  1. Aretha Franklin’s Music will be moving hearts as long as civilization exists, so she will always be with us ?
  2. The fun thing about this for me personally is how much if this I MISSED due to being in a Roleplay sim as an Admin. That essentially ate the rest of my SL and if it wasn’t directly affecting the sim - I had a good chance of missing the drama completely.. Because.....we had enough drama IN the sim .....
  3. That would depend on how many alts the Stalker was using, how much time they had to devote to Stalking activities, how much trouble they caused for SL friends of yours and their persistence in creating new stalker alts to keep their activity up despite the old ones being blocked. SL seems to be hamstrung by its desire to be an Open Community, to the point that enforcement is generally ineffective where a determined psycho is involved.
  4. It pays to consider that not all of us who post and experience SL on an avatar that is not our original are not Hiding Behind an Alt for nefarious reasons. :-) My original picked up and out-of-the-blue Stalker and made my SL absolute hell. LL was appealed to in multiple occasions for help, but was unable to provide any useful remediation. So, my 2005 Avatar is essentially mothballed and my options were “make an alt” or leave SL. Maybe a better objective would be for LL to develop -effective- anti-griefer/stalker tools, which could also serve to deal with weaponized alts.
  5. Given the frequency that humans think about sex, the lengths and expense they go through to pursue looking good for potential sexual partners (I’m thinking Torture Heels, salon visits and Impractical Underwear) - why is it surprising that SL reflects something that is embedded so deeply in the human condition?
  6. Of itself SL requires communications to function; -Data communications with the Mothership to perform any and all activity affecting the world. -Communications with LL staff to resolve issues All SL uses are reliant upon electronic and other communication, even just sitting in a sandbox building. SL remains a communications platform :-)
  7. How about this; ”SL is a *communications platform* with supplemental graphic rendering that can also be used as a gaming, education or artistic tool?”
  8. Second Life is not a game; Real Life is an unmoderated game designed by a madman.
  9. Well - the post that follows should be a forum-sensitivity-safe response; /me logs off the forum and goes back to reading a book for a while.
  10. I’m starting to feel like posting to the forums is a dangerous thing for us older folks.
  11. Maybe we should send an SL spacecraft to go measure the distance to the SL sun. We could build a nice Mesh spaceship, I could select three avatars (who I don’t care for) as the crew and launch them to glory as “first to land on the sun”
  12. I think you lost a bit of interest when you said “game”. Also, what kind of MASH avatar were you looking for? Radar, Trapper John, Hawkeye or Hotlips? I’m guessing Hotlips....
  13. As a compromise, can I just leave the thread? Leaving the entire forum seems a little extreme to me....
  14. Phil, the post I quoted “die hard trumpettes” and my full question would have been “are there any such (die-hard trumpettes) in SL?” That would include anyone enthusiastically speaking up for the current US President without considering national affiliation. I’m really not interested in discussing the politics of the temporary occupant of the White House, but I am always very interested in the freedom of dissenters (regardless of stance) to be able to speak up.
  15. I’m curious - ARE there any such in SL? 99.9% of what I hear in SL leans in support of the American Left.
  16. I avoid political discussion in SL mainly because; (a) people have short memories and things that happened more than 5 years ago often are unlearned-from or ignored if they don’t fit someone’s narrative. (b) many people operate based on how they feel rather than on reason - so reason is irrelevant with that lot. (c) Generally, many people have never learned how to debate - so even with good intentions online “debate” quickly devolves into a shouting match. RL -discussion- is very important and should qualify as a Civic Duty - but I try to keep my online friendships free if that stuff. We all get along better that way in a Digital Mccarthyist age where having the wrong Opinion can see you socially blackballed.
  17. I’ll try to condense it down to something that won’t get me banned from the forums :-)
  18. Have you been peeking at my list of somewhat humiliating tasks for prospective sugar babies?
  19. I’m not trying to derail...just “participating differently”.... I’d be an amazing Sugar Mama :-) My standards are a little strange though,
  20. Y’know - after thinking about it; *I* might make a pretty good Sugar Mama! I have a really interesting list of semi-humiliating stuff I could pay the right person to do, and if the video goes viral it might open up a whole new career for that lucky person.... This could be fun (for me)!
  21. Because very often a sugar-daddy turns out to be a dud...
  22. Marty, if you’re thinking about starting to PLAY in roleplay sims - you might get better input if we knew what kind of roleplay sims you were looking for.... Family Roleplay Sims Sl has seen a lot of these pop up and they focus on “domestic life” and interaction with other “families” living there. Some also offer over-arching themes. Think “soap opera” or Suburbia First Responder Sims Generally modern-day sims that focus on Player Characters working as Firefighters, Police, EMS or doctors. Think of any fire/police/medial TV show Scifi This runs the gauntlet from Blade-Runner to Star Wars or Altered Carbon Supernatural Think anything from X-Files to Harry Potter Modern Urban Decay Some of the biggest and longest-lived RP sims in Sl these focus on the seedy underside of urban life and PCs can be anything including gang members, mafia, cops, hookers, students or Innocent Victims Apocalyptic Sometimes a mix of Horror and Scifi. Think Walking Dead or 28 Days Later and the genre list goes on and on.....
  23. On my Roleplay Alt I have led factions and have helped to manage entire sims. Generally I contributed my own $ to help keep the sim afloat and was never paid for my services. Why? Love of the game. Literate, freeform roleplay (I’m not talking sexplay or click-shoot sims) is a consensual story written by the group. In my mind, at the top-end thats a form of performance-art and its not unusual to sacrifice for art. Being a Faction or Sim leader is stressful, it cuts into your RP time and eventually gave me a case of burnout (due to the nature of how some players approach RP)- but I would never consider asking to be paid for my services. I made a contribution to keep something I loved afloat for a while, and that was compensation enough...
