    It's silly to put off buying things because SL2 (or the Afterlife) is coming. First of all, it's not coming for at least a year. Then, when it does come it will not replace SL, but exist as a new alternative to SL.If you don't want to use it, you can stay right here. Lots of people will, especially those who have many years and a lot of L$ invested in this world. 

    Of course there will still be some recalcitrants in SL.

    Where in my post did I say it was being worn?

    The German law involves certain specific
    symbols
    - the swastika being one, with the others most familiar from World War II being the runic lightning-bolt
    SS
    and the
    totenkopf
    death's head emblem of the
    Schutzstaffel
    ("SS"). The basic uniforms themselves aren't part of the law. Interestingly enough, some of the banned symbols appear to be neo-Nazi associated and aren't familiar to most people outside of Germany. In fact, one of them is a fairly commonly used decoration in SL.

    In SL,
    Luftwaffe
    planes and
    Wehrmacht
    uniforms are common; however, the planes don't have the swastika on the vertical stabilizer, which was the one place the Luftwaffe planes had swastikas.

    So, basically, you are agreeing I am right.

  3. Why are you allowing these things to bother you? This is not the real world. Feelings are irrelevant. Everybody is lying here, as soon as they choose a  name that isn't theirs and an avatar that is fantasy character, even (or more especially) those who claim not to be; they are generally lying to themselves primarily!

    Don't trust anyone, and if you don't feel comfortable, exit. That doesn't mean that you have to quit SL, or even logoff, just make sure you have a default tp spot you can make your escape to. Mute those who annoy you, ignore those who pester you, and leave groups as soon as you have got the joining benefits and before you get overwhelmed by spam.

    Don't buy anything. It will all be useless when SL V2 comes along, and the bs that people give you about needing a cool avatar and an extensive wardrobe is just because they want to sell you something, or feel insecure about their own self-image.

    Make lots of alts, each with their own email address. That helps you hide, double deal and hurt less when you have to abandon an identity because the heat's on.

    I had nearly forgotten how uncensored the old forums were.  Quite unlike the very sanitized version we have now.

    Unfortunate, really.  I always enjoyed a good tussle and/or flight of fancy.

    Hey girls, I'm trying!

    Teri

    ((Very trying.))

    i don't know you nor the one you blame to be the bad one, but be carefull you could become the one getting some AR filed on your name if you proceed this way.

    Keep things from the past for yourself, you seem to have made a new start, let others do the same, live and let live, don't cross paths.

    Thanks for your advice, Alwin.

    I can think of a word used in Britain to describe a "jerk" which is typically, again in Britain, used by a man talking to another man which if used in America in the presence of a woman will have her and many around hopping mad.

    I can think of lots of innocuous words which get the notoriously hypersensitive majority of rose-tint-bespectacled women (American or otherwise) hopping mad on a semi-continuous basis.
