Something just occurred to me. What is to stop some child hating user from setting up a M sim, or even a G sim, luring a bunch of child avatars there, changing the rating to A and then ARing everyone there? Technically they are involution of the new rules coming up now.
I'm doing SLB21 and I think that's going to be my blow-out for SL. There really isn't anything stopping folks from doing that and between my already existing antipathy towards SL and this I think it's time for me to do something else.

I mean, I'm mostly doing other things anyway, this just kinda cinches it.

That's a LOT of work.
It is not a lot of work to some people if they feel the end justifies the means. Over the years I've seen some pretty complex traps laid out to trick child avatars by some hater. Don't underestimate the determination of some crusader if they think they are doing "Gods" work.

Doesn't look like this will be a issue. Sim ratings don't just change instantly. It takes some time for it to go in to effect.

Oh I get all that - ignoring for the moment my weak attempt at humor and the fact that this alleged pedophile would need to be willing to self-out, I have a hard time believing that any group of antisocial insects like these could ever accomplish anything positive as a group. Most of them have seen clips from ""To Catch A Predator" and know exactly who Chris Hansen is since he pops up in their nightmares so often (hopefully). Psychologically, I think most of them would rather just hide in the shadows like cockroaches. Self protection before publicity.

My post isn't about pedo or ageplayers. It's about crusaders. There are people on the grid that have set a mission for themselves to rid it of every child avatar. They will set up complex traps to lure any child av into a position where they can AR them and get them banned. This includes setting up entire areas with a mixture of TOS violations then AR any child avatar that they can lure there before that avatar can realize where they are and teleport away. They don't care if they are catching age players or innocent people.

It all reminds me of the Usenet Binaries Crusades of the eighties and nineties.

I believe it. There are people in this world who get off on this kind of self-righteousness and that compounds with common moral panic around children. ...and then there are trolls who'd want to get people in trouble even when they know it's bullshit.

This reminds me a bit of the JLU's vigilantes and the "anti-woke" neofascist campaigners.

I completed this over the weekend.

Second Life Marketplace - Panic button

Basically, it's a hud that will TP you to a "safezone" based on what the maturity rating of the region is. It also monitors the region you are in and if it gets changed to a rating above what you have it set to it will take you to your "savezone" automatically. As the name states it also a panic button, clicking on it will take you to your 'safezone' automatically.
