Dear Gazira Babeli,

Linden Lab individually investigates the circumstances of every Abuse
Report we receive. Following a careful review of our server records and
logs, we have determined that your recent actions violated the Second Life
Community Standards or Terms of Service. The violation in question occurred
on March 20, 2008 in the region of Locusolus.

Violation: Community Standards: Disturbing the Peace, Scripted Objects

Every Resident has a right to live their Second Life. The
use of repetitive sounds, following or self-spawning items,
or other scripted objects that intentionally slow server
performance or inhibit other Resident's ability to enjoy
Second Life are examples of Disturbing the Peace.

The rules of conduct are interpreted with the broadest meaning possible.


No additional action is being taken at this time.

Appeal Process: The decision to issue a warning or suspension for your
Second Life account was reached after investigation of your use of the
Second Life software and service. If you would like to appeal your warning
or suspension, you may contact Second Life Support, in writing, at the
address below:

Second Life Support
Linden Lab
945 Battery Street
San Francisco, CA 94111

You may also appeal electronically by filing a support ticket via the
support portal at http://www.secondlife.com/support/

Thats what you get for disturbing the peace of your own sim...

Bettina Tizzy

I would like to entreat representatives from Linden Lab to visit Gazira Babeli's Locusolus sim and experience her art there.

I realize that these warnings are issued automatically, but if LL realized the magnitude of her work, they would splash her on their home page. Gazira is to virtual worlds what Dali and Bunuel and Bertolucci are to Real Life.

I would especially like to invite Andrew Linden and all those involved with physics in Second Life to drop in and play. Yes... play. And anyone at Linden Lab who enjoys cinema. Or plastic or performance art. Or anyone there with a sense of humor. And the people responsible for the software that issues these warnings.

Fact is, if Gazira could do in Real Life, what she is able to do in Second Life, she'd be on the cover of Vanity Fair, and Vogue.

Nuff said.
