After the house tour event, I went to a club to dance and forgot I wasn’t wearing shoes. A little while after I got there, a man IMed me and said my feet were hot and he wanted to suck on my toes. I quickly put on shoes and thanked him and said my toes and the rest of me are taken.

I was taking a little walk on Heterocera day before yesterday for the first time in forever, when I came across this little train car. So I hopped on it and it turned out to be some little guided tour, changing into a boat or a Jurassic-World-like ball-thing as it traversed water and roads and things, saying tidbits in chat occasionally about some thing we were passing or that some-such place used to be here or there.

I think I rode this thing for a good 45 minutes or so and was halfway up the west coast road when the pod was suddenly swarmed by griefer particles and orbited with me in it. Then the griefer object said something about how the pod maker didn't own the roads and that I was a "manipulated shill" for using it or something. Uh....okay, I guess.

Neither does the griefer own the public roads, file an AR and let LL sort this out.

I wonder if it's the same guy that I had to mute a while back -- he came into a rubber fetish club, joined the group, and proceeded to hit on *everyone* in both IM and groupchat for their feet.

I've been randomly IMed from a couple of groups - one guy offered a TP. Thinking it was probably someone I met a long time ago and just forgot about, I accepted. The place probably wasn't his (it had a picture of a clearly lesbian couple out front when I cammed around outside), that was full of bdsm furniture. He sat on a sex rug and commanded me to sit down and I was like "wtf do you do this a lot?!"

Another asked me what I was wearing, then asked me to put some stockings on for her. I questioned this while looking her groups over - bunch of stocking fetish groups - and she got all defensive about randomly IMing people for pixel sex.

Both of their rhetoric was "it's just SL! It doesn't matter!" but like...consent matters? I didn't ask to be hit up for this shit? Like I'm open to finding someone on SL, and if you want to cyber, you do you, but don't just assume everyone's gonna be a pixelslut.

I did get the name of the griefer object's owner - it was helpfully given to me by the pod itself, which apparently had been scripted to detect such things - and I did not recognize the name; but since we're talking three days ago now it might be too late to file an AR.

But yeah, I have no idea really what the griefer's beef with the pod creator is, or what it's all about, or who is "right". I don't know either one of them. But I do know that I liked and enjoyed the tour, and I definitely did not like or enjoy being orbited.

That pod runs around the continent hourly or so, I can't remember the route number but I do remember the boat transformation down south the one time I took that one.

Grudgemonkey just be back with a new account every ban tho. Not that that should stop an AR party from occurring.

I used to see those when I lived in Funadama and occasionally I'd hop one one and ride. I love the pods, esp contrasted with the otoolemobiles of yore...

lol, one followed me down the road honking, another rammed me into a banline. :D I mean, Otoole tried and it was an interesting effort, that could have been great if she actually listened to feedback.
She was so above feedback - wasn't prepared to see her gift to the grid form other peoples pov.

Those were before my time, I sadly missed those, or was I lucky?

I just plunged through the internet archive looking for the thread but came up empty. There was a lot of drama, a lot of bad neighbourliness, a jerk proud of acting like a jerk.

Found the Point me at the epic threads thread, tho. I'll post it up in the private section of the forum.

One day two years back I was taking a Yavapod tour across mainland and some weird guy out of nowhere IMed me for sex...

My avatar that day:

this cute reindeer
Not as creepy? as taking your alt as a rubber gimped MLP and getting IMs from men, women, animals... All I could do was laugh at the propositions.
