Darrius Gothly, in his post Lies, Liars and Corporate Fraud – Linden Lab, has heard that Brodesky Linden, the guy who basically is in charge of getting Marketplace to work (after they broke it) is to be sacked because he lives in the wrong state, rather than because of his big mouth. Full report here on theDGP4SL Blog.
Amazing that such heightened penny-pinching is operational at the Lab, and, if it is, could be the cause of a lot of anger and turmoil.
However, the BIG news, and the reason Darrius is furious, is that the Boys have decided to shoot the small businesses in the head. Well, that might be a bit dramatic, but...here's how it goes...
Search... if you own a sim you stand a chance of a good listing in search...
If you own a smaller parcel... you don't stand a snowball in hell's chance of getting near the top of the list.
In a very typical lack of transparency, Jack Linden refused to say how the maths on the search system worked, but no-one was deceived. I must say his attitude stinks. He comes across as a weasel, well, actually weasels are quite cute, so let's say he comes across as a shit.
The (false) logic is that businesses will all upgrade to a sim...lol. The small businesses are not something LL is gonna worry about.
Now, all I can say to small businesses is....MOVE TO INWORLDZ!! tomorrow.
