  1. There are a LOT of people in sl that would fit this description, far more than I had once imagined there would be (outside of those you might expect to find because you know their purpose is to remain within a smaller scope of sl, that is). More often than not, they don't realize how small their bubble really is. Sometimes their experience is so limited that it forces a smaller bubble than they're willing to realize (distinction there is important) too. I run into people like this a lot more than I used to. Mostly they're people that get the vast majority of their information from group chats
  2. See, this is the problem.... NO many don't actually think that at all. I certainly don't, and I doubt anyone on the forums actually does. The vast majority of tinies are not in human form at all, and NO dinkies are. So, no, that's really you just projecting, and although I'm not sure why, I do hope someday you realize that everyone around you isn't so stupid that we need this explained constantly, lol. I think this might be part of why you get what seems like crabby responses from people, because you harp on this issue a lot and constantly have this need to explain to everyone what a dinkie or
  3. I loathe most inworld shopping, so when I do it, it's with a specific purpose in mind. An enormous amount of my actual purchases are made on MP and yes for many merchants that is very much their primary source of revenue. Some folks prefer purchasing on MP because it gives them the option of leaving a review (those folks may be fewer and far between, but they do exist). I like it because I don't have to wander all over some place to find something specific (forced landing point, widespread store, etc.. etc..). Even many occasions when I go inworld to look at something, I may still very well pu
  4. Yeah I look at their descriptions and such too paying little to no attention to traffic numbers, because I know what sorts of things can inflate them, and how. I'm more interested in WHAT is there, really. But, that's just my approach.
  5. I didn't say they don't add value to SL overall, they very much do. I enjoyed them quite a bit myself, I know how valuable they can be. What I said is they have the same effect on the traffic of the location as unmanned avs do (which also includes avs often called bots but not actually slated as registered bots). In that regard they have the same effect on traffic....not value for sl, but traffic numbers. So if one breaks it, they both do.
  6. Nearly everyone I know does indeed use search in this manner. Everyone I help find things, uses search this way. Every new person I encounter that is searching for something or asks for search assistance uses search this way as well. When I want to search something, commercially or simply to visit, I too, use search this way. I suspect there's probably a lot more of us that do than don't (those that use legacy search anyway). In fact, I don't use classified for anything and don't know anyone that does. (I know those folks exist, I just don't know them )
  7. The results of the product is the same as someone having a bunch of avs (unmanned, whether slated as bots in the legal sense, or not) parked on the sim. Most of the people that use his product, and similar products (there's a whole bunch of them, really, lol) are not at these locations to patronize the locations typical wares. They are there, solely for personal gain. That is why he advertises his product as a means for increasing traffic, because it DOES inflate traffic (most of the time it can take about an hour or so to fish a buoy, depending on things like lag, if there's an event, if ther
  8. Please stop being, well, whatever this rant was. I speak for no one but myself, unless specifically stated so. I know what a dinkie is, I know what a tiny is. I don't need to be told constantly, no one does, most of us truly are well aware, as evidenced by numerous threads in which they're mentioned. You seem to have this thought process that none of us could possibly know what they are or what you're talking about. I spend half my time in sl as a hamster...ftr. I also know that anyone, that is the person behind the avatar, regardless of the type of avatar they choose to have
  9. Mine's empty, I haven't forgotten a single person that's not on it
  10. A big ego can exist even on the smallest of creature, and it's rarely becoming on anyone (and this is what I meant about letting some balls just roll....lest you intend to make things worse or be perceived in a light you don't intend).
  11. Oh my I had and have nothing, whatsoever, to do with any of that, and don't particularly care about it either. Nothing I said had anything to do with it. I agree with Rowan, bringing some things up every single chance one gets is rarely ever productive. Sometimes (most of the time) beating a long dead horse is a bad idea. Sometime discussing an issue while it's going on can lead to a better discussion of a problem, but in some cases, it's really, really not productive and can only lead to further distance one's self from the audience which they're trying to address (and make things m
  12. rolling eyes I'd use it in a "knock it off, you're being ridiculous" sort of way, far more frequently than I use the reactions now, because it's super fitting for some
  13. Ditto haha though perhaps maybe not for the same reason, I'm particularly fond os this emoji and wish it were one of the reaction buttons. I would definitely use it (and I don't really use the reaction buttons, so that's saying something)
  14. Sometimes people can irritate the crap out of others, even just temporarily, and I think it might fuel some of the responses people see. That whole "I'm fed up with you at this moment, and I need you to know it", effect. Sometimes people find slights in everything someone says, or thinks of everything someone says as a slight against them anyway, and will therefore respond with that frame of mind, no matter who they're talking to, even someone that agrees with them. At that very moment, they allow that frame of mind to cloud every judgment, so the entire world (forum?) becomes an irritant and
