“Punk Ass Pranksta” p0wns Digital Worlds Sim

Prokofy Neva Suspended – The Wrong Hands Banned – Rancor Sim Trashed By Linden Lab?

Friday afternoon, all homes in the Digital Worlds sim were destroyed, the Digital Worlds group membership was decimated, and Chainsword Audion gifted  L$103,000 – his entire account balance – to the ever-popular Prokofy Neva.

How was this possible?

According to several sources, Mr. Audion’s account was hijacked after Linden Lab phone support honored a password reset request, despite the inability of the hijackers to correctly name the e-mail address, the date of birth, or approximate L$ balance for the account.

Chainsword Audion lost his freebie houses but got his money back

But the virtual customer is always right. Undeterred by three wrong answers, Linden phone support posed a fourth question which proved to be a bit easier – name three avatars on Mr. Audion’s SL friends list. Correctly guessing three of Mr. Audion’s associates led the Lab to reset the password for Chainsword Audion’s account, handing control to a player Audion later described as a “punk ass pranksta”.

Perhaps by design, the L$ gift to Prokofy Neva resulted in a suspension of Neva’s account while the Lab investigated the latest developments in the meta-gaming Second Life faction wars. But the respite was short-lived and Neva rejoined the virtual world after a one hour suspension.

I spoke with Mr. Audion about the situation Saturday:

Pixeleen Mistral: apparently Prokofy Neva was off the people list for an hour yesterday after the money from your account was given to Prok
Chainsword Audion: yes they sent all my money to prokofy
Chainsword Audion: and prokofy flipped a shit and had LL give it back to me
Chainsword Audion: what a sweet old lady
Pixeleen Mistral: did you talk to Prok about it?
Chainsword Audion: yes she was upset about it
Chainsword Audion: i figured it would be sorted out by tomorrow and i went and played some san andreas

While Mr. Audion’s virtual currency was returned, none of the homes on the Digital Worlds sim have been rebuilt.

Camov Kalinakov told the Herald that Shiney Sprocket is the only player who can request a sim rollback for Digital Worlds – but Mr. Sprocket has not been seen in-world for months. Mr. Audion was playing his cards close to the vest and told me that he had planned to removed the noobie homes anyway – apparently nothing of value was lost. But the Digital Worlds gameplay may now change.

In the past, Digital Worlds had invited new Second Life players to enjoy free living accommodations – but there was an catch according to one source. After setting up residence and getting comfortable, the new players were turfed out in a slow motion form of griefing that may be difficult to distinguish from some virtual landlords’ normal business practices.

The destruction was not limited to Digital Worlds.

Digital Worlds left desolate

By Saturday morning, buildings in Rancor sim had also been wiped after the Lab swept the sim clean of Ariel Mellow’s builds, leading to speculation that the Wrong Hands were behind the Digital Worlds’ destruction. Rancor is Atlas Saintlouis’s base for the Nicholas faction and a recent campground for the perma-banned Wrong Hands.

According to Ariel Mellow, trouble in Rancor started shortly after StuartM Ontyne paid the sim an uninvited visit last week and followed the visit up with a round of age-verification suspension and account bans Friday. Rancor has a very restrictive access policy – those not on the whitelist are unable to enter the sim. However, Ontyne contractors have Linden-level god powers and were able to visit Rancor despite the sim owner’s access controls.

Chainsword Audion was able to shed some light on the incident.

