    Somebody loves me...

    Nooooo, that's like the school sports days where "everyone is a winner". Just no. Life is competitive, deal with it. For me, just spamming cards would dilute the sentiment because nobody is special by the sheer virtue of everyone being the same.

    Nope, I would send a card to someone of interest or maybe they would send me one but as I'm not a love interest of everyone that I meet on Valentine's Day, saying it to me just comes across as a pointless, disingenuous comment with zero substance. Might as well wish me happy grumpy day, at least I'll smile back at them instead of giving them a perplexed look as I wonder why they've bothered to say Happy Valentine's Day for no applicable reason! Besides, it's not a day that I celebrate.

    It seems to me that the sentiment of Valentine's Day has become entirely lost. It's not a public holiday, everyone is not your Valentine, thus wishing everyone a "Happy Valentine's Day" is inappropriate somewhat! Just thought I'd drop that on a thread.
  4. Nailed it. Yes, it's a one way data pipe for cross domain security solutions.
  5. That's a great suggestion actually and gives the added benefit of auto enrolling you into at least two off-site cloud backup programmes with data centres in the USA and the UK. Getting your content back can be a bit of a problem though as the data centres are fed via data diodes.

    Updating personal info on account.

    Except that LL would first need sufficient identification before releasing the information that the poster needs in order to identify themselves.
  7. I know what you mean by it, I'm curious as to why the apparent exclusion? Aren't we all just "people"? I prefer not to colour code people.
  8. Isn't white a colour?

    What do people think of your voice (if you do)?

    Ah but that's only half the issue, you also have to be age <insert acceptable fantasy age range> and <insert fantasy body type> with [ ] flowing [ ] short <fantasy colour> hair. The fact that I probably fail on all of these is irrelevant to how amazingly HOT you'll find me. *smiles charmingly*

    Second Life should have a way to return unwanted items

    None of this is an SL issue. This is entirely an arrangement between the buyer and seller, just as it is in RL. If you are in a physical shop in RL, there is no right to return goods, unless they are subsequently found to be faulty. You are deemed to have had the opportunity to inspect the goods before finalising the contact. I.e. payment. Many shops however, will offer their own policy with regard to returns and this already exists in SL. The is absolutely no reason whatsoever why a merchant cannot choose to offer a return or refund on any transaction, copy/transfer/full perm or whatever and some do! Now having said this, the UK does have the Distance Selling Act (although my memory fails me, I've a feeling it has been superceded in name) but this applies to products bought online or via phone, any method where the purchaser did not have the opportunity to inspect prior to purchase. This act grants legal right to the purchaser to return UNUSED products within 14 days but does not refund postage. The key part is unused, you don't get to try it out and determine suitability, that's still at the discretion of the vendor. This is as close as you'll get to a similar purchase within SL but the point remains, nothing needs to change, just contact the seller, all what they're able or willing to do. Fundamentally, it's not an SL problem, it's a people solution.
  11. Probably more like the fact that fax only requires the use of a crayon and the subsequent document given to a government aide. Use of such fangled technology as a keyboard is far beyond the capability of many politicians! Oh then there's the current crop of "must ban encryption for the sake of the children (and terrorism)" which would render signing being a tad broken. Now I get it, those pesky politicians were actually advanced in their thinking.
  12. Disappointing but it depends on what verification of your identity would be required for Docusign for the certificate used. For example, in the EU, e signing requires eIDAS compliance for certain compliance. https://www.docusign.com/how-it-works/electronic-signature/digital-signature (there's a download link about eIDAS and their service) I'm not sure what you'd need for other parts of the world but for a technology organisation to refuse a fully qualified certificate to such a standard in favour of a fully defeatable method such as fax is a joke!
  13. Should not apply to qualified digital signatures. That's why they're qualified, it's the whole point and if governments both issue and accept them, there's no reason why LL shouldn't. To OP, are you sure we're taking about suitably issued certificates to a suitable Identity verification standard? Fax is so subject to tampering, it's laughable to even consider it as suitable for legal purposes. All fax transmission asserts today is that you've used an incredibly out of date protocol, absolutely nothing more. The legal process has also caught up and generally accepts emails now.
  14. I seem to recall some years ago that LL accepted DMCA via email where your email is signed, using the private key associated with a suitable certificate issued by a qualified trust service provider. Maybe check up on that and ask for the exact requirements that would satisfy their needs?

    Worst Shopping Experience EVER

    The moment that this becomes a debate over right and wrong methods is the moment that the point is lost. It is without any doubt whatsoever that in order to obtain money from someone, you make it as easy as possible for them to do so. Their methods may be different to your own but to them, any barrier is just that. The sensible response would be a simple "thank you for your feedback". No merchant is obliged to change their their method but to argue that it's a better method is fruitless. If the business of a potential customer is not valued, that's fine, that is also a choice but in no way invalidates the customers personal preferences either.
