Beware: Paintball Firing Furries

Only in SL can you start with dead hookers, then move up to virtual hookers

I watched the CSI:NY episode “Down the Rabbit Hole”. Which if you are in some other form of hole, you would know is part one of the CSI:NY Second Life episodes. Part one aired Wednesday, part two will air in February. Some of the things that made me smile:

Apparently, you can be either gender or something called a “furry.” These furries, as they are called, are easily seen as “griefers.” Usually armed with paintball guns that cover avatars with paint. If an avatar is hit too many times, they disappear down a hole and they can leave their shoes behind.

If you happen to track down the griefer in real life, you might find him lying dead at his PC, a .45 through the head. (Wait a minute….New York….griefer dead….a handkerchief with PN on it. No, no PN handkerchief)

If you want to change clothing, then you must go into Edit Appearance.


“Calling Cards” are actual cards lying on the ground. But be careful. They might be an invitation…to DOOM.

People have love affairs in SL. Including congressmen. Who knew?

There are gladiatorial arena fights that are required to gain access to certain land. And you can even use the severed head of a defeated avatar to fight off your other combatants.

But you still have a noob walk.

Even if you have all of the coolest weapons.


And you never need things like Search.

Overall, Second Life looks a lot cooler on TV then it does on my computer, which may lead to 2 million slightly disappointed users when they first log in.

Looking for new residents to comment, I found many silent PC’s. To my thinking, it truly is 1995 all over again. People just saw Sandra Bullock in The Net and now they are too afraid to talk to anyone in this strange new world.

Of course, in true SL fashion, when I went looking for CSI under Search Places, I find as the number two spot, ! Sexy World with skins. shapes, escorts and newbies. Welcome to Second Life CSI fans.

    CSI fans in general don’t strike me as creative or otherwise compitent types (CSI is corny as hell to anyone who knows even the most basic facts about forensics) so I don’t think there’ll be a whole lot of resident retention from this venture.

    However, the fact that CBS is putting it’s name behind SL is pretty cool because it’s someone “legitimate” not buying into the “SL is all about sex and terrorism” negative hype. They’re turning that same hype into a positive thing!

    Either way >yawn<.

    A griefer dead at his PC with a .45 through his head? And the crime committed was… what? Littering? Fugeddaboudit.

    Move along! Nothing to see here, you lookey-loos!

    It was still kind of impressive that Second life got a full mention on a very popular Television series. Recently a similar Idea was produced by NBC’s Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. The Crime involved a Virtual Reality world cald Another Youniverse. It was quite obviously a nod to SL… Right down to the Ageplay and the Strippers. I would actually go so far as to say Another Youniverse is more like Secondlife, then the Second life on CSI:NY.

    I saw the SVU episode as well. While a person owning a cybersex club, while rarer today on SL, was accurately portrayed on that episode, some of the false tension in that episode, like the surprise at seeing the sun rise at night in Another Youniverse wasn’t as smileworthy as seeing Taylor blast a giant skeletal monster away with a yellow energy burst and walk away like a noob in the CSI episode.

    This is as my Master told it to me and now I tell it thee.
    There are a billion names of furfaggotry! A billion kinds of furries that slither and slime and defile the land and sea and wind. Each furry is a kind of sin spawned by the internet’s evil. And that internets is very sinful there are many of these damned furfags and their power is great.

    As the purpose of all things in nature is to increase so it is with the furry. They would we joined them and so they seek to overcome us. In alien forms they assault us. In sleep they come to spread doubt and fear among us. They would corrupt our hearts and see us yiff too. Trust them not nor suffer them to live.

    For each furfag destroyed is a soul freed from eternal bondage. Each mortal furry life extinguished is a /i/nsurgent soul raised to glory. Thus our eternal destiny is written in the blood of the furfag.

    With box and tampon destroy the furfag. With pizza and koran smash the furfag. With credit card hacks and searing mormons scatter the furfag to the stars. With gore and dataforce and bandwidth raep, with hax and AIDS and jehovas, with yellow vans and steroids!

    Kill them! Kill them! Kill them all!

    As my Master told it me I now tell it thee that thou shalt tell others in thy turn.

    “Next time think of something original Mickey, that one was done about two weeks ago.”

    You’re asking one of the channers to be original? These are the same people incapable of even making their own jokes, they have to latch on to whatever meme is most popular at the time and repeat it over and over until someone else declares it unpopular, before they obediently follow whatever the next meme is.

