To PG or Not PG

That is the question. Sometimes I wonder what the point of PG land is. This struck me recently when I was pondering whether to AR a gentleman’s club in a PG sim. I’m not generally a tell-tale twit but I put in my notecards on PG land “No adult sales please, this is a PG sim”.

Now this parcel was right next to my parcel, it was only whilst I was pondering that I realised that the club in question wasn’t on the same sim and was indeed in an adult sim.

It’s a jump to the left
then a step to the right

Age Verficiation Goes Grid Wide

I’m reporting to you live from a land bot meeting. All I’m saying about that is Captcha. Sarah Nerd will fill you in with the broader details… apparently they are now proposing a bot that can do unimaginable things to females!

You Have No Useful Privacy

The new search. My big fear is spam. All the useful information is available to spammers, my name, my avatar key. Free accounts available. I play world of warcraft when I have time. If you post on the forums, you’ll get spammed.

So why isn’t this a problem with SL? Well with SL you need to sign in to the forums to use them, this makes it a pain for those who want to collate names and spam people, until now that is.

The new search provides all the information spammers need. Free accounts mean they can sign up and have no worries and most ridiculous of all, if you opt out of profile search, any information that spammers need is readily available, any information that residents need … well that’s not available.
