    You might learn a lot simply by reading the General Discussion forum here.

    It is a prerequisite that you have to be a masochist to participate.

    Except for me.

    Are you the sadist in this relationship?

    That would dramatically understate my involvement.

    Yes, I also have a superiority complex.

    An entirely justifiable one.

    And as for narcissism, you can always depend on the one you love.

    Although that multiple personality syndrome does worry me occasionally.

    Perhaps they have problems passing the literacy test?

    So, how did you cheat?

    You were right, it was a bug, and it was fixed long time ago.

    You mean, like before 12-11-2011 - almost two years ago - when this thread was last live?

    Let's be generous and assume that you have been hibernating for an extended time.

    Or that maybe you are an AIbot.

    AI standing for Artificial Idiocy.

    Rather than that you are either incompetent or deperate for any sort of attention.

    Yes, most kids put away their Legos when they reach adolescence. By then they're too busy setting up their little lunch table cliques to determine who's "cool" and who isn't and to find fault with and pass notes about those who they feel to be beneath themselves.

    Fortunately, most of them grow out of that too.

    Unless they become bankers.

    Or journalists.

    The tells being, real eye contact, body dynamics, pheromones, tics, posturing, touch - and with the advent of voice the tone of your conversational style became possible but the  other "tells" were still missing.


    Most people are good at the obvious tells in rl.

    Few are really good at the non-obvious ones.

    It takes real insight to understand the subtle online versions of them.

    It helps to have teleempathically-enabled mirror neurons.

    I call it being epsychic.

    But it's a bit like x-ray vision.

    Because it helps you see through people.


  6. Second Life is now a milestone on the Internet Highway.

    The future is communities of individuals who communicate with each other.

    Not individuals who create things.

    Which is what Second Life was set up to be.

    And which it was, and still is, fairly successful at.

    Except it has no growth potential.

    And therefore no commercial future.

    Kids put away lego before they meet adolescence.

    Except the obsessives.

    Second Life is the same.

    A place for building castles in the air.

    And dressing up dollies to play princess in them.

    (Opinion simplified so even the more intellectually challenged forumites might understand it.)

    Yes 600£ is ridiculous. I'm sorry you have to pay that for an iPhone. But I live in Canada and Bell Canada gave me the phone for free. They are more interested in keeping me as a loyal subscriber. I guess you can always move here. There's more than enough room.

    I heard about a competition in Canada for which the first prize was an iPhone.

    Second prize was two iPhones.

    And Canadian citizenship.
