Electorite Posted May 7, 2016 Share Posted May 7, 2016 a few groups i know have been having a problem probably with a single person who creates avatars and uses these new avatars to harass people and file abuse reports. this makes it hard for SL to stop because i was told something i believe was false. someone told me i am not allowed to even discuss other avatars a person "might" have. i don't see why this would not be allowed. i asked this person to show me where a .Linden wrote or said that users aren't allowed to discuss other avatars a person may also have. so anyway the bottom line is i don't have a good answer to how to stop someone who has been doing this in dozens of sims over months or years. the best solution i have is to put up a sign with instructions at the landing point of the land i own so people can report harassment easily. the harassment by this person should have been stopped by the second life abuse report people figuring out who created these avatars the first time the person impersonated a .Linden representative and somehow making sure this person never did it again. i think this harasser signs up for second life in different locations to make it seem like it's different "households" creating these avatars. i guess this is one of the biggest problems in second life because sims and .Lindens are simply banning avatars and not stopping people who create these avatars from making more avatars. i have a theory to require people to use facebook or twitter logins to sign up for second life, because somehow facebook manages this kind of thing a little (remember when facebook deleted so and so's second facebook account?). i don't think facebook is 100% at it, but it seems like second life doesn't manage anything beyond avatars at all, so second life only bans avatars and not people who make the avatars. this is causing a big problem with "counter" abuse reports and harassment without accountability in dozens of sims (i will not name which sims to protect those groups and businesses from even more harassment). someone told me this person has started doing death threats in instant messages. i told the victim to report it to SL. should they also report it to the police?
