A big surprise to me. I have no idea where or even when I got these dances. As far s I know I never even used them so their removal isn’t such a big deal. And unlike my friend Lanie Recreant there was no DMCA letter and/or threat of banning from SL. This is what should have happened to Lanie several months ago, period. Has anyone else had their “AK Dances” removed? Do you remember where you got them? Just curious.
