Redzone recieves a labotomy

Okay so finally LL has taken some more actions.  Basically this one boils down to any attempt to show a persons alts is not allowed EVEN with consent.  It's not allowed, done, sorry.  Personally I bet this was put in place due to three things.  ONE - zFire was outed by one of his own supporters that he promoted some people to admins and they had access to the database (which he denied later on of course).  TWO - Several folks were commenting that their alts were being shown without their consent (imagine that....).  THREE - zFire was elbow deep in discussion on his forums about how to show alts and work it around the TOS
(one of their genius ideas was to scramble the first letters of the name ex I might end up as kotosi cbonwood).  So basically they shot themselves in the foot.  LL gave them an area to work in and they went around it so LL took even more room away from them, I think all they have is a closet left now.

ANYWAYS... here's soft lindens post from the JIRA

Soft Linden commented on VWR-24746:

Hey, all. I got the go-ahead to give an update on zF Red Zone specifically. Again, thank you for the ARs with specific info about violations. These have been very helpful for letting Lindens know what's going on.

Tuesday morning, we removed zF Red Zone from the Marketplace for a second time. We removed the in-world vendor distributing the item as well. We determined that zF Red Zone was still in violation of our Terms of Service and Community Standards.

We asked for removal by no later than today of all zF Red Zone functionality that discloses any alternate account names. That is, even if consent is asked, the service may not act on the consent. In addition, we asked for removal by no later than Friday of the interface for and any remaining implementation of the zF Red Zone consent mechanism because it does not comply with our policies. If these updates are not made, we will take appropriate steps to remedy the violations.

As before, we appreciate your help in keeping an eye on content. If you find that any merchant's product is not in compliance with our TOS or our Community Standards, please file an abuse report about the product. Do this even if you filed against a previous version. Include a specific explanation of what you believe is a violation, and ideally select and report the in-world object at issue in case it behaves differently than what's in the Marketplace. Before reporting, make sure you have first-hand knowledge of the issue. Support can best react if you explain specific steps to reproduce or confirm a violation.
