"A big check on aggressive tactics on the auction was that you could not bid more money than you had in your account. The system would reject your attempt to bid, and would tell you to go buy more Lindens.

But that system was recently dismantled. You can now bid as much as you want, as many times as you want, way over the amount in your account. If you win an auction and you don't have money in your account, so what? The system lets you do that, without any freezing -- only non-payment of dollar tier owned to LL will freeze after 7 days. An account in arrears in Lindens has no consequences."


This actually reminds me a bit of naked shorting. Except in this case treating the L$ as the assets and the land as the currency.

Kinda scary, actually.
