  1. Posters on adfarms are too tame. Exploding pigs and volleys of gunfire as Le Pen opens HQ in virtual world Those were the days...
  2. Hi! Does your welcome return indicate that LL's new owners have decided to bring you back as the new CEO?
  3. Whoever said "Jumpman Lane" three times at midnight recently needs to consider the consequences of their actions next time. Just don't feed him after midnight, for heaven's sake. WB Jumpy! Good to see you again! (I hope).
  4. Some might think that if "not running smoothly" could, on its own, kill SL, that would have happened years ago.
  5. As Sherlock Holmes remarks in A Scandal In Bohemia.
  6. KT is on the right track -- whatever it's hearing, it's not a vector. Try llOwnerSay(message) as well as llOwnerSay((string)V), and see what the message actually is.
  7. Not quite, I think. If you want the usename, then use llGetUsername(llDetectedKey(0)), I think. llDetectedName will give your full name (Innula Zenovka) if you have a last name, otherwise Joe123 Resident.
  8. You've not read the paper you're discussing at such length, have you? In particular, you haven't read Section 3, Experimental Design, which explains how they produced the resumes and conducted the experiment (pages 6-9). https://www.nber.org/papers/w9873.pdf
  9. For heaven's sake, if you had actually bothered to read the article to which Luna linked, you would have seen that the experimenters sent out resumes identical save for the names of the applicants, which were altered to by typically white names or typically black names. "We perform a field experiment to measure racial discrimination in the labor market. We respond with fictitious resumes to help-wanted ads in Boston and Chicago newspapers. To manipulate perception of race, each resume is assigned either a very African American sounding name or a very White sounding name. The result
  10. I think you mean you're not denying it does happen, not that it doesn't, but be that as it may, I think the point about institutional and systemic racism is that, when you look particular indicators -- in this case who gets appointed to particular jobs, but also educational outcomes, risk of being killed by the police, prison population, life expectancy, infant mortality rate, deaths from Covid-19 and so on -- then it becomes clear that, whatever the particular circumstances that lead to someone getting a job or not, obtaining a university degree, going to prison, etc, that black people in t
  11. Because they don't want a left-wing government to raise their taxes in order to pay for properly-funded public services, pensions, unemployment benefit, and so on, and also to raise minimum wages and introduce environmental controls that would affect their wealth.

  13. else if (request_id == gHttpRequestId2) { if (status == 200 && llSubStringIndex(body, "<item>") != -1){ //do something } }
  14. Yes, and that's the problem. You see something happening, but if you don't look at the underlying causes or reasons, then when you call things as you see them, you're simply describing what you think you see in particular cases, and that doesn't really help understand or fix any problems. If you look at the figures, black men are far more likely to die while interacting with the police in the US, or as a result of that interaction, than are white men. Similarly, black men are far more likely to be convicted of felony crimes, and to be incarcerated, than are white men. There's n
  15. I can't remember where I read this, but it seems that, at least in the US, if you meet a violent end at the hands of a stranger, that stranger is far more likely be a white man driving an automobile , probably drunk, high or asleep at the wheel, than from anyone else. But for some reason many people don't worry half so much about lethal white drivers as they do about much less severe threats.