    I told you guys all along, it’s the damn furries who are the griefers. Griefers against your MIND. This is a Prokian conspiracy of the highest degree.

    as with CSI: vegas they have did it again
    they have made furrys out to be evil people i get a STRONG feeling that the makers of CSI REALLY HATE us furrys.

    with csi vegas they made us out to be cross dressing sexual deviants who murder people and well i was hoping they would show us in a positive light….they partly did by letting us kill a killer in SL but still that twat in a lab says to mac “thats a greifer” thats a f**king insult were nnot the greifers were the victims as i found out last night.

    i witnessed a mass attack on furry sims across the grid with self replicating physical cubes covered in “CSI PWNS YOU FURFAGS ” and “CSI WILL KILL ALL YOU FURFAGS” and ” csi + furfags = happy death”.
    i am very insulted and this is just giving greifers more shit to throw at us and to kill off the biggest population in secondlife.

    think of this no furrys no SL
    no furrys no-one to buy your stuff.

    dont beleve me check the names of the ppl that buy yer stuff and you will find out its FURRYS THAT MAKE YOU RICH.

    dont bring furrys down just because some ppl in the csi franchise hates furrys.

    Dont worry Cmarr, they might like to pretend to be fighting a war against us, and pretending to have any affect whatsoever, and make big wins, never fail, and in the end destroy furry fandom…

    The reality is different. They come into a sim, and crash it, five minutes later it’s back up and us furries are happily continuing waht we were doing before they showed up, without giving it a second thought.

    Or they show up at furry cons to cower in the rain with their protest signs.

    And when they’re done with that, proving to their chan buddies they are teh hardcore furreh-haters, they log into their other account, and sit on poseballs in yiff theater, hoping to catch some tail. (which they will never get, been there some time… boys buy yourselves a decent furry av.)

    Whatever bad image furry fandom may have, however people may want us to look, doesnt matter shit. We just do what we do, and don’t care what people think. Biggest haters are secretively furries themselves anyway so why care?

    People care because most furries want people to care, they want people to know about them and push it in their faces, they want to go into every community, and instead of trying to mesh with another community, they push the furry fetish and furry drama in and try to have rules changed to better accommodate them and no one else. I can safely say this because I’ve seen it happen at several forums and communities outside of SL, and some communities in SL.

    Keep your “community” and “fandom” (which is hilarious because people are being fans of themselves) drama away from people who dont care normally and maybe you wouldnt get so much bullshit.

    Also, reacting to trolls is the #1 reason furries get a lot of shit. it’s amusing, really.

    1. you’re not special, drawing and masturbating to a human shaped fox or meshing biologically impossible species together does not qualify you as special or a race. you’re still human, if you werent human, you’d probably be fighting for your life in the woods too much to care about the internet.
    2. Most people dont care about what happens in the furry fandom. Just like how many furries probably dont care about shit that isnt relative to their interests. So why drag your shit and push it in peoples’ faces? I’ve been a victim of people thinking I care and get violent when I tell them I dont care.
    3. People are going to laugh, deal with it. Also, darkfoxx, your reaction is what trolls thrive on, dont even respond in the open.

    If you understand the basic concept that not everyone cares about what you get off on doing, then your life will be a lot better, and will make many of ours better as well.

    otherwise, yiff in hell.

  16. PN = Closet Furry

    Nov 2nd, 2007

    Chmarr, its been conclusively proven here in SL, that PN griefers are closet furries. The PN elected Windowlic Klaar and Farsuka Botha to be their leaders, only to find out each was a closet furry. Like RL politicians getting outed as gays, it seems every PN gets outed as a furry after they are elected, typically by other closeted furry PN who lost the election.

    Current PN leaders name is “^ban^”. I heard IntLibber is offering a 10,000 L$ reward to whoever can provide photographic proof that ^ban^ is a furry too. The scuttlebutt is out there he is, c’mon SL, “your world, your imagination”, start digging.

    “Keep your “community” and “fandom” (which is hilarious because people are being fans of themselves) drama away from people who dont care normally and maybe you wouldnt get so much bullshit.”

    hmm. I actually think it’s hard to keep our own furry stuff to ourselves, when it’s the likes of you and your closet furry PN buddies who insist on coming to our sims to do anything in your power to let us and the world know how you feel about us.

    We aren’t throwing it in your faces sweetcheecks, we woulndt want to, but it’s you guys who keep looking for it. Even visiting furry cons to do so…

    maybe you do because well… you’re a furry yourself?

    Come out the closet, it’s more fun on this side :D

    See you next time in the furry clubs, trying to score with a fox.

    And PS, I can indeed confirm that this ^ban^ person is indeed a furry, and has a furry account which he uses to frequently visit the more well known furry sims.

    @Artemis: You DO know that the channers are responsible for creating about half the memes in existence that they “latch on” to, right?
