Whenever I was in a foul mood, my mother would say, “Don’t be a Grumpy Greta.” I figure Mom should Greta for her alliterative name because Dad was altogether too fond of Greta Garbo. Oddly enough, according to ancestry.com, Dad and Greta Garbo were 2nd cousins twice removed. Who knew? Well, I am a Grumpy Greta this morning and it is all because of creator profiles. Actually it is one creator’s profile, but since the problem is so common, I will not name the store or creator. After all, if there are literally dozens who do this, why point to only one?
This is where the store owner’s profile pick takes me. Please note this is not a store. This is a house. It is a lovely house, but it’s not made by the creator. I checked. It’s a LAQ house by Mallory Cowan. I did not go inside because I don’t go in other people’s house uninvited. That is not quite 100% true. I did teleport into someone’s house before being booted. That happened when I followed this same creators SLURL from Marketplace. So to recap, the Marketplace store link goes to someone else’s house where there is a 10 second security orb ready to toss you out and the profile store link goes to the creator’s home. No store at all. There is another store listed in the profile, but that is for resale of breedables, not what I was looking for either. The store does not show in Search – perhaps the creator cannot afford the 30 lindens to pay for listing in search because no one can find the store to buy anything.
