The big problem for @Patch Lindennow is that his reputation is shot. He may not realise it, and I personally am very sad about it as he is a good bloke, but he will never be trusted again. This is the second major misreading of the scale of the demand. Instead of one copy of the SSP region, they should immediately clone the whole thing somewhere else, that would fix the demand for both houseboats and new homes. If they change the contract now, to allow LL to move you to 'an equivalent property' at their discretion, they can even go back and fix it later.
I have been on SL for 15 years this August and is So Sad to see when people are commenting and bashing on a Long term Linden Lab Employee, He is doing his best to provide information/ and a service to everyone, but to question his reputation of a person of whom has been with Second Life for over 11 years is going beyond. Stupid.
I myself would love a New Linden home, I have been a Premium Member since 2004, But to say we would never trust his reputation ever again due to informing on the forums is sad to see. The homes will come out in regions in abundance in time, So please Stop having a bash session on someone is just doing their job and awesome job at that rate in my book.
