    How do left-handed people handle Second Life?

    I know you mean this in a lighthearted manner but having been ostracized for being left handed, as a child... it is not funny.

    Is there virtue in being a Second Life troll?

    The obvious, simple answer is no. The first Gor novel was published in 1966. We've learned a lot about how Earth and other planets work since then so it makes suspending certain beliefs that much harder to achieve. Especially the glaring ones like lower gravity producing heavier, stronger humanoid bodies when we now know lower gravity produces the opposite effect. This is what makes so many of the old(er) scifi movies so corny to us now. They're still fun to watch but there is just no way many of us can suspend current knowledge to achieve the level of immersion needed that was once so easily achieved. Those that still can, do. More power to you! 🛸

    Is there virtue in being a Second Life troll?

    A better question would be, does any good come from self gratification? That is what trolling amounts to, regardless of where the trolling occurs. Self gratification is not a virtue. Since only one person gets anything "good" out of it, it's pretty damn selfish.

    Guys its 2019 what can we bring to SL this year

    No, no, no. That's not how it works. You don't correct @Whirly Fizzle, she corrects you!

    They lied to me, too. I think they lied to all of us.

    If you're trying to figure me out, don't. Even I haven't [fully] figured me out yet and I've been working on it for 59 years!

    Post your best system avatar look! (Throwback friday)

    This was always one of my favorite stylings. Some of these creators are long gone. I really loved Snow's eyes. So much so that I used them exclusively and still do.

    Having been a resident for 14 years... SL will be here for another decade or two. Me? I'm still waiting for you to actually flounce instead of screaming that you are going to. And over something that has been in place for 7 years. Not LL's fault that your memory is lacking. Don't let the doorknob catch you in the @$$. I'll be kicking the door shut.

    A Derail Thread

    I see dead people.
  12. The way that really works is you are agreeing to something you know nothing about because the agreement is on a notecard included with the product. You don't get it before making the purchase. Do you (general) always sign legally binding contracts without reading them? No? So why should this be any different? Legally, it isn't.

    Do you like playing SL alone?

    Did that for about 10 years. Then I was gone for 4 years. Came back around October last year but haven't logged in, in a month or so. At least, for a few years there I could hang out on my land and the FS support group at the same time for up to 18 hours a day. What can I say? It was contact with the "outside" world. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Please let us see bots.

    That's how I remember it. I didn't want to go into much detail though, just in case my memory regarding that time was a bit faulty. And I wasn't off on my timing (the 8 - 10 years) by much! I was thinking it was closer to 8 than 10 but I hedged my bet anyway. Hopefully I didn't unintentionally imply that client tag displays had anything to do with the Emerald fiasco. Most of that blame can be laid on one certain person's shoulders. It was a huge red flag when said person insisted that they be able to see when I am on and WHERE I am at all times. Bastage damn near killed the computer I had at the time with all the... well... you know. It's all water under the bridge now. At least I was pretty dead on about the reason for client tags going the way of the dodo.

    Not going to argue about it. I was on the Emerald support team before LL shot it out of the sky. Went from there to Phoenix and was one of the last team members to make the switch to FS. My memory isn't that bad. I didn't say there weren't any copybot viewers that could appear to be Firestorm. I was pointing out that the nerfing of being able to see other people's clients in the overhead tags happened before FS was released. Or about the same time. Let's ask @Whirly Fizzle what she remembers. Take it away Whirlz!

    You mean Emerald. Phoenix hadn't risen from the ashes quite yet and FS was just a dream. Emerald wasn't the only viewer either.

    So I just found out about Sansar

    What we have here is a conundrum. On the one hand, as BilliJo says, there is no substitute for seeing the beauty of this planet in person. On the other hand, virtual reality/virtual worlds are good substitutes for those who can't go to those places, depending on physical and historical accuracy. Something is better than nothing.

    How did SL gain its "bad" reputation?

    So that's what's wrong with you. You have no excuses now because you have a youtube link! Adjust that attitude!

    You don't know what the Group W bench is?

    Sorry. That's the L bench not the Group W bench.

    What do you think about morphs?

    It's false advertising, which is illegal in the US. The difficulty lies in proving false advertising, which is why advertisers get away with it.
