MC Fizgig Reclaims Seized Land

by Alphaville Herald on 28/01/08 at 12:11 am

Woodbury U critic disappointed in LL, likely to file even more abuse reports

by Pixeleen Mistral, National Affairs desk

“I’d say, stay on the mainland; the idea of clustering and the magic spell of working with your neighbors is just a great appeal.” – Philip Linden

Late Sunday afternoon I sat on the lawn in Furness sim as MC Fizgig reclaimed his virtual land – land that had been seized by Linden Lab last week. After the land confiscation, several sources informed the Herald that the land reclamation may have been due to a concerted program of abuse reporting on the part of a prominent Woodbury University critic – the seldom taciturn Mr. Prokofy Neva. Even more worrying, two residents claimed that the same would-be watchdog’s woofing implied a special relationship with Linden Lab — a chilling thought for those who have disagreed with conspiracy theorist Mr. Prokofy Neva in the past. However, it appears that the initial reports were mistaken.

MC Fizgig: the land is officially back in my hands

Saturday, reliable sources informed the Herald that the Lab’s sudden land seizure was unlikely to be due to one garrulous gadfly’s abuse reports. Instead, the problem was likely due to MC Fizgig’s account originally being marked for “educator: complimentary” status. Previously, this status gave Mr. Fizgig 4000m2 of free tier. Apparently LL was upset that he was still using the free tier – but after a quick upgrade of the account to premium status and the customary land tier payments, all was forgiven.

And so, after spending part of Saturday and Sunday in the disputed Furness sim plot, I was rewarded twofold. Not only did I meet MC Fizgig and the current Woodbury University SL coordinator Madelena Rossini as the disputed land was reclaimed – I was also abuse reported by Mr. Prokofy Neva according to his blog — an abuse report that was justified on the chance that I might have had something to do with a series of sim crashes Saturday evening. Apparently a working reporter in the vicinity of breaking news is enough to suggest to Mr. Neva that heavy-handed press intimidation tactics are in order.

While the disputed Furness sim land is back in it’s virtual owner’s hands, this is unlikely to be the end of the drama in Furness and Ravenglass.

Does self-disclosure make this image fair game for griefers?

In a move to enhance his SLebrity status, Mr. Prokoy Neva decided to self-disclose his own RL information inside Second Life and placed a large picture of his real life typist from a recent story in WIRED magazine just inside his property line next to MC Fizgig’s land.

Adding to the strange atmosphere Sunday evening, a silent Prokofy Neva avatar hovered in the air taking pictures of residents present on MC Fizgig’s land, as IntLibber Brautigan informed the Linden Lab governance team about Mr. Neva’s self-disclosure — and advanced the theory that this makes this particular picture fair game and no longer a TOS violation. Meanwhile, some residents ad-libbed new lyrics for Chamillionaire’s “Ridin’ Dirty”:

Alyx Stoklitsky: Prok’s lookin’ at me
Alyx Stoklitsky: And screenshotting me
Alyx Stoklitsky: And typing.
Windowlic Klaar: trying to catch you ridin’ dirty
Warren Flanagan: they see me buildin
Warren Flanagan: they snappin
Alyx Stoklitsky: THEY SEE ME TROLLIN’
Alyx Stoklitsky: RICKROLLIN’

Ridin Dirty in Furness

I hope Philip Linden was right about the mainland – “the magic spell of working with your neighbors is just a great appeal”, and I’m sure that it will all work out for Ravenglass and Furness — eventually. But for now, the expansion of Ravenglass rentals has been blocked by a banned and now reinstated landowner who reclaimed his plot in Furness. Whatever happens next is sure to be educational.

    This all reeks of something fishy. While Prok is a bloated windbag, I do believe her when she pointed out her email response from a Woodbury staff member in RL to quote that text:

    “At this time, the university does not own or rent space in SL nor has it authorized anyone to represent Woodbury there. We do not and will not condone any behavior that would not be acceptable in real life on this campus.”

