So I immediately assumed that the message from "Bobby Bob" in the comments below my past post about our new Valve overlords -- "guess who's back" and a reference to a new sim called "Sandvich" -- would involve 4chan/Anonymous/Woodbury invading SL despite multiple past "permabans," and opening a new sim.
Reddit has been referenced on SL blogs as making a Valve/Steam theme sim in Second Life named Sandvich.
Looking it over now, I see that means the Woodbury types are mixed up in the Steam thing.
Surprise, surprise! Sandvich is what Russian Americans call a sandwich.
Here's the Reddit thread under an account called "Hissyfits" which is in fact Tizzers. If you go in SL and look at the build and the account, the display name says "Tiz" for "Hissyfits". Duh!
It's in the usual Soviet gigantist dictator-chic style.
I think it's likely the Woodburies used Steam to build up and invade the My Little Ponies' fan group Bronies network -- also Reddit.
Now, why do the Lindens allow things like this?
This would be -- what? -- the fourth sim that Tizzers is being allowed to lease, after prior permabannings on various accounts? How to explain?
The question is whether Tizzers and the gang are just doing this opportunistically, to see if they can "push the limits" with their "art" in making effigies of the new tubby SL Overlord, Valve CEO Gabe Newell, and get away with it under the new regime, and also confuse Steam members coming into SL who will think this is some of home base or "welcome area" possibly OR whether in fact Gabe is chuckling and Rod is chuckling and they are all colluding in this.
As Uri would always say, "In the hall of mirrors that are the Interwebs, we may never know."
