Is having a "Stay Away From Me Please" list against TOS?

Question

  • 0

Why on earth would you want such a list and where is it, on your Profile? Sounds like you're into drama in a big way. Block anyone you don't want to contact you and leave it at that.

To answer your question though, I can't see how it would be against the TOS unless you were giving reasons why people were on the list and those reasons breached Section 1 INTOLERANCE Community Standards https://secondlife.com/corporate/cs.php

Nobody can have you banned. All anyone can do is submit an Abuse Report and Linden Lab will adjudicate.

I sure hope it's not against ToS. These lists always show me the best people to avoid (because they write Picks like this :D).

Skip the negativity, no-one cares who you have problems with. It only makes you look like a drama llama.

In addition to what others already said:

Such a pick is really really useless. Do you believe this changes anything? The only effect you will get is, that you look unfriendly towards strangers and probably create drama, if someone from the list bothers enough to read it.

I doubt it would get you banned, but posting things like "Lindal Kidd is a liar, stay away from her" in your profile could be taken as libelous.  Someone could easily take offense and submit an Abuse Report against you.

Just block people who annoy you, don't try to blacklist them.  They'll do that all by themselves.  See my blog post, "Blockage" for more on this.

Within one of the RPGs groups, it was told to me that it was ok to create a list in which you would not RP or interact. I have blocked these people on my end. I do not put up drama in real life nor second life either.

The one true answer:

 

It won't get you banned from SL, but if you're in an RP (roleplay) sim, the sim owner has the right to ban and disallow whoever they like.

WHAT THEY LIKELY MEANT is the sim owner could have you banned.

 

This makes sense from a roleplay perspective.

In roleplay sims, not acknowledging someone can have a big impact on the roleplay as a whole. Imagine he's starting a fight scene reeaally close to your character. And you have him blocked? Other RPers will be wondering why the heck you're just standing there like nothing happened... because you couldn't see his text to begin with.

 

Having a block list is unfortunately not wise if you ever hope to RP on a sim with blocked avatars RPing on the sim. Instead, I'd take it up with an admin of the sim/group and tell them your reasons for why you want them to stay away.
