Rolling Eyesores


Here is a post (and the pic above) from Shigeko Tachikawa on My Second Life (here) that I think everyone should read. Shig started ...

The bus got stuck there several days ago. Contrary to AnnMarie's claims, it did not auto-destroy itself either after becoming stuck. [x] AR filed (SLurl)

shigeko.tachikawa By the way... I wonder why there's no response from the lab yet about her (self-replicating in order to circumvent the auto-return) bus stop signs which she dropped at all rez zones all over the mainland.

vick.forcella Since those zombie vehicles run just about everywhere, since she rezzes them from her own land (she must own quite a lot of land), since she attends quite a lot of Linden Lab meetings, I suspect she is Uber FIC and above the TOS.

vick.forcella I guess Noobs will like them, residents that like to explore and drive don't.

shigeko.tachikawa She does not rez them from her own land most of the time. There are her "Bus Stop" signs now all over the mainland and they are self-replicating to make sure there will be a new one in place as soon as the old one is about to be auto-returned. Worthy an AR for abuse of region resources and littering, if you ask me.

vick.forcella Oh. I haven't noticed she uses/ abuses the rezz zones. Worthy of an AR, next time I see one.

uccello.poultry May I publish this thread on my blog, Vick and Shig?

shigeko.tachikawa @uccie: Sure, but it's probably even better to point to the ongoing discussion at SLU, where AnnMarie is even commenting on a few things: http://www.sluniverse.com/php/vb/general-sl-discussion/86077-guess-whos-again-exploiting-mainland.html

vick.forcella I'm ok if you publish Uccie.

vick.forcella She makes monies from those zombie vehicles: http://community.secondlife.com/t5/General-Discussion-Forum/Beware-of-others-spoofing-your-SL-account-in-messages-to-Lindens/m-p/2157101/highlight/true#M124061

uccello.poultry Thanks, y'all!

Correct me please but, isn't self replicating objects what griefers do? If I am correct in that, why does Linden Labs not just ban her signs and vehicles from the grid?

This is so going to be mentioned in one of the LL user group meetings... This littering will have to stop at some point.

Annoying, just annoying. These vehicles are everywhere. During my countless roadtrips on all continents I made quite a lot of photos for my bloggy. And damn sure, everytime I had just set myelf up and was about to pull the trigger, one of her fugly vehicles cam into the frame and ruined everything :(

Yes, it is littering and griefing!
Particularly when you see a whole bunch of her vehicles piled up at some sim border.

And her initial idea to make the grid appear more lively? Pfffrz, there isn't any sadder sight than a lot of empty cars trolling along the Linden routes.

I swear the tanks actually steer to run into vehicles with residents in them. The worst part, I think, is when the vehicles pile up, usually due to running into a ban line, and typically on land without Auto-Return (though they sometimes stick to land with Auto-Return for some reason).

To play Devil's Advocate, though, if the O'Toole vehicles aren't allowed to roam, should the YavaPods everyone seems to like be allowed?

shigeko.tachikawa @uccie: Your blog refuses my Flickr/Yahoo OpenID. I wanted to answer your comment with this: "The YavaPods don't have any of the issues which make AnnMarie's vehicles so troublesome. They stay on the road, they're not physical, they don't get stuck anywhere, and there are far less of them."

It ended it seems, no more O'Toole on mainland!
Made a long journey on bike across corsica and satori without any lag or cross sims problems this Wednesday!
