Bots Turfed Out of Liberty Island S

Letters to the Editor

I’m writing about the article entitled “Bots Make Mockery of Traffic Statistics” on March 23, 2008 for the Second Life Herald.

My name is Doran McCullough and I, along with Organa Ashley, just purchased the land written about from Harold Malpholisto. I want to say, unequivocally, that under no circumstances will we ever use or condone using bots to artificially inflate traffic. We had no idea this was even going on when we purchased this land, and can’t disagree with the use of bots strongly enough.

We are currently in the process of moving our mall and nightclub over to the land, and have always took the stance that bots are to be booted. I encourage all Second Life citizens to come down to the Oxygen Mall and Nightclub, and verify this for yourselves. Organa and I both agree completely that the process of artificially inflating traffic numbers by the use of bots ruins your reputation as a mall owner, disappoints vendors, and ruins Second Life for all citizens.

I would love the opportunity to talk this over with you, perhaps as an interview, or whatever you think best. Great work on the Second Life Herald, I’ve been an admirer for a while now. Keep up the good work, and please send me a notecard or IM letting me know you got this and if you would want to talk about it anymore.

Co-Owner Oxygen Mall and Nightclub

    I’ll come visit not because I don’t believe you but if you got rid of a bot farm (even if it meant giving the bot farmer money for his land) I’m happy to support you’re mall.

    There must be some kind of confusion about all this and I would personally like to see the record set straight about it.

    Harold Malpholisto is an avatar whom I have known not only to be helpful but one who goes out of his way to be a blessing to others.

    Those of the Oxygen Mall and Nightclub I have known to be very friendly and always eager to build good relations in Second Life.

    I have known their avatars and their businesses and have honestly found these among the friendliest of Second Life. It doesn’t seem characteristic of any of them to seek to use artificial means to inflate traffic numbers since they focus so much and well on building good avatar relationships.

    Some kind of misunderstanding about this, I think, must be going on.

    An SL Mall? You mean the thing with “cubicles” for the vendors? Barf.
