…and some fell on stony ground

For Stony Ground read Deaf Ears. Linden Lab has found a new way to attack its residents. Now we have a bug on most servers that will eat a huge hole in one’s Download allocation, if one has one. Even if one doesn’t most ISPs operate what is called “fair usage” policies which penalise users who hog bandwidth, the upshot of which is a severe throttle on one’s connection. SVC-8124 was Linden Lab’s warning that all was not well. There appeared to be a problem on Magnum sims or for anyone on neighbouring sims whose draw distance allowed them to see such a sim. It then migrated to LeTigre and spawned SVC-8155.
Despite all these warning signs, and coherent data provided by residents, the bug has rolled to Main Server, and thus now infects virtually all SL.
Side issue: Why is it that Lindens always insist on residents doing their (the Lindens’) jobs by logging errant data?

I had hoped that some common sense would prevail, but it seems that the pressure brought to bear on the programmers of Secondlife is so great and from so high-up, that caution was thrown to the winds last week.
It now remains to be seen how long it will take SL to atrophy and die. Personally I am measuring the time in weeks, not years.
It really is quite remarkable that The Lab has been given information in clearly digestible form by the more intelligent residents and has yet again completely ignored what is staring them in the face.
