But some people here reported many Germans in SL would rather not be careful about it. You can say it's their fault then if they get in trouble, but perhaps SL should at least warn them. (I don't think it makes sense to prosecute these people for minor offenses like just using pose balls. I think the German law is going to far here, but it does, so if those police officers in SL don't find more severe stuff and get bored, who knows.) Having better age verification can also get the Germans out of trouble and, more importantly, would protect more minors from being confronted with awful stuff. A virtual world without porn would eliminate all these problems and even the perhaps biggest problem of SL, that stigma. This police in SL angle bothers me, here's why: - German as a language is not only spoken by residents or citizens of Germany. - Gaining RL information without consent is against ToS (simplified) - To gain certain information legally would require intervention from LL surely? and if so... - LL could stand to become embroiled in multiple cases daily or weekly when they are already short staffed. It does not seem plausible to me that LL would countenance interference at such a low level from non American authority. (I am not American) A few new people do claim to be RL police "on a mission" or "here to fight for justice in SL" There are even groups who proclaim to be the "SL Police". I wonder if you haven't been deceived.

You do realize that you are being the one with the fragile ego here. All you have done is try and force your viewpoint on others. You are trying to suppress everyone that doesn't think like you. By your own admission you don't think women should be allowed to be "submissives" because its misogynistic. You are perpetuating misogyny by telling a woman what she can and can not do with her own body. You are the thing you hate most. You have ZERO rights to tell anyone what they can do. Well said Drake

I think he meant you lot, but not me Oh dear me yes, I must remember to put that on my CV. Good to see you around, Phil. Hey, I think I'll pop around to a few of the university and medical sims to see the "socially inept weirdos" in their natural habitat.

  5. You are trying to defend the indefensible, your way would deny any legitimate adult content and drive those who enjoy it to employ subversive means with zero control by the authorities. By creating maturity ratings, Linden Labs has empowered the residents and content creators of second life, not taken that power away. Remove the maturity ratings and people will take advantage of it and you will find more adult content in general areas then there currently is. You seem to have an extremely naive outlook on what actually goes on in Second Life and other virtual platforms, I challenge you to spend an hour or two on a sim of each maturity rating and observe yourself, just how much adult content, from gestures, clothing, chat and voice there is in most areas. This extends into the Internet at large and into RL. Most serious BDSMers that I know, including a few in Germany, take their fantasies to RL or use other programs such as Skype or teamspeak to enjoy their pastime / lifestyle. They use SL mostly for social or educational means within their peer group.
  6. Thanks to Dres for the heads up on this thread. Thomas, In most virtual worlds, you will get some form of adult content. By what you are saying the makers of Star Wars should remove the twilek dancing girls and the elf girls in WoW should be wearing burkhas. There is one thing that both you and the German government can do about it: block it, stop logging on. Oh and by the way good luck with the new Germanistan.
  7. Most welcome hon :smileyhappy:
  8. Try adding to your outfit directly from your inventory. If you have learned how to unpack boxes, then find the folder with the cloting in it. i.e jeans and a tshirt, wear them or add by right clicking the item in the folder in your inventory.
  9. Hi Ash I would recomend Ko-Ro-Ba, Glorious Ar, and for more of a RP environment Mjolnir and perhaps the isle of tarns, Lar Torvis is also an option. They do exist and their are some of us that still enjoy gor in SL. I wish you good luck and if you need more help please drop me a notecard. Leanne

You don't see many veterans from older generations blowing their own trumpets every time they encounter an obstacle in life. Fact is, no matter what you have done up to the point where you start to kick off in a club, when you cross that line, all that honour you think you deserve, goes out the window, and you become just another yobo who talks with their fists and lands up in jail .. or in this case, banned. My advice to you is put the medals and uniforms away and just be yourself, act like an adult and maybe have some fun.
  11. Perrie I have friends who have been admining on the sim in question for many years... let me be clear here I have one friend, a lady who runs one of the biggest adult content continents in SL .. the lady in question pays millions of L$ a month on tier. She certainly has the Linden's ear, from what I can see.. and I believe her when she tells me why these bots are allowed on the other sim .. Sim X uses bots.. the owner of sim Y told me why and how and where.
  12. You have it exactly, Thats how they do it .. the 6 bots in question are on the target sim
  13. Perrie, quite simply because I am privy to certain things from friends in the admin group and they have 3 different kind of bots on that sim .. The first kind, of which there are two, are declared bots, both walk around and take new people to a welcome centre. The second kind are undeclared and there are 6, one for each welcome island.. They send TPs to new residents .. i.e. when a new person initially lands they get a message saying ***** wants to Teleport you to ****** sim. The third type are up in the air, keeping the traffic up. These are all demonstratable if you wish me to show you.
  14. Bit off subject, but they are not always banned. I have seen evidence that one of the most popular info hubs in SL, that is also in the destination guide, uses undeclared bots to lure new people, 0 day old avatars, from the welcome islands to their sim. This has been reported numerous times by various people who have some standing with LL, however nothing is done, nore do I expect anything will ever be done about it.

