Storm Clarence Posted June 12, 2011 Share Posted June 12, 2011 Someone asked a QUESTION in ANSWERS regarding the starting a new themed sim:"I am building a WW2 themed sim currently for the second life military community. I am curious if i am allowed to use the Nazi swastika symbol. I would appreciate if someone could clear this up for me.ps: it's worth noting that neither myself or any of my fellow content creators and staff members of the sim have Nazi sympathies. We just want to create an accurate battlefield."I felt it odd that he had to put a qualifier and state that he is not a "sympathizer." I think he felt if he did not he would have been beaten up on this forum. I may be wrong, but!?My response was: "If it is in the context of WWII I would not see anyone having a problem."Another response was: "I'm afraid that even if it's in the proper context there will be objections. There's very large number of people in this world (and consequently, in SL) who cannot grasp the idea of "context". They'll see a swastika and immediately AR it (and you or your group). There's good chance some sort of discipline would be given...........up to a perma-ban. It's unfortunate that there are so many people in this world eager to jump on anything they perceive as "inappropriate". No thought given to context........just "it's ugly, and it should not be allowed". Political correctness rules this world. Education is the only way to solve it but education is not allowed because "it's ugly". I would run your plans past Linden Lab before I did anything. Sorry. What is the correct response to the question, and why? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
