Here's a story of "Bloody Lena" as she calls herself -- and with good reason.
I rent out little stalls in Refugio for people who don't want to put up full-fledge stores and want to put out only 10 or 25 prims. It used to be good for Slexchange boxes and now people use it for vendors mainly. They used to have their own dedicated 96 m plots, but when the Lindens changed the search/places ad system so that you couldn't make ads on such small plots (and with good reason, to stop ad-farming, which I supposed), there was no need to keep them as dedicated plots for search anymore so I merged them to make it easier to manage.
But that means sometimes those boxes are in the whole commons when I look for stray prims, and perhaps a new tenant I didn't realize rented there isn't recalled. In any event, that explains why I returned...four prims...of this Leena Hirvi by accident. But then I double checked the stalls and saw she was a new renter, immediately contacted her and apologized and immediately added a day's rent. That seemed fair.
She then couldn't remember where she had rented and hadn't made herself a landmark, as most merchants, including myself, do when they rent a stall somewhere.
So I sent her a landmark that I made on the spot, but perhaps it sent her to 128/128 or something, because she couldn't find the box, even though she landed on the sim and should have seen the plaza where she rented. Instead of just asking for a TP or a manual refund on my side, she flew into a rage and insisted that she would boycott me and urge all her friends to boycott me.
When people do that to me, I fight back. Indeed, I have a long history of publishing abusive "rental dementia" situations like this precisely because in the antagonistic atmosphere of Second Life, we have no recourse to get people's bad behaviour to change except the deterrence of publication.
I live in one-party consent New York State, and my profile warns that your abusive conversation is grounds for me to publish your chat. And I do. This is most certainly NOT an offense on a third-party site, i.e. outside of Second Life, because Linden Lab cannot legislate outside their own servers. And real-life law really does trump their TOS on something like this and I'm sure they wouldn't want to put it to a court test.
Hi, sorry I returned your prims by accident when I was cleaning up the commons. I am adding a day to your rent, just put them out again, sorry [2012/07/09 01:19]

Prokofy Neva: Not sure what you mean not find? I sent you the landmark. You can get a refund there by clicking the box. But it's ok to stay [2012/07/09 22:01]
Bloody Lena (leena.hirvi): User not online - message will be stored and delivered later. [10:20] Leena Hirvi: (Saved Tue Jul 10 02:25:18 2012)yes, you send lm to middle of something - i ask lm there where it box was. Haha, i made note to my self and it says never use ravenglass rental anymore because owner return objects with no reason and not wanna help find place where rent box was. I sell things aound SL but never ever use you services anymore. And whenmy friends asking my where is good rent office i warning them of your place. [10:22]
Prokofy Neva: O dpm [10:22] Prokofy Neva: Tjat [10:22] (typos)
Prokofy Neva: That's just crazy, I don't "return objects for now reason," I simply returned *4 prims* of yours while cleaning the commons because your boxs prims happen to show up on the commons, it's not deliberate or mean. [10:22]
Prokofy Neva: I immediately apologized and immediately added a day's rent to your box. [10:23]
Prokofy Neva: I then sent you a landmark that I made on the spot. perhaps it didn't go to that spot but to the 128/128 landing mark, it happens [10:23]
Prokofy Neva: Your response is completely uncalled for and unreasonable [10:24]
Prokofy Neva: So when people harass and threaten me over nothing like this, when I've done everything to address the situation, they find they get publicized and blacklisted and "do not rent to" right back.
You are warned...
