Catching up And censorship in the West

Well, first, let me say this has been an interesting and exciting week. i have been exploring Second life, had the opportunity to spend a huge amount of money on clothes, and made several new friends. This blog entry is to play catch up.

I am over my cold...thank you all for your kind wishes

We went to dublin for a few days and had a nice time there. Those trips are becoming very normal to me now...3 hours on the train, bundled up in folds of latex, sealed underneath in layers of tight restraining rubber and usually typing on my laptop.

There have been several people telling me they cannot get to my photos on flickr. Blame your governments is what I have learned.

When I moved my photos from yahoo to flickr, Yahoo in their great wisdom, declared my account as a loose cannon. I do not know why since none of my pictures are pornographic or even terribly suggestive. Apparently, people in rubber, however, are not to be seen by normal human, so Flickr made the account one of restricted content in its safesearch settings. I do not know why because I would have put it on moderate. But they will not change it.

People in certain countries cannot access flickr restricted content accounts. it seems some of your governments are enforcing this. It is terriby unfortunate, but I do not know what to do about it. We may try to copy the pictures to an account for Sir and see if we start it off at a moderate level with restrictions if Flickr will leave it alone.

This all happened when yahoo made us migrate to flickr.

On other fronts, I have met a very nice lady on Second Life, named Ruri Muni. She has a store selling gestures and sounds and you can find a SLURL to her store in my sidebar. She has great taste in clothes and her avatar is a lovely elf (with curly horns). She also takes a mean picture and helped me start decorating our house.

While wandering around second life, Sir and i were at the Latexia store, a big, fully stocked latex mall run by the Latex dolls sisterhood, and a couple of other shoppers recognized my name (latexladyll galicia) as being related to this blog. So that was fun. I seem to have a bit of celebrity there...a bit daunting actually.

I've met many other people, including Alysha who runs an incredible clothing store making gorean fashions, victorian fashions and other amazing clothes. I am sending her some latex textures as she makes burqas and perhaps can make me one or several in latex. her designs are amazingly authentic and I find that even though I can dress anyway I like in SL, I miss my veiling burqa even though my avatar is not allowed to have a face (her skin is rubber at all times)

I am finding SL quite compelling and Sir is as well. He has started scripting and is experimenting with things he can do. We shall have to see where that all goes.

I look forward to seeing some of you in SL and shall post again here soon.
Regards
Lady

It was an immense pleasure playing with you on SL, especially getting to see part of your own domme-ish side. Given that you and Sir must have more than one computer, 1421 hopes to see you both on together and return to that certain place for more public "showering" of affection. :)

Hiya Lady!

It's always fun hanging our and talking with ya and thank you sooo very very much for putting in a good word for my store, even if you're sounds aren't quite working yet...

I hope Sir will fix your sound and allow you to listen in to the world, it really does add a richness (sometimes) that silence doesn't share.

I look foward to chatting again! Sir and you are so sweet on each other and I can tell that he totally adores you in every way...

Anyway, See ya in game!

-Ruri

What you say about flickr is so true, sad to say. As a german I get censored too. It took me a while to find out in the smallprints that my account got limted because of my location. Flicker like Yahoo seem to use geolocation techniques to determine where your IP address is registered. Thank god they have a wrong entry for the provider of my companies network, so I was able to create a us based not limited account
