  1. Apparently Mr. Trump is on that track. Well, he certainly isn´t the first politician in history - regardless left or right - who plays that kind of card and he won´t be the last one. He only follows the storybook of history. And the more *we* waste time on discussing the antifa bogus the more *we* lose focus on the things which really matter now.
  2. Until the ones who declared antifa being responsible for the violence (and who hived them onto the same level of ISIL, AQ and the like) come up with some solid proof for their claims... /me yawns Just another attempt to distract the audience from the real issues, just another idiotic propaganda move.
  3. Why the hell do you demand that from a completely non-violent activist movement like BLM, which demands nothing but justice, while justice defines itself by being justice? Why do you miss such a statement? Does everyone who protests massively but peacefully now and has done so before and will do so in the future for WHATEVER reason have to carry a badge which proclaims "no lootings!"? Come on....
  4. I cannot find any statement on Mister Trumps website which condems the launching of teargas and rubber bullets and shock grenades at peaceful protesters, only because Mr. Trump had the glorious idea of doing a pointless propaganda photoshoot at a church which did not invite him.
  5. I beg your pardon. According to your logic the holocaust was not worth being "yammering about", because it was not about "us"? Did someone have to be a jew at Auschwitz to understand the dimensions of the crime? Also, I do not notice any "yammering" right now, in regards to the protests, neither here nor elsewhere on the planet. Please hold your breath and think twice before you hit the send button.

  10. It does. https://www.lindenlab.com/legal/intellectual-property-infringement-notification-policy https://dmca.lindenlab.com/ You can be a mule from mars and still file a DMCA. But that isn´t related to the SL permission system AT ALL. 🙂
  11. That´s not IP law/right, it´s just what it is meant to be: We can define the grade of what other people can or can not do with our things within SL. And that´s it. IP laws and IP rights are something different, and WAY more complex. And better don´t adress that in any forum, haha. 😉

  13. Don´t get people started on IP right or copyright issues! 😎 SL copy/mod/transfer isn´t related to that anyway, so no point in directing the discussion to that swamp.
  14. No one will accidently stumble onto someones "property" (there is none in that sense in SL, if anyone "owns" any piece of "SL land" in the RL legal sense then it´s LL, and only LL) once someone shuts down the parcel. So no one will get mad, eh. The ToS are pretty clear, anyway. So this is more like a battle of opinions on how to deal with the options SL offers, which seems to include projecting basic RL attitudes on life, the universe and all the rest. 🤪
  15. OK, so let´s go philosophical, UCK. Not sure if there are two sides of the aisle there. Human beings bring their interpretation of what a "life" is, their understanding of what "rules" are - and what the universe and all the rest is or should be about - along into SL. Regardless the "game" or "reality" grade, it´s always present. Opinions on this and that - technical issues aside - in SL always reflect their RL experiences. I do not exclude myself there. Also, some take things easy, some take things seriously. But this also is a reflection of their RL experience. Why do we wanna look like Hollywood Stars and why do we spend hundreds of dollars on our avis? While we could be a magic red cloud for no cost but a messed up hairbase? The permanent (!) ban line or the permanently (!) running security orb are simply a personal reflection, nothing more and nothing less. My home, my castle. Doors shut. Also, it semingly prevents potential psychological stress caused by any kind of confronting strangers, unpredicted events and so on. In many cases it´s the basic assumption that everyone coming along is a potential thug, griefer, thief or whatever else evil the planet has ever born. That´s common in RL, and so it is in SL. Often it is a matter of technical limits, like the impossibility to grant friends or admins eject and ban rights without setting up a complicated group with roles and all that. And yeah, i paid for it and so i can do what i want. But all the moral and pseudo-philosphical bs to "justify" one´s granted right to permaban people and shut down a parcel (or not to) is completely hilarious. Enough philosophy. UCK!
