to possibly targeting Israel soon that just came out about a week ago. I think this dictator of Iran is as crazy as Hitler.

Alternatively he could be a reference to Freyr or Ing, who is the traditional 'King of the Elves' in Germanic mythology.[2] [edit] French heroic song The name Oberon got its literary start in the first half of the 13th century from the fairy dwarf Oberon that helps the hero in the chanson de geste, titled Les Prouesses et faitz du noble Huon de Bordeaux. When Huon, son of Seguin count of Bordeaux, passed through the forest where he lives, he was warned against Oberon by a hermit, but his courtesy had him answer Oberon's greetings, and so gain his aid in his quest: having killed Charlot, the Emperor's son, in self-defense, Huon must visit the court of the amir of Babylon and perform various feats to win a pardon, and only with Oberon's aid does he succeed. This elf appears dwarfish in height, though very handsome; he explains that at his christening, an offended fairy cursed him to the height (an example of the wicked fairy godmother folklore motif), but relented and as compensation gave him great beauty. As Alberich features as a dwarf in the Nibelungen, the dwarfish height was thus explained.[3] The Wikipedia about Oberon talks about him being an elf or a drawf elf also. Anyhow, I'm talking about the modern form of fairy dress which is an offshot of the gothic and emo movement in dress which involves the wearing of flowered clothing and jewelry, whispy fabrics, fairy style glitter, but especially flowers everywhere. Oh, and lots of butterflies and dragonflies, plus there are fairy skirts. There are some unisex shirts I do recall, but the women's is cut a little differently, and the men's are sleeveless in style. @ Griffin, I don't see too many man (actually) none at all dressed in ferns where I live, but I like the look for SL and RL. That kind of looks like a wood nymph though also.

As far as warlocks, oh. But, there are not men allowed in covens, not that I know of. Some covens are limited to males or females only, others are specifically for gay Pagans, and some are for families and married couples and exclude single members. In Gardnerian Wicca, covens are as much as possible composed of male/female pairs for balance. Oh, well see I'm not really Wiccan, but I find that logical and fair. As far as men wanting to dress the fairy style in real life, I have no problem with that. I have seen these unisex type of t-shirts that are sort of tie dyed in very rich, dark colors with roses or other flowers in them. Those look cool on a guy. I like those t-shirts on both men and women. Perhaps I should consider designing a fairy line of clothing for men? There is some that is cool, but it not well know yet. ETA: I think men might look cool in rich toned tied dyed butterfly t-shirts as well.

But, there are not men allowed in covens, not that I know of. So, how can thar be male witches if they aren't allowed in covens to my knowledge? However, there are always exceptions, such as they can cook. However, in real life, the fairy form of dress comes not only with a lot of glitter but with a lot of flowers and butterflies, but especially a lot of flowers; flowers in your hair, in your earrings, in your necklaces, in your dresses, in your shoes, everywhere. Fairy dress is a form of gothic dress and is a description of a style of dress such as preppy or athleisure.
