Question

Is threatening and Harass other allowed in SL?

A guy seems have frighten other competitors away using threatening and Harass way in a game sim,

And I get the message too, and he is very clever, always harass and threaten others in  PM so that we cannot report to land owner to ban him from sim,

cause the PM is protected by the LL's TOS, and always just send message in one sentence that make you feel harass, but if get reported, it always seems is a normal chat,

It happened a long time, and make others do not take part in the game so that he can win in all rounds,

so LL allows this happening in a game/sim?

If it happens again, submit an Abuse Report via the viewer Help menu.  Harassment of others is a TOS violation - though what LL considers to be a violation is often different from what the Residents do.  LL has access to all chat and IM logs, but you can provide quotes from your IM log in the AR description if you like.

You can always "mute" them.

The Knockout machine there can win L$20 Per hour, he still can win even there is no competitors, and I want to win that L$20 too, or still have other place have the same machines?

So this is a skilled gaming region?  

Regardless, mute him, ignore him, continue playing your game.  Abuse report him if necessary.  The ONLY things you can do.  Just play your game and ignore him.  He can't do anything to you.

There are some great Freeplay areas at many skills gaming sims which do not tolerate griefers.  Cashino Games is my favourite. There are freeplay games of different types there which will pay you a few L$, and always keep an eye out for the annual skills gaming fair - usually September-ish I think -  which will win you some more Linden dollars to play at various skills gaming sims. While at any gaming sim, look at people's profiles to see what other groups they are in and you'll find other places to play.

They should "mute" him too. If they all do he won't be able to harass anyone in IM's, problem solved.

I agree with Nick, the easiest and immediate solution is just to ignore the guy. If everyone just mutes him, he loses his power -- but you can absolutely contact the land owner to complain about him. If everyone also messaged the land owner, I'm sure they'd rather ban the guy from their sim instead of letting him chase everyone away.

Do you mean "It happened a long time ago in the past", or "It happened many times recently?"

Given the context, I'm pretty sure they mean "it's been happening for a long time".

Have already submitted over ten abuse report, and LL do not take any action, SO it always protecting him form getting reported and protect his game dominating behavor, And I want LL to take some action on this problem and give players a fair chance gaming environment, Everyone can win in a game, not a person using the rule of land or LL to protect them to dominate a game, and trying to kick away all the protential competitors

So now that guy using this to protect his dominating behavor, and no one can take action on him, the Land owners do not want to take action, and LL does not take action, so he use this way to make others not to have a competition with him, and we can only deal by ourselves, so that's why he does not afraid of getting reported

If NO ONE goes there, how can he win?  Find some other place to go.  If the owner won't do anything, STOP GOING THERE.   Maybe then he'll do.something...or not.

If you have submitted ARs and nothing is done, then apparently LL disagrees with you about something happening that is violating the TOS

So, I guess you will need to ask yourself, "Is it really worth winning 8 cents an hour to put up with this annoying person?"

Oh! Now I get it. This is the Knockout game. "Only one person can win and everyone fights to keep the current High Score in this fast paced action packed timed traffic gaming system that plays just like Slot Bingo or "Zyngo" and the winner gets a L$ Jackpot and is FREE to play!" So driving other users away is profitable.

That's an perverse incentive system rarely seen in Second Life. There are are other games intended to draw traffic to a region, such as fishing games and lucky chairs, but they don't have a game mechanic which encourages obnoxious behavior.

"The only way to win is not to play".
