~~~Well folks, the good news is that not everyone out there commenting on VWs in general and SL in particular is a knuckle-draggin' tosser. Crap Mariner recently put up a link on his blog to the first in a series of articles by a gent named Randall Hand at Vizworld. I highly recommend you pop over to Crap's place at http://firstlife.isfullofcrap.com/2010/01/lets_give_randall_hand_a_hand.html to check out his short and to-the-point comment, and then proceed to follow the link posted there and go take a look at Mr. Hand's piece.
It's interesting--seems he was planning on doing a post in response to the dumbshit PC Pro article, but once he started looking into what was going on in SL he decided it was going to take a bunch of posts to treat the subject adequately.
I think I like this guy.
