Death Threats sent to specific creators

Question

so this will take some explaining. Many people know of the Dawn Kingdom's creator, Wanders Nowhere, had, a few years ago, released a dragon avatar. This dragon is a full sized, massively interactive beast that has practically a cult following... However...

There are certain group of people who, as of the time I post this, have moved from one creator to another, sending death threats and other forms of harassment over creators of Dragon avatars. While I am NOT the creator of any of these avatars, I have beta tested for a few of the avatar makers and worked closely with them on their projects.

What I'm after is no easy feat, for sure, but I have names and I want to know what can be done about this. These people have driven off several creators already, and it's getting so bad that creators are starting to question their own sanity, (the one specifically, I will not name, but it took me and five others to beg him not to leave SL, let alone off himself.) None of these creators were even in the mindset I should AR these people, but now that it's come to light, how do we deal with it? I'd imagine there's not a lot that can be done outside the creator ARing them, but any kind of advice for these awesome creators would be helpful.

The targeted creators have been Wanders Nowhere of Dawn Kingdoms, https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/31607

Dreamcrawler of Dreamcrawler Creations, https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/2339

Tethis String of I, Monster, https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/36764

rancorwilds  of Dragons Arise https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/223841

with Tornleaf of Red Remora being one of the unfortunate to have been bullied off of SL: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/170063

 

I'm sorry if this seems like I'm wanting to cause issues. But I'm trying to help these creators who are at their wits end. Ignoring these terrible people are just not working and instead they're coming back with death threats when they are ignored on alts.

Apparently this started with horse creators first, over dragons. I'm not apart of that community or I'd drop store creators.

I am pretty sure that you need to remove all the names and links. I got my hand slapped when passing on info that another person ASKED me too.  Against the forum guidelines to reveal anything about folks other than yourself.  Whether or not the mods let the post stay with deletions, I don't know. 

 

As you said, the creators need to send in AR reports. They could mention that they are not alone in the issue. Other than blocking the people and banning them from their lands, I don't see much else they can do.

Tell the creators:

  • Block the harassing people
  • Ban them from their land
  • Submit an Abuse Report any time a threat is received.  For multiple occurrences, reference previous ARs to help prove a pattern of harassment.
    • Note:  LL can't do anything about events that occur elsewhere on the internet.  If the harassing is by email or FaceBook, etc., or if there is any RL stalking going on, the affected people should contact the FBI, or the equivalent agency in their country of residence.
  • Oh...and, tell them to keep right on creating!

File a police report, or rather, who ever is receiving death threats should file a police report.
These days they actually tend to do the paperwork instead of laughing you off the station.
But it goes without saying these threats are a whole lot of nothing most likely, and for what I understand, the targets of the threats don't even wanna file an AR with LL? Doesn't seem like they are taking these any serious themselves.
