So everyone is up in arms about TPV policy. I read over the changes and all I can think is "Why are devs pissed off about this?" I mean, even fucking LGG is complying with it, and wasn't he the dude that made CryoLyfe or whatever? This all just seems so backwards. Boy Lane is no longer making Coolviewer or whatever her spiel is and it makes no sense. Same with Imprudence devs. I know I know, the liability thing is stupid, but doesn't LL do that anyway? I mean, haven't they always told you to piss off if you have a problem while using a TPV? It just seems like more emocutter faggotry. The TPV policy doesn't even seem like they have changed anything. I've always been an Emerald and Kirsten user, so I am unaffected, but there was a time when I used Cool Viewer, and I had actually stopped when Boy Lane was talking (ranting) about Ursula policy (Zindra Beta for any n00bs reading)and I just had a big wtf moment. It was like people were freaking out over nothing again. Pre-Ursula life was the same for me as it is Post-Zindra. I don't get it. I don't get why people flip the fuck out every time theres a policy change, because in the end, nothing ever changes. Camping is gone: oh noes, how many people still camp? I remember trying to camp once and they were all maxed out with bots. Ageplay is gone oh noes: really? Do we actually have to be upset about this? Sure, I get the whole two consenting adults thing, but depending where you life just pretending to make pixelsex with a kid is illegal, so if nothing else is the legal liability enough to not be upset by this? Gambling is gone: who cares? Gambling can be dangerous when real life currency is involved. If you want to gamble, go to like pogo games or something. I just don't see a problem with most of this stuff. At all. The only thing I'm disgruntled about is Viewer 2.0, but as long as they allow some sort of alternate viewer for those of us who prefer the old skoo style, then who cares? I mean, I'm one of those people who fully believe once you go Emerald you never go back, because I went insane trying to use vanilla 1.23 on a friends computer after getting used to Emerald. I just do not see what the big deal is.
tl;dr I don't care and neither should any of you. SL is not Fox News. Getting upset over stupid shit should never be cool.
