Voodoo Sploders banning you from entering venues
Has anyone else experienced problems with the above? I recently found myself banned from a location with no explanation given!
After much searching and contacting the owners of the venue, it turned out I was on the banned list of Voodoo (which apparently the software that runs sploders) Although I find this really hard to believe as in over 12 years I have never even touched one of their sploders and didn't really even know they existed
Their own website states "You may have been banned in error as it happens a lot"
Long story short I contacted Voodoo support and unbanned myself with their supplied code, end of story you think? not so, I was still banned from at least 2 venues
I opened a support ticket with Voodoo (as I was now being bombarded with messages from the Voodoo software, informing me that I was banned) and asked them (nicely) to get it sorted
However, as I had used the term "crap software" on the support ticket, they claimed I was clearly a "griefer" and not only would the ban stand, but I have now been banned and blocked from their in world location, their website and the two people I spoke to in world have me blocked! So I now have no way to contact them or challenge their decision!
Add to that the growing number of venues that I can now not get in to, all because they blocked me in error (probably a long time ago)
I really don't care if they block me from their sploders, because as I say I have never even used one, but to block me from venues I use? how is this ever fair? and why do Linden Labs allow them to behave in this way?
