Well I knew these boots were driving me crazy, but I had no idea just how much they were getting under everyone else's skin too. Impressively, some of you even knew exactly what boots I was talking about from reading the headline alone. I've heard so many "UGH ME TOO" and "OMG I KNOW, RIGHT?" responses since I posted the article, I think most of us can probably agree that something about how the Second Life Marketplace favors listings is either broken... Or maybe working a little too well?
So here's what I want to know: What would you do differently? What would you change about the SL Marketplace to ensure higher listing turnover and less undying, ever-present nightmare boots? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
