Double Standards

Everyone knows the whole JLU thing that was going on, well, it kinda is still going on but it's quietened down now.  The Second Life Universe Forums ( http://www.sluniverse.com ) was where it started.

Reports of the JLU mass datacollecting, reports of Kal-El (the leader of JLU) calling someone's work to inform the boss that one of their employers was a greifer in a virtual world, masses and masses of leaked Brainiac Wiki which has personal info on a long list of greifers and persons of note in the SL community.

The outrage that spilled out in the SL Universe forums carried on in-world, but it died off, cause SLU has one big problem, its full of jack-asses who shoot themselves and everyone else in the foot...like this post...

Take a look att he folks who "like" or "agree" with what one of SLU's freequent posters have done.  Now take a look at all the folks who are "outraged" at what the JLU have done...yeah, its basically the same folks.

What Joshua done makes the JLU look like a kindergarden playpen in comparison, and ultimatley what Joshua has done is wash away ANY legitimacy, ANY credence, and ANY support that the SLU crusade against JLU had.

The JLU might be doing a lot of borderline grey area stuff, might be invading peoples privacy but at least they try and keep it locked behind a wiki, which ultimatley gets hacked every year.  However what they dont do is go onto a public internet forum and then spill as much private info about someone to the baying hoardes of sheep wanting blood cause the JLU thing has ran its course....double standards rule in SL Universe.

I've also cancelled my subscription to SLU, screw paying to subscribe to a forum where some nut job can call ya up in real life if he don't like ya.

As for the JLU, before Josh shot everyones foot with a double barrel shotgun, I was on the same line of thinking as Des Shang, opposed to what the JLU are doing, but not to the extent of bawling and shouting about it.  After what Josh pulled though and after seeing the FULL effect of what Prokofy Neva had coined the "SLU Sharia Court", i can't help but think if some, or all of those leaked wiki posts have been altered in some way, or tampered with.  I'm back on the fence on this, the JLU can basically do what they want, well, they do that anyway.  The point is the core of any hope of Linden Lab even doing a partial investigation into the Justice League has now dried up totally, its only a matter of time before someone send Rod Humble (CEO of LL) a link to that post Josh makes, and any credence or weight behind what the forum posters of SLU have made will mean absolutely nothing.

  1. When that thread started up at first I was glad because it pulled that drama out of the JLU discussion. I posted maybe once or twice to it and then saw it forming a lynch mob and the direction it was going and backed out of it completely. But I agree they are basically doing exactly what they were angry at the JLU for doing.

    In the end I don't think LL is going to do much to the JLU for what they've done in the past. Mainly due to them handling what were actual problems a few years back. However after this blow up they may be watching their current actions with a bit more of a critical eye.
