Got an interesting question that I cant answer. Seems someone broadcast their voice remotely to a prim(etc) worn by another avatar located on another sim from the speaking avatar. Blocking the SPEAKING AVATAR (not on the sim) shut off the voice but blocking every avatar ON the sim did not. Obvioulsy a new griefing technique. any ideas how this was done?

It's possible to have your avatar's voice instance on any region without being there using a modified viewer. You can hear and broadcast voice without your avatar being present.

Most likely what you saw was a bug though.  Sometimes when you teleport out of a region, your voice instance gets left behind at the old location and your voice will remain connected there until you logout of the viewer.

It can also happen that slvoice does not shut down properly, especially after a viewer crash and your voice instance can remain connected to the region for hours sometimes.

It's an old problem but fairly rare.

Couple of bug reports about the 2nd case:

https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/BUG-8543 - After teleporting from Region A to Region B, voice sometimes stays connected to local voice chat on Region A until you relog

https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/STORM-2109 - Avatar Does not leave previous area voice during a race condition
