Yes, your eyes have not deceived you. I wrote a blogpost last night, and then deleted it this morning, after the person who was the target of a truly disgusting, sustained campaign of bullying, both on the Sansar Discord and in Sansar, asked me not to be quoted. As I result, I have deleted that blogpost this morning.
Let me tell you something about myself.
But if you attack someone I consider a friend, I WILL RAIN DOWN HOLY HELL UPON YOU. And that’s exactly how I felt when I wrote that blogpost last night. I was furious.
Bullying and harassment are COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOURS in any social VR platform or virtual world. I now know details of both sides of the drama (the bully and several people he has harassed, on his own and using alt accounts), and I was quite prepared to leave up an account (with anonymized transcripts) to show exactly what happened, and why I helped start a flamewar on the Sansar Discord last night.
Yes, I attacked the bully, mere hours after I wrote a lengthy, eloquent blogpost about interjecting “manners, civility, and etiquette” into the Sansar community. I am a vigilante and a hypocrite, and I am a part of the very problem I called out in that blogpost.
