Maddy often speaks of her "emergency backup son", a young man who is very dear to her heart but not biologically related.

I have three (biological) sons. I haven't decided which ones, if any, are emergency backups.

Almost as bizarrely, Maddy used to have an Emergency Backup Mother. But she is, after all, a trained engineer.

Being in the humanities, I'm not organized enough for redundancies, and use scotch tape in an attempt to keep my originals from falling apart. So far, it's worked . . .

I have to say, I've experienced much less of the "Give me the sekksies" variety of encounter of late than I used to. Maybe I'm looking old and decrepit?

I suspect that reason, though, may be that the social places I go to all have a core of "regulars," and lots of chat in local to which I contribute. New people, and undoubtedly men on the hunt, do show up there, but it must be more intimidating to cold IM someone with an invitation to sex if it's obvious that they have "reinforcements" at hand, and are not there alone?

I do get hit on, now and then, but nearly always tentatively and politely. I don't get nearly as many stupid conversations. I was almost coming to believe that maybe the culture in SL had changed.

Good to know it chugs on as it was?

Not even duct tape worked and I've never had any emergency backups so you've done far better than I. Still, I refuse to leave the barn and be put out to pasture. I mean, it looked good on paper.

This "conversation" happened years ago. It was so long ago that (1) everyone talked about lag and getting logged out ALL THE TIME and (2) most people actually had the typing animation active.

So... a friend of mine and I were supposed to give this guy a tour of a rather large and elaborate sim, and he said that he had some questions. So the three of us sat down and he started typing. And typing, and typing. His little arms were going for several minutes until suddenly he was logged out.

We waited, and after maybe 30 seconds he was back. He apologized, then started typing again. He typed and typed without stopping. I started telling him "Hit ENTER. Hit ENTER!" but of course he didn't. And then he was logged out.

We started laughing hysterically, and when he came back and apologized once again, I told him, "LIsten: type a little and hit ENTER. We're never going to know what you're asking if keep getting blown off before you get to the end."

Of course he didn't. He just typed and typed until he was logged out.

At that point, I gave up and logged out myself.

Tbh the worst offenders to me are when I get IMs by entitled dinguses telling me to remake a hand-painted skin I spent a couple hours of leisure time on for a completely different uv (LL uv, I primarily use regalia). They're both super, super different and I personally really dislike working with the LLuv. Like, if people ask it's totally fine, I'll just turn them down politely, but it hurts sometimes to put on generic polite customer service attitude when someone essentially goes I want it NOW! or threatens "not to buy it" if I don't. Like... Good for you? The ad states what it's for, so good luck getting it otherwise lol.

 

Outside of that, I got badmouthed behind my back via discord-- to my boyfriend no less-- for sitting on a cuddle rug at our favorite hangout spot together.

Why? Because the badmouther in question thought I was "possessive" and "manipulative" and was trying to convince my boyfriend of that supposed fact... For sitting on a cuddle rug. Because apparently, I always joined my bf on the cuddle furniture there "without asking"... I was on voice with him the whole time and he's the one who asked me if I wanted to. 🙃 Friendship with that individual didn't last long after that.

People can be wild.

Not a private conversation, and maybe RP doesn't count, and I've told this story before... but one of the (unintentionally) funniest exchanges I ever saw was while I was still fool enough to be in Gor. I was in a tavern and, most unusually, there was a handful of free people being served and only one slave on bar duty. You'd think she'd have been in her element, but she spent so long emoting about the rustle of her silks and the light bouncing off her hair that she wasn't paying attention to the drinks order and kept stuffing it up (and how you manage that when you could just scroll back through the chat to check it is anyone's guess, but hey, it was Bore). Eventually one of the Gorean Masters got so pissed off that he lost his rag, and they started having a full on barney in double brackets, with the twonk still capitalising all his pronouns throughout. I laughed so hard I think I'd have spilled my pint, if I had ever actually received it.

How interesting to stumble upon this thread today. I recently had a guy send me an add request without a message. I usually decline but was curious, accepted the add, and asked who this person was, what did they want? Unfortunately, this  guy was very immature and me asking questions was considered, "serious". I don't get this new generation, how asking simple questions can bother them so much, they consider me to be serious for trying to communicate with them. Eventually, I was done with the conversation and decided to stop replying, since him trying to reason why I tried to get him to open up, failed and I could tell he would be the kind to never admit to anything and have many excuses or try to be in the right.

I deleted him and I believe I also blocked him. I thought it was interesting to see he changed his Display Name to a female name.

I started to remember that his username was familiar but could not recall anything else. 7 years is a long time.

