LOL did you see what he did? Right there in the comments...
God's gift to Doctor Who fandom blah blah blah. Did he once say anything like: "That's preposterous. I love New Toulouse and was making the rounds of speakeasies and dives in Second Life before you knew what a 'Radio Riel' was." He doesn't know shit or give a rat's ass about New Toulouse and its culture. It's all about adding a rezzer to turn someone's carefully nurtured estate into a fanboy playground for him and his friends. He was caught trying to put a rezzer with a 1960s police box in the town square without asking in January. Still caught up with trying to get his bearings on becoming an estate owner, the new mayor of New Toulouse was unaware of how irrelevent the thing was to the community, thought he was accommodating a resident, bought the fake stats of how most of the local populace needed it (so not true), and agreed to let Victor plop it down on the pier. Then Victor plopped down 3 more. All set to role play category and the objects set to materialize as British and/or modern structures. They are oblivious to the SL RPG edge of Whovian subculture and he preyed on that ignorance to get his way.
And here's the winner. If you've come from his blog or anything he's said about me, read on to see how he relies on your ignorance to make a point...
Anyone who is familiar with the basics of parcel management knows that as long as an object is set to group, it stays. Victor has no business remaining in the New Toulouse Parish group. He doesn't need to be there in order to maintain his rezzers. Everyone else was kicked out 2 weeks ago for the group to be used exclusively by management, so how do you think this would look if the Taloosters - many of whom were not pleased with this group change - knew some outsider whose prims rezzed covenant-unfriendly content, was kept on unneccessarily with these privileges and his ear to owner and EMs' executive conversations and the ability to build on estate land?
You think someone like Victor - who's served as an admin for several estates - doesn't know this? Of course he does. He knows everything, remember? The thing is, he relies on YOU not knowing so you buy his excuse.
Btw while I was pleased to see Nodster as new captain of the Whovians' RFL team, the only activity or contribution to the team thus far has been from Victor, who had to give up teamwork when he ascended to join the relay's committee. I made my rounds to the team shops and floats yesterday and was going to donate to their kiosk when "victor1st mornington" was the owner I'd give money to. I stopped right there. RFL management please note that the only change in his involvement this year for that team is that Victor's name does not appear on their team roster. For all we know Nodster is being used as a front. We don't know of course, only what we see so far, and I'm getting a whiff from that direction. Watch that space for violations... We can anticipate he or an alt will have built their relay campsite come July.
So kids, what have we learned from this? That fandom is shitty business. Yes, this has all been done over fandom. Sad isn't it? Cheating, manipulating, lying... every sort of malicious act imaginable. IT'S A SHOW. SOME CREATORS HAVE MADE SOME COOL STUFF IN SL AROUND IT. OKAY FINE. It's fun to travel in a TARDIS and all, and some people have invented interesting characters and had adventures etc., and that's fine too. But THIS... this level of activity I've been observing over the past 2+ years by Victor is simply the sign of a sick mind. Where I live this behavior is so way out there. And then there's the whole following me around stuff. I'll beg off some themed estates for now.
I wonder what The Doctor would think?
Tell you one thing. He made things easier to happen. The Tower card. To be honest, the Aether Chrononauts captains are now ready to define their team the way they want. They don't need someone proactive to run the RFL-hosted events for them and do what they should be doing. I switched to a team run by a former committee member with some friends in tow. I know he's going to be participating in everything and I can step back as I'd hoped to this year. There are at least two operations I'm facing after a certain unpleasant test is conducted next week. I just have to survive that one and I can look to the future.
I think after filtering out victor's vituperous haze over my blog post (he so loves to rat), they found that my blog was essentially a neurotic's introspection, that in general I distrust everyone and need reassurance about everything. They ultimately realized that I found them to be wonderful people and quickly getting into sync with the RFL experience. They really are good folk, and being thrown into a test of fire has proven them to be very resilient. We parted diplomatically and I shared my master photoshop docs with their co-captain.
If there's one thing you can rely on: when I say I like someone or something, you know I'm not bullshitting. The only thing fake about me is my avatar.
