-1L$ Balance – Are ‘keep up to date’ groups using members to covertly fund merchant advertising?

-1$L… Logged into some alts that get little use recently, and found this as my balance on the both of them. Account Manager page – nothing. Only goes back a month. The thing ought to show the greater of the last month or the last 30 entries…

Look through my groups, notice something.

A lot of purely social groups, or merchant advertiser groups – the ones that spam you into submission to get you to join… are now setting regular customers as ‘pay into and out of group liabilities.’ So apparently my funds on those alts got drained to pay for their search listings, land fees, and adverts. Good thing I likely had less than 10L on them each…

But its a cautionary tale: Should we leave all the groups we’re in if we don’t have strong reasons to trust who’s running them (if they’re owned by strangers)? Is it time to get out of customer groups…

It would be nice if the bottom rank of groups could not have the ‘pay liabilities and receive group dividends’ option checked, and if being added to another rank in a group required a second permissions acceptance check.

As it stands… there’s some folks out there right now with some pretty shady ethics…

Shop at Irie Vibes

Quicky cause its late for me, bed time. 🙂

Just set up a shop at Irie Vibes, the popular Reggae club:

Noted it on my SL FEED as well.

Looks like I didn’t get the best screenshot there. I’ll have to make a better one and edit this. 🙂

This is the first time I’ve done rental spots in SL, since coming to SL originally in 2006. Always owned land, never used malls, not even club malls, before now. But it seemed like a good idea for exposure.

They used to have signs at Irie Vibes talking about Reggae and Rastafarians – but no more. I’m going to have to make some and put them up in my shop here and on my own land… 🙂
