Second Life Age Verification Bug

There has always been a huge and simple workaround to verifying as an adult in Second Life. Many times people have made bug reports and forum posts only to be ignored or their posts deleted. But the workaround is so simplistic it's really funny and embarrassingly easy.

So you want to verify your second life account as adult. All you have to do is go to this website:
It contains the entire Social Security Death Index. Go to that site and for example just pick any old name off the top of your head. For this example we will find a name at random.

Lets use "John Stone" a name we chose at random, now type in John Stone on that site and click Submit you will get the following results:

Now using this we get a legitimate Name, City, State, Birthday, and Social Security number.

Now just enter this information into the adult verification screen on Second Life's site and your account will become adult verified!

You would think after years of people showing, explaining, and bug reporting this to Second Life they would resolve to fix this. Especially since they will be merging the teen grid with the adult grid soon. But nope, ever since Second Life has been, also this bug has as well.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the “Next Blog” button in the Nav Bar at the top of my blogspot blog. I occasionally just check out other blogs to see what others are doing.
