Linden Lab finally published a tweet Monday that debunked the account "Danger Linden" -- which has been bedeviling me with deadpan boilerplate remarks out of the customer service handbook in response to my mounting protest against griefer alts returning to Second Life.
So the Twitter account "Danger Linden" is fake, although it was starting to sound more real even as it was being debunked -- I called a "smarm alert" when I saw the description was changed to something about "helping" Rodvik with "communications" and when I saw he was having an office hour.
The SLURL for the office hour leads merely to the Violet infohub -- frequented by the re-rolled alts of various banned Woodbury/Wrong Hands goons. I found it filled with the usual collection of idiots and a few clueless newbs.
"Danger Linden" was probably the work of Tizzers or Codizzo hax or Meif Ling or one of the other goons who also made the now-offline Sandvich sim.
It's been a day for bad publicity at the Lab, with "Danger" pretending he was having an office hour this week, Sandvich being seized and sparking the usual griefers' hornest nest and griefer-empathy on forums, and Yoz getting canned. But they'll survive.
Yes, this ridiculous Reddit thread is getting 21,000 views for the screenshot of the closed Sandvich sim -- although only 299 comments, so it is not really the "hordes" threatened by Linden fanboy Reed Steamroller (aptly named).
But you know something? These things are seen by...hundreds of people. Not tens of thousands. The hits on the new products of LL that resemble Minecraft are getting many more tens of thousands of views.
