Craspin

Foxchange hosts parties in a new sim these days, where people dress up in an Imnotgoing-like way (Imnotgoing being one of the stalwarts there). Rumor has it that Prokofy is widely mocked for her writings.

Frankie Antonioni

Hey Craspin, I messaged you in SL. Can you message me back?

Amanda

Why are you attackin Dave? What has he ever done to you? You came to our sim dozens of times and spammed everyone. We have no interest in your war with whoever, just leave us alone. The fact that you post Dave's replies to your bot only demonstrates that it's you. 100% proof. So stop with the excuses. And apologise to Dave.

While it is unfortunate that you have people harassing innocent bystanders in your name - and I certainly feel this is an unfair tactic to use against anyone - I believe the vitriolic wording of your SecondLife profile may be part of the reason you are coming under attack. Perhaps if you spent less time actively pissing other people off, they would spend less effort attacking you.

Also, the line in your SL profile "Your abusive IM is permission to publish your chat in one-party New York State." is in violation of SecondLife Community Standards, and if it can be proven that you publish any private communication in whole or in part, that could be grounds to have your account terminated.

I am not making threats. I am simply advising you of the potential ramifications of your publicly stated, open threat.

Clare Portsmouth

New York is not relevant, Prokofy. Linden Lab is not based in New York. New York is as relevant legally as Zimbabwe.

However, this isn't really a matter of law. It's a matter of Linden Lab being a private company that is free to enforce its own terms of service and its own community standards. If Linden Lab says its customers MAY NOT publish private communications in any medium, they may in fact not, *if* they want to retain customers of Linden Lab.

Of course you can disregard the terms of service completely, but Linden Lab is also free to suspend or ban your account if you violate their terms of service, for instance by publishing other residents' in-world communications on your blog.

Craspin, maybe you can help me. I cannot understand why the woodburies will go after mentally ill people like furries while also happily associating with a mentally ill man with a fetish for naked children, like Imnotgoing

Priscilla Todd

Imnotgoing was a member of Woodbury back in the day. He/she was (is?) also a high-ranking member in good standing of NCI and a number of other influential communities of SL. So I think it's more a matter of the Second Life community not caring about Imnotgoing's bedroom preferences. I think the woodburies weren't that interested in that aspect of Imnotgoing. He/she was perceived as an NCI insider and generally an ok person, and that was that.

The woodburies, like Prok, saw themselves as above the ordinary residents and as part of the political system governing/influencing SL as a virtual world (although: the woodburies viewed themselves in much the same way as a terrorist group would view itself). They hung out with Mark McCahill, this "inventer of the Internet" and inventer of SL's main competitor in the platform's early history, and their professor friends who gave them an academic alibi. They laughed at people with sexbeds and the 99% of SL residents.

@Chibi Illios-Souther all of what you are saying is arrant bullshit. Linden Lab does not have jurisdiction outside of its servers -- it makes no claims to do so. Chat or any statement of any type published outside of LL's servers is not something they can take action on under their own TOS, and they never have. I remember a Linden who once became wildly upset about a resident who wrote something snarky about all the m2f avatars who would be undone by voice. She wanted to take action against this blogger. But she couldn't then and can't now. What people write on their blogs outside of LL is not something LL can police.

It is not a violation of the TOS to publish chat on your blog outside of LL's properties. It's a violation to publish it inworld, if it was private chat, or on the forums.

Of course, LL can terminate you for any reason or no reason and they may do so and it might be in theory some chat you published. I really don't think they are at all likely to terminate a customer in good standing because he published the chat of griefers and assholes on his blog. They have never done this in 15 years.

There are always little smarmy net nannies like you in every game or world, run along now.

@Clare Portsmouth - same to you, you're just an ignorant asshole. The TOS does not say you cannot publish chat "anywhere"; its jurisdiction with a TOS is only over its own property, which established by law and practice. The restriction applies to publishing chat inworld, sending it to other avatars inworld, or on the forums. The end.

