This 16m2 parcel somehow was forgotten about when the lindens subdivided the region. It stayed connected to a larger parcel in the region which I acquired  years ago. Anyways it is in the middle of a Linden road. Being here 13 years or so I get bored. I placed this dead alien here probably 3-4 years ago, in a moderate region,  as a joke for travelers on the Linden roadways.

I finally got a response, just not what I expected. I imagine sooner or later it will be returned, if the offended resident is correct in whatever TOS is quoted. Anyways here is the SLurl and IM I was sent. Curious on people's thoughts on my supposed violation.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Arlberg/2/75/92

"resident: hello, i guess the dead alien on a public road here http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Arlberg/4/80/92 is related to the Aeuronaut retreat, however, this is a Moderate region, where there is no place for something like this, as you can find in the Maturity Ratings guidelines: The Adult designation applies to Second Life regions that host, conduct, or display content that is sexually explicit, intensely violent, or depicts illicit drug use.  A region must be designated Adult if it hosts, advertises, or publicly promotes:    Representations of intensely violent acts, for example depicting death, torture, dismemberment or other severe bodily harm, whether or not photo-realistic (meaning that images either are or cannot be distinguished from a photograph)."

"resident:that being said, and because this is a public road, and a half-rotten dead body being eaten by ants is highly disgusting and disturbing, I ask you to remove it from this location, before LL gets to my report that has been filled, and asks or forces you to do so."

Haha, you have a special eye. Must have been the same Linden who did the original subdividing of the region and left this poor little parcel in the middle of the road.

Something tells me whichever Linden first reads that particular AR will be falling off their chair... laughing. "Hey guys! Look at this one! Buahahahaha! *THUD!* *hahahahaha*

Okay, I think that is brilliant. And, I agree, I do not see anything "intensely violent" about it either. You can barely even see what I'm assuming is blood? 😄 If LL hasn't cared about it being there after 3-4 years, I doubt this one person's "killer of all things fun attitude" is going to make them care now. I say keep it there 😂

I just love the smiley-faced avatar behind the body fourth-walling us almost as if to say "didn't do it, just found it like this, I swear." 

And I agree with the posters before me. Leave it. It's good to see folks can still have a laugh even after all these years. The ants are a great touch!

Oh for ...

Someone's got a stick so far up their ....

The "offended" party can sod right off. If they already filed a report then their message to you wasn't even necessary, just looking to stir drama.

Whoever AR'd it can't see the humor in it, some poor soul got mowed down by a careless vehicle driver and nobody could be bothered to remove it so left it to rot away 🤐

OH, so it was YOU!  LOL

And sad that some prude would AR that, because AWESOME. I really did run over it by accident (I was coming up the hill from around the curve) and I laughed so hard. So I backed up and took the picture.

And those ants... I have been looking for a texture like that for a project, so now I know who to IM about it :)

It's the weird and unexpected stuff like this that I love about Second Life.

And to add, those aliens are getting around. Exhibit C is from one of my stores in Bay City. Being on the edge of the city, I was sick of having a road that just dropped into the void (really, they could have finished the edges of Bay city a lot better. So after I made my parcel's retaining wall, I made a bit of an off-sim jetty, complete with a bench for an av to sit on (I discovered you can sit on off-sim objects - yay!)

Then one day I logged in to discover that my neighbour had been busy improving the scene :)

"alien roadkill" has survived believe it or not.(even after sucking on that the vw bug tailpipe) Not returned yet.

I don;t think it will be. It's been there too long, it has fallen into SL "Historical Landmark" territory and they (the Lindens) *DO* do that stuff. There are examples all over the grid, from all age-ranges from the very beginning to stuff only a few years old. I think it should stay put.

Yes, I'd like to see a "fix the edges of the world" project.

Zindra needs a few more sims in the southeast corner. Several roads dead-end into the edge of the world, and they need to connect. 

The southern edge of Sansara needs enough water sims that you can get somewhere from Bellesaria. You can boat to Sansara. You can almost reach connecting water and go north into Sansara. But not quite.

(It's a tempting thought to buy up the parcels that block the coastline and put in a canal, with tolls.)

Pay to sail. That would certainly kill immersion and pizz a lot of people off.
