  1. Suddenly, my body has been going invisible. This has never been a problem before, but all of a sudden now it is, and the only way I know to solve it is to relog. I understand that some viewers, like Firestorm, have, under Avatar Health, an option to refresh the avatar. But I use the Linden viewer. Is there anything short of relogging I can do to restore the visibility of the avatar?
  2. Has anyone had a problem with their Basically Girl AO HUD lately? Usually, clicking the ON/OFF symbol toggles the AO on and off, predictably. But lately, clicking the ON/OFF symbol has been making weird menus pop up asking me to select different types of walk, swim or sit animations. That's never happened before. I tried rebooting and just detaching and reattaching the original, but neither worked. Finally, I had to delete my Basically Girl AO and buy a new one. That solved the problem...UNTIL... I reattached my Spirit HUD from the Amazon River sim. I can't be 100% sure about causation here, but there definitely seems to be a correlation between my attaching the Spirit HUD and my Basically Girl AO going fubar.
  3. SL player "Ned Twig" is running a Cthulhu tabletop roleplaying game for 3 to 4 players (I'm one!) and is looking for the rest. We'll be using SL as a means of communication, but using Chaosium's tabletop RPG rules and the Wizards of the Coast dice roller (https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm) for dice rolls. It'll be set in the Victorian gaslight era. Contact Ned Twig or me if you're interested. Slots are limited, so, I guess, first-come-first-serve...unless you can't fit into the gaming schedule...then we'll have to replace you with an alternate who does. Gaming schedule to be determined.
  4. Thank you, Innula. That is very helpful. I appreciate your kind contribution in answering my original question.
  5. That assumes that the sex offender in question knew of this obscure term of service that Adamburp quoted. None of the rest of us did. Also, sex offenders don't tend to think things through long-term, and most people do not know the terms of service to the letter. Only the person who had contact with the sex offender knows the totality of the circumstance, and the ToS preclude the totality of the circumstances from being divulged here...but I suspect you'd be considerably less leery if you had experienced the totality of the circumstances. McCallum, not only have I read the OP, I wrote the OP, so I know what it said, I know what the responses have been -- civil and otherwise -- and I am well aware of what the advice was. And I am well aware of what I did in response to that advice. Klytyna, I'm glad that you agree with me that a court of law found a sex offender guilty of sex offenses. Beyond that, you don't know the totality of the circumstances of the SL interaction in question because the terms of service preclude me from elaborating. You can't maintain that the person in question is not the sex offender in question because you have no information (thanks to the terms of service). The information I have is considerably more than the nearly-zero amount of information that you have about this person.
  6. Indeed. I am relieved to see that Linden Labs will not tolerate convicted sex offenders having accounts on SL, assuming, as you point out, that what was quoted is actually a term of service. If it is, though, it makes sense...Orwar said in an earlier post that Linden Labs is beholden to the laws of California, so it stands to reason that they would take such precautions so as not to be sued civilly, or even prosecuted criminally for some kind of criminal omission.
  7. There is nothing "silly" about wanting to protect the members of my community -- be it a physical, geographical community, or an online community -- from the predations of a real-life, twice-convicted sex offender.
  8. Okay...no problem, then. Thank you for acknowledging that, Love. I appreciate it. And thank you, Adamburp, for your post clarifying the ToS.
  9. Yes, agreed, Ceka. Sound advice that is, about going silent on them. And it is exactly what I have done. I'm glad to see others share my point of view on this matter.
  10. There's a reason people detest sex offenders...because sex offenses are detestable. Also, protests at their homes and such harassment is a fringe activity, not something that's widely done. The majority of people avoid sex offenders. That's the whole purpose of Megan's Laws, and why they are used in every state in the U.S. and at the Federal level. Because Megan's Laws work in protecting people from sexual predators. And, yes, Love, I agree that a person goading me into getting him or her into more trouble is unlikely. Again, let's not manufacture false facts that I think the opposite. Please don't twist my words to make it look like I disagree with you on an obvious point. We are in agreement, here.
  11. There's no need for a mound of salt. Only one who has experienced the encounter with this sex offender knows the whole story. The terms of service preclude divulging too much on these forums.
  12. Why would someone that is not a sex offender, try to goad me into reporting him, to get him into trouble? Why would someone who is a sex offender, try to goad me into reporting him to get him into more trouble? Ohhh...I see what you are saying...wait...you're saying someone who is not a sex offender wants to stir up trouble for someone who is a sex offender. Well, that's up to a fact-finder to determine...whether it's Linden Labs investigating a Terms of Service violation, or a court of law investigation a course of illegal conduct.
  13. Ah...I understand. Thank you for that clarification, Love. What is impossible for others to glean from the cold record -- and a diminished record at that, thanks to community guidelines that prohibit me from divulging too much information -- was the sex offender's tone, persistence and pushiness. That belies the possibility that he was trying to be up-front. It suggests, instead, that he was up to his old recidivist tricks. The second speculation, that a person who was not a sex offender went onto a sex offender database, collected information about a sex offender, found that sex offender's facebook page, and collected additional photos about that sex offender, and assumed that sex offender's identity just to ...create drama for me personally?...seems a stretch. Also, it puts that person at unnecessary risk of being focused on by law enforcement. Moreover, again, his persistence and tone belie that possibility. The totality of the circumstances, which I would love to elaborate on, but which the community guidelines seem to preclude me from divulging, suggest that this real-life, twice-convicted, sex offender was up to his old, recidivist tricks, this time using SL as a vehicle to develop a rapport with potential victims.
  14. Thank you, LittleMe Jewell, for answering my original question in a civil way. I appreciate your response.
  15. Why would you ask ME what his motive is? You would have to ask the offender. If you're asking me to speculate as to his motive, it seems to me that he was trying to get me to reciprocate and divulge my own information and photo to him so he could develop a relationship with me. That's how sex offenders prey on victims.
