Heya Suspiria *waves*

With your experience on the forums I would think you would know better than anyone that ofc that is not ok to do.

Edit: In context from what Peter said, if that was a funny response to a survey about aggression by someone known for making wisecracks then obviously its a not a serious threat. :D

Ishy and others - including me, I think.  Suggested much worse treatment for Wasted and we got away with it.

Meanwhile - it was yet another questionnaire from a student who can't be bothered to use SL for anything but pestering the residents.  Since it was on aggression I think Pep* was just being funny.

As I  understand  it is against Community  standards

Possibly  of  the "picards" rules also  for  being nice in the  forums..  but I am not sure that rule applies to  "The Picards" umm  apparently  not  since it is there.. laffs

I think  people have to  report it  in order for it to be removed.

I did  read it an I  felt sorry for the OP to  be treated like that..  but "The Pickards and  their  associates"  have their own  rules we live  by  :smileywink:

I think it  falls under one if  not  both of these  Community Standards rules.

I do think the  OP was treated poorly and the  person that replied  broke these...



Combating intolerance is a cornerstone of Second Life's Community Standards. Actions that marginalize, belittle, or defame individuals or groups inhibit the satisfying exchange of ideas and diminish the Second Life community as a whole. The use of derogatory or demeaning language or images in reference to another Resident's race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation is never allowed in Second Life.


Given the myriad capabilities of Second Life, harassment can take many forms. Communicating or behaving in a manner which is offensively coarse, intimidating or threatening, constitutes unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors, or is otherwise likely to cause annoyance or alarm is Harassment.

I saw no intolerance there. Some people have "interesting" definitions of "harassment," too. See above. As to whether or not it was a true threat.. How likely is it that this person is going to go smash somebody's windows?


'What the courts have found is that in order for a threat to -- for speech, for words alone to constitute a threat, this is from United States v. Kelner, which is a second circuit case, that the threat:


"on its face and in the circumstances which it is made is so unequivocal, unconditional, immediate and specific as to the person threatened as to convey a gravity of purpose, imminent prospect of execution."'


-- Barry Steinhardt, in his opening statement to the MTTLR Jake Baker debate.
