It’s been over a month since the first post of “A Sad State of Affairs”, (in case you missed it you can read it here

https://furelle.wordpress.com/2012/10/08/the-sad-state-of-affairs-an-outsiders-view-nsfw/), I wanted to give you all a little follow up.

Abuse reports have been sent to Linden Labs from numerous people on a daily basis about our friendly neighborhood griefers and trolls.

Just a few nights ago I was sitting nice and quietly at an info hub while the griefers and trolls walked about the hub griefing just about every avatar there.

While I sat I took snapshops and sent AR’s to LL.  Here’s some of the fun I was snapping.

This avatar was just sitting nice and quietly on the wall when LongLoost decided to sit on them and defecate.

“[23:36] BURBUR BLURSH (ipunky): The poop and pee is made for laughs not to BULLY.”

We’ll get to you soon Burbur Blursh (ipunky)

Laughs?   Who finds this funny?

This individual above was minding their own business when Longloost decided to urinate and vomit all over him.  Fun and Games??  I’m still not getting it.

In the meantime, I am still sitting nice and quiet AR’ing Longloost while he trolls away.

Will my AR’s attrack a Linden to the hub??  Is it all a waste of my time?

Some of LongLoost’s troll friends arrived.

Let’s meet Burbur.  A fine looking avatar for sure.

Let’s investigate Burbur a little more shall we??

Well go figure, copybotted, stolen boots.  Now wonder she looks good its stolen content.

As I sat quietly watching the clock turn, guess who appears.  WHITNEY LINDEN.   I thought WOW maybe my AR’s are working, maybe they ARE being seen.

You tell me

Let me share that chat, since it was all in local I can post.

And there you have it folks.  Whitney has left the building.  Not before passing out her bear to someone that trolls, bullies, wears stolen content and is a general menace to SL society.  Nice to see the Lindens supporting these folks, Isn’t it.

The advertising “atari” spam bots are still all over the info hubs as well.

Let us not forget about these loving characters too.  It’s all fun and games right?

This isn’t offensive whatsoever.

No shooting blood or violence however, defecating and urinating and vomiting on avatars allowed.

No Buying, selling begging or recruiting allowed, however. wearing stolen content and spamming to your marketplace store allowed

No Sex, Nudity or Offensive Language allowed, however, having a cock shoved in your face and being humped when you don’t want it is allowed.  In my world, when  you say no to a cock being shoved in your face and tell an avatar that is humping  you to go away and stop  is equal to rape.    Just Sayin

No Annoying, repetitive or adult sound allowed,however, this is allowed….

And there you have it folks.  Why do we bother?  Linden Labs does not care about their user base.

More and more people leave SL daily and the user base is mostly bots and alts.

The LL Motto:  Your world. Your imagination.

Linden Labs has no idea what goes on in “Our” world.  I guess all this is “Our” imagination.  This shit really doesn’t happen.

Content creators are having their designs stolen and passed out on a daily basis.

Users are threatened, extorted, harrassed and abused daily.

Petitions are out there

AR’s are Filed

We follow the rules and still nothing.

What does your paid account get you?  Live chat help, that’s it.  When you go to live help, depending on your situation of course, you are told to file an AR.

What a joke. 

Your world. Your imagination. Oh really?

This is still the tag line that appears on Linden Labs homepage, but really the only part that rings true is the imagination. You can imagine a place where you are free to create, but others can feel free to steal. You can imagine a place where instead of being a community, we attack behind each others backs like petty little children. Attacking anonymously to me has the validity of a horses excrement….but like I said your world, your imagination.

SO FOR THE IT WHO WILL NOT BE NAMED HERE

Thank you for passing our shapes out and great job on setting up your little store on marketplace. Now make sure you make some good videos using them like the stuff you post on youtube using others names. If you need a platform with a user base the size of a small town to prove how awesome and cool you are, then you really need to reexamine your life and priorities. You say how everyone who plays this is a fool, yet you spend hours and hours online doing what you do. If they managed to take your account away you would just come back and start all over again. Now that is an obsession. Since you mentioned that you were 20 something, and comparing that to your online hours just shows you lack any real friends. I am sorry you couldn’t cut it in the modeling world if that was the start of your butthurtness but how are you going to handle rejection in the real world? Since your 20 something you have a lot of years of work ahead of you. So every time you get fired from a job or in trouble will you turn into this creature who wants to destroy everything? We see it here in the news all the time. You have to work for the goals you set, falling short of a goal is a lesson. You take all of these lessons and become stronger in the weaker fields and to supplement what you may already know. You learn nothing by stealing  (other than feeling more confident in getting away with it).

