  1. 1. This has been happening for ten years now. Routinely Gmail tosses everything from Second Life into the spam folder; I have to gut it out and inform them, yet again, that it's not spam. Why is the Lab concerned *now* about being listed as spam email, when they weren't concerned when it *started* a decade ago? 2. I *rely* on offline messages from groups. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Even with that, sometimes messages cap, so I have to go through all my groups and check for new notices. Why can't this continue as standard practice? 3. At least in Firestorm, Ms. Magic, at the bottom of each group's information page, there are group settings to show the group, below that to receive group notices, and below that to receive group IMs. Beyond that (again, at least in Firestorm), going to Avatar > Preferences > Chat > Notices, then going down to 'Email me IMs when I'm offline', and checking that box, will give you the option to have things mailed to you or not. I don't know what will happen if the Lindens delete this option. That would be very bad. 4. This is a very bad idea. It will lead to more controversy than it will give solutions. I urge the Lindens to reconsider their actions.

This is why on some parts of the grid the term "spampire" is used. I know that there are good, honorable, Bloodlines players--I've met them, I know they're out there. But I've met far more annoying, irritating "players" who treat the bite offer as the sum of all roleplay--as if getting a single bite request, and saying yes or no, stands in for paragraphs of exposition and dialogue. I wouldn't mind so much if everyone in Bloodlines RP actually roleplayed, but many don't, and they don't seem to care to learn. Because of this, I'd have to say I'm absolutely in favor of sim owners protecting themselves however they see fit--by banning, blocking, or making requests. After all, Bloodlines members can always leave the sim, it's not as if the sim owner can actively force anyone to wear anything they don't agree to wear.