 

[2021/10/14 08:36]  Me: another blast from the past friend offer. so...did you just come back to sl and you're adding old contacts from your calling card folder? or is this about something else? I don't remember you. I do see I left a comment on your feed, 7 yrs ago.
[2021/10/14 08:38]  Me: I've acepted your friend add to see what this is about.
[2021/10/14 08:39]  Me: hello?
[2021/10/14 08:39]  Me: why would you send an add and then not reply/ talk to me?
[2021/10/14 08:40]  Blast from the past: ur right, i'm just checking out how things is going on here. Looking for people I was playing with. Thats fun but i dont remember you as well, sorry if i bothered you
[2021/10/14 08:40]  Me: what is fun?
[2021/10/14 08:41]  Me: you didn't bother me. I am asking you questions. would be off if I didn't.
[2021/10/14 08:42]  Blast from the past: lol why so serious, you willing to do what you want, i just add you to check if there's somebody alive from my past
[2021/10/14 08:43]  Me: you obviously want to reconnect with old friend to start your circle of friends again. did you expect me to just say hi and nothing else? why are you getting offended over normal and simpe questions?
[2021/10/14 08:43]  Me: so it is serious to ask questions, after a 7 yr old contact, sends me an add without a message?
[2021/10/14 08:44]  Me: you can actually send a message without sending an add . this isn't discord.
[2021/10/14 08:47]  Blast from the past: I didnt expect nothing, i wast sure your still playing at all. I have 3 persons in contacts and just checked each one, than i saw that we were interaction. keep calm I'm not a maniac (sorry for my bad english)
[2021/10/14 08:47]  Blast from the past: *interacting
[2021/10/14 08:47]  Me: we obviously met through the game system, bloodlines and most likely were in the same clan together. "blast from the past" is seeming familiar but that is about it. I sent that message to everyone on my friends list, 7 yrs ago, about humping my prey, to get a reaction since most people go silent after awhile of being added.
[2021/10/14 08:48] Blast from the past: Got you, thanks for info, sorry again ❤️
[2021/10/14 08:48]  Me: I am calm lol. asking questions of almost a decade old contact sending me an add, is normal. I also always ask why players will send me an add and refuse to message me. it's weird.
[2021/10/14 08:49]  Me: if you are going to contact people, feel confident enough to know how to start and retain a conversation.
[2021/10/14 08:50]  Me: I'm guessing you are young and immature, as an older adult wouldn't say "serious" when asked questions. you want everything to be simple and simple minded. so now you know I am active and enjoy a great conversation with one who knows how to do so.I have conversations with foreigners too, who don't use their language barrier as an excuse.
[2021/10/14 08:52]  Me: yea be sorry for lack of depth! lol gah it's so frustrating when people message you out of the blue and expect a simple minded convo or the old, "hi how are you?" crap. if you know you lack in communication, it's best to not send adds.
[2021/10/14 08:53]  Blast from the past: I see, but it's just a game you know. I'm 26 old actually, dont playing online games now much.
[2021/10/14 08:53]  Me: omg you went in invisible mode on me, while I am typing to you. lol I haven't seen behavior like that in yrs!
[2021/10/14 08:54] Blast from the past: damn its just hard to reply as quickly as i want to lol
[2021/10/14 08:54]  Me: it's a virtual world business platform for creating and making profit, with devel;opers who create gaming systems and add the sims style of gaming with their products.
[2021/10/14 08:54] Blast from the past: i dont speak english irl t all
[2021/10/14 08:55]  Me: but you went invisible on me. should have just deleted me then. literally telling you I haven't seen this behavior in yrs.
[2021/10/14 08:55]  Blast from the past: I not even sure what each buttons means in UI
[2021/10/14 08:55]  Blast from the past: sorry
[2021/10/14 08:56]  Me: yes you do because it shows you when you hover on them. nice try bud
[2021/10/14 08:57]  Blast from the past: we are speaking like im old man maniac from idk some sort of nowhere and trying to abuse you lol
[2021/10/14 08:58]  Blast from the past: or i didn't chat with foreigners from sl for too long

I see I had to change the name in one of the lines for him and referring to his name, changed that too.

When my account was about ten years old I began thinking about roleplaying with an avi that would be the same age as the account, and age as the years went by.  It got weird, though, having a 10-year-old girl avi and an adult woman profile.  So, I made an alt, and clearly stated in the profile that I'd be roleplaying the new account as if it had a rl birthday and rez day of August 10, 2006.  Before I'd even gotten off newbie island or whatever it's called, I was getting hit on -- and the guy didn't care that I was playing as a kid.  I kept warning him about ToS, but he didn't care:  He felt all of SL's female avi's were fair game for bumping pixels.  Even kids.  That was the first time I ever reported someone for attempted sexual play with kids.

Then, I got done with the tutorial, went to the first default chat area you get sent to after the tutorial, and immediately got hit on by ANOTHER guy!  I was still in my beginner avi,

1037777803_beginneravi.png.36dc4bf8beccb6cb33089613f33c919d.png

So I wasn't thinking, "great, ANOTHER pedophile" -- he simply hasn't read my profile yet (unlike the other guy for whom my rp as a kid was a turn-on, ew).

