WTF? Teen on Teen Grid Suspended (Banned?) for Associating with Adult??

by Alphaville Herald on 27/07/05 at 2:31 pm

The Second Age blog — our window onto the Teen Grid – has had one of its reporters — named “782″ –banned from the game and the forum for associating with an adult. Which of course leads us to ask: why the fuck was an adult in there? Here is the note that the reporter got from Blue Linden:

Blue Linden: Hey 782…associating with adults on the teen grid is BAD NEWS. Your account has been [suspended] by customer support and they are looking into it further Just wanted you to know why you couldnt get on

782 claims he has no knowledge of having communicated with an adult in the game. Thanks to Zero Grace for bringing this to our attention.

    The way I understand it, the only adults present are supposed to be Lindens. Based on what little info 782 supplied, it seems like this might not be the case, as I can’t imagine why associating with a Linden would be against the rules.

    I would have posted a request for more info from 782, but comments/registration is disabled on The Second Age blog, and of course I have no other way of getting in touch. Linden Lab is also incommunicado.

    You know my take-home from all this is that the same Blue Linden that you see in the adult world night after night busy as hell is now stretched thin to work the teen grid too? I would have thought they’d have separate staff?

    I’ve always thought the teen grid was a law suit waiting to happen. The lindens should really consider making the Teen grid a seperate entity with its own coperation, staff, and economic system.
