Taking things too far...

No doubt some of ya have already heard about the heap of trouble that the JLU (Justice League Unlimited) have been in with first their network banlink system but now most recently their wiki on members of the Second Life community who come to their attention.

If ya dont know anything about it...read this...

The link above is the summary thread, however the main thread about the JLU's data harvesting, data mining and so on is here...

All i can say is...

...WTF?

They call this "protecting the grid"?!  Collecting info on greifers is one thing...but contacting a dying mans sister to make sure this man in RL was dying because he was a greifer is just...sick.  Really...really sick.

It's not just total batshit insane lunatics like GreenLanternExcelsior who have done questionable things for the cause of "Justice" in the Justice League, several other well known names in the Doctor Who community itself who are part of the JLU have been documented in the leaked info from the JLU wiki as doing many, many questionable things...MANY questionable things.

If anything, this is going to make me more wary of the folks that I now know who are in the JLU, what they are doing in sims i admin in, why they are there, what they are doing there in the first place and what data they are mining while they are there.

Several folks have already left the JLU over this, i say the problem is not with JLU as a group, the problem is with their leader...get rid of him and let someone sane take the group over, then maybe they can get back to helping keep the sandboxes cleaner instead of gathering docs on people.