A shape really isn’t everything, it still takes work to make it look good (especially mine) you still need to know how to do the work ( I do) and I would say 100 percent of the people who want World for a job will want World, not a copied shape. You can’t copy my personality or the way I do things because honey…..your not that good.

As I said (and please imagine its being said by tommy lee jones in the pipe scene from the fugitive) I don’t care…..ironically since mine was a linden shape it was non transfer, now I have a transfer version. So if anyone really wants my shape just IM me. Don’t spend 800 lindens on that because there is no refunds and you’ll be disappointed.

Your so vain I bet you think this blog is  about you…….you’re so vain (you’re so vain)

Have fun getting that out of your head

This is about our creative environment…Second Life

In particular, Linden Labs. I am one of the many who pay a small pittance for a little parcel. (but not for long) I am a simple guy, I like to drive on linden roads or fly etc. But I also am aware of non permanence, and while this is a fun distraction, its not my be all end all. In real life I hate television, laugh tracks on sitcoms drive me insane. American news is about as insightful as a library in the dark while blind. Politics here and probably anywhere really has made it a us versus them mentality, when in reality its always us versus us. So for me to have a creative platform that has no shooting (I suck) or jumping cliffs etc is just another creative outlet. If I was a great painter I would gravitate that way but multi color stick figures may not be up everyone’s alley (or would they?)

I am a musician, a multi instrumentalist, that’s my primary creative outlet. I study, I learn. I try to seek out my own answers, and not be fed what others want you to hear. In the same breath I keep my opinions mostly to myself, I try to hear everyone’s side before I even attempt a resolution.

So lets have a simple look at AR reports and retention at its basic level….the welcome area

My original rez in area when I came in was at Morris so lets have a peek there,

Oh sorry, can’t make it there because it has been crashed for the 1000th time today.

Always the same people, day in, day out. Can’t even attempt to build a cube much less walk. The mentions of yes, that’s why you don’t go to those sandboxes to build has no weight for someone just coming in. Paying an outrageous price for a stand alone sim isn’t always the answer, I came here to meet and be fascinated by new people, not for being secluded somewhere on a sim powered by LL’s apple 2. (ok 2e sigh)

So for the AR reports sent that they wont police (actually I don’t think they can) what does that say to the person filing them? We don’t give a shit, why should you?

Feel free, however to purchase your own gpu crasher etc on marketplace, all the kids are doing it….I hear its all the rage.

See for yourself for fun and giggles sometime, head to the morris sandbox and if your not caged, orbited, or any other sort of lagtastical greatness within an hour……..well in lieu of actually physically eating my hat, I will delete my prim floor (then rebuild it)

Linden employees get it too when they have to drop in there for some reason (but they can return anything)

On the subject of marketplace

It is perfectly acceptable to advertise your products at any welcome area you choose. We appreciate it more if you use items that unless you are turned away they are always in the middle of the screen. In fact while you are at it put on movelock, sit them on information kiosks with bubbles around them that directs them to your marketplace page! It must work good because there is more and more everyday.

It hasn’t been days of it, its been weeks….months

AR reports, pointless. So to me that says we really don’t care. So to the honest people who may actually pay to advertise who do it the proper and correct way there is a cheaper method. But I guess that gets down to a question of ones own morals and ethics

Now back to the ground level, the new user experience

Well if you are lucky, as your first online experience you can run into this guy…..

His pointless online existence is to hang around welcome hubs pushing girls or standing by them dressed this way, doing that behavior. As most know, not all are an adult age and many countries have many different laws about certain acts etc. But according to the multiple AR reports sent, its all ok behavior. I think it’s a bit mentally suspect, but I digress.

User retention from an “oldbie” standpoint

Its not really about the non answering the AR’s I guess at all. Its just comes down to one sentence.

You don’t know a fucking thing about SL.

Your user base you always depended on being there.  Maybe you’re just trying to make it go away. Like a bad utopian dream that failed. That’s cool.

