Sex Offenders on SL

in fact, I found this, which, if anything, is somewhat antithetical:

Of course, its only antihetical, when you want to disclose someones private information...or should I say your assumption of someones private information. To value everyones right to privacy is not antiethical. Do you even have the smallest idea how important it is to have a rule against spreading someones private informations out in public?

On the flipside: What do you exactly hope to archieve?

You are on the internet. Everyone here can be "inappropiate" towards you, thats not tied to being a registered sex offender. And you don't meet people, that are from the US only. But the good side is: You are only on the internet. Mude, block, derender and move on, instead of getting all emotional and curling up in a victim position, because someone wrote something offensive in your IM box. You are, at no point, in harm. And you don't need to spread out anything publically to report a person that breaks the ToS or the law. Report it to LL, if its breaking the ToS and report it to the police, if you have evidence that there is a law being broken.

The damage of outing peoples identity are is a milion times higher, than the benefit you are seeing.

There is nothing wrong with warning people about repeatedly convicted sex offenders who are doing, on SL, what they do in RL

But that's not what you wrote. You wrote that he'd made suggestions to you, and you're an adult avatar.

Ruchi, it's time you took the good advice that's been given to you by more than one person. AR, block, move on.  If you're after what you see as justice in this forum you won't find it because no-one in this forum can give it to you.  You clearly want to name this person but if you stay here keeping your grievance hot and not taking sensible action, then you're wasting your time.

Actually, Garnet, it is you who has thrice solicited me now to name this person in contravention of the forum guidelines.  It is I who have shown restraint in avoiding your and others' questions attempting to elicit this information.  So, please don't manufacture facts that support a false narrative.  The reality is quite the opposite of what you suggest.

Correction: the inference may obvious but not the implication.

Call it what you like.  I'm glad you agree with me that his insult is obvious.

Absolutely I have not solicited you to name the person.  I asked you to talk seriously about the subject, that is to raise your concerns and let other people give you advice or possibly raise their own concerns. I DO NOT ENCOURAGE THE DISCLOSURE OF REAL LIFE INFORMATION.

I actually didn't go into detail about what he did in SL to me.  In the portion of my post you seelctive quoted out-of-context, I was talking about what he did in RL to others.

You most certainly have been repeatedly goading me into revealing information in contravention of the guidelines.  But I'm glad to hear you've changed your ways since yesterday.

You're procrastinating, dragging this out to get - what?  Drama, attention?  You're lashing out at everyone, misrepresenting people because you can't get your own way.

The right to privacy, like all rights, is a balancing test.

The right to disclosure of information that poses a danger to others can outweigh the privacy rights of the sex offender.

I have not done so.  I do not tell lies.  Your saying so does not make it true.  Are you a troll?

No, I'm just responding to posts with counter-arguments.  Isn't that what you're doing?  I take that back...it's not what you're doing...you're calling me a drama queen and an attention seeker to attempt to undermine my arguments.  That won't work, and also constitutes insults/flaming.

EDIT:  And now you've called me a troll.  I'm not a troll.  If anything, calling me names is what's trolling, and now I'm reporting you for it.

I'm not "lashing out" and I'm not trying to "get" my "own way."  I asked a question in the OP.  Perhaps you have lost sight of what this thread is about because many of the participants are not conducting a civil discourse.

Unless people have been sending you private message, nobody has made any attempt to have you disclose the name.

Oh, I don't agree with you at all. He didn't say anything negative about you. Some sensitive people could think that, but he didn't write it.

I asked you if you are a troll, I did not call you one.  You accusing me of encouraging someone to break the guidelines is laughable, so go ahead, report me.  It still won't get you your idea of justice.

I don't even have to re-read your op because I remember what you wrote - words to the effect him making unwelcome or disturbing suggestions to you. That's what I referred to.

See...again...you're name calling, by saying I'm being overly sensitive.  He did resort to name calling that rises to the level of flaming, and he's been reported for it.  Whether you agree or not doesn't change that.

I haven't IMd her either, just to make that clear.  The forum mods can check that, I believe.  I have nothing to hide.

Maybe if you DID re-read my post, you'd see it was a question.  But the people in this thread who have engaged in a lack of civil discourse have caused readers to lose sight of my original question.

You are waaay to sensitive. I didn't say that about you. I said it about some people. As it happens, judging by your post, I do think that about you - either that or you just like to argue.

Ans whilst I'm here, Garnet has not tried to get you to name the person, and neither has anyone else in this thread.

Ok. I went back to read it. This is what you wrote:-

I ask because another user divulged his real-life identity to me, and then subsequently behaved in a way that was arguably inappropriate.

It wasn't a question at all. You said that his interaction with you disturbed you to the extent that you decided to check on him.

There's more than a whiff of troll here somewhere.

Theresa already pointed out that the receipt of photos that look like a RL offender by no means indicates that the sender is that offender. To my mind, this would almost guarantee that our OP has been tricked into believing an elaborate troll. On the chance that's not the case, there's still some probability that we're all being trolled by this thread.

So now, after all these posts, the chance that there's a real offender actually behind this seems remote -- especially considering that the clear correct course of action was explained in the first few responses.
