  1. I've been many years in sl and never had any issue's considering being called out for harrassment. So I have a question over something I've put into my profile. I used the name of said certain person who had stolen orginal content of something I created to keep people aware that this person is stealing things. it's just a name not a full explanation, Now I get bombared with pm's to take said person's name out of my profile as it's considered against the rules. Or so the they say. My question is, is it? I see nothing of the sort back in the rules or anywhere on google and most of my friends also use names into their profile. I get threats to be reported if I don't so I am asking is, how serious should I take this? I'm not a bully I'm not a mean person but I do get threatened almost as if they like to do this, They won't leave me alone even when I said to do so. I've muted every single person as I'm not here for issue's I just want this person to stop stealing orginal content and make it's own. So I said if this person does I will. I'm a little bit confused to be honest, I never had any problems with this game until now, In my believe it's neither allowed to steal someone's content or even copy their profile, but I might be wrong If someone has the answer then I be grateful, ~x~
  2. I was a player of Progeny for a while. Progeny is a vampire game within Second Life. You can bite other vampires(which is usually fighting) and you can bite humans(people who are not in the game) To fill up on blood. My friends and I would get attacked a lot when I first joined. When I learned how to fight better I went after a lot of the attackers in the game. Frankly, I would win and they didn’t like it. In a time frame of months, I paid fifty dollars every month to the game's Patreon. I would estimate about five-hundred dollars in total. I was banned by the moderators(diabolics) of the game. I did nothing more than play the game. I pushed the bite button on the HUD. Turns out these aggressors and bullies are friends of the moderators of the game and they complained which got me banned. It’s politics. These people gossip, create drama, lies, and they make me look so bad. Today a Progeny group notice went out saying I have alts in the system(just trying to make me look worse), and the moderator was saying stuff about eating people’s faces. The issue with the notices is that it leads to a chat discussion in the group where a lot of people were talking badly about me. Frankly, It’s just a form of harassment and bullying by a community with over 3,000 members. It’s only a selected few that do this harassment and bullying. I have videos of these people harassing and bullying me. They would physically push my avatar around the sim, swearing at me, saying derogatory things towards me. I tried to handle this type of harassment against me within Progeny. But, they are just too corrupt and biased. Once again, politics. Is there anything I can do about these people trying to put me on blast, and their harassment towards me? Anything about the hundreds of dollars I lost in the game for no reason? Someone told me I should take legal action.
  3. I was a co-owner of a new strip club and the owner of the club has harassed me, fired me from her staff, and scammed me out of over 10,000L that I invested into decorating the club, renting ad-boards for advertisement and hiring staff. She completely shut down the club and left only an empty platform behind and made off with whatever she could. After shutting down the club she has proceeded to harass me, and claim that I'm lying. The only reason she did this is because I told her that her friend that she claimed was a decorator was putting in new furniture that looked cheap and didn't match the theme we were trying to go for in our club. She initially hired me as manager, and I was the one getting boards, hiring staff, and handing out landmarks and applications. I busted my ass for this girl and she repays me by running off because she can't be patient and wants instant money rather than realizing that clubs take a lot of time and effort to properly establish. I want to file a report to Linden Labs about this and see if there is a way to recoup my investment, but I'm also aware they usually don't get between person to person disputes. Is there anything that can be done? She basically cut and run due to impatience at not making anything from the club after we had only been open less than a week. If anyone can offer advice or a way to get in touch with Linden Labs or customer support of some kind that would be most helpful!
