RedZone certainly seems to have its work cut out for it, with contentious public opinion, and potentially changing Linden Lab requirements (I think a number of us can sympathise with that, at least). Linden Lab rejected RedZone’s modifications that requested consent for the publication of alt information, and RedZone creator zFire Xue went back to the drawing board.

The latest version removes Alt-account display and Alt-account likelihood from the system entirely, along with the consent model that went with it.

Instead, the latest version just focuses on the core functionality: Scanning accounts and IP information; and allowing RedZone owners to ban a person from their land, and automatically also banning anyone that RedZone believes is an Alt-account of someone who is banned. Since no information is apparently being made available to third parties in a forbidden fashion, that might pass muster with the Lab.

The Lab is… well, the Lab, though (if you’ll pardon the tautology), and it is possible that they may change the goalposts again if they don’t like what they see.
