Yeah, I don't agree with how HiFI has handled this. Sansar is MUCH better in supporting chat users (VR users can now see text chat in their headsets).If you're wearing a headset you have to, plus High Fidelity deliberately makes Chat hard to use... you have to install an optional program, it doesn't automatically pick up your HF identity *or* display name, and so on.
This still exists at ahern-sometimes.I remember when I started in SL, and I actually did hang out at ahern - a lot. and it was nowhere like infohubs are now.
it was just loads of people hanging out, chatting, and sometimes being goofy.
mind, that was 12 years ago or so.
No this is something else. Jesus said, "The poor will always be with us." Likewise, the trolls will always be with us. There are trolls in Shakespeare's plays, Iago being the prime example.You're over a decade late with that observation.
Actually, there have been whole forums and in-world groups dedicated to trolling and content ripping "for the lulz" where people share their tales of victory, stolen items, hacked viewers, and griefing tools . And yes, they've been around for 10+ years. Even the comparatively "benign" infohub trolls that self-reinforce each other, competing for lulz, have been around at least since '06.The difference is, these people were shunned, not celebrated. Ten years ago, there was no such thing as a famous, hero troll. They didn't brag about their exploits to cheering crowds.
