I have experienced an issue with Linden Lab which may, or may not piss people off, but is sure is funny.
It has been 4 months since the Removal of ZF Red Zone from Second Life, and like 4 months since LL Banned him after he refused to remove the system from the grid, and had it removed many times, and then the messages posted on YouTube about his company possibly compromise users SL passwords due to mistyped passwords logged from his site & such.
It is also rumroed that ZFire, Released his source code public, but it is said on a few blogs I read on google search that ZFire got his scripts from a leaked/stolen copy of Skills Hak's CDS which is supposed to be another CopyBot detector, but is easily bypassed by almost any CopyBot by Disabling your Media, and auto play in SL.
Skills Hak is a well known person who owns a company called Gemni Industries, or Insilico, but he has been caught himself in groups with CopyBotters, aka Jcool410, Lonely Bluebird, and I am quite sure other people who worked with the Onyx Project, along with other illegal projects such as Data Mining & Geo Locating Residents, which was known as the Emerald Developers, which the last wrong thing I know of that they did was use peoples computers to DDOS another CopyBotters site for personal use.
Okay, So here is the funny thing, After 4 months, and long Debates about both Skills Hak, and Zfire Xue's Red Zone which I debate against Zfire when I started to see signs of abuse from his system, and he even admit to me he manually add my account to the ban network, and made accusations against my account, which I have the evidence saved on an external drive.
Anyways to get to the good part, I recently made a post on the Second Life Forums, and the post after maybe a day or two was quickly moved to a moderator area, and not viewable by anyone, this explained everything about the CDS system, and abuse which Skills Hak is doing to many residents, without any evidence. Skills Hak, is also a LIB SL code user, as well as other people he knows, and anyone who uses a LibSL client for backup purposes is obviously a CopyBot by Skills Hak's system, so we basically have Skills Hak, which I have found the logs of on Google of the code being stolen and used by Zfire to Data Mine, Detect alts, and all this stuff, but just because the information isn't released to the public, Skills Hak as a resident is allowed to do what he pleases, and sell/market a anti theft system, which can defame many avatars not limited to myself, cause Harassment, Grief, and harm to people, or possibly compromise a users security, or privacy, while it can't be proven, we already know that the CDS system uses HTTP requests, through media, and that is enough to prove that his system communicates without a users knowledge to send Data from their computers to his stream, while that Data May only be SL information, or client name, it is still not asking consent, and he could be logging IP, or geo located residents without consent, which is a privacy concern.
So here is the Serious Question, of why Linden Lab allows this type of crap from a person simply because they pay for 5 regions in Second Life, and run a business, to me it looks like LL is trying to cover up all evidence that points this out on SL Forums, as my post has, and was not the only one to go missing, or moved to private moderator area's. There have been other posts including posts in the past made viewable only to those who are registered members to the Service in attempt to cover up any Negative Effects on SL, Lucky for me I also posted copies of my posts outside SL forums on sites they don't control so they will appear on the google search engine.
Here is the LOG I found where Skills Hak talks about Zfire stealing his code, and turning it into something Malicious, yet all evidence points to the fact he could be doing the same thing, but LL takes no actions other than cover up.
Yep it looks like Linden Lab tries to cover up their stuff just like other games corrupted GM's have in the past.
Let's not forget that there are now kids under the age of 18 in Second Life, and they can easily be exposed to any, all mature content, as well as possibly spyware, which can possibly track where they live in Real Life, or close to it just as the Cellphone trackers, and FaceBook, if you don't watch what you do.
While users have the right to restrict access from certain members, to their Estate, or Lands this goes beyond that, and should not be allowed.
Yes I have also run into many Theft group supporters in SL, and many people trying to COYA, but have exposed such personal, and sooner or later they will be gone just like Emerald was, but they are not enjoying their SL experience like they once did and I am glad for that, as for all the good RP sims, and places I knew most of them in SL don't exist anymore, and those that do have down sized a lot compared to when I have been here, and this happend since CDS was first released, and then the Red Zone incident.
As for griefing, there have been no improvents to fix such, and the name changes, so that all residents making a new account have the last name of Resident are not good, no one likes it, and half the people I know hate Viewer 2.
So the big question is:
Who is really in control of Linden Lab, and what are they doing for its residents, what are they really doing about systems like this which ruin the enjoyment of SL for others, many I know, and what right does Skills Hak, have to say what viewer I can, or can't be on isn't this Linden Lab's decision, or choice of what they want to block out, not the residents to spy on, yet it seems they allow defame of individuals/groups, and harassment, all by one person, and his friends/groups.
And if Linden Lab actually moved this thread to a Moderator Section for review, why wouldn't they send an email, or notice to my account, yet alone if it was moved into moderator section for a reason why does it take them over 1 year to remove a system like this from our grid, which is advertised false, easily bypassed, and brings many problems to its SL residents.
