  1. Sure, I totally agree. Had I been insulting someone and their music, that would be totally fine. However, when all the comments went along the lines of "waiting for the voiceover...I'm exercising my captain rights (as I wear a captain costume)" etc, it's a little uncalled for. Also, had I KNOWN there was a problem, I would've much appreciated someone from that venue to let me know about it instead of throwing the boot. There is nothing wrong about removing someone who they consider as troublesome. But when it is done without so much as a heads up, that's when it became an issue. Like you said, I didn't know the people. Well, they don't know me. They don't know my situation, my reasons. This all could have been avoided had I been asked to stop, etc etc.
  2. If you've ever been ejected or even banned from a sim, then I know your pain. If it was your attitude, clothing attire, or spamming that got you the kick, the shame is always the same. But what if you got a ejection without even so much as a warning, or a "please stop what you're doing" right beforehand? As a former General Manager of a short lived french club, one thing was for sure, we always spoke to the patrons first, to make sure they were violating club rules. But as time goes by in Second Life, club owner and managers have gotten an increased power trip over having the capability to kick you out of the premises. It really is the case when I say, "the customer is always wrong." My personal experience brings me back to Ambrosia. I'd been a patron of that club for a few months and enjoyed the atmosphere and DJ selection. But on one fateful night, after "heckling" the DJ for a mere two minutes and saying 3 things, I get an ejection. No questions asked, no warning, nothing. If this has ever happened to you, then you know how it feels. Try and get your way back in and what happens? The staff refuses to hear. In other words, they are power tripping. Having been in that business myself i understood that people who really cause a disrruption should be removed, but without a warning? Something needed to be done. In these instances the customer is always wrong, for I tried to explain to Ambrosia's club owner that the whole situation could've been handled better. Incredible enough, the power trip even reached the owner, who had nothing to say about the issue, mocked me, went to far as to ban me, and muted me after finishing our discussion. I hope that in hearing this, you agree that no one should be treated in that manner. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's experienced this type of injustice, but I feel like it goes unnoticed in the public. No matter who you talk to, if they're a person of power, you are wrong, they are right. For once I would like to meet a club owner that takes constructive criticism from their patrons instead of belittling them without so much as a consideration that maybe, just maybe, their staff did handle the situation wrong.

This is totally unfair and it needs to be brought to light.
