  1. His "tone" in the OP is what made the thread go south. It stunk to high heaven of narcissism.
  2. It has been from the get go. I don't have any faith or hope left that it will ever change. Not after more than a decade of no changes.
  3. The Obama Lama Ding Dong one is my favorite. And that's not tea... it's cofeve with cream and sugar. lol
  4. You might want to give that information to people who haven't been building in SL for 15 years and don't know any better. Oh wait... you just did. That is, if they know of the existence of the forum or even read it.
  5. Not that I've seen today. I'll be blocking him on the forum if he comes back here. It was still there this morning. *goes to look* ETA: Nope. It's gone. They must have deleted it in the past half hour or so which is about right time wise. It's 9:20 AM now.
  6. I have the feeling it isn't just an opinion of what should be done when I take into consideration LL's past track record that I know of... When I have that feeling that a bombshell is about to drop, it's rarely wrong. Just a question of when. It wouldn't surprise me if this were the bombshell I've been waiting for. It's already falling. It's just a question as to what it is and when it hits. It's Linden Lab. There's always a bombshell.
  7. Wait... so all the effort and work I've been putting into making my creations as low LI as possible has all been wasted since, at some point in the future, LI is just going to increase after LL increased region/parcel allowances? Sounds an awful lot like the recent blowup over decreasing basic account group allowances (7) in order to be able to increase premium group allowances (10) in order to reduce the "load" on the servers. Just how is decreasing by 7 and increasing by 10 supposed to help when you end up with 3 more groups per premium account than what you started with? Increasing the load is supposed to help? Rhetorical questions. Still the same old Linden Lab Dog and Pony Show.
  8. I logged in yesterday morning with the specific purpose of blocking inworld for that reason. I'm also finding it a bit odd that nothing has been done in the past 48 hours. It's almost as if he knows he can get away with it. Frankly, this isn't the only forum that reeks of favoritism by mods.
  9. Being better at being decent human beings? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  10. Thanks. You've just convinced me that going premium is not something I want to do. Not because of the flags. The only thing the flags are advertising is a rez zone for boats. A very specific use. It's a service provided for free by the residents for residents. Very thoughtful of them actually. There was a time when it was almost impossible to find somewhere to rez your catamaran and be able to sail it away from where you rezzed it. It was even harder to find and place to rez a sail something larger than a catamaran. So I, for one, am grateful there are those willing to pay for the waterfront and allow complete strangers to use their dock(s) for free. It's even that way in RL still, in some places.
  11. Deals/contracts get renegotiated periodically so it's probably changed several times since the original contract was negotiated. In all likelihood, in favor of PayPal, which makes the fee hikes for residents understandable. LL's costs go up and they are of the opinion they must recoup that loss and the only way they see (even though it isn't the only way) to do that is to raise the residents' fees. Good business practice in principle but not in practice.
  12. Who said bomb? I said bombshell. You may have never heard the expression "drop a bombshell" so here ya go; drop a bombshell. Make an unexpected or shattering announcement. For example, Bill dropped a bombshell when he said he was quitting. This expression, which alludes to the destruction caused by a falling bomb, dates from World War I. https://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/drop+a+bombshell
  13. I'm just waiting for them to drop the bombshell. There's always one.
  14. Atari. Ancient history. I laughed at all the jokes. I thought the outrage died out long ago. Who knew.
  15. No, it doesn't mean I think you are a misogynist. It just means that one is a much more important issue for me than the other. On the other hand, a misogamist is a marriage-hater. You're not one of those... are you?
  16. You didn't state that you were talking about just the smoking aspect of the commercials. What else was I supposed to think other than you were talking about the commercials as a whole, not just the product. This is twice in two days. I feel like traps are being laid for me and I have no idea why that is being done. I'm already walking on eggshells here after more than 15 years of no suspensions or bans and then all of a sudden that changes. If people really do hate me that much then it's time for me to disappear.
  17. You should have made that clear to begin with.
  18. When I win the lottery, I'm going to set up an estate of oh say 9 regions and guess what. Premium members will not be allowed access. So there.
  19. This crap of "basics don't contribute" needs to stop. It has NO basis in fact or logic. It's a lie. A bald faced lie.
  20. How long is the Linden Home waiting list now? 10 years?
  21. That collection of commercials shows how the company framed the product as "tailored for the feminine hand," and, more to the point, as a symbol of women's empowerment. In 1968. The ad campaign successfully captured the zeitgeist of the US at that time with an image of a confident, tall, slender, pants suit-wearing woman on the go, mirroring the country’s mainstream awareness of the women’s rights movement, led by feminist Gloria Steinem, Bella Abzug, Betty Friedan and many other activists. Yeah, that's tacky alright. Reflecting the progress women have made in equality is always tacky.
