so, a single griefer can waltz up, post something vile, and poof, that money never goes to the charity?

What's stopping the more morally ambiguous SCD writers from submitting a nasty secret themselves?

They get hits from this ever so generous blog post, continue to get the hits on Sunday and will then use this as an excuse as to why they won't stop SL Secrets and won't accept responsibility.

It's already too late. The bet's already been lost as of the 18th.

The only time I ever read those secrets pages is in the many times Hamlet chooses to write about them.

If Hamlet didn't write about them, they'd probably dwindle down to a rather small user base.

I rarely comment, but this post is sending out a very bad message and spreading the damage making it even more difficult for us who devote so much time to building our communities. I would say delete this post immediately, but the damage of advertising negativity has already been done. The "secrets" website (something I had heard about for the first time today) is not a benefit to the industry when it invites anyone to comment on rumors and exploits. In my opinion, this isn't news worth posting.

Don't worry. Dancien will think up something to post.

I would really appreciate it if Hamlet would stop giving it publicity...

Its the kind of negativity the SL community doesn't need. There are plenty of such places in the SL community where people just circle around in negative vibes and have no substance. None of them need to be promoted.

It will fail miserably because the ENTIRE purpose of SL secrets is to create drama. I've noticed a pattern over the last 6-8 months, though. It seems that 1 or two persons are "targeted" based on some real or imagined plurk incident and several of the "secrets" are very transparent and aimed directly at that person. I think the SCD writers are not only in on who is being targeted, but select the secrets to publish based on that.

SL Secret is just like Crimes Against Convention: a bunch of attention-seeking, gossipy drama whores.
