furry griefer threatens Peter Ludlow

A series of shocking interviews with Alphaville Herald founder Urizenus Sklar’s real life typist (Peter Ludlow) surfaced on YouTube today. Uninformed sources speculate that the sordid videos may have been filmed at the Herald’s offices in Durham, North Carolina.  Yet despite the uncertain provenance of the candid interviews, it is clear that Urizenus was lucky to survive a horrific case of griefing by a furry. When will the outrageous abuse end?

Peter Ludlow (Urizenus Sklar) is interviewed by Mark McCahill on the topic of the migration of virtual paramilitary organizations.

Barbieworld and eye gaze – Peter Ludlow on the topic of data mining in virtual worlds.

Peter Ludlow (Urizenus Sklar) is interviewed by Mark McCahill. Which virtual worlds are interesting? A paradox is observed: as worlds become one-off experiences like books (used to be), books are giving rise to ever expanding fictional landscapes.

    Did I miss something? Outrage! Furry Captured on Video While Griefing Herald Founder!!!? nothing in the videos talk about that.

    Why are you not embedding what ever video you say is out there?

    Don’t make me have to search your youtube, because I really can’t be arsed.

    These three videos are entirely weak, without substance and any deeper context than a miss leading title.

    “Urizenus was lucky to survive a horrific case of griefing by a furry”

    Oh come on your a professor since when did you believe you could be physically hurt in a Virtual world?

    You have been around long enough to know no physical harm can come to you from a few boxes crashing a Sim.

    The real harm comes from who like you said users like the JLU who collect real life and second life data for use to attack others inside and outside the virtual world.

    Anyone who believes Mr Venkman is not a threat needs a lobotomy, and please don’t try to compare a fandom with a few rogue furries who you alleged attacked you for an e-terrorist formation.

    I notice you and Prokofy are romping up some kinda tick tac toe little war game, and I noticed a furrie and I don’t care what side hes on but well you can play with Prokofy all you want, but your friend promised us you would deal with Venkman, and you appear to be letting us down.

    Quit the drama and be the adult you promised us you was able to be and take Mr Venkman to the cleaners.

    If you can’t finish what’s on your plate don’t ask for seconds.

    OMG! Herald Sensationalizes Title To Get Attention Of Most Boring Article Ever!

    Seriously, I almost fell asleep during the second vid, no wonder the cat left and the cat was the most interesting part.

    Guys, can you try to title an article what it truly is without misleading readers? I can see most will just glance at the title, assume (probably what you meant to do),and assume that this is what was going on.

    It is a pretty poor tactic to get readers to even try to listen to that bedtime story. Color me not interested.

    Ok like when I first saw this video for a few seconds, before reading the caption, I thought it was like an interview in a psychiatrists office where you get more privlidges if you show improvement, you know?

    But then i found out its only Peter and Mark going at it again: The griefers come and with them they bring Grief, that elusive elixer which rains down like pollen and creates a healthy balance with that nasty tarry substance known as ‘Irrational Exuberance’. This healthy ph-balanced fertilizer gives rise to furtle soil for worlds to grow in, thick and green, verdant and lush with the essential oils of nature just waiting to be vaporized in the Theatre of the Mind.

    Then the data-miners come, circling overhead like Vultures or JLU and of course they screw down everything in sight. And now you can not move without being monitored. Both your position and velocity are known precisely and that is just not right. Just hanging around in the wrong place at the wrong time can get you banned.

    So everybody takes off. Like a locust swarm blotching out the sun. Pheremone signals propagate throughout the whole land and suddenly all at once, Whoosh, there they go… up, up and away… total exodus, but to where? What were Heckle and Jeckle talking about anyway?

    Hmm, hyperspatic links, popping here and there, coming and going, pushme pullyou, the system is less energetic when domains of opposite polarity alternate… it gives off less annoying static when fully grounded, there must be a second derivitive here if only I could… wait… I know… Its OpenSim… They are talking about the future when everyone will have their own OpenSim worlds and they will all have the Hyperspace Transport System plugin loaded and each world would be like a book just waiting to be read and we can pop back and forth…

    Coming and going, popping here and there, disappearing Cats Who Walk On Desks… Nurse could I have just a little more Haldol please? Just a little?

    Good interview.

    If anybody wants to see Pixie’s face here’s a link to another video on Uri’s channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=op35QRzvi4c

    Funny, I always expected an internet Methuselah like Pix to look older, LOL.

    @Joker: You need to relax a bit. Suing somebody is expensive and time consuming, even if you are morally right. Pix probably has a lot of different things going on. Expecting her to drop everything to take a greifer to court is asking a bit much. It would be great if she did, but you can’t expect her to do that. Also, Pix isn’t the only one who could sue Venkman, so you can’t place all of the blame directly on her shoulders for the injustice of him not paying for his crimes.

    That said:

    What Uri said makes a lot of sense. If what draws people to virtual worlds is the narrative of their group, that certainly seems to bolster the narratologist argument against the ludologists.

    The real question is, how do groups choose what virtual world they want to inhabit? Different people like different things in their virtual worlds, but I know for me, at least, I am not interested in killing 10 rats or whatever. I am interested in using virtual worlds as a platform to create on a deeper level than just grinding out a tank, healer or DPS character. I am also not interested in being limited to being able to perform an action once a day, like in Island Life or any other facebook game.

    What I am talking about here is mechanics. As important as narrative is, there are always mechanics in virtual worlds, and these mechanics should not be completely ignored.

    Once a few early adopter type members of a group have chosen a virtual world as a platform for their group narrative the other group members probably do join that world just to follow their groups narrative. However, there had to be a first something awful member who came to SL and went back to the something awful forum to tell his friends “hey, look, I found an entire virtual world full of lulz cows! Come see!” What inspired that?

    say wut?

    you ….have got…to be…kidding?

    Life is short Uri, you need to get on that. It’s funny enough when you hear the 20 year olds, even 30 year olds saying “…haven’t got around to trick’n out my car” especially when its Evo or STi owners, but life is short brother, and you’re in your FIFTIES! You know? Trick that betty out before more sand falls through the hole man.

    Peace Y

    “I haven’t got around to it” is code for ‘I really don’t give a fuck’.

    You are so right. Any day now I’ll sitting in a Rascal wearing Depends and smoking menthol cigarettes through my trachea hole. I need to trick out my rig while I still can!


    Having you tell me to lay off the doobage is a bit like getting an intervention from Amy Winehouse.

    well you could always transplant parts from the S T i over to the rascal as a last resort. LOL No comment on the Depends part, that was just TMI

    Hath Chariot, Hasten Movement, Onwards & Upwards

    I’ve got a 2009 Forrester that is one of only about five in the country that is an LL Bean Edition (LL. Bean dumped the partnership with Subaru just as the first 2009s neared completion on the line). I love it as it does exactly what I need it to do.

    That said, if you honestly are looking to upgrade your Subby into a performace machine, your only realistic option is to trade it in on a 3-series BMW.

    Mar 31st, 2010

    Beaner, are you ser-i-ous?

    BMW 3 series?

    For fiddy grand?

    What a waste of coin

    Uri can turn his commuter S T i into a raging beast for way less than trading it in for a B eat M y wife&kids W eekly
    and he will have more dough for other stuffs

    like maybe those depends are whatever
