In this comic, Nylon Pinkney points out that the new version of Last Names Linden Lab is now offering is basically about asking too much for too little. #TLDR

Seriously, the offer needs a rethink.


TO camilia fid3lis nee Patchouli Woollahra:
and still people do buy, and will buy and profit will be made accordingly! And the more the fuss about high price, the better, since word gets spread out! Welcome to internet marketing 101 - the more they talk the better! :)


... or buy a commissioned piece from Nylon?

So user

Cheap my ass! It's fucking BS!!

Someone Else

Names was something that we used to have for free. It was taken away in a bone-headed maneuver, then returned a decade later for an outrageous fee during a pandemic and global economic crisis.

It took these morons how long to figure out how to undo their mess?

I swear, Linden apologists are really something.

It would have come back now pandemic or not. Everyone that keeps going on about the timing of it and how it's such a terrible thing, should consider if something that doesn't affect anyone in the real world, like deliveries and shop workers and medical staff that do have to carry on working in this pandemic have to, really needs to be delayed.


I think the answer is "yes". Real people need to be considered in a virtual world and when millions and millions of people are in crisis, they need to be considered by those who aren't. Isn't that part of this quarantine lesson?

It's like a teaspoon of price gouging mixed in a cup of all about me. It's one thing to play a self-absorbed character in a virtual world, but it's another thing to actually be one in the real world these days.
