The Case For Last Names

Not too long ago there was a fundamental and wide-ranging shift in the Chi of Second Life Residents. This change in the very essence that makes us who we are (and by “us” I mean all of us that use and live in Second Life) was brought about by the removal of the Last Name option when registering for a new Avatar account.

(But then again, in all fairness, if we catch them being merchants then we tend to get all bent that they’re using Alts to make unfair profits … so .. *shrugs*) Anyway, today’s post is about a new product coming out soon that will plug one of the more annoying “Holes” in the features offered by the SL Marketplace: Customer Redelivery of Copyable Products.
