Let’s start with a pet peeve …

… and then I’ll find something nice to say.

This post was inspired this morning by a shop in SL (Paddy’s) that’s participating in a couple of hunts this time around.
Unfortunately, the owner has fallen prey to the ‘Aren’t I Cute?’ syndrome of hunt participants: The few, the shamed, the ones who stock their store with ‘dummy’ hunt icons to ‘throw you off’ and ‘keep you searching’.

Guess what? It doesn’t keep me searching.
After waiting for over 20 minutes for your over-primmed store to rez, and then dealing with the lag … then the search .. then to come up with a ‘dummy’ icon, it’s contents saying ‘You’ve been fooled! Keep looking! It’s worth it!’ – This isn’t cute.
It’s a waste of my time. And it absolutely, without question, will land you on the ‘Don’t spend lindens here’ list. It’ll also land you on the ‘Mock you to my friends, so they know not to waste their time in your store’ list.

Think guys don’t have them? We do. And some of us actually talk to each other.

Don’t let this happen to you. Don’t compete for the ‘Aren’t I Cute?’ award.

You ain’t that cute.
