Mandel Solano: I heard LEA will soon be closed, by Linden Lab
Blackbox Blindside: yes, I read it here too: https://savemeoh.wordpress.com/2019/07/17/declaration-regarding-the-defeat-of-lea-and-the-assumption-of-supreme-authority-by-saveme-oh/
Mandel Solano: they have already closed 2/3 of LEA
Blackbox Blindside: End of august its gone
Mandel Solano: no it’s the idiot SaveMe Oh
Jaicya Albright: this blog are misleading us this person wrote whatever she wants
Mandel Solano: Do not ever read something from SaveMe Oh and think all the text is true
Blackbox Blindside: why the committee decide to drown the place? Seems a lost opportunity not to ask the members. Although they never asked much of the members. They didnt ask me if I agree with this shut down
I think this should be a group decission, not by some committee members. Strange construction anyway.
Josef K: The LEA Committee violated the Bylaws on several occasions. According to the Bylaws committee members could serve two terms. Most of the committee forgot to leave after they served the two terms. Several exceeded that by several years. The Committee members treated LEA as their private property. I guess that lack of respect for the LEA Bylaws ended LEA.
Blackbox Blindside: Even ex members are on guard. I spotted Solo Mornington the other day, what a coincidence. They should have had election every 2 years
Josef K: Yes they should, but they didn’t
Blackbox Blindside: And now they pull out the plug for everyone using the sandbox
Josef K: All empires run by dictators are doomed to die … so also LEA
Blackbox Blindside: If it was not SaveMe Oh they would be in office for eternity. Pity she didn’t save LEA itself. In LEA 5 there is a new group who wants to save LEA, maybe join that
Mandel Solano: Many have used LEA 5 as a common sandbox, put out things not art at all and not deleted their unpacking things:) We all need to write to LL about this, but work as a admin on LEA is almost a full time job, I think there are rules
Dancoyote Antonelli: Rules about no littering, no adverts, no sales but with no team to enforce them, the rules are moot
Blackbox Blindside: Weren’t you once in the committee? DanCoyote?
Dancoyote Antonelli: Yes I was one of the original members with Bryn, Werner, Dekka and others.
Blackbox Blindside: So what would you advise? Were you elected in those days?
Dancoyote Antonelli: I was appointed by LL
Blackbox Blindside: How they found you?And on what terms?
Dancoyote Antonelli: I was a little famous back then
Blackbox Blindside: And why they kicked you out?
Dancoyote Antonelli: I retired, it is hard work and I did my time. 4 years is long enough to work for free.
Blackbox Blindside: according to the bylaws you can only stay 2 years
Josef K: 5.1.5 Term for Committee Members shall be 2 years (commencing with the ratification of these bylaws).
5.1.6 Committee Members may serve up to 2 terms.
Dancoyote Antonelli: I helped make the bylaws
Blackbox Blindside: He took 4 years to make them
Dancoyote Antonelli: yes!
Blackbox Blindside: Very smart
Dancoyote Antonelli: We added them as we discovered a need and THAT was a vote
Blackbox Blindside: And why it went wrong after?
Dancoyote Antonelli: Non artists took over
Mandel Solano: I think the comity is tired of LEA
Blackbox Blindside: Can you name a few non-artists?
Dancoyote Antonelli: I am not naming any names, not looking back, look forward: and step up and help, join the group, and join the conversation
Blackbox Blindside: Not any artist in the committee now?
Dancoyote Antonelli: The committee right now has quit
Josef K: LEA was a great idea once. But in the later years the Committee acted as if there was no Bylaws. No new members was elected and the remaining members didn’t leave after they served 2 terms. There was a huge lack of democracy in LEA.
Dancoyote Antonelli: after long service with little reward and respect. I don’t blame them. As I said it is hard work. Pattie, Joanna etc. are good people. Dedicated and sincere, honest
Mandel Solano: And all the attacks by SaveMe Oh have been tiresome
Blackbox Blindside: When you cant do the job you can retire, as you said…
Dancoyote Antonelli: SaveMe Oh does not matter
Blackbox Blindside: She is banned for years, that cannot be the problem
Mandel Solano: And now people who have not built things themselves put out SaveMe Oh things here.
Blackbox Blindside: You can even kiss SaveMe Oh, Mandel, there is a kissing booth
Mandel Solano: Are you one of his many alts?
Blackbox Blindside: I thought you were her alt
Dusty Canning: SaveMe Oh is nothing but a shit-stirrer with no talent and she should be totally ignored. Making trouble is all she is good at – please ignore her!
Dancoyote Antonelli: yeps. Let’s start right away
Blackbox Blindside: You have to admit she is only one able to stir things up, not bad in arts. I am a fan, please don’t kill me.
Jaicya Albright: what! Blackbox can’t you forget her. it seems she’s most important to you. you must be the alt then
Blackbox Blindside: In love with myself???? no!
Josef K: I am a SaveMe Oh fan too. I have worked with her on several occasions back when I had a gallery. And stirring up is what art must do. If not it’s just kitsch.
Mandel Solano: it’s not art to bully other people in SL
Blackbox Blindside: There is a difference to tell the truth and bully. And can’t we all mute people?
Josef K: Well, that’s what the DADA movement did in the beginning of last century. And DADA is the mother of all good art today. SaveMe is the DADA of our time
Blackbox Blindside: Josef be careful, before you know its on her blog, stirring more shit
Josef K: Hahaha … I love reading her blog. It always makes me laugh. It’s like reading The Emperor’s New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen. SaveMe reveals all the bogus in the SL art world
Blackbox Blindside: Maybe they should ask her as LEA’s next bullshit detector!
Josef K: What a great idea
Mandel Solano: What sort of art are you making, yourself?
Blackbox Blindside: None, I am just an art lover
Mandel Solano: But then you should not put art from others at LEA5. Put it up on your own land.
Blackbox Blindside: When artists are banned we should show their work, especially when in a corrupt regime like here
Mandel Solano: and I think you do not understand the struggle to make art, as you do not make art
Blackbox Blindside: I dont have to understand the struggle, I am just an art lover
Mandel Solano: No you are not. You do not even know who SaveMe Oh is
Blackbox Blindside: Yes I do as I bought her work, I love it.
Mandel Solano: It does not make you an art lover, it just make you a spokesman for him.
Blackbox Blindside: Him?
Mandel Solano: I said you do not know who he is!
Blackbox Blindside: She is so cute, don’t tell me its a him
Mandel Solano: and what he have done
Blackbox Blindside: Mandel, please don’t destroy my wet dream
Mandel Solano: He dislike woman especially, it’s why he make a female avatar
Blackbox Blindside: I thought that was the objective of SL
Mandel Solano: To falsify everything?
Blackbox Blindside: Be whatever you want, didn’t know it was a crime. You also tell that to the rabbits and tinies? For me she remains a woman, very sexy
Mandel Solano: Bullying is very bad manner
Blackbox Blindside: Oops, I better don’t say sexy before I get a #metoo
Mandel Solano: go then fuck him but not here
Blackbox Blindside: Now that is very rude Mandel
