Are abuse reports absolutely pointless?? in Abuse and Griefing Posted February 27 For about 6 months one of my adult venues is being pestered by a griefer. He started by kicking around guests at my place, but once I caught him doing that I banned him. Then he came back with larger equipment. He managed to kick my guests again while he himself was outside my venue, standing on neighboring land. He uses some sort of tool with a huge prim that he swipes through my venue, thus kicking out all the avi's that are not sitting on anything. And because I have already banned him, there is nothing I can do about it. Now I've sent several abuse reports about this person. I found several of his alts and named them too in the abuse reports. I added pictures of him hanging right next to my skybox, I made pictures of the griefing tools he uses, I mentioned the names of the tools and the creators. I filed these abuse reports several times. You'd think that something would be done about it. But no. The guy is still around and today he was again griefing my place, kicking guests out and annoying everyone. I asked LL's Live Chat about this, and they gave me some bogus answer about the Governance Team working on abuse reports and them not being able to reveil anything due to privacy. I've been around in SL for 14 years now and I have had several successful and busy venues. Over the years I have experienced several times that griefers could be active for a very long time, despite lots of abuse reports against them. Which brings me to wonder: how does this Governance Team work? How do they deal with abuse reports? What sort of proof or evidence do they need to actually give a temporary or permanent ban to a griefer? Can someone explain this to me?
