Only the Facts.....where are they?

Our "Friends" at Linden Lab have posted another blog posting, reminding the OpenSpace Community that they have until January 5th to make up their minds on the conversion.

An interesting quote from the post is this:

"and many thoughtful conversations with the community"

Before we get started lets take a look at the definition for "Conversations":

"informal interchange of thoughts, information, etc., by spoken words; oral communication between persons; talk; colloquy."

From we need to now look at what "Communication" would mean. once again we look up the deginition at

"to give or interchange thoughts, feelings, information, or the like, by writing, speaking, etc.: They communicate with each other every day."

Now that we have those definitions, let's take a close look at that quote by Jack Linden.

Jack Linden is trying to stretch the truth when he says that Linden Lab had many thoughtful conversations with the Community. The act of Conversing requires Communicating, which means as we see, the EXCHANGE of ideas, not just asking people for their feedback and then walk away and refuse to listen to the feedback and act upon it. Instead our friends at Linden Lab decided to blame the problems the OpenSpace SIMs were having on those that own OpenSpace SIMs; their paying customers!

The Failure of Linden Lab to Communicate with the OpenSpace Community has led to a flood of those in the OpenSpace Community to abandon their SIMs. The rumor is, and yes even a friend at Linden Lab chimed in, that 2000 SIMs were abandoned in November and that number has already been reached for the month of December. A friend of mine, who was a large OpenSpace SIM customer, did some math and just the 2000 abandoned SIMs in November would have made Linden Lab $1,000,000.00 a month. It's interesting to note that in this time of Economic Downturn, that Linden Lab can give up such a large revenue producer. I guess Linden Lab really doesn't need or want the Second Life Community.

Once again I must say that Linden Lab is working hard to destroy the world of Second Life. This blog posting today only goes to hurt the OpenSpace Community; not to try to heal it.

Thanks Philip, once again you and your employees are working hard to do the WRONG thing!
