  1. Although possible, it's extremely unlikely they would try to tackle that business angle. The issue goes far beyond PayPal. A large part of it has to do with the credit card companies and their policies. Often times they will refuse to service transactions with your business if it's of adult nature or provides services for adult industries. Some of this has to do with the credit risk involved.. The adult industry has the largest amount of disputed charges than any other industry. Thus the credit card companies are often left carrying the loss. Then you get into the pressure they rec
  2. Not gonna tackle the current conversations.. But if anyone wants an amazing free resource to listen in on experiences of POC in the USA, I highly recommend the podcast Code Switch.
  3. Wanted to get some clarification on what does and does not constitute Keyword Spam, primarily in regards to Gacha's. The understanding I have from this is that terms unrelated to the exact item listed should not be used. For example, if you were selling a pair of shoes that came from a gacha set that also included a hat and dress: Valid: designer name, gacha set name, shoe, shoes, Invalid: designer name, gacha set name, shoe, shoes, dress, hat, Even though the full set includes a hat and dress, since you are not selling them as part of your listing, they shou
  4. Because calling leftists snowflakes and purposely trying to 'trigger' them isn't bashing either. 🤲🙏🤲🙏 Both sides have their rhetoric and insults. Acknowledging that you're just as brainwashed as they are, but from a different perspective, will let you actually listen and try to figure things out for yourself.
  5. I have a gacha resell store. Over 300 items. Not a single one has any keywords that might be considered a slur. And if I'm mistaken and one does? I will HAPPILY spend the five minutes or so changing and relisting the items.
  6. How is it a waste of time if it still improves our situation? Sure, you might not succeed with what your ultimate goal is, but you'll still make improvements. One of the most important lessons any of my teachers ever taught me was to dream big. It's something a lot of successful folks will tell you. Don't fear failure, accept the risk and even often the likely chance of it. Your comment implies that we should also give up on all anti-pollution measures. Because we'll never completely eliminate pollution. There's always going to be accidental leaks, natural disasters, etc that cause p
  7. Just because something isn't achievable doesn't mean you can't strive for it. There will always be injustice in the world, that doesn't mean we get rid of laws and courts. True equality may not be achievable. I'd argue that it isn't. That won't stop me from trying to work toward it though.
  8. Although I do agree the posting of the store images was unnecessary, I don't believe they violated any stated policies. I've looked through the TOS, community guidelines, and community standards. I can't find anything related to a 'no naming and shaming' policy. Nor any mention of posting publicly accessible information as being against policy. I think this, in itself, is part of the issue. There are multiple policies for different areas of SL. The forums have policies, the market has policies, in world has policies, content creation has it's own policies. And none of them state the same
  9. First: Do the listings show up when you are on 'All'? Or do they just not show up at all on the MP management screen? Second: This frustrated me and made me panic so much the first time I sold something. When you relog, you'll notice the stock=1 will change to stock=0. For some reason SL won't update the actual stock properly when you're in world. So it'll unlist the item, you'll 'know' you have 0, but it'll still show you as having one until you relog.
  10. Had a friend argue once that women shouldn't be allowed to go topless, because if he was driving and saw a topless woman he'd become distracted and likely end up crashing into something. Which, is probably true. But that's still HIS fault for not controlling HIS reaction. Not the womans. Personally, that argument frustrates me so much. We shouldn't be stopping people from doing things, unless the action is directly causing or promoting harm, because of someone else's reaction.
  11. There's a whole area that is set up with a Native American feel. It's not very authentic... But it exists. It's probably because your comments are usually nonconstructive and often bordering the line of disrespectful.
  12. Okay. I need to expand on what I said earlier. The Cruelty/Hatred clause could arguably allow me to report the Aborigine avatar, as you could argue that racism always promotes hatred. But... I doubt LL would agree. Clearly racist items like this need to be banned from the MarketPlace and preferably all of SL though. Banning keywords would not solve this issue. There needs to be a change to the content policy itself. "Cruel or hateful content that could harm, harass, promote or condone violence against, or that is primarily intended to incite hatred of, animals, or individuals or grou
  13. The new HQ was just opened up actually! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/KBar West/28/80/1203
  14. Tombstone definitely is! I popped over there the other day to look around myself. Apparently they've lost some sims over the years but it's still decently sized. I feel like there was one corner with some teepees as well. I honestly wish I could get some of the Hopi I know into SL. I can only imagine how impressive and unique the worlds they would create would be.