Chainsword Audion: i got all the money back
Chainsword Audion: it was back by the time i got up this morning
Pixeleen Mistral: How did you find out your account had been compromised?
Chainsword Audion: somebody told me
Pixeleen Mistral: Any idea how your account got hijacked?
Chainsword Audion: yes i know exactly how it got jacked
Pixeleen Mistral: What happened exactly?
Chainsword Audion: exploiting the password recovery line
Pixeleen Mistral: The guys in the Rancor sim said Rancor was wiped by Linden Lab last night
Chainsword Audion: owned
Chainsword Audion: i seem to remember a similar sim full of furries and wannabe griefers getting their ass beat by linden labs not too long ago as well
Chainsword Audion: these things tend to happen to big gay babies
Pixeleen Mistral: Do you know who got your account?
Chainsword Audion: yes a punk ass pranksta named james becher
Chainsword Audion: he doesnt like me cause i used to step on his dick all the time
Pixeleen Mistral: Did he tell you he took over your account? How do you know it was him?
Chainsword Audion: no i doubt he would tell me
Chainsword Audion: i heard from my homeys

Camov Kalinakov in the Rancor sim

At Rancor sim, a certain level of paranoia had set in Saturday morning. While I was chatting with Camov Kalinakov, Zax Starspear was saying uncomplimentary things about Harry Linden. I didn’t think much about it when the Zax disappeared. A few minutes later I was contacted with disturbing news via Skype:

ZaX Allure : i just got banned. i was logged out when i was in rancor
ZaX Allure: ip banned
ZaX Allure: and it happened right when i was talkin shit bout harry linden
ZaX Allure: you think he is listening to chat in rancor and voice n stuff?

We agreed that it is possible Harry Linden and associates are using their god powers to listen in on text and voice chat, and I took advantage of the situation to remind Harry Linden that he still owes me a Linden bear – to no avail.

Harry may be playing hard to get again, perhaps out of frustration. A sizable group of players have begun treating Linden Lab’s ban stick as part of an elaborate PvP shoot ‘em up, and at times it appears Harry and company are acting as involuntary recruiters for the meta-game the ban-evaders play with the Second Life. At worst, the Lab is taking sides in the gang wars. In any case, Zax told me he was going leveling up to using an IP address proxy – was this what the Lab wanted?

ZaX Allure: i didnt do nothin except express my feelings about what they did to nidol and i was like "harry linden is a child when he doesnt get what he wants he abuses his power"
ZaX Allure: then BAM
ZaX Allure: logged off and perm banned
ZaX Allure: ok now gotta use a proxy

Camov Kalinakov and Atlas Saintlouis chat in Rancor after LL removed all buildings

By Sunday, Atlas Saintlouis – the owner of Rancor sim – was less than pleased with the Lab after finding that the custom build he had paid for was deleted and told me, “Here is my issue with everything. if i hire a builder, in this case Ariel, for a thousand dollars to build a sim then that builder gets banned explain to me why they can remove a build from my sim” and continued, “it makes it nearly requisite of residents in SL to run background checks on builders for fear that a day, week, month, or year down the road LL may decide to ban that person and remove your entire sim build. It’s just nonsense and seems spiteful at best especially when from what i can tell Ariel was sent a message saying ‘account verification’

Atlas Saintlouis has submitted a ticket asking for a rollback of his sim to restore the buildings – but holds out little hope for a successful resolution.

Rancor 001
Rancor’s buildings were destroyed – but a dinosaur with an afro was spared

Discussion of the issue led to speculation that the Lab’s contractors may be involved.
Camov Kalinakov: Perhaps it was an ontyne out of control?
Atlas Saintlouis: well hell they deleted the build before there was even a response to that "verification"
Atlas Saintlouis: so i think it is rather troubling for builders and for people who hire builders
Camov Kalinakov: Stu Ontyne makes it a habit to visit this sim and look for us
Atlas Saintlouis: plus they seem to have done so without even verifying what they were asking for
Atlas Saintlouis: another interesting fact is that apparently ariel was banned on friday i think
Atlas Saintlouis: but the build wasn’t deleted until a day or so later
Atlas Saintlouis: now what purpose would that serve other than spite when they asked for verification via email?
Camov Kalinakov: I think they did that in retaliation for DW
Pixeleen Mistral: I think so too, based on the timing
Atlas Saintlouis: i don’t even know or care what DW crap you are talking about.
Atlas Saintlouis: i just own a sim that a build was deleted from. i guess it should serve as a warning to anyone who either has a busy RL that they should literally hire people to police the shit out of their sims and also learn to build because hiring a builder is a game of chance
Atlas Saintlouis: a game you cant win because the rules of that game are arbitrary

Back at Digital Worlds, the virtual gangstas were talking smack on Rancor for limiting access to the sim.

