Is it really trolling or just someone pointing out the very obvious about people?
why so cereal? geez people need to learn how to take a joke like for real i'm just saying.

If they have a child avatar their referring to there obvious adult avatar partner in the profile as a sexy soul mate for life, why should they not be tarred & feathered as pedophiles. it's fair social justice with a twist of SLU style

TBH I think they're goal of having literally no one harassed when they go to there sim is noble but impossible. Life just doesn't work that way. If harassment was a truly solvable issue we wouldn't still be talking about how to reduce bullying in schools. That said I'm wondering if they have/have considered getting volunteers to act as a security force to eject or remove people who misbehave?

...because if SL's history has shown us nothing else, it's that in-game volunteer/resident police never goes wrong!

There's no such thing as an interactive space open to the public where someone will not be offended by something. Some people are simply unpleasant and others are simply impossible to please. The only way to change this is to change human nature itself, and if you start actively trying to figure out how to do that: you are part of the problem.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of thin skinned people out there.

Just do what hamlet does and delete comments you find unacceptable.

There's a lot to unpack here, most of it wrong.

1)In the real world, if you "troll" in a club or an art gallery, you will be escorted out. It's the same for most forums; any forum worth spending time on is moderated.

2)Some people are simply unpleasant and others are simply impossible to please.

The first group can -and should- be shown the door, and there's a world of difference between 'impossible to please' versus 'wanting polite, adult behavior in the space we pay $300USD a month in'

3)The only way to change this is to change human behavior itself.

Again -wrong. You change this by having and enforcing a set standard of behavior. In other words -moderation. The fault isn't in expecting civil behavior; the fault lies with the company that charges hundreds of real world dollars but does not give the tools for behavioral moderation that even a $10 PHPBB rental has.

4) and if you start actively trying to figure out how to do that: you are part of the problem.

That sentence literally makes no sense. "If you try to solve the problem, you become the problem" lol que?

5)"Unfortunately, there are a lot of thin skinned people out there." ...and they are not the problem; the folks who come in to disrupt and act badly are the problem.

And there's absolutely no reason that Chouchou should allow it to happen on their dime Benjamins.

Just do what hamlet does and delete comments you find unacceptable.
Adults call that 'moderation'; that's how you prevent your comment sections from being buried in viagra ads and white /b/ level nonsense.

All boards do it -even 4chan.

Han Held
white /b/ level nonsense.

All boards do it -even 4chan.


eh, I was going to write "white supremist nonsense" then decided to say /b/ instead -but didn't hit the backspace enough.

Oops

Seem a bit strange response. Juliet talk english very well, so why a translator? And management of sim become LL problem, if exist. Mah.

@Han Held. It hasn't been $300 a month for some time now. It's been $250 and next week goes down to $230. That's still a lot of money for most of us but it has gotten better.

Chouchou (the sim) has been a part of Second Life for more than a decade. Its extension "Chouchou V" was added 9 years ago.

Harassment has been part of SL even longer than that. If harassment was a valid reason to shut down those regions, don't you think it would have happened long ago?

You need to read between the lines of Chouchou's response. Unlike other media, SL hasn't evolved much beyond what it was ten years ago. The band has moved on, and maybe so should you. The time has come to let go.

For multiple reasons, I would advise against accepting Linden Lab's offer to "preserve" those regions. Preservation would be incomplete anyway because the parcel music streams, an essential part of the experience, would be excluded.

For those who wish to remember, the original opening trailers will remain online:

Chouchou
Chouchou V (Memento Mori)

the fact is Liden can do IP bans as that technology readily exists. While it is possible for a abuser to get around a IP ban it would cut down on return griefers alot. Just kinda sucks a few assh*les have to ruin things for everybody else!

@Han Held...So closing the sim entirely if LLs doesn't step in instead of volunteers is a better option? Yeah makes sense.

@ Masami Kuramoto…. While it's true that SL hasn't evolved that much I still think preservation would be good even in partial form. It's a beautiful peace of art that deserves preservation just like any art piece. It's a shame how much art is lost to time in the realm of videogames and virtual worlds because they aren't seen as being as valuable as say a painting and therefore often not preserved well if at all. For that very reason I would highly suggest they accept LLs offer to preserve there work. We really don't need more lost beautiful sims.
