Can I really be reported for this?

Recommended Posts

I have a confession to make.. i umm slightly accidently cheated on my alt...

But seriously, I suggest you try somewhere like eharmony or rsvp or match.com if you are looking for a real relationship.

but in SL you can and will make friends with other avatars as there are real people behind them!

I am male in r/l but have been playing a female character on SL for the past two years. I got into a text-only r/ship with a real man/male avatar on SL which was interesting to RP, mostly as an experiment to see whay people in SL get up to.

Recently, after 8 months of 'virtual dating', this man became moody and insisted on hearing my voice. I turned on my mic and admitted I was a r/l man.

He is now claiming he will report me to LL and get me banned for life for 'deception'. So I'm wondering - does he have any basis for this? Or is he just ranting because he feels stupid at not asking me to verify r/l details earlier?

No, you should be ok.

Yes, he should not have assumed your RL identity.

I feel like *morally*, it was wrong, because it'd been long term enough for real feelings to be involved & he must've made it clear he believed you to be female?

But *legally*, as far as the ToS/CS then no, you did nothing wrong & if Linden Lab investigated all reports like this, then prim babies really would have to grow up to be Lindens because they'd have no time to do anything else, like lag the hell out of my pc so I can't talk! (Ok, I probably do that all by myself)

I tried to read through this old thread, but I was laughing and shaking my head so much by the end of the second page that I decided it just isn't worth it.

Gosh, someone isn't the same gender as their avatar.  Even if they are, maybe they are married in RL but claim to be single - or vice versa.  Or maybe they are 80 in RL and claim to be 30.  Darn, darn, darn.  

The only real issue here is that the two people involved in this 'relationship' appear to have not communicated very well - and that impacts nobody except those two.  And while some folks here might find that morally wrong, there are others that don't.  Such is life - we do not all have the same morals.

This is the internet.  Anybody that assumes RL stuff based off of things said or done in SL are taking a chance at being completely wrong.  That is the fact of SL and anything on the internet.

So we can be thespians? =~.^=

Since we are on the derail team anyway ...

What I want to say:

They told me that to make you fall in love I had to make you laugh.  But every time you laugh, I fall in love.

What I really say:

It's insane how fuking amazing your tongue feels against my body

Look back through this thread gave me an idea.  We should start an SL Drama Club!

Only if we can quote everything Shakespearean.

A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.

Wrong. It impacts only one of them - the one who was deceived.

You are right though - not everyone has the same moral standard. Some have a low moral standard. The OP appears to be one of those. They are the ones who don't find anything morally wrong with what the OP did for 2 years.

If he didn't spend any money on you, then no LL will treat it as a complete joke.

If you actually "tricked" him into spending significant $ on you, then it's considered fraud and you can be arrested.

Even that, within SL, is highly unlikely unless it actually crossed into RL.  If the other person simply spent a lot of L$, there isn't much that will be done by anyone.

Them: "But officer, he was my wife, and I spent $5010 (US$18) getting him a new head , then it turns out he wasn't a girl after all,"

Mmm, sure, the police will treat that one with the urgency it deserves.
