Rosmairta for GovernorThe Grid Democracy Party wishes to warn it’s loyal supporters for the following avies, all whom pretend to be honestly interested in your well being. Believe us, they are not. All they want to do is to keep Second Life safe by ruling it unconstrained by ToS or Community Guidelines.

The wannabe tyrans:

  1. Erbo Evans from SLGOP who in his radio spot promises that ‘you’ll have clear, easy-to-follow content guidelines–so you won’t need to worry about breaking rules you don’t know about‘. Yet, same as our current Linden Administration, he fails to mention what that content might be.
  2. Romana Wei: the Wei08 campaign is all about scaring the hell wireframe out of you, the residents. We know the rumour goes candidate Falken has sle… massaged Romana’s campaign manager, but you can believe us when we say she did this all for you, dear residents. Wei08 only released this picture foolishly thinking that the residents could be distracted from the striking evidence the Grid Democracy Party shall release about Romana Wei’s plans for ‘Fighting Danger’. We trust you shall not fall for this pityful attempt at discrediting Miss Falken and we promise to unmask WEI08’s dark plans for our cherished grid’s democracy as soon as our safety adivsor has finished analysing them.
  3. A librarian like Rosmairta Kilara as governor?! Residents, be aware that librarians are bred and raised for labeling content. Ask your human counterpart if he or she remembers seeying all those books in the library they could not take home because he or she was not ‘mature’ enough? Or the books safely hidding in dark dungeons of oblivion because ‘they’ say ‘nobody is interested in them anyway’? Voting for a librarian would not only be a non-vote, it would also be a vote for changing the Dewey classification system and label 000-900 as ‘broadly offensive’ content.
  4. flickr.com - hanakin saiman for governor Sexy vixen Hanakin Saiman. Doesn’t sound that bad as governor? And neither do ‘no censorship’ and ‘respect the different’. But big was our suprise at the campaign HQ when we read ‘for a free grid for fur people‘ and ‘democracy is insane’. As we speak the Grid Democracy Party’s lawyers are taking a better look at the ‘democracy is insane’ slogan, to see if we could sue them as we are sure that sexy vixen is trying to insult the Grid Democracy Party. We shall be asking for your money support soon as we’re planning to take this to trial as soon as we’ve been able to contact Live Help.

You wound us, Madam. We of the SLGOP don’t get into details about content guidelines for the simple reason that the full details simply would not fit into a 30-second radio spot. You may take it as read, however, that our primary interest is not in restricting the free expression of Residents, but in keeping Second Life free of interference by RL politicians and legalities. Our content restrictions will be only as great as necessary to defend against this threat, and no greater.

The primary difference here is that, unlike the present Administration, we will not keep whatever guidelines we feel are necessary in secret. We will publish these guidelines far and wide, so that any reasonable Resident should be able to evaluate any given piece of content against the guidelines and be able to definitively say “That’s OK” or “That’s not OK”–something which is presently impossible. (”Broadly offensive”? What the hell does that mean?) And that is the fundamental message of both Radio Spot #2 and the “Is She Or Isn’t She?” ad poster.

This flip-flopping by Evans is exactly what you would see in his administration.

Romana Wei is not about scaring anyone, she is about safety. The residents are already afraid, and that is why we must fight this WAR ON DANGER.

And Vint, come clean, that massage is no rumor. There’s photographic evidence. You wouldn’t be trying to say photographs lie would you? You? A photographer? What is rumored is that the two of you did far more than exchange a backrub and that there was machinima involved.

Mr. Burgess: The Grid Democracy believes in ‘photography ethics’, but do realises it’s very easy to ‘enhance’ photographs using Photoshop or other tools.

Veronique: Thank you for your support, but these photographs were actually never taken! The only thing we at the TGD party’s HQ can think of is that this must be CGI images in stead of real ones.
