    Oh, I don't know . . .

    Some people might embrace the concept wholeheartedly.

    That's what currently happens.. yep.

    That would block honest threads about escorts in SL though.

    No it wouldn't.

    Escorts don't have telephone numbers in SL.

    Escorts don't offer services in Mumbai in SL.

    I could go on.

    But I won't.

    Because I am not a Bayesian engine.

    This isn't going to help me with my needs. Let me give you an idea... I myself am in the 93% of literary understanding... that would be literary IQ. And let me tell you, I full well understand the TOS, and according to most of what happens, those who wrote it do not know what they have said.

    Could someone translate this post into English please?

    German Umlauts ( 2 dots above  characters like a, i, e, u, and o, which are regularly used in German language ) are prohibited to be posted at all.


    Umlauts are the Devil's punctuation!

    LL is quite right to ban these insidious little dots.

    The take up screen space unnecessarily, and use up more ink when you print.

    They confuse people with exaggerated astigmatisms that mistake them for colons.

    They confuse people even more if they think a colon is another word for the large intestine.

    The biggest mistake, though, is calling them umlauts.

    The umlaut is actually the sound change where a vowel is modified to resemble the vowel immediately following.

    Those pesky little double dots are actually a diacritic called a diaeresis or trema.

    Just out of interest, is there anything in the forum's rules or ToS that says that threads must not go off-topic?

    Does the forum actually have a ToS? Or is that a figment of the 'managers' imaginations?

    Off Topic Content
    : Please keep your commentary relevant to the discussion and within the format that the forum, board or question and answer area require. (For example, in the Answers section, please follow the Q&A format of the discussion.)
    Content that is blatantly off topic is not permitted

    So content that is subtly off topic is implicitly allowed.

    Did you know there is a chocolate bar called Topic sold throughout Europe?

    Why did you drag that dead thread out? Its from 2011! The person is maybe not even in SL anymore.

    Because she's a cat.

    And cats are stupid.

    Most of them can't even spell cheeseburger correctly.

    I would tell you to get lost if i was asked that, if people come to SL for a relationship then GOD help them.

    My kids call me that.

    GOD.

    Grumpy Old Dad.

    I wouldn't help people have a relationship in SL.

    In fact, I discourage people from having them in RL.

    The disappointment is longer-term and the consequences more costly.

    I would get the person to cam, and then ask then some questions that only they would know the answers to, such as; "What was I wearing the day we met?"

    My wife asked me that once.

    Only once.

    She was very disappointed.

    Nowadays I always keep a small notebook on me with relevant facts recorded in it, like the colour of her eyes, her shoe size and how many sugars she takes in her tea.

    In case she interrogates me further.

  11. A sensible answer from me for a change.

    It's probably a spambot.

    It has been programmed to look for forum threads with "newbie" or similar in the title.

    Programmed badly, because it does not take thread date into account.

    Then it has been programmed to post vacuous text that is sufficiently anodyne that it can be used for just about any forum.

    If it receives any sort of response it will level up and probably post an irrelevant lolcat.

    Further responses will invoke its "commercial" mode and it will praise the virtues of a certain brand of brake fluid.

    Suggesting that it presents less of a health risk to drink than vodka.

    Because it is easier to stop.

    Or it may be a clueless newbie.