Well, I kept telling him to read my profile, but he refused, because reading profiles was "against his policy".  Um, what?

We went back and forth over why he should read profiles, especially mine.  When I told him the age I was roleplaying, he flipped out, said he was going to report me, as kids weren't allowed to play SL.  He thought I was really a kid!  When he finally got it through his thick skull that I'm not a kid, I'm ROLEPLAYING as one, he said he would then report me for kiddie-porn.

Facepalm-Example.jpg.59eb233a857445797226addb8fe9d7e1.jpg

I told him the only one who'd been sexual was him.  If anyone could be reported, it would be him -- though I didn't think he would have propositioned a young girl had he read my profile.

"I told you, I don't read profiles!  Ever!  And now you again say you are a child!  You can't play SL!  It's for people over 17!"

[And I found the chatlog lol]

"i copied your name a profile"
     uh huh
     why
"no under17 should be here"
     The USER of this account is WELL over 18
"but you are not"
     the CHARACTER roleplayed, and AVATAR for it, is almost 11
"how old are you inn RL"
     Over 18
"ok"
     and was when I joined sl 11 years ago
     as stated in my profile
     this is an alt account to my main
     which is an 11 year old account
"listen I don't read them"
     well you should.

[It devolved further, so I stopped talking and let him ramble]

"thank you little tiny girl"
"get lost"
"Im building a sim, and not worry about your dumb ass"
"shut up"

Had this happen just the other day. Someone rezzed a sky dome that was so huge that it spanned over the width of approximately 9 regions on Mainland. Blending milky ways, random falling stars, and luminous clouds. I would actually like to see the LL sky. So I contacted the owner of said massive sky dome, asking if they could please delete it. They reacted and promised to take care of it "in a moment". After hours, still nothing happened. I messaged them again.

Me: "Could you please remove it now?"
Person: "First time someone complains about a beautiful gift."
Me: "If it ruins the experience of others, it's not really a beautiful gift."
Person: "Yes, there are always people who can't see beauty." 

:S

Not so much a conversation, but oof. This just happened recently.

Was at an event in a Moderate region with some friends and my partner decided to demo a chair. He was on the chair for a couple minutes trying diff poses and then some naked chick suddenly sat on it and started IMMEDIATELY flipping through the adult set of animations. 😕  Made him feel super uncomfortable and when he stood up from the chair in shock, some big mostly-naked macho muscle man immediately took his place and they kept flipping through nsfw animations in front of my group.

Felt really... Icky. What's wrong with some people, I s2g. Like, just wait your turn? It's not that hard, why sit with someone you don't even know and start flipping through raunchy anims? Just... ugh. 😒

Back when I did SL as a female, I often would take rides on airplanes. One day I got on a plane, and a young boy avatar got on as well. As the plane was flying he started talking to me about how his Mom was not going to be able to take care of him for a while, and she had put him on the plane to fly him to stay with his aunt. It all seemed innocent enough so I played along. When the plane landed he said his aunt was running late, and could I watch him till she got there. Well sure why not. Not long after that he started talking about my breasts and asking to see them. I could tell where this was going, so I got out quick.

What truly frightens me is the sheer number of women that will approach me when i am an animal av with requests/descriptions of "what they want me to do to them." Lady, I'm a freaking wolf/dog/horse/dragon/snake/freaking sugar glider!!! YES, a sugar glider. Tiny little sugar glider. "oh your fur must be so soft, i want to rub you all over my *****."  Dear gods! A least guys just want TEH SECKS!! There's some freaky women in SL.

My contribution is not really a funny conversation,. but just an insight perhaps into why people IM random strangers. Took place a safe hub (yeah, it's a bad habit but the antics of other users are too funny to pass up.)

Dude: hi

Me: hello. may I help you?

Dude: help? hahaha!

Me: Well then why did you IM me?

Dude: It's a form of communication. (Yet he could have just said my avi's name in local if he wanted to talk to me specifically...I mean he doesn't hesitate to talk on local chat or on mic....)

(This is a guy who usually is on voice talking about fringe political stuff and conspiracy theories. )

   Ya know, I would really, really like to contribute more to this conversation as so many of you appear to be very wise, smart, and had/have experience with oh so stupid people, but for the life of me I don't think I can atm. I mean when I played very, very regularly back in the day I never experienced such rude, creepy, and stupid behavior. But that just might mean that I had so many good creative friends that I associated with, or was just lucky I guess. It was a blessing in either case. So I just want to say instead, never change. Continue being the good people you are, and "just say no" to such weird asshat stupid people. You give me hope... 🙂

Peace...
