The TOS Mafia

MafiaWe all have been faced with the recent witch hunt that Facebook seems to be doing when it comes to SL avatar profiles, a few “important” people have been removed or blocked until further notice by the administrators, to the horror and dismay of those friends with the aforementioned or directly affected by the removal in one way or another, heated debates have been started on various posts from the chosen few who have survived the shifting of SL avatar profiles and an small exodus to alternative solutions, mostly focused to SL avatar profiles that are “safe” has begun yet again, something that will most likely be forgotten in a few weeks until the next removal, if there ever is another one.

A point made by one of my contacts today during one of those arguments, is the fact that no matter on what side of the removal you are on, SL avatar profiles are in direct violation of the Facebook TOS, something that you explicitly and tacitly agreed on the minute you created the profile and decided to cheat the system to your advantage, hoping that you would never get caught or that you would somehow become the exception on what seems to be a large community of SL based profiles -and it really doesn’t matter if you make a living out of your SL persona, or it is your pen name, FB has pointed out earlier that there are fan pages for that even if you have gone to the lengths of making your SL name a registered trademark-

Something I do for a living is working for a company, -which will remain anonymous- handling complaints, and 80 % of those are usually concerning TOS and people’s overall ignorance of them, which instantly turns you into a bad guy, just for simply enforcing something that you, as a user or customer readily agreed on, just to enjoy the product or goods; no, it really makes no difference if you didn’t know it, the TOS are there and just because you didn’t read them it doesn’t mean that it will not apply to you at any given time. They ensure that the service provided to you and all people like you is fair and equal to all.

The thing about Facebook as a company though, is that the enforcement of their TOS is neither equal nor fair and seems to be solely based on data, if your SL profile is linked to “some” of your RL info, it’s profitable and has just the right amount of virality to make you someone worth keeping, then you are good and they won’t even look at you funny, which makes it unfair to those less fortunate users that have been forced to take their business elsewhere.

Sadly, when it comes to TOS, there are no grey areas -which is namely the part where all SL facebook profiles exist-, there is black and there is white, period. All we can do is hope for the best and wait to see where all of this persecution against SL profiles leads.
