"is there going to be anything left?" I might wish things were different than they are but if this is what I have to deal with, it is better to do so with the CEO listening and talking than with the stoney silence we have gotten from LL in the past. He is being forthcoming with whatever information he has at present, and is listening to and inquiring about our concerns. That will go a long way to calm the waters. The thou

  5. Parrish Ashbourne wrote: Your the one shooting your self in the foot, it's all ready been said about 1000 times that LL is not closing SL. Ebbe said he would close SL as soon as it became unprofitable to keep it going. Which sounds like a death sentence to me. Parrish Ashbourne wrote: Spreading lies and fear is what will hurt SL.

You have to believe that, don't you? Or at least to say so, because you wa

Probably because he hid his responses - I note you avoid terming them "answers" - in an extremely badly formatted post. Perhaps you should offer him some tuition in Forums101. "ain't it hard"

They disallowed it seven or eight years ago, and people don't normally talk about making plans to do something they've already done. But Ebbe has comitted here in these forums very recently that Sanitised Life will allow user freedoms as long as they are legal. And depiction of sexual age-play is not illegal in California, with whose laws LL has to comply. Is he lying, inconsistent, or incompetent?
  9. WRONG: "Oh by the way, cheerleader #23, we've unilaterally decided to dump the current version and build a much better product, although we don't actually have much of an idea what the new software will look like, how we're going to build it - except we'll use Microsoft development tools of course - how we're going to migrate existing stuff to it - or if we're going to bother - and how we're going to sell access to it. We'll talk about it in third party forums then come to the official ones, but still won't have much to tell you, because we won't know what we're doing ourselves. And pleas

We just brought our same old humanity (developed over 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of years) into SL with us and never changed at all I like Gwyneth. She is a humanity changer as well. Not all the time but she thinks and writes a lot about the greater things. She writes really interesting stuff from that perspective. And I quite like that she can express those thoughts and ideas very well. So I think about them also if I have to choose between changing humanity or

Ha! Ask the US state administrations that sits on thousands and thousands of Word documents they no longer can open how they feel about backwards compatibility of business applications. I have a few of those too. Or how Microsoft's mp3 player partners felt when they were suddenly dumped because Microsoft figured they wanted to roll their own Zune. We

It will be much more productive than what you are currently doing. Go ahead, tell us about you. Tell us about your childhood. Maybe we can help you. Why hide? Let it all out. We won't judge you. Why are you being so critical of Ebbe, Medhue? He's just doing his job. Well, actually, it's Peter Gray's job. As you have pointed out, Ebbe should be getting on with the CEO's tasks, which primarily consist of co-ordinating the management resources available to him

"high or low, it's all the same" Can't say I am all that happy with Ebbe's new vision and all; but are these constant ad hominems at him really necessary? At least the man shows up here, willing to answer question -- not many CEO's would. He'd be better off spending his time working on a business feasibility plan than publicly demonstrating his lack of preparedness here. "an empty fable"

Working on some products have much higher cost and lower return on investment than others. I appreciate a reply from the man himself, but I honestly don't know what you mean, here. I was pretty much just saying that being able to import half-a-home is, effectively, the same as not being able to import it at all. And thus, realistically, that I can forget about ever being able to