Lets be honest here, most new users don’t buy anything at all. They get maybe one cool look (if that) then get bored of it quick and quit logging in. But Linden Labs should see where the bulk of the purchases come from, they should know what the events are, they need to have a clue as to why some gather at this place called second life (on another note I hate the name second life)

It makes it incredibly hard to support your product when you can’t respect your user base. AR reports that don’t get answered eventually turn into just a question of why bother? Apathetic certainly, but really……really?

And since I am ranting

People who know me know that I hate to ask for anything. I did Mr VW out of my own pocket, it was my choice. Would I be better served paying for cable tv and sitting on the couch saying “Get me a beer Ethel!” Not in my head. So its my choice.

It was an exercise in creativity, that’s all I need. Besides one year a winner uses a horse, the next one dresses like one….its pure expression, nothing more.  For me I don’t expect to make a red cent out of modeling, never have, and that’s not why I do it in the first place. It’s a way of expressing, in ways its an artistic release. Do it for you…if it makes you happy then hell yes. The smile you get from here leads to the smile out there that may touch another. That’s my simple beliefs. This constant negativity is just something we are used to at this point. Our society is used to the phrases like nice guys finish last or Kharma equals everything out, but in reality everyone finishes the same, its just the space in between where you can be a light or a blight.

And that’s all I got to say about that

Will He call?

Nothing happening on the TV, I sure hope Johnny calls. I am so bored.

Still can smell him

Hmm, Johnny left his shirt…..thats a good sign! Oh, it still smells like him.

The phone call

*ring* *ring* Maybe thats him now! Hello? Steve? uhmmm sure I will go dancing….Ok, see you then…Bye.

Sorry Johnny…..been waiting to long.

Now, what to wear?

Shopping!

I have to get something great, Steve always dresses so sharp.

Dance the night away

Wow! Steve is so much fun! Glad I didn’t wait…..and his shirt smells better. Sorry Johnny.

 We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like: “I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive. “
Suddenly, there was a terrible roar all around us, and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, and a voice was screaming:
“Holy Jesus. What are these goddamn animals?…….. Did you say something?…….
Hm? Never mind. It’s your turn to drive.”
No point in mentioning these bats, I thought. Poor bastard will see them soon enough.
How long could we maintain? I wondered
Our vibrations were getting nasty. But why? Was there no communication in this car? Had we deteriorated to the level of dumb beasts?

   No. We can’t stop here. This is bat country.

“Ignore this terrible drug. Yeah. Pretend it’s not happening.

Yeah. HI THERE! My name… is, uh, World Duke.

I’m on the list. Free lunch, final wisdom, total coverage. I have my attorneyyyyyyy… with me, and I realize that his name is not on that list, but we must have that suite! Yes, must have that suite. What’s the score here? What’s next?”

“Your suite isn’t ready yet. But someone was looking for you…”

“DAH! No! We haven’t done anything yet! “

“There’s a uh, big machine in the sky, some kind of, I dunno, electric snake, coming straight at us.”

“Shoot it.”

“Not yet, I want to study its habits.”

There he goes. One of God’s own prototypes.

A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

bad waves of paranoia, madness, fear and loathing

intolerable vibrations in this place.

Get out. The weasels were closing in. I could smell the ugly brutes.

Panic. It crept up my spine like first rising vibes of a frenzy.

All these horrible realities began to dawn on me. There I was. Alone in Las Vegas,

  no cash, no blog for the magazine, and on top of everything else, a gigantic god damned hotel bill to deal with. How would Horatio Alger handle this situation?

Stay calm. Stay calm.

The decision to flee came suddenly. Or maybe not. Maybe I had planned it all along, subconsciously waiting for the right moment.

The bill was a factor, I think because I had no money to pay for it.

Our room service tabs had been running somewhere between 29 and 36 dollars per hour for 48 consecutive hours. Incredible.

How could it happen?

But by the time I asked this question, there was no one around to answer it.

That rotten attorney of mine was gone. He must have sensed trouble.

Ghosts of the abyss

Posted: July 18, 2012 in Gonzo Blogging

When the Titanic left its Southampton port in 1912 it was a history maker. As the largest boat afloat at the time and a middle sister to 3 olympic class ocean liners operated by the White star line,

it was a giant on the water but its attention to the details made the inside a place of comfort and peace.

Of course we also know its other history…and being lost for so many years led to a certain aura, a mystical legend lost at sea.

