  1. The only difference between you and me on this is I prefer phone calls to text messages*. And I hate talking on the phone after having worked at a few call centers. So instead of calling or texting, see me face to face so I can read your lips and you won't have to repeat things. *I think, when I've had a cell phone in the past, I've sent a total of 5 text messages. The vast majority of texts I got were advertisements.
  2. It did not appear to be a joke to me. I haven't logged in world in a while due to my health so I can't see your profile. I don't use the web profiles. It was not intentional. My apologies. My avatar is not white and never has been white in 16 years. Nor am I white in RL. I am Lakota. I speak AS a minority because I am one. In more ways the one, being neither white nor male. Never heard of Brad Williams and frankly don't care. I never said one word stating I want to limit language on SL. I have to deal with racists and bigots in RL on a daily basis, have done so for 60 years and will have to do so for the rest of my life. Next.
  3. I don't see how. Looks pretty cut and dried to me. IF that is what they meant then why not just say "everyone sees things in black and white on SL" instead of making such a blatant racist statement. Neither statement is true. Edited to correct pronoun. Again, I apologize for the error. It was not intentional.
  4. The part that gets me is the "everyone is white on SL". What a load of bullcrap and just so wrong on so many levels. I have no words but I sure do have a sudden desire to punch someone's teeth so far down their throat, they'd be picking them out of their ass for a month.
  5. Maybe for the same reason(s) the right never does either. At least in the US the right never does. Every time they come into power (like now) they (the right in the US) destroys anything that is already in place and far better than what the right offers those of us who are "have nots". Then when they are no longer in power, we have to start all over again because they set us back 100 years. "Socialism" worked for First Nations people for more than 40,000 years. Not because of the relatively small population size but because people knew that was the best way to stay alive. Everyone had food in the belly, clothing on their backs, shelter from the weather because they worked for everyone, not just themselves and/or their families. Frankly, people who can trace their ancestry back to Eurasia have their way of thinking so ingrained that I don't think they can change it. Which means nothing will ever change. Not really. Certainly not for the better or for the good of the people as a whole. I don't except you to understand where I'm coming from but maybe what I have said will allow you to change your perspective a little bit.
  6. @Dakota Linden I do when I can figure out which dropdown to use under Reason for Flag. Not as Advertised - Incorrect Permissions does not show in the dropdown and it will not let me change the Flag Category from Listing Violations. Not sure why that is. Never had the Flag Cat. grayed out like this before. Since it won't let me do a snip, the two closest to that are Item Not as Advertised and Spam or Disallowed Listing Practices. Which one should I choose?
  7. I had to turn the music down because the clash was so jarring I couldn't watch it with the music. I did like the Lady Godiva silhouette though. If that's the kind of thing people are wearing to clubs in SL I'm glad I quit going to them years ago. lol
  8. Yes, even if someone is banned from a parcel or region nothing is returned unless the owner of the parcel or region (or management) does so deliberately. Things just don't return to someone's inventory on their own.
  9. Been there done that. I still see some of them because the creator didn't bother with the permissions display setting that shows on the right hand side of the page. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/NINI-Planet-Next-To-U-Skirt-GRAY/18739717
  10. IMO, all gachas, regardless of item or "playable" on the MP, are annoying. Why? Because I do not purchase no copy items, nor will I jump through a creator's hoops to get one that is copy/mod/no trans. Gachas should be confined to inworld machines rather than cluttering up the MP. But no one gives a crap about that. Certainly not LL.
  11. That kind of thing is one of the reasons (blatant abuse) I use the MP more as a catalog than to make purchases. The only creators I will buy from on the MP are the ones whose work I know. If it's someone I'm not familiar with their work and they don't have an inworld store with the items on display where I can inspect the quality of their work, I won't buy from them. I refuse to enable anyone's crappy "business practices".
  12. Using the MP as a gacha machine. I have no words.
  13. I'm not allowed more than $1300 US gross income a month if I want to keep eating. Can you pay your rent/mortgage and all your bills on that? I can't. I also live in one of the cheapest places possible in this state. My rent goes up every freakin year and I can't afford to move this hunk of junk I live in. A minimum of $10,000 is what it would take after finding either another park that has space or buying land to put it on, none of which I have the money to do. If I sell it I become homeless in short order. 1980 models don't bring near the amount of money you might think. I can't work until I get treatment and I have no idea when that will be because I have other health issues that have to be taken care of first. Some of you just don't have any idea just how good you really have it. JFC on a broken pogo stick what do you want from me? My freakin life history? Screw you and the horse you rode in on, the horse you ride out on and any horse you ever freakin ride.
  14. Never said we didn't have it decent. I've been in games like that. Needless to say I never paid for an account much less continued to play the game because I simple did not and do not have that kind of money. There's $7 in my bank account right now to last me the rest of the month. I may lose my SNAP benefits and my Medicaid because certain people think I deserve to starve and die a horrible, painful death because I won't be able to get the life saving treatment I need. It's not like I expect to get everything for nothing, but nickel and diming me to death isn't going to cut it and it damn sure isn't going to keep me as a customer. I had enough of staring at the 4 walls because I couldn't afford a tv much less cable in my younger days. I have no desire to go back to that but the way things are going, I might as well find a frikkin cave to live in for what little time I'll have left. Didn't do me a damn bit of good to start working at age 14.
  15. I used to post using nothing but smilies/emojis at times on a forum that no longer exists. Not once did anyone ever ask for a translation because they understood it without needing to ask.
  16. I seriously doubt they would even consider the idea. For some unknown reason (excuse), LL doesn't seem to think it would be a good idea to give basics any kind of rewards. To them, we're second class residents and don't deserve anything. They'd be more than happy to take from us though as they attempted fairly recently with announcing they were going to take groups from basics yet increase groups for premiums. Which made no sense at all given the issues with chat lag in groups, among other issues like region crossings. Decreasing the amount for basics and then turning right around and increasing it for premiums wasn't alleviating the problem, it was exacaberating it. Not to mention pissing basics off. There were some people who even went so far as to quit SL because of that. Can't say I blame them.
  17. You'd probably have better luck posting this in the employment section. https://community.secondlife.com/forums/forum/312-inworld-employment/
  18. RL other half is a two finger typist but I'm the one with the arthritis. It doesn't bother me much most of the time but winters can be brutal at times. I think it may have something to do with being a pianist in my early years and typing on a daily basis now. Of course I "pop my knuckles" from time to time to release the nitrogen gas that gets trapped in the joints. Of course I have other joints that pop on their own like my knees and ankles. In my younger days I'd get out of bed to snap , crackle, pop and it wasn't Rice Krispies. It's been decades since the last time it happened though so it seems to have stopped for good.
  19. I didn't just buy Ls though. I "owned" a homestead for years at $125 US per month. Which adds up to $1500 US annually. That may not seem like much to most but for us, it's a lot of money to shell out every month when your income is below national poverty level. That is why I can never afford to live alone again. My landlords were not making any profit off my homestead. Every bit of it went to LL because grandfathered when they jacked up the land prices way back when. Hmmm... that's not a bad idea really but LL would never go for it. For one of two reasons. Either their finances are not in order or they're just flat out greedy. Not sure which I'd prefer. Both are equally scary because they both mean an end to SL sooner rather than later.
  20. Voice is pointless for those of us who are deaf or have hearing loss and/or tinnitus. Facial recognition? No way. LL would charge us out the ass for that.