    Odd occurrences. I believe that Fizgig is another alt of Tizzers Foxchase and these supposed official Woodbury members suddenly coming out of the woodwork all of sudden is very very odd. Thing are not adding up here one bit.

    Either way the actual name of the RL Woodbury University is being sullied and will further be sullied until they get their heads out of asses and put a stop to their name being used in SL.

    Cool, glad that drama is resolved – though now that the question has been asked, it will always be something of interest. I mean, it was convenient that they looked at his account and found that, then Prok said what she did. But that is an alleged coincidence.

    I also learned that someone who claimed to know the professor in question apparently didn’t know them well enough. Good scoop, Pixeleen. ;-) Maybe next time I’ll beat you. :-D

    In b4 PN uses the picture to slap on their dumb spinning cubes of “lulz” and say things like “PROKOFY’S GIANT ASS WILL CONSUME YOU”, which of course would be truely terrible considering we are dealing with an utterly insane e-transgendered sl land owner here who probably has no idea what actions it is doing or what crap it is spewing from its mouth that has feelings too.

    “I don’t know how much time I’ll have for this, but I think I’ll take Dr. Rosen of the RL Woodbury University at his word and start a watch on this Woodbury bunch next door.”

    Self-PROKlaimed babysitter and enforcer of all things Prok-like.

    Start a watch against them? Paranoid much? You bring it on yourself. There’s a reason people hate you, Prok, and every time you open your mouth you show everyone why. So are the Leninists coming to get you? Hey, Philip Linden was logged in earlier when a sim crashed. HE WAS IN ON IT! Good god, you’re psychotic.

    Willing to start a neighborhood watch, but refusing to change your groups from an open-join model. And then you bitch that people take advantage of it. You really are misguided, daft and too self-righteous for anyones good. You make yourself a bigger target every time you open your mouth. So do you shut up? Hell no! You get louder!

    I’m still in your group. I still have bugs in Furness. You are truly psychotic.

    Hail Lenin.

    Ah, the Herald’s journalistic standards! The original article, wherein Prok was accused of being a member of the FIC and the sole person responsible for the confiscation of somebody’s land, has been shown to be completely baseless. Does Prok get an apology? Does the Herald issue a retraction? “It appears that the initial reports were mistaken,” is all Pixeleen can say? No mention of the article published by the Herald that made the accusations in the first place? Why not just give us the old “mistakes were made” cop-out? The Herald used to be at least somewhat informative. Now it seems to be just a rag used to attack people. In the very article that should be correcting the absurd misinformation already put out by the Herald and apologizing for accusing Prok of whatever silly crap he was accused of, the Herald takes the opportunity to publish that photo. All I have to say is “ick.” And now I’m going to take the Herald out of my bookmarks. Ick.

    In that first picture, I don’t think “stretch textures” is the option that’s needed. I think “stretch prim to fit Proks fat ass” would be much more suitable.

    Look, it’s a picture of her feeding her cats. What kind of cat food do you serve to your conservative, republican, anti-Leninist felines?

    Score one for Woodbury. We’ve become a meme now, not a place. Thanks Prok!

    Assuming that is Prok, she’s wider than I am by quite a bit. I’ll post a pic to prove it too. I just won’t put it on a giant prim on my land as if to go “HAW HAW!!! I was featured in a paper magazine! I pwned you all!”. I’ll just post it on Yahoo or something.

    Given my experience with Prok, I can’t say s/he doesn’t deserve every bit of this. There’s a reason people grief Prok and it isn’t because s/he is an innocent little lamb.

    And yes, I DID AR Prokofy there, for encroachment, disclosure, and broadly offensive content. The “broadly” part is obvious, and the “offensive” part could either be the nausea one sees at proks backside, or perhaps the public acts that some /b/tards were performing with their e-peens on the image. Either way, if the boat cover fits….

    The disclosure charge was on the off chance that that behemoth in the kitchen is not Catherine A Fitzpatrick, or whoever was running Prok this evening was not her, and to ensure the G-Team verifies that she did, in fact, voluntarily disclose her real life image.

