Recently a few of my friends have said they’ve been banned from some sims or events, and yet they continue to want to support the designers in those events by blogging the items. This problem is unique to SL bloggers, cos even though they are banned, they still receive review copies from designers participating in those events. My advice would be to not blog the event at all, cos your presence is clearly not welcomed, why give them any publicity? It also seems fake to promote an event that you personally have not experienced, then how do you know it is worthwhile?
I wish more bloggers would have some self respect, and stop allowing their time and blog to be used by people who do not respect them. You can still support your designer friends, by blogging things that are released at their main store.
What are your thoughts on this? If you’re not a fashion blogger, would you purchase items on the Marketplace from stores that have banned you? Do you care?