  4. Aloha all. I need to vent. Have you ever had people break into your home? You know that sense of privacy violation, and your sudden vigilence and tension? What did they touch? What did they photograph? What did they plant? Have you ever had someone corner you, only to have people watch the abuse rather than do anything to help? And what if there’s no video, no evidence? Well, it just never happened then, did it? It was probably all in your imagination, and you have some growing up to do, right? I wrote previously about two men that entered my SL home uninvited and refused to go. The home was a rental and had no way to ban people, so I was left with having to report and block. That’s the official SL process, one that does nothing to stop the abuse while it’s happening; you’re left having to accept the abuse in hope that maybe, possibly it will stop several days later. There is no way in SL to fight back, to defend yourself; your only real option is to leave. That means logging out of SL immediately, or to immediately find and move into a new, safer home. Neither option prevents the abuser from continuing such behaviors with others, that same day or maybe forever. You just have to accept and hope that reporting and blocking will do “something.” To be fair, there are two sides to every story. Maybe I had it coming, right? Maybe it was just cyber-bullying and I should forget about it in the real world, right? I moved from that rental into a Linden home, and a stalker-like neighbor was regularly camming into my home - often enough that he eventually spoke proudly about doing so, and about seeing me without clothes on. I wondered whether I was appearing in a collection of voyeuristic photos. Again I reported the intruder, with the hope that someday the behavior might stop. At that time I was a new home owner and didn’t yet know about the “avatars on other parcels can see and chat with avatars on this parcel” tick box, which should prevent others from camming into our homes. So I moved away. To my knowledge the voyeur didn’t follow. Things in my new home have been going well. Then came last night: two girlfriends and I were on our boat, anchored in the middle of the Blake Sea, chatting offline. Yes, we’re in different rooms in the same RL home and sharing the same VPN; meeting in SL is our pandemic substitute for going out. It was fun until an intruder boarded our SL boat and was asked to leave but did not. Then he started lying about one of us having invited him, and to one of us chatting with him on Skype. It struck me that a boat is a lot like a rental home, in that there is no way to prevent other avatars from intruding and disrupting. The invasion, disruption, and disrespect were infuriating and triggered us all to say things we wouldn’t normally. It was painful to recognize that there was nothing we could do to stop the behavior. Nothing. Like in a rental home, our only choice was to leave. We all reported and blocked him, but it was painful to know that the intruder maybe / probably continued the bad behavior with others. For anyone else who has been sexually abused in RL, you know that reporting is a painful process that often leads nowhere or even to further harassment, and it’s a shame to experience that same dead-end road in SL too. Maybe the wonderful creative freedom and virtual escape from pandemic self-quarantine that we experience in SL comes at a price: having to acknowledge that the same abusive behaviors that are illegal in RL exist in SL too, but in SL they are something that we simply have to put up with. Take it or move away. There’s no easy answer to this in either RL or SL, which is why these behaviors persist. Maybe rich people in RL could buy a remote island and set up a new life. Maybe rich people in SL could buy a remote island region and set up a new life. The rest of us? We just have to take it. I don’t want to hear sh*t like “she must have had it coming,” or “virtual bullying isn’t real bullying.” If those thoughts come into your mind, get some d*mn education. I’ve met some really nice people in SL. Artists, educators, readers, writers. But a quick glance at all the ‘roid rage male and sexual object female avatar and clothing options makes it seem like SL is overrun by hormonal teenage bullies, frustrated old men going through male menopause, and abusive online trolls. You can spend all your time treading carefully in SL to avoid all that, only to have it come find you. Over and over. Maybe the SL experience I want isn’t one that you want, but nobody’s experience should involve harassment. This has me pondering whether to leave SL. Or maybe to save up, buy a remote island region sanctuary, set up ban lines, and never leave it for interactions with the rest of SL. But then what’s the point? I could draw a pretty picture for a lot less cash. And Linden Research has just been sold, and we all know what that means: new owners will jettison LL staff, will set up ways to profit off of user data, and will offer invasive new “features” marketed as great leaps forward. SL’s future is less clear, but what is clear is that the new focus will be stronger on profit than on user experience. Seems like a good time to *not* renew my premium membership. Thanks for listening.
  5. So last night a friend and I went to a dating sim (won’t name names because forum rules but I think you can guess which one) to explore and check out who was hanging out. We both are simply chatting on voice with a guy that was also hanging out there when the owner comes up out of nowhere and harassed us. She claims that I was “using a voice morpher” when I have a naturally soft voice on mic and was extremely homophobic to my friend. When I told her politely that I don’t use a voice morpher, this sim owner banned me on the spot. She banned my friend moments later after my friend tried to explain to her to and rightfully called her on her homophobic/transphobic ***** when the sim owner got upset because my friend is male on voice with a female avatar. The guy we were just chatting with? Also banned, for no reason other than he was just chatting casually with us. Is there any way to report a sim owner for clear abuse of their power? Because this woman was straight up power tripping to the Nth degree.