It doesn't matter where Linden Lab is physically located -- that's not the point. I realize this may fly over your head, but the point about personal phone calls -- OUTSIDE of anything to do with LL -- is that in some states, there is a rule that both parties must give consent before conversations or letters can be published.

But in NYS, only one party has to give consent. That one party is me. Talk shit to me, your chat is exposed, and see you in court in NYS, where one-party consent applies. Once again, this is UNRELATED to anything LL says. Some people, cognizant that LL has no jurisdiction outside their servers, still try to threaten you and talk shit to you thinking they have impunity because they can sue you in RL. Again, all of this is bullshit -- and no judge in the land is likely to accept a suit involving...anonymous avatars.

So run along and find something else to fuss about.

@Imnotgoing is a completely creepy RL middle-aged male who plays a girl child in SL and really pushes the envelope on "age play" in every regard. Every one knows that. Most people find such "age play" creepy, and the Lindens crack down on it when they can. "Immy" joined in griefing with the Woodburies, joined their groups AND joined their griefing parties which was documented, which is why he got banned not just from my sim but why NCI had problems with him. He and some other griefer-coddlers then reacted by creating trouble for Carl Metropolitan, who was the respected leader for many years, and he ended up quitting. Then eventually NCI collapsed and is no more. This is the destructiveness of one hugely dysfunctional age-play creep who can never rest until he has brought down other people to his level.

It could well be Immy doing these impersonations, BTW, as some of the other Woodburies have moved on and wouldn't bother (btw that would not include Tizzers who is still creepily obsessed with griefing in SL and keeps coming back.)

There is nothing edgy, or progressive, or special, or creative about the Woodbury griefers. They are banal assholes, likely on the spectrum, for whom repetition is perhaps a palliative to their condition. The Lindens banned them for unlawful script use, crashing sims, stealing intellectual property -- serious offenses that go far beyond any harassment of me with particle spam on my sims or spam in groups impersonating me.

Linda Callion

The woodburies who griefed for the sake of post-post-modernism were indeed quite creative and rather edgy. So many of them now work for Disney etc. Others have joined academia.

The ghost of Skills Hak

I would not be expecting much consistency from the Woodbury spergs when it comes to mental illness. Have you seen their leader IRL lately? LOL

Greg

As I understand it Tizzers hasn't been much of a leader since 2014 when he fell out with many of his former minions who now hate him. Tizzers is a RL leader in the communist community in West Hollywood though.

Frankie Antonioni

Hey Greg, if you do know if Tizzers is in SL, can you send me a message?

House

Lil' Frankie, you seem a little obsessed with Tizzers. Are you in love *wink wink*?

Frankie Antonioni

No House, I have adopted Tizzers. It is what I call adopt a griefer program. It is where everybody adopts one griefer. You check to see if the person has made a new account. If they have, then you report them. More than one person can adopt the same griefer. I say more the better.

As for Lil, I made some good money yesterday selling weapons, and drugs. The day before that, I sold a cellphone on the marketplace. How much have you made in the past few days House?

Frankie Antonioni

No House, I have adopted Tizzers. It is what I call adopt a griefer program. It is where everybody adopts one griefer. You check to see if the person has made a new account. If they have, then you report them. More than one person can adopt the same griefer. I say more the better.

Frankie Antonioni

As for Lil, I made 900 L$ three days ago selling weapons, and drugs. The day before that, I sold a cellphone on the marketplace. How much have you made in the past few days House?

Frankie Antonioni

As for Lil, on Tuesday my store made 900 L$. The day before I made 380 on the marketplace. Somebody had bought a cellphone. How much have you made in SL, in the past few days?

House

You made 3 USD in Second Life? Lol. Second Life is about fun (or rather: it used to be; it's now a dying game and I rarely log in). I don't give a flying f- about the fact that you made 3 dollars on the platform and I've never been interested in wasting thousands of dollars worth of my time trying to make a few cents in SL. I earn my living in the real world. I used to log in to SL to be entertained (by people like you).

