Gambling Returned To Second Life!. Oh wait its gone again! Too Bad.

Hey Viewers, As you know gambling was banned but recently some game developers created a gambling system where people were able to bet linden on a non skill based game. They did this via a loophole in the second life policy. The Lindens were aware of this type of gambling system and allowed it as it broke none of the rules stated in the TOS. However they recently just changed there minds removed all of these new systems.

Before they removed these gambling places i visited them and talked with some of the owners. I arrived at the Nugget Gaming System Casino which had many customers which was not suprising. I saw all these people throwing there Linden into these cash eating monsters so i decided to inform them that these machines were set at a 90% payout and it was impossible to beat them. However i was instantly kicked out by one of the owners who was very rude when i was being very polite with them. After having a heated conversation with them i told them i would contact Linden Labs about the legality of these machines. She laughed in my face stating that the Lindens have approved it and that it was 100% Legal.

The lindens sudden change of mind was a good decision i feel they should not allow people to exploit the TOS like that. However i do feel they should have done this in the first place. My personal opinion also is that Gambling is wrong as it has a addictive quality that can cause people to lose all there money.

Those of you who were fooled into buying some of these gaming systems need to seek a refund as soon as possible. If they decline giving you a refund then contact the lindens to see if they can help you at all but it doesnt look good.

Copybot Over-Exaggeration?

The new copybot has arrived into SL and everyone is stating that it will ruin the economy however is this true?. I decided to investigate this powerful tool for all the business owners out there to see if it really is a big threat.

- Finding Copybot the super secret tool

Copybot is easier to find now than it ever was because a griefer group have published it on there website and is allowing anyone to download it. This group also provides details on how not to get banned and how to create certain griefer weapons. So its not a secret tool anymore and anyone who thinks it is has never tried to find it.

- Do you need a degree in IT to use this amazing tool.

No the tool is easy to use now than copybot 1 as it has a great new interface which any noob could use. Its very easy to control with simple commands but comes with no instructions. This is what people feared as now every noob could come to your land and steal everything you own.

- Is it as powerful as people say it is?

No, It seems to be useless as nobody buys a object thats not scripted and the lindens ban anybody who they think is a copybotter instantly even if they are just a random noob who has been reported for copybotting. The lindens are ban crazy and are banning people even if they are suspected to be using copybot. The only people who would get away with using this tool is people who are age verified but you shouldnt be scared of these people because since they are age verified they wont try to use copybot as you could very easily sue them and take off them 3 times the amount of profit they made from selling your products. So some people may say its a super powerful tool but i say its a useless tool that holds no threat to the economy. As long as the scripts remain safe our products remain safe.

I dont see why people are worrying because if someone copies your products you can get them banned via the lindens very easily and if you cant get them banned then DMCA them or sue them because the products you create in Second Life are protected by real life laws.
