Curses

I would like to take this opportunity, whilst I am lagging so much that it takes five minutes to move one step or for one outfit to rez, to curse every person who does not strip themselves of scripted items and attachments of any sort while shopping at the ETD and Last Call sales.

Could you be any friggin ruder? I mean really. Is there anyone out there that doesn't know to do this? If there is, the innocent/uninformed are excused from this curse. May the rest of you who are willfully ignoring pleas from everyone who wants a less lagging shopping experience be afflicted with debilitating lag for the rest of your days. May your attachments be missing, may your resses be slow, and may you be cursed with missing image till the end of your days.

That is all.

You forgot to mention they should be eternally ruthed too *grins*

Include those who choose to smam their gestures as well, and I'm right there with you...

they should put officere from Last Call And ETD there and just kick them as they see someone pop in with bling and too many prims would make it sooo easy.

GOD BLESS YOU! The number of blingtards who seem to think that it doesn't APPLY to them...The number of people who say 'It doesn't make any difference, it's all the scripts running!' or whatever, too.
Removing attatchments DOES make a difference, Right Click> Detatch All...it's your friend.

Oh god agreed. I seriously started twitching when I had spent an hour lagging my ass off in Last Call and spent 10 minutes navigating around a corner (moooooove moooooooove prayer on) I spotted 5 heavily primmed girls doing what? Dancing. Yes, you heard me right. And the woohoo sounds and all of that. Great huh.

Thanks for the post. I work at ETD and it's been rough for us too -- we're working stripped down and try to ask nicely when we see those heavily laden, so to speak. For the most part either people say "sure" or they don't read the message. Another reminder -- shouting is also a lag creator, so as pissed as you may be at the "blingtards", shouting doesn't help :( Anyway -- it's worth wearing system clothes and no shoes -- the sale is incredible!

Ah... I hear you. Yesterday I finally got in, with nothing on, just clothing, no prims, no nothing... Suggesting out loud to everyone to do the same! What I get in return, some support and also a lot of cursing... Anyway, I remember this time I went to a u2 concert in SL, we were more than 70 people there, all were asked not to come with any kind of scripts or prims on, and we were all bald and poseless, but you know, there was NO lag at all! And Im working on a very slow connection... I wished people were more kind. Ah.... *sigh* someday.

I haven't had much trouble getting into either place but another problem is the asshats who go afk in the sims, so that other anxious customers cannot.

That, and the very classy person who thought it appropriate to play a "I touch myself" gesture for 20 minutes in ETD just now.
