Its been pointed out over in the 'official' that a large number of users are going to be completely clueless as to WTF its all about - always a risk ofc. Streisand effect is it called? Or something similar. Still, good to see some response,
One thing though. Creators yeah can see them raising a fuss and rightly so but we have 'community leaders' now? So exactly who are they?


The people who had this meeting are being very public about it on Facebook.


They need to look into nepotism by some in management towards some SL creators and merchants too. And investigate the hostile work environment created for certain SL creators and merchants. Those that were not liked by certain Lindens, have really suffered. This is just one example of a great contributing resident, there are many more, especially among the home and garden creators. https://youtu.be/lHEYnstJ8TI?si=R5eYKQ8yeUaRHYWm

No surprises here.

The culture of Silicon Valley is probably only slightly better than in academia.

I'm not sure I'd classify "...suggest some accusations are unfounded.." as radio silence.

Beyond the fallout from the legal side of this is the other question of how to heal the considerable damage caused by the bad feelings this incident generates. IMO this isn't one of SL great strengths.


I don't understand the need for an investigation. you own the dang servers. They know exactly what happened, they've likely known it for a decade.
