Then while visiting the Verdun museum, I stumbled on this fellow, and decided to send him my notecard about why I was boycotting his event -- due to $100 pulls, 50 pulls for a prize (!) and no-transfer prizes -- not to mention failure to take a civic stand about the LindEx crash.
Here's the conversation:

[15:54] Emery Milneaux: (Saved Sun Jul 17 15:11:27 2016)Laughable.
[16:03] Prokofy Neva: Laughing all the way to the bank, I bet, Emery!

[17:27] Emery Milneaux: Nah, just laughing at you. ;)
[17:28] Prokofy Neva: well that seems professional of you Emergy, but thanks for confirming that the LindEx crash means nothing for you and your millions : )
[17:28] Prokofy Neva: I'm going to give your museum a partially positive review any way
[17:29] Emery Milneaux: Your opinion of my endeavors, whether positive or negative, have no effect on me.
[17:29] Prokofy Neva: Just like your laughing at me has absolutely no affect on me, either, big guy!
[17:29] Emery Milneaux: Cool!
[17:29] Emery Milneaux: We're good then.
[17:29] Prokofy Neva: do try to have some social conscience, $100 gatchas are obscene, as are FIFTY PULLS for a prize that you can't seel
[17:29] Prokofy Neva: note that Epiphany only has 25, and most are transferable
[17:29] Prokofy Neva: you and Cory Edo deserve each other!
[17:30] Prokofy Neva: creators in SL can be so douchey!
[17:31] Emery Milneaux: You're certainly entitled to your opinions. I don't knock that. But your attempts to rise up an army against The Arcade is laughable. It's ridiculous. If you don't like the way things are done, that's perfectly fine. It's your right to feel that way and (I'd assume) not visit or shop the event.
[17:31] Emery Milneaux: The negativity is far, faaar out-weighed by people who love the event.
[17:31] Emery Milneaux: And the experience it provides.
[17:32] Prokofy Neva: Who said army? Not me. Boycotts in SL never work because people are sheep and creator fascists and the Lindens control the media. But it's important to raise some awareness and I do get a lot of readers to my blog, plus I have thousands of customers. It's just my little bit to try to induce SOME shame in people engaging in such unconscionable bilking of the public : )
[17:33] Emery Milneaux: Riiiiiight...
[17:33] Emery Milneaux: Well, enjoy the rest of your weekend!
[17:33] Prokofy Neva: you'd be surprised how many people responded with secret support of my boycott but they FEAR being banned from the parcel -- or any parcel -- by your mafia. And that's exactly what you all do over much-needed criticism. Bye!
