Don't Do This: Caveat Emptor

If you're going to read the warning sign, don't quote it to us when you don't follow what's written on the warning sign...

[22:31] SoThisGuySays: read your caveat! I just spent 1200 L for a MALE purple Wolf. Now I suppose it was my mistake..I am back in front of the poster and see no gender information. I dont care so much about the money as the face that the av looks like shit! I tried to amscluinize the female. Next time put some information telling us how to purchase. And yes I am Pissed,
[22:32] Jakkal Dingo: You mean like where it says "Comes with complete avatar parts (Head, Skin, Legs, Feet, Tail, Neck and both genders)" ?

The only response I got from him was a notecard with this on it:
"How many others have complained to you about gender errors? Enough that you mentioned it in your wonderful ( I am not responsible ) note. and I am distributing this to the two others you mentiooned above.. and beleive I will never tell anyone in my clan or my sims to do business with you or your firm."

I love it when people try to use this kind of logic on us. "Lots of people must have driven you to make this note!" No actually we've had that sign since we've made avatars. Why? Because we knew what would be issues. We knew people wouldn't read. We knew people would try to blame us. We actually get very few "I got the wrong gender" complaints because our prim avs (the things we sell the least of) are the only ones that come gender specific! I'm not going to bother to point that out. Clearly he didn't read the sign, he didn't know what he was doing. And I'm not about to handhold him so he can figure out how to pay a vendor.

[22:50] Jakkal Dingo: Yes, do please, actually tell people to read the vendor information before you buy. That's generally good advice. Thank you for helping to support this issue.

Don't take my word for it, the vendor says...


And don't forget that pesky Caveat Sign:



Edit: But wait, there's more! Forefox just sent this to me:

Forefox: SoThisGuySays has offered you 'Purple wolf' in Second Life. Log in to accept or decline the offer.

SoThisGuySays has offered you 'Purple wolf' in Second Life. Log in to accept or decline the offer.

Forefox: Yes yes... this person is spamming me with notecards!

And he finally decided to reply to me:

[23:02] SoThisGuySays: It only comes with the female at least the one I have has no male skin or what ever determines gender.
[23:02] SoThisGuySays: I cont care any more..
[23:02] SoThisGuySayst: Nevermind!
[23:04] Jakkal Dingo: Have a nice day.
[23:05] SoThisGuySays: I will. If I worried about the few but memerable times i got ripped off I wouldnt be in SL It asctually never happened before. You have a good night too..
[23:06] Jakkal Dingo: I'm sorry someone ripped you off. Perhaps you should take it up with the Lindens.
