Here in first life, it is a common animal-rescue practice to include a clause in the adoption of an animal allowing the rescue organization to reclaim it if they see fit. The purpose is to make sure that the animals aren't being abused or neglected or used to fight, but typically conditions are not spelled out in order to avoid arguments over the interpretation of abuse or neglect. It is also typical to specify that any money

I'm not understanding how you were banned from the game. For mentioning you were selling them? I guess this goes way over my head. If I'd ever had any temptation to get into breedables, this cured it. edit, cause I had misspelled meroos ^^ No, I was banned because they *CLAIMED* I had broken their TOS.. which, I have not, never would, never have.. but, even so.. I don't care if they banned me.. the problem I have, i

I'm still technically challenged, I guess! Never tried to post with it. Thanks for the dotted line. No problem.. back on my pc now.. Anyway.. am I wrong, or is this type of practice against the LL tos ?
  4. MasterEdward Avril wrote The reason you can not find it, is because Catherine chose to remove the post. She told me this directly. Your post is still there. I have the page open, right at this moment. It's in the blog post announcing the Halloween costumes, for the person who wanted to know. BTW Edward not to be a noodge, but, could you put a line or something between what others said and your reply? It looks like you said the whole thing. Or, your name is going on someone else's post. =============================================================== Sorry, posting from my iPad

None of these breedables people will ever a single linden from THIS poster. I wouldn't touch their crap with a 10M pole. I don't know about other breedables, but any merchant in second life that practices such illegal practices, should be banned from second life in my opinion.
  6. Ranting on a LL website isn't going to get you anywhere. The court of public opinion has no authority and is frequently completely ignorant of the law. If you're so convinced that you've been wronged you should retain competent legal counsel. Be assured, I am not here to rant, merely to both educate and express my public opinions, as we all are.
  7. You say that I don't know the full story. That may be because you seem incapable or unwilling to tell us what that might be. Having re-read your post here, my impression is that we have selective snippets. I should also add that I have searched against your name on the Meeroo website and your only post (at least your only post now visible) is that which you claim got you banned and which I earlier set out in full. What had caused you to express disgust in that post? Had the issue which led to you being banned already arisen? If so, how can you claim the post expressing disgust got you banned?
  8. I'm sorry to hear that. Meeroos are a big investment. I express myself there as well although I hope they wouldn't see it as negative since I do also say many positive things, and am active and proactive in the meeroo community. It is very scary to me that my investment could just POOF. I do not think that should ever happen, once something has been purchased. At least give the person an opportunity to give their belongings to someone else, or to sell them. If they want to stop them posting there, or playing in future that is another thing and within their rights I guess. But, taking belon

Venus Petrov wrote: I am not an owner of any type of breedable but it sounds like the jist of this tale of woe is to make sure you read and understand any agreement upon purchase, abide by the rules set forth by the seller, and enjoy your toys. Their TOS states.. "altering scripts.. etc" Which I have not done. EVER.

There isn't much LL can do that will punish people who abuse abilities like this. What I mean is that, at most, LL can remove the privilege of access to SL by banning people. If you want them really punished you need to take it to RL. Those affected need to launch a RL class action against the creators of these objects. The
  12. Ian Undercroft wrote: With respect Ceka, what you say is nonsense. The Meeroos ToS gives you licence you access to the product and database. If you breach that licence, it may be terminated at the instance of the licensor. The meeroos will then "poof" because they are, for their continued existence, dependant on access to the database. The right of a licensor to terminate a licence in specified circumstances is a basic and elementary element of the law of contract. Have you read that TOS, sir? I have. I did not break ANY TOS, yet they felt the right to do what they did.

I can see if someone were to complain about something and not be allowed to purchase anymore.. but they shouldn't have the poswer to take back what was sold to you ..not unless it was at fair market value or atleast a total refund.. it's theft otherwise..i don't care how much you irritated anyone..what is paid for is paid for.. this is the area that LL needs to have things able to be AR'd..imagine if all creators did this.. those scripts were really made for creators of builds th

Probably because it's not about the breedable itself so much as the fact that creators are allowed to script in ways to return, delete, or cripple a valid purchased product at their own whim, without having to clearly and blatantly notify the customer before purchase. For whatever reason this kind of functionality is included, it amounts to nothing more than a "bait and switch" when it's used for ANY single thing other than post-copy (copybot) protection.