In terms of size this amazing ship was 882 feet 9 inches long. at its widest point it measured 92 feet 6 inches. Total height from its bottom to the top was 104 feet.

To compare its size to a semi modern (though retired) ship, the Nimitz  aircraft carrier is 1092  feet long…..but landing a plane is probably still a bitch.

While out boating, I happened to take a wrong turn (which I have a certain penchant to do) and this myth appears in front of me……almost in a fog. I drifted up from its front side….in awe.

There are probably a few out there who know about this build, but I certainly missed out.

But as we all know, places can just…….go away

as it was with the Titanic

but its here now, and this is a must see 😀

We are lucky to be in a place where we are all allowed a bit of time travel, a bit of whimsy, and sometimes a place is just to magical not to talk about.

Find a great windlight setting and let time fade into the past…..

Navigating the channel

The need for privacy in second life is of course always needed……….don’t get me wrong

With ban lines all over……….. from people who are gone

we would be on our f*ckin boat singing our awesome  boat song

but yellow lines all over….why can’t we play along?

lol ❤

For a long time we have heard about user retention in SL and the need for more mainland purchases, the strange builds everywhere is still what gives SL its charm…..there is a lot of interesting things to see.

There has to be a better way at controlling the ban lines, especially the ones set up by the folks who have no interest in coming back. Free land was a good idea at the time, but free land should also be free to pass through (this is spoken from a SL vehicle addict…..views may vary)

P.S. to the person who has half my non copy Batman car stuck in his ban line…..can you return that? Not sure what sim I was in before I was booted home lol

Sometimes you have to have a little mission, and also a good challenge. My mission was color. Sounds simple enough really, but to  get this to where it needed to be took quite a few shopping excursions and quite a bit of time. When a look gets into my head I don’t like to skimp on the details…..even the unseen eyes from miasnow reflect the colors of the outfit. Luckily I had my fatality boots on from Neurolab inc to get me walking and I took a quick stop over at [sYs]. While on a spree there  I spotted the Psylo purple outfit hiding there (on sale!) and knew I would need that for a start. Being that I tend to notice things I love but have no idea for a place to put them, I remembered a great outfit on the walls of Boudoir that would really work well with what i was picturing. A quick teleport later and I was the proud owner of the Kiss my asp outfit with its vibrant textures. So far so good……..

At this point usually the rest falls into place, but I really wanted to take the gender out and give it a mysterious egde. The Checkmate Hair from Eshi Otawara gave me a place to hide while the Tattoo and skin from Nuuna’s gave a nice contrast in the deep black to offset the colors. To hide the rest of myself deep into the outfit I also added  a few pieces off the Eshi Otawara carved leather catsuit.

To bring a symmetrical balance to the outfit I added the long flowing costarica earings from Finesmith and decided I liked the tassles so much on the hair that I modified The Eshi Checkmate hair for the shoulder pieces. Oh, but what of the oft neglected back? So much work for the front that it needed to have a definition for itself. the perfect last piece was from another favorite shop, Grim bros and the Spine element spikes wrapped this up perfectly.

When you do a lot of looks for just the creative aspect, you need a person who can bring that outfit to life and it was a great privilege to have the chance to work with the amazing Asia Rae who really produced some fantastic  photowork. With  coaching and coaxing  from Linda Jie  we all came together to bring this mission to life. Boudoir, Eshi, [sYs], Finesmith, Miasnow, Neurolab Inc,  Grim Bros, Nuuna’s, Asia, and Linda. A great combination indeed.

Two Irish brothers accidentally killed mafia thugs. They turned themselves in and were released as heroes. They then see it as a calling by God and started knocking off mafia gang members one by one. Willem Dafoe  (we will style up that character in the future) plays the detective trying to figure out the killings, but the closer he was to catching the Irish brothers, the more he thinks the brothers are doing the right thing.  We decided to style up the characters from the Boondock Saints II All Saints Day.

“Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of god
And shepherds we shall be,
for thee my lord for thee.
Power hath decended forth from thy hand
so our feet may swiftly carry out thy command.
And we shall flow a river forth to thee
and teeming with souls shall it ever be.
When I raise my flashing sword, and my hand takes hold in judgement, I will take vengance upon my enemies and I shall repay those who have hazed me. Oh Lord, raise me to thy right hand and count me among thy saints.
In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti”
