Well, to me all this turbulence is totally impossible to understand.
For me there is no alternative to OSGrid... period.
I could not of said it better.
OsGrid is my home and will be as long as I'm aloud to be here. So many nice people have helped me establish myself in this great community. So many people contribute in some way or other to making it a better place. OsGrid lets you be all that you want and can be in this VW. It's a world where you can build dreams and activate them. It can be your time alone while creating, or it can be your time with others sharing wonderful moments. It can be whatever you want it to be.
I read some of the forums going on right now about all this "turbulence" and i'm just amazed at what people are saying. Some of us will form opinions on what is written and who wrote it. To be honest, some I have met and reading what you say makes me regret it. A lot of you I hope to never meet and if ever I have the displeasure of crossing path with you, I will just ignore you. A lot of you are not going to the source of what is being said, and you are being mislead. If you develop bad opinions about OsGrid without checking the real story, then you become responsible for whatever happens to you.
We all agree that behind the avatar is a real person ... right? Are we forgetting this??
In real, if I ever met someone over 20 years old talking to me like a 5 years old, what do you think my reaction would be? Either that person is very mentally challenged or that person is just a sicko. If that person is mentally challenged, then I guess my patience and understanding would kick in. But if that person is a sicko? What am I suppose to do? Maybe I should think ... ooOOoo this is ok because it is being done in VW. Give me a break.
To me, there is absolutely no place for a child avatar in VW, unlesss that is a real child behind the avatar, with it's real parents by it's side. I don't care what the reason is for role playing a child avatar. To me, that is just sick. If you are a child avatar having any kind of sexual relationship in VW, that is way past sick. I thought our society was dead against pedophiles of any kind. Is someone saying to me that it's ok to be THAT in OsGrid?
Since we are not suppose to forget that behind the avatar is a real person, why are some saying we should forget this when meeting some older person playing a child? Are you kidding me?
I for one, support Hiro wholeheartedly. I support his team. All that is being done lately is to make things better in OS. I support child avatars being banned from the OS Plazas.
Thank you Walter
I love OsGrid and I'm greateful someone is standing up for those of us that have positive things to say about our community.
