It only took them some months to copy the same mistakes as the old LEA. The open hive of HEA is already shut down for SaveMe Oh if Ultralight wants to play there. Forgotten is the support for the artworld SaveMe gave and back are the old restrictions.
Roxy Gellar must be the happiest person on the grid tonight. Some days ago she asked me the following:
Roxy Gellar: So the Question is, Ultra is performing at Hannington this weekend, are you banned?
SaveMe Oh: The Hannington people are not your kind of dictatorial style. Be like them and open the world to every one. You still have time to become a good person.
Roxy was right. I was wrong!
SaveMe Oh: Do you know why I am banned?
Hannington Xeltentat: Oh hello SaveMe. Yes, there is a concert on by Ultraviolet, and she won’t play if you are here. I’ll lift it as soon as it is over. Nothing personal.
SaveMe Oh: Do you approve that she is able to exclude me? Secondlife give her derender tools when she dont want to see me.
Hannington Xeltentat: I’m a bit busy now for in depth discussion, but basically, old chap, it is my house, and like your RL house or my RL house, you are welcome here any time, and I mean that, except when I am doing something else.
SaveMe Oh: And when I do a performance in your house and on a certain day I dont want Tansee there, will you ban her?
Hannington Xeltentat: I consider each individual case on its merits.
SaveMe Oh: And will you kill someone when a friend asks you to?
Hannington Xeltentat: Different question, irrelevent here
SaveMe Oh: Did you consider to ask Ultralight to play in her own house if she wanted an exclusive party?
Hannington Xeltentat: No, because it’s my house, and I decided.to have her play in my house.. This is a private sim, and you are welcome any time, as I said. Except that I am doing something else tonight.
SaveMe Oh: Is Ultralight an old friend of you?
Hannington Xeltentat: I have no friends in SL, old or new. I judge each case on its merits
SaveMe Oh: And what merits you found in this “case”?
Hannington Xeltentat: I am letting Ultraviolet play her concert. It’s very good.
SaveMe Oh: And how many people were on her requested banlist? Only me?
Hannington Xeltentat: Not her banlist, mine. You can’t be trusted.not to disrupt things. You only have yourself to blame
SaveMe Oh: And when Trump would ask you to ban a Mexican. Hitler ask you to ban a jew or the KKK ask you to ban an african?
Hannington Xeltentat: Not an applicable simile, at all, and an insult by you to all the oppressed minorities. Unworthy of you
SaveMe Oh: You think oppressed minorities have to stay polite against their opressors?
SaveMe Oh: Do they have to humble accept the verdict?
Hannington Xeltentat: You know the answer to that one, but in this case you are not an oppressed minority. You are the one, on occasion, oppressing. And no, I do not humbly accept your verdict. This is SL, and reference to to Hitler et al is overindulgent and offensive. You should be better than that.
SaveMe Oh: I am much better than that, thats why you should be the one who should do better. You should refuse to ban people at any time.
Hannington Xeltentat: I should do what I wish to do, no more, no less. And I do. No-one dictates anything to me. That, in essence, is true anarchy.
SaveMe Oh: Tansee and Ultralight dictated to you. You obey. It has nothing to do with your own will.
Hannington Xeltentat: I obey only myself, SaveMe. I make decisions based on each case, considered carefully.. And they are my decisions, for my reasons. I do not answer to anyone, and there is no need for me to. Buy your own island, then you can do that too.
SaveMe Oh: I will never buy an island to sit there as a judge who is welcome and who has to stay out. I prefer to trust people.
Hannington Xeltentat: I trust the people I trust, and I don’t trust the people I don’t trust. I have my island as my space, and I give a little bit of it to people who want to do something productive and creative. no more, no less.. And as I said, you are welcome any time, unless I am doing something else.
SaveMe Oh: It’s difficult to try to make something wrong look like right, isn’t it?
