I still have a few friends who are doing . . . ok.

If befriending you is wrong, I don't want to be right.

Ren acknowledges and starts saving for @Orwar’s sadistic—in more than one sense—fees, but just witnessed @Amina Sopwith’s dissection in undisguised (if still third-person) awe, and is now in an ‘oooo, shiny!’ kind of dilemma.

She can’t help it, she likes things well-roasted.

Oh lord, I didn't mean it as a "roast". Just an explanation of my feelings on this totally engineered and contrived situation, for all the good it's likely to do. I didn't intend it to be so long, either. As Mark Twain (I think) said, I didn't have time to write a shorter one.

s’OK, I said it tongue-in-cheek. And I enjoyed every word of your Mark Twain 😉

No, but we risk an increase of escorts inworld growling with their moneymakers instead of shaking them .. Do we really need that ? :P;)

Right. Cuz I am totally associated with the burgeoning sex trade in SL, right? I'm the poster girl for it!

Just call me Madame Bedwell from now on, please. And don't forget to tip the venue, and treat my girls well too.

I strongly believe Bagnu is just trolling us all.

Of a sort, yeah. But she's in no way a toxic poster: she'll occasionally say something . . . unfortunate . . . but I see no evidence that she's deliberately provoking controversy or outrage, in the way that a "classic" troll would.

She's already admitted that she likes being the centre of attention. And probably most of us, if we look deep enough within ourselves, would be forced to acknowledge that there is at least an element of vanity in posting here.

Thing is, what she's doing works. She gets great responses on these threads! And they're absolutely about her!

So . . . who is being foolish here, exactly?

Not all trolls are toxic, but they're trolls no less.

'sides nobody likes an attention *beep*.

The hatred for me has RL shocked me.

You need to learn to separate the two, so when you log off, SL is over till you log in again. Also assume that everyone else does the same, so when they log off and go about their real lives, you never enter their thoughts. If you can do this you won't worry so much about what happens here.

And yet, here you are . . . posting on her thread?

At her worst, she's pretty harmless. At her best, she's pretty genuine and enthusiastic. I kind of like seeing someone as excited by all this new stuff as she often is.

But, YMMV, as they say.

Then there's this thread, which is just...why? If you're that concerned that people will be victimised for their friendships with you, why draw everyone's attention to it, increasing the very presence and persona that you think are going to cause trouble to your loved ones? I haven't seen a single person attack anyone for being friends with you.

If I felt a group of people were very critical of me, or even hated me, I would be concerned about those who were expressing positive feelings towards me as it's not uncommon for people to take sides in conflicts.  Not sure how responsible I'd feel, but I do know how dynamics in groups often play out.

And...perhaps by announcing that some in the group liked me it could also be a way to say to those who are critical of me "hey, see I'm really okay as some of the most powerful & well-liked people in the group like me".

Compartmentalization isn't for everyone.   I often dream about SL, or even certain forum discussions.

Not to forget her calling people disturbing for the dastardly deed of changing their avatars drastically.

You're only her friend for as long as you don't do it so be careful.

If SL makes you happier in RL then that is wonderful, but if it causes you trouble in RL you need to separate.

We must define "trouble".
