    What is your earliest memory of Second Life?

    I had read an article about Tringo and the idea of a game that could be used to make a game was interesting. But instead of learning scripting, I volunteered to take over a group, Bisexuals in Second Life, and spent the next years enjoying myself being sociable. When my health started to go...

    Do You Still Care About Second Life?

    I’m rediscovering the joy of sailing and finally finding new places where I can rez a little boat. It’s very relaxing.

    Hacking from within SL?

    This person never uses the interwebs and SL is to blame? Any website sees your IP address, who knows where she's been. what is my ip address - Google Search Probably she has a malware infested computer and has developed a false sense of pride that asking for help with it would be humiliating...

    Government shutdowns

    I can confirm this is the case in Arizona. I still get a very small amount in SNAP, which is typical for someone on SSDI. I logged in and February will come in early. If it goes away, it's only fifteen bucks so I'd be okay. I'm alarmed for people who are in the situation I was in last year -...

    Democratic Party Presidential Candidates for 2020

    This just isn’t true, and ignores how hard it’s been to even achieve the partial tolerance that exists now. I am not asking the Dems to become an atheist party. I said a two party system cannot adequately represent a large number of Americans. Positions that are standard on the Left in most...

    #JAILTOTHECHIEF- Shit Just Got Real

    This makes me angry beyond my ability to express. I place it on McConnell’s head. Of course the RWNJs will blame the Dems. It’s too generous to call the right wing crazy. This is a civil war waged by cowards and led by traitors.

    Democratic Party Presidential Candidates for 2020

    The existing non-discrimination provisions only represent a portion of the people impacted by traditional religions. They are carved out, specific exceptions that were won at great personal and community cost and after years of effort. These exceptions in no way cover the whole of: LGBTO...

    Democratic Party Presidential Candidates for 2020

    Freedom of/from religion is a given, but doesn’t solve the problems with religion from a platform, rather than a legal, perspective. If we weigh all religious perspectives equally from a platform perspective, we’re giving cover to homophobia and traditional sexism. This isn’t just an issue for...

    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    This would be enough to make a class action lawsuit here, (IANAL). The closest thing we have to this is condo ownership and it’s not a model we apply to housing for poor people. I just can’t help but feel these folks have a claim against somebody. If I thought I was buying in a place where I’d...

    This Facebook comment thread from Dallas Goldtooth’s feed is probably an example of how Gabbard is perceived on the far Left. It’s quite possible she’s going to be hindered by the perception she still has far Right religious preferences, even if she’s grown out of them by now. At some point...

    #JAILTOTHECHIEF- Shit Just Got Real

    I don't know if I'll ever be able to understand this part of their psyche. It is like burning down a house while you're in it, just because someone else is also in it. These people have such a shaky grasp of reality by now - after so much programming - i'm done with trying to reach them. It...

    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    Do they have the makings of what would here be a class-action lawsuit? How can the residents be charged for a decision they didn't make?
