Police Audit

The Second Life Police Blotter displays the 25 most recent disciplinary actions taken by the Second Life Abuse Team. The date shown reflects when the incident occurred. Since I'm bored and lazy today, we're going to examine each incident in detail:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Disturbing the Peace
Region: Wengen
Description: Prim littering.
Action taken: Warning issued.





Prim littering is usually committed by newbies who really have no idea where they are or that they shouldn't leave prims lying around. To report them and enforce Linden action against them is rather harsh, usually just going up and talking it over works much better and efficiently. How do I know this is a newbie? Wengen is the location of a Welcome Area.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Disturbing the Peace - Camping Chairs
Region: Roseland
Description: Camping chairs.
Action taken: Warning issued.





Camping chairs? Disturbing the peace? WHAT? Was the prospect of people earning L$ by sitting around offending your sense of dignity? Yes, let's wipe that filth off our streets, right? The only other offense I can think of is that there were so many camping chairs that it crowded others off the sim.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Disturbing the Peace: Repetitive Content, Spamming
Region: Jiminy
Description: Repetitive chat spam.
Action taken: Warning issued.





Chat spam? Oh, they just realized this today? I guess when you're busy hitting newbies with warnings and ripping camp chairs out, your day fills pretty quickly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Harassment, Verbal Abuse
Region: Lusk
Description: Verbal abuse.
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.





Ah, sweet justice. I agree, verbal abuse shouldn't be tolerated.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Indecency: Inappropriate Avatar Name
Region: LiaisonLand
Description: Inappropriate name.
Action taken: Warning issued.





How do you issue a warning for this? You can't change your name! Ever! This poor sap will get hit with more warnings and bans for something he can't change. Likely they advised him to create a new account.





This is also on a hidden island. So it was probably another newbie.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Assault, Scripted Objects
Region: Waterhead
Description: Assaulting others in safe region.
Action taken: Suspended 7 days.





Ah, Waterhead. You will notice this pattern of assault, as griefers are increasingly becoming more common. You will notice all receive at most a seven day suspension. This is because the griefers use new accounts, and the Lindens act as if these accounts are brand new and not alts.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Disturbing the Peace
Region: Ross
Description: Disturbing the peace with objects at Infohub.
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.



Another griefing incident.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Assault, Scripted Objects
Region: Adams
Description: Assaulting others in safe region.
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.



Griefing.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Disturbing the Peace, Ad Content
Region: Orientation Island 34
Description: Disturbing the peace with unwanted adverts.
Action taken: Suspended 3 days.



Spammer.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Assault, Scripted Objects
Region: Help Island Public
Description: Assaulting others in safe region.
Action taken: Suspended 3 days.



Griefing.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Assault, Scripted Objects
Region: Sandbox Island
Description: Assaulting residents in safe region.
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.



Probably a moron who didn't get the memo that anything is allowed in sandboxes except shooting.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Disturbing the Peace, Scripted Objects
Region: Sandbox Island
Description: Excessive prim litter.
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.



Another newbie who forgot to clean up after themselves.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Terms of Service: Misrepresentation
Region: LiaisonLand
Description: Misrepresentation.
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.



Ow! Sounds like a Liaison didn't follow the line from Linden Lab. Probably one of them became drunk and had an incident on voice. Or maybe someone scammed their way into Liaison Land.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Disturbing the Peace: Parcel Encroachment
Region: Spinolds Flat
Description: Parcel encroachment with mega prim.
Action taken: Warning issued.



This was probably accidental. It's hard to judge whether your prims are on your parcel since parcel lines are by default not shown. This problem is compounded when you're setting out a skybox.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Disturbing the Peace: Repetitive Content, Spamming
Region: —
Description: Repeated spam in IMs
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.



Ah, more spamming. In the Region of ... Dash? So, someone spammed someone else nowhere? Just kidding, it was in IMs, so I guess it was inter-regional. Probably was a griefer assaulting a rentals agent or land baron.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Second Life: Respect, Pets
Region: Abbey
Description: Testing.
Action taken: Suspended 7 days.



The violation is 'respect and pets'. The detail is ... testing? So, they were testing violation of respect for pets? And that warranted seven days? Here is the problem with this blotter, you can't get any further details. Who knows what the hell this was actually about.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Assault, Scripted Objects
Region: Help Island Public
Description: Assaulting others in safe region.
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.



Griefing.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Assault, Scripted Objects
Region: Explorers Rangeland
Description: Assaulting others in safe region.
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.



Griefing.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Disturbing the Peace: Repetitive Content, Spamming
Region: LiaisonLand
Description: Repetitively spamming.
Action taken: Suspended 7 days.



Liaison Land sure is being targeted today, isn't it? This is what, the fourth or fifth violation there today? Can't they put a rest to it? Maybe turn off building and scripting?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Assault, Scripted Objects
Region: Monty
Description: Assaulting others in safe region.
Action taken: Warning issued.



Griefing.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Assault, Scripted Objects
Region: Sandbox Cordova
Description: Assaulting others in safe region.
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.



Griefing in a Sandbox, probably because someone can't read and thought all sandboxes should be warzones.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Disturbing the Peace
Region: Taedong
Description: Shouting across region with scripted object.
Action taken: Warning issued.



This is rather obviously a test of a known griefing object, namely the objects that spam things like "Philip Linden says: Fuck you" over and over. And only a warning is issued? Didn't it occur to any of them that this was probably a precursor to another griefing event later?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Assault, Scripted Objects
Region: Sandbox Island
Description: Assaulting others in safe region.
Action taken: Warning issued.



Another sandbox idiot.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Tuesday, September 25, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Sexual Harassment
Region: LiaisonLand
Description: Sexual Harassment.
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.



Again, Liaison Land! Can't we leave you alone for three hours without getting into trouble? I can imagine it is something like a revolving door over there, with people coming in and getting banned minutes later.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Date: Tuesday, September 25, 2007
Violation: Community Standards: Harassment, Verbal Abuse
Region: Hyles
Description: Verbal abuse at Welcome Area.
Action taken: Suspended 1 days.



Griefing.
