  1. Thanks to everyone who helped. Now y'all can let this thread sleep for another 8 years
  2. Thanks. I got confused because that seemed to apply to inworld stuff, but if that's also on the MP, makes sense.
  3. I'm not looking for Forum support. Try reading my question, so that at least your useless remarks are accurate, since it's crucial to you to waste your time and mine with them.
  4. Hum... I could try to use "Harmful or Disruptive Content" or "Gaming Policy". Thank you very much!
  5. I'm aware, but I have searched all through the Marketplace info pages, and Flag is all I can find. All the instructions about filing an Abuse Report refer to inworld witnessed activity, not Marketplace items. If you know something that I don't, please keep in mind that I come to a forum seeking information, and a link or a direction would be more helpful than snark.
  6. How can I do this? All I get is "Listing violations", and none of the options allow me to specify why I'm flagging it. It's not because it's incorrectly listed, it's because of its content.
  7. Oh come onnnnnn... the character may well bee 900 years old, but if it really really looks like a child in a sexualized situation, it still plays with the idea that childish may still look sexy. And that is the whole issue. I've seen plenty of rather questionable ads for Kawaii, Anime, etc., which really nail (no pun intended) that concept in ways that can be gross. Obviously pre-teen wide-eyed faces, grabbing a Teddy bear and a lollypop, lean small bodies (with boobs sometimes), with a band-aid on a knee, piggy tails... and BDSM outfits. I don't care if you swear the character is 18+ for the
  8. This is naturally true, but I don't believe Pussycat was talking about fantasy sims in general. The kind she mentioned are often quite misogynistic. The whole idea is degrading. What you said about straight men and lesbian women comes strongly from RL, too. Anyone who has seen "regular" porn knows that lesbian scenes are arousing for the so called male gaze, while gay men is not. I would anwer something to Drake, but it would be a waste of typing. His last reply was about nothing I said, and his intended burn about borderline ageplay was downright creepy, so... Not going there.
  9. "Does that also mean that SL is sexist as there are 6 times the amount of womens clothing, 3 tomes the womens skins and 4 time the womens hairs as there are mens?" Indeed yes and very much yes, a large part of SL is also sexist as hell, athough not in the ridiculous "oh poor white men" way you intend it to imply. There is a huge market for objectification and over sexualization of women -and much MUCH less for men- and, for all that they claim ageplay is against ToS, there are a lot of things out there that are hitting the borderline and they know it, and that is largely addressed to female
  10. I believe that is kind of the point. You are seen as "exotic" with a dark skin, meaning "white is the normal". Sorry to say, that is intrinsecally a racist thinking. Back to my point when I commented, for every good black skin you find (like, really made for a dark race, not a white one recolored), there are hundreds of the classic caucasian, from whiter than Scandinavians to tanned. In SL, white is considered the "normal" and everything else -not only black- is rare to find and exotic.
  11. Perhaps a first step could be to develop something to grant the ability to turn on/off clothing layers. I only own two mesh bodies, so I don't know how all work, but mine have three layers: tattoo, undies and clothing. With a little imagination, one could be wearing three different outfits at the same time, and someone else could change between parts of those three or undress the person. Of course it wouldn't be the same as being able to access a large wardrobe, but at least for a start that seems more doable, perhaps?
  12. I think it's an issue that's always there. You can clearly see that when you're trying to find a good quality skin that fits for an African avatar, that's not just a regular white person skin made darker. You can see it in the traits of the face, the color of the palms and other details. Even the names of the skins, sometimes. For example, I didn't like it that the skin tone called "America" in a certain skin store was the typical Central European white skin (in that same store, the darkest tones, called "Jamaica" and "Africa", are only white skins made darker and not available in all skins, w
  13. I believe it is totally possible to develop something like this in the near future. I'm thinking about the Slink Guest Station, where you stand and anyone can click and recolor your Slink hands and feet. Perhaps something similar, restricted to a specific user can be developed for your partner to be able to click and turn your clothing layers on and off. There are several things that I would like to see further developed regarding mesh bodies, but we have to be patient :-)
  14. I would have appreciated more politeness, less yelling and less unsubstanciated accusations. I haven't written any paranoia; your quoting of LL does not prove any of what I wrote wrong; I don't need to prove anything to YOU or anyone, because I am not making any claims that LL bans avatars for height. I told my experience. Go yell at somebody else.

You cannot use your real size simply because the starter Avatars are all giants and no one bothered the first few days. This way most everyone stayd with this huge Avatar. False. Don't confuse height with any of the rest of this. Wacko random paranoia doesn't help anyone. Chances are whatever got the person banned, if anyone even was banned - was related to conduct they are not willing to admit to others. It certainly was NOT based on height, or the other third of SL that is shorter than you would be l
