My Victory Over Griefers

A couple days ago, I was minding my own business on my own land dicking around doing something. And all of a sudden I got caged and orbited out over the ocean on my sim. Of course, being a somewhat savvy SLer, I just tp'd back to my place. My avi was invisible at this point, so I relogged.

When I got back I used my radar to look around and see who could have done this, and I noticed that my neighbor had a couple people over there. Upon closer inspection, I noticed the two guys were playing with a variety of weapons. I IM'd my neighbor and respectfully asked her about it and she admitted it was them, that they were "boys being boys" and that she told them to stop. Being the reasonably patient soul I am, I gave them that. My thought it was more "idiots being idiots," but that's me. :-D

Later on that day, I was on my land again and basically got bombed by these morons....actually one of the morons, who then walked across my land and said Hi. *rolls eyes and mutters "idiots"*

I filed my first AR, banned said idiot from my land, along with the second idiot from earlier, and figured nothing would come of it.

Within the day, said idiot was suspended from SL for 7 days.....rofl! Yay Lindens!!! It made me all tingly in my private parts. I checked the idiot's profile and it turns out he's partnered to my neighbor!! Great!! So he'll be back I'm sure. Oh well....we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. Worse comes to worse, I'll see if my estate owner will ban the idiot from the

Immature little there anyway that we can move them back to grade school and put them in the teen grid?


*counts the number of idiots in this post....*

Was it wrong that I laughed at the part where you got caged? :)

Get a security system. Though, I don't believe anywhere is really "safe" anymore.

Your place is open land, you need to expect wanderers. We have a skybox a couple hundred meters up and someone TPed INTO the cabin yesterday while I was standing there (crying over my f-ed up inventory, but whatever). I'd love to know how they got a LM to our cabin..

In any event, the security system booted them in less than ten seconds. If only I could figure out how to disfigure AND boot them at the same time. LOL

Was this your first encounter with griefers? Just curious.

They are a pain, but can be kind of fun if you're ready for them. ie. can orbit them back. I know, I know...I'm stooping to their level. But somebody has to! ;-)

I live in open land, also. And I know someone may come wandering through. But that's all they do, wander through. LOL Not stop and orbit or cage me. On my land! I don't need to expect THAT!

Some peeps just aren't happy unless they are wrecking havoc. It's just who they are and how they play.

Love the idea of booting AND disfiguring at the same time! wOOt!

"Can't we all just get along?"

Apparently not. hahahha!

It was my first experience with griefers on my own land. And since I gave them warning, the second time I just reported it.

As far as giving them their own medicine, I'm hesitant. LL doesn't differentiate between retaliating an attack or instigating. I don't want to get Although I did recently purchase a Mystitool, so if I need to I can zap em good.

I have no problem with people wandering through, but when they start exploding shit on my land or orbiting me, yeah...we got a problem then.

My new Mystitool can orbit, throw them violently around (which can ruin their attachments permanently,) kill or crush them. I'll have to try it

Any volunteers?

And then I'll do something else with you both.


Joonie Jatho said...

I count only one idiot. *raises her hand...sheepishly.

Crighton Johin said...

Nope, no idiots here...just cwazy people.
