Vouching for people

Posted 09-27-2011 at 05:29 AM by Ariadne Korda

Is vouching for people silly / pointless, on a forum?

Yes, often, because the many people on some threads have absolutely no feel for the 'history' of the community they are posting in or watching so they have no reason to believe one person over another.

Also, some don't care anyway because they have their own agenda (fair enough), and some would be happy to discredit anyone if they don't agree with them, regardless of little things like 'facts' or the considered opinions...

RL can be a little tough going at times (no, this is not a whine - I am simply in a job where I am constantly fighting deadlines, keeping a home, travelling a lot) and sometimes it gets exhausting.

I lost my mother in January. My daughter's boyfriend has succeeded in turning her against her parents (looong story).

I cancelled my second, one-week holiday in five years this month because I have had more work than I've ever had in 30 years in my profession this last six months...

Way too long. Read at your peril. But I needed to say it. Comments moderated but unless it's downright odious, then fine.

I write reports on crime for a living, for a large part of my time.



This means I have a reasonable grasp of how national legislations differ, how extradition works, and also, usefully, have a relatively strong stomach when the topic involves victims of (man-made or natural) disasters or assassination techniques, etc.

On the brink

Posted 11-01-2010 at 12:43 PM by Ariadne Korda

So I didn't get a weekend and won't get one next weekend either... I am off on my work travels again, this time to Qatar.

And my hotel has no alcohol. I have, of course, Googled to see which hotels DO because a glass of wine after long days there is, y'know, important.

So get to the point, woman. Big changes happened in my SL and more ahead.

Yes, I still enjoy it. Yes, I have great friends and love building.

But I'm also sick of many things, and...

Not my week and a massive rant

Tags hunts , rant

OK, so I took my LM-giver script out of all my stuff.

Right now, I really am trying hard to get my place known because I think I've improved.

Many thanks to SLU people who despite my stubbornness and wailing gave me GOOD advice, btw. Really. I'm grateful.

And then there was this House and Garden hunt announced. And I am utterly and totally pissed off about it. I signed up right away (I have mixed feelings about hunts but hey, advertising. Visiting card...