Frankie Antonioni

Yeah, but I made that from marijuana, cocaine, and weapons. The store does have clothes, and other items. But most of the money that my store makes comes from marijuana, and weapons. I also make money from pill boxes. I do not earn my living from SL. But I don't buy L$ either. The only time that I bought L$, was back in 2007. That was on Ebay. I got 22,000 L$ for $54.00 US. The guy I bought them from lived in China.

I'm thinking about forming a Tizzers group. It would be free to join. Those that join, would report if Tizzers has a new alt. So if you know that Tizzers has a new alt, and know the name of that alt, then join the group, and report him.

Tim Nolan

Geez, what a boring hobby you have. Tizzers hasn't been a prominent figure in SL in a decade. Still you have made it your life's mission to hate him.

Frankie Antonioni

It has not been that long since Tizzers . Back 1n 2013, he had an avatar named PomfPomf. He also had 2 sims. One was named CVNT. He has been in SL several more times, always harassing Prokofy. Now if Tizzers had come back to SL, and kept to him self, and never caused any griefing, then I wouldn't have any problem. But he doesn't stop. So if he comes back to SL, and I find the name to his new account, then I will report him.

And another thing. In real life, I would say that Woodbury is a fine school. But Tizzers, and that professor, has ruined the name of Woodbury. In SL, Woodbury is known as a school for griefers.
The best thing for Tizzers to do, is to leave SL, and to never come back.

Jane

"to leave SL, and to never come back"

You've watched too many Coppola movies. Tizzers'll never "leave SL". Strictly speaking Tizzers IS an SL character. But Tizzers hasn't played any significant role in SL in a decade and Tizzers' only direct interaction with Prokofy were a few expeditions in 2007 after Prokofy came to Tizzers' private sim FIRST, ostensibly to "blog about" her. Since then, the main Tizzers-Prokofy thing has been going on solely on Prokofy's blog, as a solely onesided obsession on Prokofy's part that has resulted, so far, in about 200 blog posts about Tizzers, said to be a "teenager" at a college somewhere when all this started, written by a 60+ year old woman with a long interest in bashing psychiatric hospitals, and who is a mother of four cats.

Frankie Antonioni

No Tizzers, I think that you, and your friends, have taken the name of a fine school, and ruined it. In RL, Woodbury University is probably a good school. But in SL, Woodbury means a school for griefers. That's what was taught at Woodbury sim in SL, and at Fort Longcat. You taught would be griefers how to crash sims, and to cause nothing but trouble.
I have just found an account that you created. It says no payment info on file.

So you keep coming back to SL. Perhaps to cause more trouble.
I will ask around, to see if you have any more accounts.
Craspin, if you see this, message me in SL.

Kiddoh Korobase

I hate to break it to you guys, but everyone in WU has un-ironically been under the impression that Prok has been dead for the past half a decade.

Also; the WU in SL had zero impact on the IRL Woodbury University college; the main reason being that even in the height of its popularity, Second Life was commonly associated by IRL society as a place for life's failures and thus had no real social standing to begin with.

Everyone in WU has moved on with their lives; working prestigious jobs, married with kids, playing games, and enjoying life. I'm working as a character illustrator! WU the group hasn't ceased to exist, we simply found better things to do and some still hang out in SL but for different reasons. I think the main reason why a lot of WU has moved on is simply because we accomplished our mission. We can enjoy SL without worrying about some delusional idiots dressed up as low polygon "super heroes", god-complexing SL "Mentors", or lindens with personal vendettas trying to rule over all of Second Life. There is now an equilibrium where power over others belongs to the sim owners and stays within the sims they own.

Prokofy Neva

Normally I have great respect for people's privacy and their transgender choices and call them by their SL avatar gender. But not when they viciously harass me endlessly even for years -- people like Tizzers Foxchanse and Pixeleen Mistral, neither of whom are transgendered in RL and don't appear to be transitioning to RL transgendering, but are males with female avatars who constantly and viciously attack me. Go figure. You never notice the little creep Joshua questioning the authenticity of those two *snort*.
