new to newsgroups but..

Jan 5, 2002, 7:13am
I just wanted to say.. EXCELLENT posts ! I cried reading the truth so well
put. These 3-D chats saved my emotional life during a year of chemo... and
if what they are doing today.. had been in place then.. I wouldn't have
been able to be there.. and as I had to go through all of the illness
physically alone.. I dread to think what would have become of me if not for
a place to go...
So.... I totally agree. (I am just too burnt on the subject to expound on
it now.. too upset and too hurt)

To the AW community:

It saddens me greatly to see Nova go. I was one of the lucky recipients of
the generosity of Wings.. Without her help and support I doubt I would have
been here long.. but thanks to her... I also purchased my own world.

Braendon isn't a huge world. It only goes to 40 in all directions.. but it
also costs me a fair bit of money.. at least it is a lot for me.

I love this place! I love Nova.. (my first build in AW is there) and, of
course, I love my own world and cry inside every time I have to face the
realities of the past few weeks. It breaks my heart to watch all this
unfold. Nevertheless, I must agree with Wings.. I cannot justify paying to
renew Braendon given the current situation.

Unfortunately, unlike Wings.. I cannot afford the new increase. I had just
renewed my citizenship before the 'big bang' (good term for this Wings) and
can be here in AW for another year ... but I don't know that I will... so
much has been lost now.. and there are so many hard feelings..

The actions of AW have broken my heart and dreams. I miss the tourists..
the life blood of any on line community is the NEW blood. This move kills
that IMHO. I also disapprove of the manner in which AW has acted. I know
they are a company.. but I also know that they are people that WERE a part
of this community.. until they betrayed us and acted more like a corporate
giant squashing insignificants than the visionaries I had fashioned them to

I am thoroughly disappointed with your choices AW, and even more disgusted
with the WAY you did all this. Threats.. booting users and universes even!
WE ARE AW..!!! You may have invented it.. but if no one stays you have
failed. You have showed us all a great disrespect and you are
systematically destroying yourselves as well.

Braendon will most likely follow suit with Nova.
With sincere sadness and regret... I cannot remain... not unless AW comes
to its senses and proposes a VIABLE alternative!

pass protected objects

Jan 11, 2002, 5:32pm
Are people aware that AW has pass protected all the new objects? I
discovered that they can't be used in my world... and I am VERY
disappointed! It is like the big kid on the block is taking his toys

No more sharing allowed I guess. :-((

Just another reason that I don't feel welcome here anymore by AW. Between
the prominent focus of threats about prosecution in AW for hacking...
(which we all knew anyway) to this... I am starting to feel like we are
viewed as crooks... until proven innocent...


pass protected objects

well.. then you open couch5a.rwx and couch7b.rwx.

and if you can... tell me how you did it.

Adressed to all the caretakers !

Seems this place is over populated with AW drones... hope you are having
fun... cuz the way things are going... you will be there alone with your
pro-company righteous flags flying... playing with yourselves.

The rest of us in the real world... will move on... because we know
exploitation when we see it. They don't need our money... but they would
love to have it and use us to acquire new interests.

and ya know what? When it is all over, you will discover.. AW doesn't and
won't care about all of you that waved their corporate flag either...

and while I am on the subject... who is 'WE'??? *We* all have not gone
over this! This is an open forum where all have a right to express their
opinions... Some of you speak as if once YOU have spoken - your words
become law.

It is not so. We are in a free nation here... and have EVERY right to
peaceful protest...

and you say it doesn't work... have you never heard of Martin L. King?

It does work.

My world is red.... and I am checking out alternatives.

Oh.. and one more thing... perhaps a select group that post here work for
AW? I have heard rumors to that effect... don't know if it is true.. but
true or no... you aren't making any brownie points for your nasty attitudes
to the rest of us that post here. You know who you are... and you should
be ashamed of yourselves for the disrespectful way you have repeatedly
addressed people here.

FYI folks.. I found this quite interesting... Aine did email Chris.. in
our discussion group.. asking what he felt was false in her original letter
and asking why he had answered in this NG rather than in our discussion
group where her original letter was posted... This was SW Chris'

IMHO.. Chris.. it would appear that there is a need for you to pick an
opinion and stick to it.

Get over it.

Feb 23, 2002, 8:31pm
Why would someone do that? and with reference to the exact same issue? If
it were me.. and that were true.. I would be very interested to find out
who... and put a stop to it.. cuz the contradictions there are pretty
clear.. and discrediting...

Yea? Well why don't you two take your own advise and get over it?!
Ever hear of freedom of speech? Ever think perhaps the lady was just being
polite and leaving a message? I am so tired of you mud slinging little
petty nit-pickers I could scream! GET A LIFE!

Sorry to say that 'Braendon' will have to close on April 28th. Just can't
afford everything anymore and without the $$ to pay for tourists to have
access.. it is pretty dead in there... :-(
