sorry thomas but the idea that a person can be detected by skills system 
while running LL's client on a name that is new today and never been 
logged in on any other client... shows that the information used to 
detect if a person has 'ever' used a bad client is coming from the 
persons computer. and the fact that one of the admins over skills system 
tells you that in order to run a bad client and not be detected by the 
system is to install vmware and run the client there tells me that the 
system is in fact gather information from your computer. the fact that 
the system in not installed on my computer leads me to believe its 
HACKING. you can protect your friends all you want thomas but Linden Lab 
needs to address that fact that this system is a HUGE violation of the 
terms of service and various local state and governmental laws.
