Maximum OOM-age: February 2007

Maximum OOM-age

I have Mana-Management issues...And it's driving me to drink.

If Moonfire Spam has taken you to the same place as me, good luck.

Don't look at me for more pots, 'cos I ain't got none left and my Innervate's on CD.

Fire in the Hole!



Sexyteen Robson might very well be a middle-aged woman in RL trying to resurrect her youth in SL, but since the very nature of this game obscures the real identity of all players, there's no absolute way of telling for certain.

Nothing gets karate-chopping and fang-baring AOs activated as quickly as the bête noire of Premium members - profiles with the 'no payment info on file' insignia.

Although many Basic members do end up bearing the brunt of this animosity, it has to be noted that not all of them are unverified entities. As a resident which falls under this category, I have to point out that I spend almost as much Lindens (possibly more) on my in-world pursuits as Premium Second-lifers...and very little of this comes from camping.

Well, that old cliché is true...You have to speculate to accumulate.

The resentment of verified members can be justified, however. Apart from the obvious (such as the prospect of unknowingly engaging in BDSM SIMs with a precocious child), there is all that lag to consider...This mass exodus from 1st to 2nd has got to be very heavy on the grid...

I'd wager that a large proportion of residents online at any one time are really spotty kids seeking cheap thrills because they just haven't the patience to wait for the day they can graduate from Teen Second Life...a lack of discipline which only vindicates the prohibition of under-18s in SL. Personally, I find it debatable as to whether that age is an appropriate cut-off point, but that's another matter entirely.

Let's face it, Second Life doesn't have any official form of strict policing, so it requires some self-control.

We see enough noob activity going on in-world without juveniles trying to spoil the gaming experience for everyone else, simply because they don't know what is or isn't bad form...And there's always the one...

Not so long ago, Davey got jumped on for no bloody good reason whatsoever.

Davey Greene the Aerolite DJ

He was testing out a cute monkey AV which he got for free (see pic above for his usual look), and went around asking some residents if they had any bananas, when some guy (later joined by his girlfriend) started with the abusive name-calling and bitch-smacking...They were virtually sinking their claws into him, so there was a diaspora of body parts and blood (mostly Davey's until I came to the rescue) flying everywhere.

Granted, it was a bit daft of Davey to have been doing that and doubly so, since it's never a good idea to approach anyone sporting blood-stained apparel and sharp talons when you haven't got shields on...

...Thankfully, I did.

So there was a bit of a role reversal going on that night which saw yours truly defend Davey with a few magic spells and caging devices...A particularly novel situation since David's usually the one who bails me out in RL.

Jesus, I really kicked ass that night!!!

Lyondra Eun the Witch Bitch

YAY!!! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

As far as I'm concerned, the only good thing that came out of that scenario was the discovery of some pretty cool scripting. Those tits didn't even know what hit them (took them quite awhile to work out who as well).


But seriously, the attack on Davey was unprovoked. Any normal person (ok, as 'normal' as can be for someone who spends a percentage of his or her time in SL) would think he's being a bit silly, but not offensive, and hardly deserving of assault.

He's a monkey; it's a role-play game...Get with the program!

Clearly, these people have never heard of Eddie Izzard either.

Anyhow, back to the real issue at hand...

I don't believe there's a good excuse for anyone not to get verified. All SL gamers should do so, if not for any other reason, then based on principle alone. This method may not be fool-proof (I have to admit it's not all that difficult to nick Daddy's credit card), but it's a start in the right direction...

Everyone benefits from it, and the risk you take is no higher than opening a RL bank account in the high street. Second Life takes no money from you without your prior consent. However, if your main concern is resisting the temptation of buying Lindens, that is not anyone's problem but your own.

An aggressive campaign to get everyone verified (or GEV for short!) is long overdue, but since no one thus far has got the balls to do it, I will...If you want summat done, you gotta do it yourself.

There is only one objective:
Basic or Premium - All accounts should be verified...NO EXCEPTIONS!

IM me if you want to sign the petition...Leaving my 1st life in the next few minutes, but you can always reach me wherever I am, even in RL.

...Now morphing into Lyondra Eun.
