Here is a Serious Question which involves Kids exposed to Adult/Mature Content on the internet, and is this legal?
As we all know most Adult 18+ Websites, or most that i see have an 18+ Warning on them which explains the adult content and says if you are under the age of 18+ to leave, and redirects to google.com or something, and even registering with one of these sites you require to provide a Credit Card, Real Life Information at least your name, and such.
Linden Lab on the other hand does not, since Linden Lab merged the Teen Grid with the adult grid I noticed while playing Second Life a month or two ago they made a serious change which can effect everyone who plays this game.
You are no longer Required to provide any type of Real Life ID to age verify, this means that as Second Life has Adult 18+ Rated Areas your kids could be being exposed to adult, and mature conduct just by using this service, without any warning, now I agree that parents should watch their kids, and Teens should know better, but this isn't always the case.
So Linden Lab has changed the following.
1. You do not have to provide any RL information when you sign up for an account, not even your name.
2. You do not have to Put your Real Age, and you can still age verify without any ID.
3. You do not have to Register with any Real Email, they send no verification email, this means anyone can register an alternate account under your email address, this means someone could register under an email, and grief pretending to be the actual user, and Linden Lab could ban all accounts registered to that email account, usually temporary if you appeal it and contact them, but even they made the contacting process harder when you get banned to appeal it, or terminated, This can be abused by Griefers.
4. You can still register as many accounts as you want by using Proxies/VPN services, and an illegal cheat client to spoof your IP/Mac, and not get caught, so basically you can go crash 5 simulators in SL get banned, and they can't trace it back to your main account, although it is best to always swap your Router, or change your gateway/modem just incase, and route through two VPN/proxies to be extra safe when griefing.
What is Linden Lab doing, I honestly have no idea, I mean I have been a user of SL for 3 years now, a little more than that, been griefed by many residents, been harassed by the Owner of Gemin Industries, Skills Hak who was a creator of Emerald, accused of being a CopyBotter by him some of his friends, Harassed by Zfire Xue, and many other residents in some RP sims which were all breaking the SL Terms OF Service by stealing from our content developers in this game.
Linden Lab has just made it easier for Griefers & Trolls to grief in this game.
I Mean I myself have a lot of 16 year old friends in this game, but I also do adult RP sometimes, and now I can't know exactly who is actually an adult, and I don't want to be caught by Chris Hansen doing something illegal, nor will I be held responsible for such as it is Linden Lab's fault for this.
I also Called Linden Lab and confirmed they require NO Real Life ID to Age Verify, it was a change, not a bug, or exploit so they told me.
I am quite sure this has been abused many times already, and the only way for a fix is if Linden Lab revokes all Age Verification from Second Life prior to this change they made with age verification, and requires RL ID to age verify.
