Hi all. A friend, a newbie, asked me how can a friend stalking her that way: he knows constantly where she is, and with whom. She is little scared and frustrated. I already said her to keep calm, nobody can hurt here. But I'm curious, and want to try to understand how to best react: 1- Is him using a script/tracker technique that shows also who's around her? 2- can he cam in "private/cannot cam" parcels? 3- does stalking represent some tos violation? Thanks mates Regards
I recently visited a Safe Hub (I know I know, I was bored) and sat in on some heated conversations. I wasn't a big contributor, just kind of texted to the people around me and had a good laugh. I left, and out of nowhere a guy IMd me a goodbye, which I found odd because I wasn't talking to him at all, but didn't think too much of it. A couple of hours later, he IMs me AGAIN, and I jokingly call him a stalker. Things get really weird from there. He starts talking about (paraphrased here) how I was on the prowl for a booty call and how HE wanted to help me out, and blah blah blah. I told him he was wrong and went quiet, and was JUST about to mute him when he called me by my RL name. Since then, I have not spoken to him, and have filed a report against him under the category of RL information. I am seriously spooked though; upon a thorough google search of my avatar's name, no RL information came up. I am terrified he knows even more. Does his have my phone number? My address? The names of family members? It's really done a number on me, and I've spent hours scouring the forums for any similar situations to this. My question is (and please forgive my naive wording here), is there any kind of underground database, software, spy tools, etc that would give this guy my information? I am tapped into Comcast's randomly generated WiFi (thanks neighbors) so getting my name from the IP doesn't seem likely. I'm just at a loss. Of course, his account is also nearly 12 years old, and perhaps he knows me from an alt. However, even my closest friends on SL don't know my RL information. Any information you guys can provide would be appreciated, and put me at ease. Thank you.
I have received a troubling IM from a dear friend of mine in Second Life, where she describes the following. Someone is harassing her to potentially stalk her in real life and god knows what he would do else. I have made a screenshot in-world of my conversation with my friend, where she also copied her conversation with the harasser, by using the Report Abuse tool and then reported him under disclosure>real life information. It has occurred before, but at the time I did not think heavily about the situation. I now worry about her well-being, what are the necessary steps to execute to have this situation dealt with? Kurenai Jun. p.s. In essence of terms of service, i am unsure if i should include screenshots of my conversation with my friend, the victim in this post, so I have not included them.
