Simply log off if you can't keep an eye on your avi. Reported for insensitivity to those SL participants who are actually unable to speak. I suggest you choose your words more carefully. There are plenty of synonyms for stupid which are not gratuitously offensive, like idiotic, moronic, unintelligent, ignorant, dense, foolish, slow, simpleminded, vacuous, vapid, imbecilic, obtuse, doltish, thick, dim, half-witted, daft, dozy, cretinous, all of which you might wish to use to describe the OP's "friend" without insulting the vocally impaired. Wow. That's a whole lot of stuff there. While we're on the subject of foreknowledge or preconsideration of the background of other forum members, perhaps a look at the definition of the word "dumb" right underneath the version you've chosen to highlight is in order. Particular attention shoud be paid to the region in which this definition is a longstanding commonality. Considering the number of words used in other regions which have completely different meanings and intensities in America that are almost never accounted for, I would hope that this tendency to demand such nitpicking lest ye be tattled on is an exception rather than a rule. 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 doubt I have to spell it out, but when the average English guy gets checked on that faux pas the reaction that I've gotten many times was for that very same word to be directed AT ME in the very American definition of itself. And, as alluded to earlier, I am in those instances indeed hopping mad. dumb dəm/ adjective adjective: dumb; comparative adjective: dumber; superlative adjective: dumbest 1. offensive (of a person) unable to speak, most typically because of congenital deafness. "he was born deaf, dumb, and blind" synonyms: mute, speechless, tongue-tied, silent, at a loss for words; More taciturn, uncommunicative, untalkative, tight-lipped, close-mouthed; informalmum "she stood dumb while he shouted" (of animals) unable to speak as a natural state and thus regarded as helpless or deserving pity. temporarily unable or unwilling to speak. "she stood dumb while he poured out a stream of abuse" synonyms: mute, speechless, tongue-tied, silent, at a loss for words; More taciturn, uncommunicative, untalkative, tight-lipped, close-mouthed; informalmum "she stood dumb while he shouted" resulting in or expressed by speechlessness. "they stared in dumb amazement" synonyms: mute, speechless, tongue-tied, silent, at a loss for words; More taciturn, uncommunicative, untalkative, tight-lipped, close-mouthed; informalmum "she stood dumb while he shouted" 2. North American informal stupid. "a dumb question" synonyms: stupid, unintelligent, ignorant, dense, brainless, mindless, foolish, slow, dull, simple, empty-headed, stunned, vacuous, vapid, idiotic, half-baked, imbecilic, bovine; More And what makes you think that the 50% of forum participants who are not North American would not be insulted by the use of an inappropriate and minority-abusive pejorative? You might also want to ask the wonderful Treasure and her friends here in SL what the North American element of VirtualAbility think of such language.

I've been here all the time. You're the one turning up at my place, knocking on my door. Got drunk and felt a bit brave did you? Must have been a shock to realise that your disgusting past still follows you round, and then you go and confirm that you haven't changed, wishing painful death on others. Teri ((I'm not going to report you for that; I shall allow others to make you feel unwelcome - except the panderers you recruit, of course.))

  23. I have seen lost of examples of it here, and even more in Answers, and I think it would be a really useful skill to have in SL. Can someone tell me where to find tutorials on how to do it in the forums, or a Yourtube video would be really good, preferably taught by a hot girl in a bikini. Teri ((Don't accuse me of being lazy. I looked in the SL wiki and there was lots on cutting but nothing on pasting.)) (((I really want to be able to cut and paste a working secuirty camera. On a sculpty.)))