    An added bonus of this disclosure now is that the 2nd offense to justify Tizzers Foxchase’s permbann has now been eliminated. We shall now push for reincarnation of the martyr to SL.

    @nada: Hi-fucking-larious.

    Trust me, it isnt Tizzers Foxchase. I’ve been in a chat with Tizzers, MC, and Madelena before, over voice, and I’ve also talked to Fizgig Over the phone as well. Trust me, he’s real.

    Also, the reason most people troll Prok, because prok is a loud-mouthed, knee-jerk reactionary blowhard that would be better suited writing stories for Fox News instead of playing SL. It’s nothing but conspiracies with this person. I’ve actually tried to be nice to prok and have a civil conversation, only to be ignored and added to a parcel ban list.

    Just standing on Fizgig’s Furness lot got me added to all the neighboring parcel banlists prok owns.

    No doubt I’m “in on the evil bolshevik conspiracy” as well. amirite prok?

    @ tenshi

    because they’re drama queens who make idle threats. Just like the whole of SL.

    hoping someone will throw them a pity party and buy them a hugbox; Which is mostly the reason they’re on SL to begin with. It’s also why the “griefer threat” is such a “threat”

    People are butthurt drama queens who like to come back for more. Which is why the Herald is still around. It gives SL users what they honestly want. drama.

    Have to admit it is entertaining to watch other people cry over stupid, mundane shit that has no value in the grand scheme of things. Meanwhile, in reality, wars are being waged, personal freedoms (in the US) are being taken away daily, poverty is a problem and unemployment is up. Sitting on someone’s e-lawn really eclipses all that, don’t it?

    1. Wired Photoshopped my kitchen. They also used various techniques to make me look wider than I am, including urging me to put on a large shirt.

    2. Putting up fire to fight fire isn’t “disclosure”. If a picture is not on the first life profile, if the information is not on the first life profile, it is not fair game for discussion and use in SL — full stop. Intlibber is just fisking and haskelling. Disclosure is using peoples’ images against their will, that are not in their first life profile.

    3. Nobody is mistaken. He never heard back from MC Fizgig, the professor he contacted. But I wrote to Dr. Rosen, the head of the department, and got the response that nobody is authorized to rent or buy land for Woodbury or represent Woodbury in SL at this time. So I have to conclude that these people are still operating in an unauthorized manner or, based on some information I’ve received from another source, that there is a division within Woodbury itself about how to handle the Second Life presence, and Clift has tried to force the hand of other people by this action.

    4. I’ve AR’d a number of Woodbury “students” for disclosure, which indeed they have engaged in; I don’t recall AR’d Tizzers lately, and we all know that the disclosure that got her the permaban, evidently, was related to Venkman, and not me. So nice try in distracting from the real issue, and disturbing admission that Tizzers, who is a known, recidivist griefer, stalker, and harasser in RL and SL, is a “martyr” according to the Ancapitstan religion. Eek.

    5. I could also add that this episode shows a split in Linden Lab, too, about how to deal with Haskellian griefers. That’s disturbing, too.

    Just like the fridge people.

    SL isn’t your personal apartment complex or home owner’s association prok, neighbors are bound to be different, or people you don’t like. grow the fuck up.

    In b4 PN wants attention. I’m talking about newfags. Get LL to start banning people with shitty spelling and stupid fetishes. Sure, they’ll cut out 99% of the population, but the remaining community will have almost no drama.

    AR for “disclosure” ? Posting your own photo in-world is not disclosure. Revealing RL information of another resident is disclosure.
    I stand by Prok on this issue. She posts facts based upon reason and common sense. The Herald is simply trying to legitimize the phony SL presence of Woodbury within SL. The Herald’s motivation is to popularize their griefer friends and “poke Prok” in the process.

    Real universities within SL are operated by professionals. This phony Woodbury gang are acting like buffoons. Their profiles and avatar choices are all I need to see to know they are a sad farce. Posted by Razrcut (Formerly Lao-Tzu)