  15. Because I was curious, here's their YouTube video talking about the subscribed blog idea they have. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=df2_Ra91qY8 Personally, I'd really recommend asking for some sort of payment or confirmation of payment prior to any work. As well as proof of concept.
  16. This person is not the actual Lee Harrington who is well known in the kink community as an educator. Doing a quick google search shows the email address they have listed on their profile to not match the one publicly available on Lee's Facebook. Also, ICQ? Really. Who the hell uses that? If this was the actual Lee Harrington there would have been valid contact information that could be confirmed via Lee's website, http://passionandsoul.com/blog/, Facebook, Twitter, etc. This might be a Lee Harrington. But I find it sketch they didn't include a link to the blog they are su
  17. Kytteh, have you tried using a different web browser? IE, if you are using Firefox, use Chrome. It might be an issue with the browser and not SL directly. Would be good to try to eliminate any issues before making a ticket so they have an idea of what might be causing the problem.
  18. If you are using the in viewer browser, than it's an issue with the viewer you are using. I know Firestorm rarely likes to keep my login information saved, but I tend to alt tab and use an actual browser for listing items anyways.
  19. This is a tricky subject. LL actually does prevent certain words from being used as keywords, but from my knowledge only in the case of Trademark issues. 'Star Wars' for example will make your listing inactive until you remove it. So it would be easy for them to add other words, as the function is already in place. The problem is, what words? Most slurs are contextual. I'm quite glad we are, for the most part, past the phase of using 'gay' to mean stupid. However, the would gay could be considered a slur even though it also has many other potential uses. There are numerous words like
  20. Arcadia is not OpenCollar, Arcadia is Peanut or whatever Wendy is going to be calling it next week. As for suggestions, it really depends on exactly what you are looking for. Some make better collars while others make better gags. If you want a list of some awesome kink designers though, you can check out https://opencollar.cc/Open-Collar-Designers
  21. I turn on a podcast and work on uploading all the random crap I have to Wardrobe. I'm not sure if that counts as entertainment. But it's a thing. I often go exploring~ Either checking out stores or random locations. Decided to tour Nautilus lately, checked out the western bay area and then ended up wandering to the center. Ended up coming back with a friend and we took a lovely bike ride along north east path. There are so many amazing and unique places in SL. And if exploring isn't your thing, there's games! Spent some time killing zombies recently. Got addicted to a crane game. There's
  22. So you're basing your conclusion off a sampling of four sources? Sounds legit. I guess I'm just going to have to accept that I'm an unfriendly person. Aside from drawing more comments to this post though, this track of conversation isn't enlightening or going to assist syrup in finding friends. If you wanna talk more about how you believe gender is irrelevant please do feel free to message me in SL though.
  23. I'm normally quite friendly. Not so much to people who dismiss other peoples identity. You shouldn't allow someone's identity to influence how you interact with them. However, you can't ignore that our society does on a regular basis. It's the same issue as "Color blindness" when it comes to race. Deciding that YOU are going to ignore their race doesn't mean other people are going to. And by ignoring their race, you're also ignoring their history, their struggles, etc. So although it's important to acknowledge your own biases and your reactions based on those biases you also can
  24. Aaaaand this mentality is EXACTLY why someone who's non-binary would be seeking out other non-binary friends. 🤲🙏🤲🙏 Big round of applause for you completely missing the point and dismissing someone else's gender. For those who think that gender and sex, two completely different subjects and do not mean the same thing by the way, do not matter? Well, that's called privilege. Here's an example of gender and sex being important: https://community.secondlife.com/forums/topic/454271-accused-of-being-a-male-while-on-sl/ Need a non-SL example? https://en.wikipedia.org/w
