A public service announcement

For the record, I'm Tateru Nino. I'm a professional writer and I write about all sorts of stuff, including Second Life and Linden Lab.

Now, here's the important bit: No, I don't run Second Life. No, I don't run Linden Lab either. Nor do I work for them. No, I am not the right person to talk to insofar as demanding that I change a Second Life policy, or fixing a Second Life bug.

No, I can't unban your account. No, I can't ban someone else's account for you, even -- and I want to make this absolutely clear -- even if he touched your dolly.

Astonishingly, I also can't fix any billing issues you have or cancel your account or open a new one for you, or sell you an island ... so please stop sending me your names, addresses, credit-card information, and Second Life user names and passwords.

Seriously, people. Don't send me that stuff. Please stop sending me that stuff. The only thing I can do with that would be to steal your identity and run up your credit-card bill -- and I'm not going to do that. (Actually, come to think of it, that would be plenty of info to report your card as stolen, but I'm not going to do that either)

The people you want to talk to are called Linden Lab, and you can contact them via their support page (there's telephone numbers there too).

That this post even becomes necessary gives you some idea how far out of hand it has been.

  2. Ha. I'm amazed people make this mistake. You're far to logical to be affiliated with Linden Lab. ;)

  7. Hopefully this will not trigger the Barbie World Curse. It's worse than Macbeth.

  9. Why are you wasting time writing here when you should be FIXING THE GRID?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oops! The grid! I'll, uh... I'll get right on that.

  11. I'd think it'd be obvious that you don't run LL or the Grid, Tateru. For one thing, if you did, the bugs would be FIXED, and the policies would actually MAKE SENSE. Horror! Quelle catastrophe! :-)

  12. "O Tateru, who art in The Skybox, please lift the ban on my account. I promise to stop griefing the furries if I can just log in again. Amen."

  13. Does that mean you can't restore my inventory? *pout*
