  1. I was ripped off by this seller too and they gave me the run around and blammed the SL marketplace. When a Linden Labs rep had confirmed that no item was ever sent or delievered and that the fault was at the responsibility of the seller who tried to pin the blame on SL. The truth is this seller is offering items they don't actually have and no one is receiving the items their purchasing. This has been going on for quite sometime because of the way peopel that run scams using Secondlife and Secondlifes Terms of Service makes it easy for them to get away with when you can't even mention the name or place that's running the scam. From the volume of complaints I've seen I beleive they have stolen thousands of dollars in real world money through thier fraudulent business. I'm sure at one time they were legit but that reputation ended the moment they started knowledgably ripping people off and given them nothing in return and not even so much as a refund when they were aware that no such product had ever been sent or delivered. Can you call them crooks when endless people have been complaining about them? Of course you can. As of now their SL Marketplace store is defunct and I say good riddance. I can only hope they're actually facing real legal trouble for all the money they've stolen from people using Secondlife as a scam.
  2. "Our relationship is SL only, it will never go to RL and he knows that." ...how selfish is that. You're a married woman with a family but you want to break away from that to have a love affair with a single man on the internet and you blame him for wanting your full attention. You're cheating on your marriage and trying to use the fact that it's over the internet as a buffer for it. If you feel that way about this guy why are you spending time with him and not your husband? You can't be a part time wife and a part time lover to someone else. You need to pick a side and stick with it. No single man wants a part time "girlfriend." Keyword being "girlfriend" because if you're not that than it's just emotional and sexual benefits that the two of you are getting out of it and you're only diluting the emotional and sexual relationship you should be focusing on having with your spouse. Is your husband okay with you being with another man on the internet for almost 4 years and spending time away from him and the kids? I'd like to know what he feels about it since this is a 3 way relationship between all of you and he also has to share you his wife with someone else. You're pretty much getting your cake and eating it too but you seem to skip around that like he's the problem. This is what happens when you're playing 2 relationships while the other person is single. It seems like this man is in love with you but you'll never be in love with him so you need to tell him that and let him go on with his life and stop playing with his emotions so that he can get over you and date women who are single like him that will devote their time to a full on relationship without having to split it between someone that is already in a legally binding relationship as well as the kids they have between the two of them. There's the truth. You need to pick your husband or your internet lover and move on. He wants you as a single woman for himself. Why would you expect your lover to care about the time you need for your husband and your kids that aren't his? He's not in a relationship to be with them, he's in your relationship to be with you. Your probelm is that you expect him to care as much as you do about "YOUR" husband and "YOUR" kids. Why should he? This is what happens when you play with someone's heart. You started the fire of passion... now you need to put it out. You also really need to stop lying to yourself and treating this guy like he's some sort of pest or nuisance to you like you didn't go running to him every time your husband ticked you off or when you felt you needed an escape from your kids and your family. You took up his time with that and you didn't care because he's what "Single and doesn't date". To a married woman like you that just translates too "a man I can take emotional advantage of and not have to worry about him leaving me and splitting time between someone else like I am doing with my husband". You know the deal lady stop pretending.
  3. thanks for the recommendations, although it's a bit entertaining that Firestorm weeds out an operating system SL is perfectly built to run on... as old as it is.
  4. My computer runs windows XP and since I never had any problems with it I never saw a reason to upgrade it. Firestorm just blocked their 4.7.1 so I guess I can no longer use firestorm. Does anyone know of a viewer that supports XP still?
  5. "without telling your SL partner" Cheating in a replationship is the act of being with someone else without your partners knowledge or consent. So whoever isn't aware is who and on whom.
  6. Does anyone know of any good WW2 combat sims?
  7. Is there any type of Blacklist or Rip off Report for SL merchants where people can post their experience or rate a merchant or talk about problems they've had? Buying items on SL is hit and miss and unless it's a "credible" merchant (and even some of the "credible" merchants arent' so credible) you're still taking a gamble. I always wondered if anyone had created a website or something were you can view merchant ratings or give feedback on your shopping experiences since LL's doesn't help much with anything. I came across an issue with a merchant got scammed, realized they were having LL's removing negative reviews and feedback other customers left as well, and there's really no way to protect other customers. I thought something like that would be helpful if there was one for players. I also wouldn't count the Market place ratings or comments since negative reviews or comments can get removed and you have to purchase an item on there and inworld purchases or issues or discluded.
  8. If you're having a probelm with a seller or mp purchase Linden Labs won't help. You can't really report a seller and if you did nothing will ever happen to them. The only time Lindne Labs gets involved is when they get hit with a lawsuit.
  9. I have to be honest, I really think it's mainly in your head. There's a lot of strange stuff in SL and being a black avatar is the least of it. When you say "It's honestly made me very ashamed of my race" I think that's more of a personal problem that you have with yourself so you jump to an avatar image that you feel is more socially acceptable. On another note, the only group I've ever really noticed a certain disdain towards in SL was "Furries".
  10. I know that feeling I was recently scammed as well by a seller on the market place. Even with evidence of other customers being scammed as well LL's makes the point they aren't interested. Scammers know this so that's why it's so fequent. In my opinion LL's is just as bad as the people scamming you because even though they may be well aware of a scheme they don't lift a finger to stop it. When you think about it, they make money off your being scammed. It's pretty sad and makes you not want to bother with spending money on the MP, which hurts other sellers that are legitimate. I just know I won't be making purchases off the MP like I used too if at all because scamming is legal in Second Life.

As to date the only people I've come across that want to say SL is not a game are the kind of people that suppliment Second Life for their own reality so therefore they try to make a game seem more than what it is. I see this also as part of why people that get involved in "relationships" in this game end up getting hurt so much. They forget that this is all roleplay in this world and they try to cross the world over with reality and you just can't do that. So far I've notice that people I know that spend 24/7 in SL think of it as more than a game and refuse to acknowledge it as that while people that I've met that log in ever so often just think of SL as a game.

This is usually what happens when you don't read things fully. Usually resulting in ones embarassment. ...Van To help your inability to fully comprehend what you're reading allow me to assist you better my comprehionsly challeneged friend... I recall this thread being about someone asking why do people get offended calling SL a game. I believe this large portion of my comment that I've highlighted for you in bold letters should cover that topic quite well for you. Consider this a humble gift. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

  12. " I like to reserve RL facts for those I have known for a long time, and trust. " Seems like you just did respond. Use that.
