Playing with stats again Hamlet :-P

1) You assume people will know they've had their content stolen.

2) How many Abuse Reports have been filed since then ?

3) How many Abuse Reports are just wild accusations ?

4) How many people have been "hurt" or will be eventually have already up and left SL (e.g. quit)

5) How many of those 208,325 are new signups that are hearing about Second Life because of the press coverage ?

6) How many of those 208,325 are alts being used for nefarious CopyBot shenanigans- as opposed to peeps just playing with themselves ? (probably not that many more than filed reports, if that)

I've been to more than one region lately where the copybot script was running. It leaves a blue auto text which states its intentions, at least on my screen. Also , whats up with the Keep off of the grass !Quit thing, that one is irritating.

I have to wonder how many of these people reporting incidents with CopyBot are actually reporting incidents with CopyBot Deleter gadgets? More than one person I've spoken to in the past week has encountered one of these spamming objects and believed they had run into a CopyBot that was trying to copy their avatar.

I suspect the !quit IM spammers, used to order version 1.0 of the CopyBot (several revisions have passed since then, none of which respond to the !quit keyword) have fooled a lot of people into thinking they were being attacked by an actual CopyBot.

The number of actual CopyBots out of the 50 reported may be much lower than the number of reports.
