You were warned. You were warned by someone informed by past experiences and scholarly observations in the matter. You ignored it. Meta, this is why the news that was already bad when it occurred on a smaller less-watched virtual world blew up twice as hard on yours - you didn't think to work on blocking/reporting or permissions tools. Now, suffer.

Also: Pool Closed Due to COVID-19.

Do you remember when Google launched their failed virtual world Lively back in 2008? Check this out: I registered and logged into Lively, and within, I’m serious, my first five minutes, my avatar was lying on the floor of a reception area, beaten up by other avatars and bleeding out virtual blood. Lively allowed avatars to punch, kick and hit other avatars with objects and knock out other avatars, causing them to bleed and show damage on their avatar body. This was Google’s idea of a virtual world and my first five minutes of Lively. I deleted my Lively account in the sixth minute.