Chainsword Audion: they megablox – we legos

Chainsword Audion: as far as we concerned
Chainsword Audion: we already won the day they turned their sim no access
Chainsword Audion: they bitched out
Chainsword Audion: like we knew they would B)
Pixeleen Mistral: and this is why the Digital Worlds sim is open access?
Chainsword Audion: cause
Chainsword Audion: dw is an open sandbox for anybody to come and put down anything
Chainsword Audion: aint no nobuild noscript no access pussy shit
Pixeleen Mistral: Don’t you worry about griefers?
Chainsword Audion: loo
Nutter Dash: man everyone knows
Nutter Dash: we da kings
Chainsword Audion: da
Chainsword Audion: KINGS
Nutter Dash: we aint have to worry about anyone

Mr. Audion eventually pointed to a pair of YouTube video to illustrate the contrast between the Woodbury faction and the Digital Worlds’ style.

Digital Worlds: we aint piggly lil babies like the rancor kids are

Chainsword Audion: i got something to say
Chainsword Audion: this woodbury http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsQa8NOtr9M
Chainsword Audion: this DEEDUB
Chainsword Audion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipcUdis58Kk
Chainsword Audion: they megablox
Chainsword Audion: we legos
Chainsword Audion: u feel me?
Nutter Dash: they think they tonka tuff
Nutter Dash: they just shovels
Nutter Dash: we da big dogs
Chainsword Audion: ownd
Chainsword Audion: loo rancor is still
Chainsword Audion: no access
Chainsword Audion: DDUB would never go no access
Nutter Dash: yea dats for sure
Nutter Dash: we aint piggly lil babies like the rancor kids are
Chainsword Audion: everybody kno rancor a bunch of pussys
Chainsword Audion: they tryin to get big with the dub
Nutter Dash: they gettin put down
Chainsword Audion: then when we roll on them they
Chainsword Audion: SHUT DOWN
Chainsword Audion: owned

    @ glume

    if that was directed at me, I’m not really part of woodbury or rancor as I stepped out of SL and back into RL a while ago, I just find these retarded pissing matches hilarious. In the end, both sides look equally pathetic.

    the winning side is the one that realizes how pointless it is to have any fame or credit on a game that is largely regarded as a sexual deviant basement dweller playpen. So far I see the original PN lineup as the only successful griefing group in SL. With the exception of a few closet furries in the group, the rest harvested plenty of lulz from the game, then left when there was none left and moved on to more exciting things like masturbation and watching mold grow.

    Groups like DW, W-hat, and even what’s left of WU, dont seem to realize, staying in SL for “lulz” is a self-defeating strategy and makes you just as pathetic as the pubbies you troll and harass. going into the game, fucking with people then moving in to other mediums to troll is much more productive. bonus points for IRL trolling.

    but you decide to sit around in an online game that looks like it didnt realize that 2003 was 7 years ago and think you’re elite trolls, and are better than others.

    Yeah keep justifying your addiction

    Hmmm … interesting suggestion … however, isn’t a pissing contest performed by little boys and focusses distance and pressure (or hight, if it’s against a wall), while Schwanzvergleich is performed by wannabe adult men and concentrating on length and thickness? :) )))))

    It was just a joke. Good for you for making a choice. I’ve greatly restricted the amount of business I do in world, especially in real estate where I just don’t trust LL.

    Also, Sammy, you know next to nothing about me in-world aside from the fact that I was a incredibly new and minor member of WU, let alone anything about me irl.

    But hey, whatever makes you feel good.

    I made myself unwelcome? since when? I was part of a carpet ban, and had been logged off for 2 weeks because I have a job. (protip: I hated it then)

    Dont act like SL is some little club and that it is some great shame to be banned.

