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.
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
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.
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!!!!!
