Posting here because I and a lot of other SLU'ers will be affected by this.

On a personal note; "Lord willing and the creek don't rise" I won't lose my place. But starting in April I'll have zilch left after bills, rent and food. My RL best friend and I are talking over plans in the event that she loses her place, tho. And we will be among the lucky ones (for a short while, at least); most poor/disabled folks will be completely screwed if this goes on for very long..

Folks think cooler heads will eventually prevail; I don't.

Should we start a fund in case a SLU'er needs help with rent or food while this is going on? We've come together to help SLU'ers out in the past..... I'm not wealthy, but considering how much I have wasted in SL over the years - if I can't afford the odd $20 or so to help out a friend, I'd be a pretty sorry person.
I'd be down with this. Shit, let's call it the "Fuck Trump Fund", because this shit is all because this orange manbaby got baited by the people on TV. :/
