MalkaEShan Posted May 1, 2016 Share Posted May 1, 2016 Hey folks! I'm an anthropology student researching the ways in which "policing" works in SecondLife, both formal and informal. Are moderators and/or land owners considered "police" as far as enforcing their own rules? How have people experiences issues like harassment, spamming, scaming, etc? When you run into issues (harassment, people breaking the ToS, etc) do people generally report it to the landowners or to LL?As for RL police: do they have a significant role in the game? I found some sporadic articles about police from particular countries dealing with issues like pornography and illegal trades being conducted online, but is that common?Please note that should you reply to this thread, your responses will be used in my research. You may however, choose to opt out of a later date. No user(name)s will be named in the paper (will be listed as "Player 1, Player 2", etc), and my paper will not be published or viewed by an audience wider than my Ethnography class. Feel free to ask any other questions you may have regarding my research.If you're interested in being interviewed privately regarding your experiences (so they're not preserved on a public forum like this one and your answers are kept confidential), let me know! I would love to hear from you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
