reserved for comment, this is spiraliing out of control

was at the meeting. if you want a participants input, let one respond before you create a whole world in your heads and speculate about everything. after I comment, let your imaginations run wild, but if you want a statement from a "Stakeholder", reserve your comments until you get one. writing my personal thoughts now, this space will be edited later with my actual comments.

after i post run away with your conspiracy theories all you want, but as far as I have read, I am the only one posting who was there, so if you have any desire to hear what went down, wait until I post.

Otherwise you are just spinning your wheels.

To Be Edited and Updated, I dunno, within an hour or 2 maybe. I have a lot to say on this muckraking and consipacy nonsense. Sit back you will be reading a book because I can talk a lot

post was 2 parts, so added it when it was finalized

Why would I not comment because I wasn't there and because you tell me to??

Nothing's out of control but the inflated sense of manufactured self-importance that I've read in the first message - and thus the comments.

You do realize we have read the transcript, right?

You do realize that two of the folks who espouse conspiracy theories (FIC) the most were doing most of the talking, right?

The biggest "muckraker" SL has ever seen was present and commenting.

The person chairing the meeting talked of being above a common user. She also spoke of NDA's.

The name of the group has "justice" in it, and now we hear that there will be a closed meeting with "representatives" of this "justice" organization. That makes my spidey-sense tingle.

This whole thing stinks of rotten fish, and your threat of writing an essay on it isn't going to change anything for me. Not when the transcript is right in front of me.

Philip was careful to quash any propostions for NDAs and the like, and for that I am thankful, however, I am dissapointed that they would even show up for a meeting with ONE group, especially after one of the officers of that group has screamed from the mountaintop that he thinks just this type of thing is wrong.

Until ANY group can request and receive such a meeting, this is wrong. Oh so wrong.

I'm finding this quite amusing at the moment.

Please continue with more posts on what Mama and Pappa Linden have in store for their little netizens of the great and powerful country called Second Life.

Thank you Siggy, once again for making my coffee spew early in the morning while I read. Thank you, Kris for posting the obvious in a tongue and cheek style. Thank you, Merwan for learning how to get your dark irony on the forums.

But if LL is not a hosting service, it's not a service provider -- what else can you call it but a country -- and we all know that a country needs a strong leadership to insure that justice is served to it's netizins.

Long live the FUC! That's the Feted UBER Core that has just been formed. I was thrilled to read the about the first FUC in SL. Like a soap opera, I can't wait to see what happens during the next FUC meeting!

Pft, posers, I've been calling for publication of a Linden handbook since 04 at the latest. :P

Proof: /120/78/23775/1.html#post226681

Please Note

If a Linden Hand/rule book is to be published, I suggest doing the suggestion one person made, put it in the Library. Or on the website somewhere.

Giving it to one user specificly to spread is *not* going to help mass-circulation ability (I don't care who it's given to, it's not a good idea to give it to just one person if the goal is for *everyone* to be able to read it).

Yeah. Except I wouldnt want a single one of the residents involved in that conversation speaking on my behalf. It must be my blind jealousy, of course, but there are at least three people in that conversation that I find to be beyond contempt. The words I'd like to use to describe them would get me permanently banned.

:eek:

If you want facts shut your mouth and open your ears long enough to hear it

if you dont want the facts keep shooting your mouth off, you will look the fool later

you can beleive what i have to say or not, its your choice but the LEAST you could do if you have any interest in FACTS is to listen to someone who was there

God, just what we need another damn Prok with more mouth than ear and not enough good sense to gather facts from all sides before coming to some conclusions

call me a liar and whatever else you want AFTER I have a chance to respond, or don't you care enough to hear 2 sides before asserting you know everything?

Back to responding to all posts prior to the one I will edit. I will respond to everything prior to my edit post. Anything after that before I have a chance to respond will be ignored as you ignored me, so why would I give you any more than you offered me?

I'm still chuckling about Anshe asking for an NDA on the group's discussions. That tells me just about all I need to know about its objectives, but I still don't see a reason to panic. The Lindens are good people.

This only confirms what I've always said about Prokofy, though. His gripe wasn't that that a group had influence. His gripe was that he wasn't a part of it.

Oz, many of us asked for a Linden handbook be written and published as a link off the website two years ago. Not only to provide the citizens of this fine country with an understanding of what responsibilities a Liason has... but also to protect the Liason as to what he/she should and should NOT do; and to be used as a form of a training manual.

Then again, the longer they wait to actually write up these guidelines, we're permitted to see more humor like the recent Burning Life "cover up your penis" thread.

Metaverse Justice Watch? Pfft.

I'm waiting for the Metaverse Justice League. I want superheroes, not politicians. ;)

Seriously though, thanks for posting the transcript. A good read. :D

Not sure what to make of this just yet.

I care enough about SL to help foster those areas in line with my sense of kindness and peacefulness (see sig for examples). I'm about ready to truly hunker down with some real US$ behind some of this, but what has been happening the last few days - on both sides of this - are making me a touch nervous as well.

In theory, everything up to this thread had no major impact on what I am doing or will do. Why would it? Most of what I do here invloves US$, just in smaller quantities than others due to its (unfortunately) small focus.

But a Resident Congress, or more aptly something like the House of Lords? That is what they probably want, but I've seen nothing concrete - Yet. It gives me some measure of pause, regardless if I'm not likely to be affected - even protected more than most - by it.

I have nothing against any of those in the officer's list mentioned. I do wish them some measure of luck in trying this, but historically its just not worked out in SL. There's still too much of an Anarchical nature existing in this very cool place LL has here.

Much like the budding Internet.

Patiently waiting (again),

I see it more as a move to Fuedalism... or in this case Futilism.

No Siggy. I was laughing all the way to the kitchen for another cup of coffee.

Oh noes! Our first congress or House of Lords has internal conflicts!

If this isn't justice, I don't know WHAT is! That comment sounds completely fair and balanced to me. It is easily read and understanded by most English-speaking netizens of SL. I have no clue as to what you are alluding, Siggy, Kris and Nolan.

But just in case, could someone translate in a more easier and understandable wording?
