However, they get scattered in different categories. Also, discussions regarding TPV's are used, but they also get scattered. Proposal: We should have subsections in the Technology section specific for Mac users and for TPV users. This would make searching useful information easier for every one by consolidating into categories specific to these. ______________________
  2. ok, your comments... "Never did I imply that every1 can afford a computer suited for SL, and I actually was sympathetic to people without the money to spend on a new PC. I personally need a higher end PC for what I work on now, which is not SL, and just can't afford to spend the money, and this is my business. So, I do have some sympathy. The rest of what you said only supports my assertion that a user with a higher end PC is more likely to have the money to spend in a virtual world. I did not assume any1 got a PC just for SL. What I was implying was that some1 that is going to spend alot of

This should be obvious, but a person with a low end computer is going to have much less cash to spend than some1 with a high-end computer. Now, of course, there are exceptions for every rule, but on average, this will be true." Not sure where to start on that. you might pick up a copy of an older book "The Millionaire Mind" and review on how people with money spend cash. when I arrived here, everyone I met was on a laptop.
  4. sure are a lot logged into the forum right now. spooky. a roustabout maybe.

He even made a fake first life profile with a fake photo of this ALT Partner. I find this unethical. Guests are being asked to Tip the DJ's Alt. I see it as a Scam. Since this is a Public figure in SL. Someone asking you for L$, do you feel that it should ok to post information about this in your profile? I feel that people who ask to be compensated in SL, need to be required to be honest as to where that money is going. Should Public
  6. I was being sarcastic too it appears that she has altered the original post once again, to include perhaps another agenda.

Was this misleading to get people to participate in some study and is THAT ethical? I find this whole thread she/he started to possibly (using the word loosely here) mislead people into this non-discussion. Wonder if there is any guidelines about this? I think ethics and morals apply to the OP and in no way a DJ using an alt. Just saying. LOL and replies change from post to post first we don't care about other people and then we are intelligent. Should I l

The edit button is a legal option, right. So there is nothing wrong with using it. Also , your whole arguement here has been about the right to privacy of personal information. Maybe you convinced me. "legal options" ??? you are getting your worlds mixed up. if you wanted to take action about a perceived problem, then you would file an Abuse Report, also known as an AR. someone here can tell you h

I think everyone agrees that it is time to close the thread. Thanks for offering your comments. Why stop now? finally getting a track on the scent of the scam.

It was hard to stay on task and get a good discussion because it is a very emotional and controversal subject. But I think we did for the most part.. People who post here are very intelligent and will weigh both sides of the issue, and wiith time will find a solution that works for the good of our community. I still believe people are inherently good. Though I have been burned bady here in SL, I did try to keep this about Ethics and not my personal problem. After 21
  11. oh. you're working on a paper. how interesting. ETA: "I am working on a paper....." is now missing from your post. and was missing from your original post. let's talk trust and ethics now.

Hard times are real. Just a thought. Exactly. When she gets back ask her to find out what kind of a computer he is using. need to copy down the specs.
  13. EvaFord wrote: The Discussion has evolved as all good discussions do. Don't you think it is much more interesting to discuss the ethical and unethical use of ALTS for fun and for business purposes as opposed to focusing on a personal issue. ? Do you agree that ALTS can be used to scam and cause hurt in SL? I agree that there are valid uses for them. So let's come up with a creative way to solve the negative aspects and make SL a safer place. But I I think in order to to that we have to start small......... I retract any empathy for your situation. Not your prop and entertai

Immerse a bit in another community that does it strictly roleplay. Learn more about what other people use SL for. Have an adventure. Role play is FUN ! And wonderful escape in SL. :) Great example of creative use of ALTS in SL. I had to erase my response. I don't feel like getting another vacation at the moment. I think there is more to this story. There usually is. Considering the most recen
