The Wild, Wild West

Wild Wild West

Modeled by Illargi Dover

This week I was met at the very start of it, with the surprising news that one of my dearest friends and active SL entrepreneur, Illargi Dover -check out her FB page here– had been removed from Facebook in yet another one of their random SL profiles swipes and as frustrating as being deleted and having to redo your profile and groups can be, she was victimized by the Facebook algorithms for a good number of hours, having every account she created after that -even using her RL name- deleted systematically, until they moved on to bigger and better things, possibly another violator of FB’s TOS.

We all complain and throw our hands up in the air whenever it happens -and secretly fear that we may be next- but no matter how much noise we make about the subject and how horrified we are, the cold hard truth is that being spotted and deleted is a risk you take the minute you create an account using your SL name, as it is in clear violation of their terms of service, a number of rules you agree to abide by the minute you initially sign in and start using facebook -in many ways comparable to building a house on an empty lot owned by your government, then complaining when you get spotted and the house demolished-

Facebook does have the habit of shooting first, asking later and social networks -which now includes a large SL membership base- have become something resembling the old west, barely policed and unsupervised, with a lot of free ground for trolls, griefers and various low life forms to do as they please shielded by the comforting shadow of anonymity, words being your main weapon and a society revolving around the web, constantly connected. It seems however that your reward for being good at what you do in SL and attracting some form of attention to yourself is being griefed and reported by those who feel it is their mission in life to “police” FB, reporting pics and profiles they don’t agree with or like.

FB will have to, eventually ease up on their rules around SL profiles -much like google+ did- because as long as there is SL and a direct link to it from within the viewer, SL users will not go away and at the end of the day, these trolls and censors who feel it is in their right to report whomever they so choose will continue to attack and as they say, it is never good to feed the trolls; just smile and wave and carry on with your business, there is no greater triumph in this situation than walk out of it seemingly unaffected.

Give it your best shot, we are not going anywhere.

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
