yup, they should consider that people all around the world connects to their servers, and the laws are different everywhere lol, and even if that's the case, having my VISA and my full name should be more than enough, but seriously, Tilia asked for my ID, my address, a copy of a bill to show up that i truly live here? this is getting like an old fashion witch hunt, where their point is to hunt down bots or fake users using who knows what, fake cards or something? i was once literally banned because someone gave me Lindens that where bought from an "illegal" source, how is that even possible now? all i want it’s an easy, fast and safe way to spend my money in this virtual world, we had a great option for several years, and now everything is suddenly delayed, slowed down, and argh, it’s been months and i still can't get thru this situation that shouldn't even happen nor exist in the first place because 9+ years of service should be more than enough to prove that I’m real, and not a bot or whatever they are trying to filter out with these unnecessary measures. And I’m pretty sure that its not just few, but many former SL residents that are disappointed with all these measures and are experiencing problems with it, I currently know a lot of users that are unable to buy Lidens, and many others that simply don’t login anymore because of this lack of flexibility and ease of acquisition when it comes to buy the virtual currency its being used here.
lol, whatever?... i don't speak english natively, so yeah excuse my “engrish”. But yeah: your home address, your full ID, a photo of yourself, your cellphone number, are the kind of sensitive information that no one, but only the police probably should have in their hands. Also, i see no reason on why wouldn't they "make money off our personal information", every single business and social network do that in the US. it is like the irony of people feeling afraid of being spied by another government in a foreign app today (cof cof tik tok), when they have always been spied on by the NSA in the US “network soil”. Network packets are just that, packets, information, 0s and 1s that can be seen by anyone with the ability to packet sniff and the ISPs controlling the traffic anyway. The battle for the freedom of information and personal privacy was lost many years ago. Now if they are monetizing our information (which is honestly, normal in days like these), let us please have a guaranteed QoS in terms of functionality? ….