    It’s trivial to get back in. I dont bother because it’s like breaking back into an insane asylum.

    all this is funny. really funny. and then seeing the rancorian nichtards wound up in this made for some nice icing on the cake. first they are mafia then they are not. then they are PNwannabes, then they are not. next they are WU saviors then they are not. forever they were butt hurt and until eternity they shall stay that way until
    eventually losing the weight and get laid. open that SIM atlas. keeping it closed is no way for a ESTj to behave now is it?

    and you spent HOW MUCH on that SIM build? you have got to be kidding me

    Addiction would be signing on daily, that i dont have considering i make a grand appearance once a month to check inworld profits. Sl is more of a, im bored, i feel like getting more bored by signing in causing a ruckus for 10 min, then signing off to continue my great rl. What people dont really get is that the dw family conjugates outside this silly wall of sl. We have much bigger projects always in action. We take RL griefing more serious than digital. Digital griefing is an added bonus for a quick laugh, but as for long term, its been a waste of time since square 1. As for counterpart griefing organizations, the need to hit the showers or sit on the bench to learn something from the bears b)

    Blast Factor,
    A thousand bucks for a sim build isn’t much in the history of SL. I hear Christophe spends that much every time one of his generals quits and wipes the Vanguard sim. I was once paid $26,000 for a half sim build of the WTC towers, and Amsterdam sim was sold for $50,000.
    I realize that SL today is a sad sixth world reflection of its former dynamic third world economic self. Hence why I spend no time there anymore.

    While I know thats supposed to be the counterpart (there were some others to pick from), its all missing the Freudian sound and idea of testosterone fueled men lowering their pants and literally comparing their (suposedly) most important part to each other as a serious business (which has been exactly the picture I got from this article/the whole skiddie/cracker/griefer scene not limited to SL). Its sorta stupid shenanigans of minors vs. utterly pathetic. Furthermore, as a pissing contest is best done in snow, the inevitable low temperature would also make for falsified results.

    @At0m0, I agree with you when you say SL looks like it’s from 2003. Blue Mars looks a lot better. So when do we get to see Woodbury on Blue Mars? I’ve looked and I can’t find it. Tizzy’s been taking it up for over a year now.

    Wow Linden labs reset your password and gave it to someone else. That is insane. I wonder how much personal information like payment information they got ahold of?.

    This is another good reason to make the move to Inworldz besides the cheap 75 USD sims with 45,000 prims.

    Here is a nice informative write up about this new world that is growing at a fast rate. http://networkedblogs.com/8iv2a.

    Chainsword Audion is a total buffoon. A griefer himself, griefers are his friends and encouraged freely, and a bare-faced liar to boot. Digital Worlds has a notecard intro when one tp’s there, written by this asswipe himself, stating anyone can build a home there and leave it as long as they wish. Not so. After a few days, this asshole clears the sim, and griefs and bans any perturbed residents who may have spent hours and hours setting up a home. Perhaps you should do your background research of such people more thoroughly before making them out to be a victim?

    MRPEWPY would be a fitting name for the new era PN which consists of a fresh out of 4chan aspie social retard. The PN was rapidly dying and with it’s top griefers always leaving it had no chance that and the PN had a closet furry sonic lover as a leader for a while ROF

    Inworldz? Don’t make me laugh. Inworldz is a pile of shit open grid. I was once on the Inworldz grid and I made a car which I turned physical, the entire sim crashed and was down for 45 minutes so I quit seeing that this SL alternative was worthless. A few days later my ISP emailed me notifying that Inworldz.com reported me to them for a denial of service attack, claiming I spammed their server with TCP requests (a complete lie)

    Of course what else can you expect from a pathetic business that lacks the discipline to make their own real product and has to copy an existing one.

    your dog doesnt count.

    Plus you arent married, nor have a wife, because you imply you’re having sex. There is no sex after marriage. She gets fat, and drains on your wallet, and stops taking care of herself. especially after the first kid or two.
