As always, my blog is where I get to shoot from the hip if I choose to. This is going to be one of those straight-talking posts. Not a rant…hopefully, but my opinion on what I’m seeing more and more in Second Life. Over entitled, spoiled, whiny-ass, allegedly grown adults sucking the fun out of SL for everyone else! The age of entitlement is alive and well and living in Second Life it seems, and, has had a phenomenal ‘growth’ month. There have been several big events and anniversaries in Second Life over the last few weeks which have meant high demand for entry onto sims.
Second Life seems to have more than its fair share of ‘Veruca Salt’s’ who expect everything, are never happy and feel the solution is to share their frustration at not getting their demands with anyone who’ll listen…not just once…but over and over and over again like a stuck record.
Guess what? This is Second Life…you aren’t entitled to shit. Read the Terms of Service, about all you’re entitled to is to not be harassed. You’re not even entitled to log in – that can be taken away from you at any time by Linden Labs. Nowhere does it say ‘Hey precious princess, you are entitled to get on any full sim you want to whenever you want to and get lots of free stuff whenever you want.’ I can hear them now coming to that realisation and wailing ‘but, it’s not fair…I want! I want! I want’…you know, the sort of behaviour that would have had me figuratively slapping the shit out of my children when they were young…and these are grown adults apparently.
You know what’s not fair? Children born with diseases that kill them before they see a year old. Natural disasters that wipe out whole towns and villages. Children who are mutilated through FGM by the people that are supposed to love them the most. Famine…War…Death, Birth defects. Those are things that aren’t fair. You not being able to get on a sim is an inconvenience at the very most. Some of these people need to take that as a sign to use the cross at the top of their screens and go get some perspective.
About the Stuff:
Talking about anniversaries and in demand events, there’s still time to shop at 6 Republic which is celebrating it’s second anniversary in Second Life with the theme of European cities. This year fashion has been included in the event for the first time and I’m wearing the Fame Femme Italy dress from the gacha which includes several colours of the dress and 2 rare pattern version. There’s also matching shoes that I’m not wearing but I am using the travel bag that’s also available in the gacha set.