  16. Its all very clearly explaned in this thread, and on this website https://sites.google.com/site/hudmamaallpa/Home/faq-1

  18. Endings lead to new beginnings *laughs . and people call this a game.. dont give up
  19. Altberg? hmm a rose by any other name? Somehow his name strikes me as being entirely appropriate to LL, SL and this very forum :smileywink:
  20. If you look at my first post I used the phrase "in my opinion" several times, to show that, while my views may not be popular, they are MY opinion and not LL nor anyone else's .. Am I prejudiced against child RPer's? .. Yes and emphatically, here is why .. I see the practice as highly questionable, unlike most other forms of RP, if you go to an info hub in a child AV you face ridicule and scorn at best .. Go there as a furry, elephant, robot, motorcar, slave, warrior, elf just about any AV you can think of and little will be said ... But cross that line .. Have a child AV, and people instantly get defensive and/or hostile. as for the why, I think it is in part related to the way the media deals with children, and ourselves ... Pretty much nothing is as sacred as a child in the eyes of 99.9999% of people. As I said in my opening statement I do not see how child AVs can ever be used without THE QUESTION arising and so I deal with it simply .. I refuse to acknowledge or interact with child AVs .. if that offends you well then block me and be done .. I am not changing. Aye Syo we know each other, and if you recall I have had this argument before on this forum, I value our friendship and I must tell you that I agree with you most of the time, but on this issue I will not budge.. SOME people abuse SL by using it as a platform for kiddy porn .. do I have proof? no .. but I do not need to see the residue of that, however innocent it may seem.

That's not even remotely what you actually said. Maybe you didn't read what it was you were posting. You also did not say "rp is fine", not even remotely. I really hope the next time a discussion about rp in general comes up, you don't go off all half cocked at people who find YOUR brand of rp as deserving of a weekend visit in the psych ward. Or that your particular brand of rp makes you sick, twisted, in need of help, lacking something in rl...or any number of nasty things I have seen people spout off about others' choices of rp. It's fine and dandy to not like something, not want to be near it, and choose to avoid it, etc.. I get that. There's lots in sl I'd never participate in. However, my decision, for myself, has no bearing on the decisions others make for their selves. I don't get to decide who is in need of a doc for their "troubles" just because I don't share them. I think that's a very sad way to look at, or think about, individuals, based entirely on the fact that I don't share their rp desires. I'm not into gor, or the slave/sub areas of sl...but lots of folks are. That's awesome for them. Just because it's not ideal for me, doesn't mean they all need a shrink, or better batteries The concepts are the same, regardless of which area of rp it is you're against, you really shouldn't be so very judgmental when plenty have seen what happens when folks have judged your own brand of rp. amazing how quickly this turned into a slinging match ..I made my point, moving on Leia, you certainly made a point with me, but I wonder if it's the point you had in mind. *laughs .. this is nothing new I have a thread locked over this issue already .. I simply do not countenance child RP .. I will and do deal with many types of RP .. When it comes to kids I will not be quiet .. If that makes me bad then so be it

  24. In my opinion there is no fine line .. You either are or aren't. Ageplay has absolutely no place in SL in my opinion. Every time I have come across it, which, thankfully, hasn't been often, it has resulted in truck loads of drama and accusations. There is nothing sweet or innocent about a grown adult impersonating an 8 year old for any reason. Had a hard childhood? Well there is nothing to be gained, that I can see, from attempting to relive it inworld. You cannot unlearn what you have learned, you cannot unexperience what has happened to you, and any talk of "closure" is a poor attempt at justification. Let me ask you this, what, if any, therapeutic value does having the majority of SL thinking you are weird and degenerative have? Absolutely null... Had a hard childhood? Go see a shrink. The above may come across as harsh, but this is one subject that I don't pull the punches with.
  25. What everyone has said before me is just about right ... We debated this last week and the sim owner was quite adamant that LGBT goreans are welcome at our BTB sim .. As you stated in the OP gay is BTB, there are quotes to support it. So come have a look at Verr Fjord, we are BTB and in the top 10 traffic wise. Drop me a NC as my IMs get capped.
