This is what I said in the “Why Are You Downgrading” survey (links added):
I no longer wish to support LL. I’m tired of LL’s money-grubbing strategies, most recently illustrated by their recent changes to XStreet. These will now make it impossible for niche merchants to sell their products and will make it harder to search the virtual world for goods, as creators who are not also interested in becoming businesspeople will no longer be able to post their goods there. While I enjoy the virtual world on the SL Grid, LL is continually making decisions which make clear that they are more interested in ancient business practices of wringing their users dry than they are in building a community which is happy to support them.
If you read Linden Lab’s post about the XStreet changes, it is extremely transparent that they are just giving over to greed, yet again, and I am tired of supporting them. Over the next week or so, I will be moving all my products to the Metaverse Exchange, and I’m glad to know that LL will be getting no more of my money.
