  1. (This follows directly from my topic about frustration with strangers' IMs. But this is NOT a complaint topic, but rather a retelling of a positive emotional surge I got after playing Second Life.) A few days ago I was playing as one of my woman characters at Social Island 10 and a small non-human animal monster avatar came in the region. There was not much conversation going on except between another woman avi and a suspected bot (who was a little robot). The small avi started chatting in local asking random questions, presumably in a joking manner. I made a small quip about the female avi's little test to determine if the bot was really human or not. I then hear a familiar "ding ding" and found an IM from the animal monster that came in. He started asking me a random question about golf and how it made me feel. Naturally, I got frustrated because he opted to IM me when he was clearly capable of talking to me in local chat. I asked he why he IMed me and he basically said that he wanted to. He then asked me how it made me feel. At that point I realized he was just trolling me and so I ended the conversation after saying a few words. I then decided that I would teach him a lesson about IMing people like that and trolling me. I logged in as one of my man characters , looked up the animal avi's name, and sent him an IM. I opened up with a "Hi", and to my surprise he answered back. He said "what's up?" I told him that I heard about him from social island 10. He immediately knew what I was talking about and first said "not to listen to the people there" because of his history with them. I answer with a simple OK, then followed up by asking "are people really toxic there?" He said that people are just annoying, but nothing more. He "ruffled a few feathers" there but assured me that it was just in good fun. I decided to let him go afterwards. Later on, as I logged into the original woman character I played as earlier, I saw she got another IM from the animal avi that came while the woman character was logged off. He basically said he "sincerely apologizes" from any undue emotional distress I suffered because of his actions. At first I thought he was being sarcastic, but I decide to reply and accept his apology, but also telling him just to chat with me in local next time. After I logged off from Second Life, I talked to my mom and discussed my feelings about life in general. I then recounted the experience to my mom. As I did...I got an emotional surge and started crying for some reason. I realized that the Second Life user's apology could be indeed sincere, and it made me feel...rather sentimental. (Can't think of the right word as I type this.) I asked myself, why would I be feeling like this? Why would I cry tears...tears of happiness? Tears of...gratitude? I guess it's because I rarely encounter sincere apologies in my life, especially from bullies and other mean people. I also think that sincere apologies are just rare in the world in general. Maybe at that moment, it felt special to me. I could've worded my experiences about my positive emotional surge better, but I just wanted to share. And I assure you I'm not trolling, I really felt this.
