came across an acute case of ODE (online disinhibition effect) today. the subject: captain crazy, aka: vengeance.ethaniel is an ass of epic proportions …at first impression. well put it this way; he has his mute gun loaded with his pixilated finger is on the hair trigger and seems to delight in alienating any acquaintance that rubs him the wrong way. as stated in his picks:
1. Why you’re muted…
Okay so yeah basically i don’t like it when people go around with voice chat disabled.. I prefer to talk using my voice not a bloody keyboard. Therefore by having voice disabled you are stopping me from expressing myself as a human being.. So in return i merely mute you in order for you to lose your ability to express yourself via text chat. It’s only fair.. You may see this as mean BUT i have as much right to mute you for not using voice chat as you have to choose not to use it. I mean if you’ve been here almost as long as me and you haven’t figure voice chat out then you’re probably unworthy of an intellectual conversation with my any way.. If anything you’ll have gained my pity.
I’m an artist and a writer so i am very expressive and love to talk to like-minded people… If you can’t do that then i wont even bother trying.
This also includes PEOPLE WHO HAVE VOICE ENABLED BUT CAN’T HEAR ME!
Here’s how it happened, trying to make it short… strolled into the hobo’s railroad infohub cozied up to the fire and said hello to the cast of interesting avies present: an octopus, a guy with blue skin, a new friend with slider hair and this dude with all kinds of steampunk-ish attachments (LOTS of them). Got involved in a private chat and out of the blue I get a message that cap’n crazy has muted me. Not that I care so much but wtf right?
It’s a quirky thing this social soup called second life, mine just came with a hair in it today. I will complain to the chef… the notecard sent to him via an alt:
Dearest Captain Crazy
Our paths crossed today and I must thank you for muting me (Zoli Weezles) at first encounter. It saves me the expense of your immense ego from overpowering my second life and completely removes any taxing social interaction that we may possibly have. Good luck on your mediocre art and your rise to fame as an avatar that cannot type. So glad you figured out voice chatting, it’s a great boon for idiots who like to hear themselves talk. You may want to seek medical help for your lack of focus, the undiagnosed asperger’s syndrome and an obvious case of attention deficit disorder. You are also under the illusion that you are an intellectual, expressive human being. You sir are a petty little child that needs constant accolades and attention to feel good about yourself. Its also worthy to note you have control issues. In other words: a spoiled brat. You have my pity.
You DO have a right to mute anyone you’d like. You also have to option to behave like an adult in a social context, you have simply chosen not to.
Sincerely Zoli/Timmie Weezles