  6. sadly my friend has got herself in a bit of bother and has asked me for my help to see if linden labs TOS has been broken. she has received a threat from a "ex friend" after leaving a bloodline clan. that they were going to "air some dirty laundry" the post he made on fb was he had been up to the "wee hours collecting evidence (note-cards of chat logs) to air the dirty Landry". now although not a huge threat its alarming and not fair for anyone to fear the worst. expesualy as they could have chat logs of you and there convo for years and could pick anything to make the other look bad. now i read into the tos and they said that in sl or in the forums that would be against TOS but there was a note. NOTE: This does not include posting of chat to social media sites or other websites. Posting such logs on web pages, emailing them, or printing them out and posting them on utility poles in the "real world" -- are all actions beyond the scope of the Second Life Terms of Service. ; while that might be illegal, but those laws must be enforced by the proper law enforcement agencies. now this i sadly can accept as its not on second-life or any linden labs website it isn't there. but i also noted that in the TOS there is also 1.6. You agree to respect the Intellectual Property Rights of other users, Linden Lab, and third parties. You agree that you will not copy, transfer, or distribute outside of Second Life any Content that contains any Linden Content, in whole or in part or in modified or unmodified form, except as allowed by the Snapshot and Machinima Policy, or that infringes or violates any Intellectual Property Rights of Linden Lab, other Content Providers, or any third parties. so would this count as linden labs property? its a log being taken from there software and service and pasted somewhere else. mostly id love any help to reassure my friend shes in a horrendous position and i wish i could give her any advise but as you see im not so savy as i thought i was with what classes as what. thanks in advance
  7. Hello everyone ! I am a psychology student and I am conducting a study on violence (and more precisely rape) in Second Life. Have you ever been the victim of violence or inappropriate sexual content on this platform ? If so, would you accept to testimony about it anonymously in order to help me collect more data about this issue and raise awareness about the emotional consequences ? Of course, your testimony will only be used for academic purpose and your names (even your avatar names) will never appear somewhere. This study does not criticize Second Life, it only suggests that it is a context in which violence may occur, just as "real life". Thank you for reading this anyway ! For those who don't feel like talking about it, I just want you to know that it is not your fault and that things will be okay ! Feel free to message me on this forum ! EDIT : If you decide to give this a shot and have a real clinical conversation with me, you will first have to sign some documents that attest that you agree on the terms and conditions. I repeat it, everything is anonymous. In private messages, you will be given the name of the University, such as my name and contact that are all certified.
  8. Dear LindenLabs, I am writing you this letter because i am angry. I am angry, i am dissapointed and i feel lied to by you and your staff. For over a year i have been herassed, stalked and bullied by the same person. I file abuse reports, but NOTHING HAPPENS!! This person herasses me, stalks me, and spreads FAKE NOTECARDS with chats that were supposivly wth me..... in these note cards he makes me look like an awful person and for some reason he manages to get me BANNED EVERYWHERE spreading lies and rumors..... ( I myself NEVER use note cards because i know they are fraud sensitive! So i use Gyazo to make solid screenshots. Those cannot be tampered with) Yet, this is NOT ENOUGH to have this person BANNED FROM SL for VIOLATING TOS, TREATHENING PEOPLE, HERASSING PEOPLE , BULLYING PEOPLE. and all LindenLabs can say: BLOCK EM!!! What a damn lame excuse LL!! This person keeps making ALTS to come after me, and you have PROOF OF THIS and still you do not act...... One question for you LindenLabs..... (before i turn my back on you) WHY DO YOU NOT FOLLOW YOUR OWN TOS? AND LET GOOD PEOPLE SUFFER BECAUSE OF INTERNET BULLIES? WHILE YOU KNOW THAT INTERNET BULLYING IS A CRIMINAL OFFENCE ?? i am SICK AND TIRED of being BULLIED and STALKED and you not doing ANYTHING!! bye bye LindenLabs!! im going to give my money to ANOTHER BUSINESS that does EARN the RESPECT and does STAND UP for its Policy and its members.... L8ters!!!!!
