    In this case, the OP indicated she was AFK for 5 minutes. I don't think the life or death emergency excuse applies for her actions. 

    I do think we didn't get the whole story, though. It would be interesting to hear it from the land owner's POV. 

    I never said it did. All I said was there are times when people aren't going to be able to just hit that little X in an emergency situation. Then someone had the unmitigated gall to try to tell me I could take the time to close out a virtual world rather than use that time to save someone's life. That is messed up.

    I thought about doing that but in the end for my specific situation I don't think they'll take his computer away from him. He'll still come in SL. I don't think he stalks anyone but me and I saw his entire police record, he really puts a lot of hours into it. His whole life it seems is lived online. I guess I could do it Monday. This isn't a new issue it's a long i think 8 year one that is so exhausting because of the amount of effort I put into trying to get anyone to help and listen. This even extended outside of SL into other games. I'm pretty sure he had a spy on my Steam account (Steam did hard ban him from friending me according to them because he made threats to end his own life if I didn't talk to him) but I deleted all those people a few years ago and just keep people I know offline on my list now and he hasn't found me in any new games. Just thinking about this again is bad. It started out as a pet peeve on here and now I'm thinking about it again and It really does affect me barely going in SL these days.

    I'm not trying to scare you or make you relive unpleasant things but you have got to take control. The potential for harm is very real and you are not the only one who is at risk. If you won't do it for yourself, please, consider the lives of other possible victims. He needs help and if he won't get it he needs to be stopped. No question of that.

    Well I did report this to the police in 2017 and got an investigator (they contacted linden labs who did nothing over the course of 10 months or so) and they told me who it was and what state they live in and I know everything about them now, more than they'd ever know about me but I don't really know what to do with that. They continue to bother me and I'm kind of scared for various reasons at this point to do anything but ignore them which doesn't seem to help. I'm not sure how to proceed with it. I pretty much gave up logging into sl anymore other than for 5 minutes at obscure hours.  This person also stalked me intensely on flickr with mere text. No one cared about anything he said but it stopped me from using and enjoying that too.  I just feel like I can't go into sl without being monitored or do anything online with any known nicknames I go by. It's upsetting.

    Contact law enforcement in his area and send them a copy of all of the info you have, Police reports, everything. HIs next victim may not be so far away and in more danger.

    Given how diverse LL is and how supportive they have always been to things like Pride celebrations, I have a very hard time believing they would discriminate due to something like ethic background.

    I'm not buying the implied racism either. One of the draws of SL has always been LL's diversity.

    I do this because if someone does want to get me a gift and they want to use my Wishlist because they aren't sure what I might like,

    Me, too. I even have a couple of 10L items on mine and nothing over 900Ls and I do feel like I am really pushing it with the 800L+ furniture. I have zero expectations that any one would spend that much on me. Those are there mainly as an "I hope I have enough Ls some day". All of what I am currently earning is going towards the things I need for my creations I plan to sell. Next bit is already earmarked for full perm landscaping stuff.

    I tell people the above when they are leaving SL forever, but I also say that if they leave their account inactive just in case one day they might return, before they logout for the very last time, delete everything you can in your inventory, save for one shape, one skin, one set of clothes. That's enough to have to start off fresh as a brand new account and not have lots of old objects, textures, scripts, and sounds in inventory

    I hope you are not giving this advice to any content creators because if they follow your advice there will be a lot of unhappy customers with broken content.

    Paying for demos. Is a petpeeve.

    Most say its to avoid c-bots (you get what I mean)

    I don't understand why customers have to suffer because of what c-bots do.

    Yea I know it's just one 1L omg..lmao etc etc.

    But I've seen some that were 3L.. for a demo...

    I've seen 10L and up. Needless to say I don't do business with any of them. I don't pay for demos. Frankly, anyone that does should have their head examined, as my grandmother would say. I see it as money wasted that could have been used for better things. Like a donation to RFL.

    Oh I have deleted and blocked them 100s of times. This person has made 100s of accounts and they probably are tracking me via the uuid. I probably should have said that before. They not only track me but my friends and the times they log in.  They message on new accounts, numerous within minutes and I block and eventually they give up but then track me anyway on a new one, they even did track an alt once though it was for holding gacha stuff and not a name anyone would have known and at the time they tracked it, it was in a private sim alone. There's a lot of stuff they do out of SL too I just don't want to go into all of that.

    There is no fix for this person. I've sent harassment tickets to LL for every alt they made to contact me. This has been happening for a LONG time. I started SL as a teen and now i'm late 20s and pretty much that entirety they've not gone away, I've blocked countless alts.  The sheer amount of alts I've blocked of theirs is more tiresome than a mmorpg grind in a free to play game.

    Online stalking is as illegal as RL stalking. It's past time to involve law enforcement.

    First forum post so first of all hi to all.

    The reason why I'm responding to this as i had a similar thing happen to me the other day . I had a skypad one of those great starter ones so i had a place to rezz in and change and so on. I let the sky pad go as found somewhere else but i had not changed my home position so unintentionally rezzed into this skypad one day when logging into SL , well the new occupier was standing there and asked if she could help me . Immediately i apologised and explained why i was there and she was very nice about it , we both wished one another a lovely day and i left immediately and made sure to change my home position straight away. My point is , to use a old LM and then just go AFK without even first checking where you are and if you are in someones land/home was rude , you should have apologised to that person and left immediately. . Their money that pays for their tiers/rents = their personal space and rules.

     

    Didn't it ever occur to you that sometimes it's not possible to check anything before going afk? I don't know about you but I value my life and the life of my other half far more than I do SL or my computer.

    Isn't that kind of what Second Life is?

    I think what Gopi had in mind was more like Surrogates with Bruce Willis. Which, when you think about it, we (humans) are well on our way to a surrogate society with cell phones and all kinds of portable devices. Not a very comforting thought for us pack types. Physical contact (being touched) is very important.

    yes this

    for me the Home button is my default click for every situation that isn't what I anticipate or want.  Lagging - press Home. Wrong TP History - press Home. Incorrect destination - press Home. Aged LM - press Home. Uncomfortable chat - press Home. Wrong search choice - press Home. Need to AFK - press Home.

    You must have a normal sized bladder and don't need to just jump up and run. :D

    Oops, no. YOU didn't. Sorry about that -- momentary forgetfulness about how this software works!

    ETA: Fixed!

    Thanks. I even went back and looked to see if it was me. lol

    That happens when you do the highlight to quote thing from a quoted post. It puts the wrong person's name on it. It's happened to me, Love and about 5 other people in the last 2 or 3 months. So I don't quote from within a quote anymore to avoid confusion. ;)
