I'm a member of the Green Zone group in SL. Have been since the RedZone debacle. Remember RedZone? Its was that security thing that tracked and stored the IP address of everyone in SL. The Lab finally got rid of the thing last year.
Monkey Wonder, owner of the VooDoo Sploder system sent out this notecard to evewry single member of the Green Zone group...and theres a lot of them...
Dear Greenzone griefing group member,
Following mass defamation, griefing, propoganda, scamming and false abuse reports initiated by members of Greenzone griefing group recently on a scale never before seen in SL, Voodoo has taken the decision to protect our customers and other residents of Second Life from your activities.
Greenzone once had a legitimate purpose in Second Life, protecting the privacy of residents from systems such as Red Zone.
Red Zone is long gone, and Greenzone now operates more like the Anonymous hacking collective. The moderators have lost control, and the group is now a leaderless organisation that anyone with a grudge can join to attack others in the name of Greenzone.
Voodoo produces an extremely popular free Sploder tracking HUD which is owned by thousands and used everyday by many people, we have a user base of over 40,000 avatars. The next version of these HUDs, to be released imminently, will announce any nearby Greenzone griefers in local chat by name, along with any land owned by these griefers and any objects created by them. We believe your creations and land are not safe as you are a member of a group well known for griefing.
We do however understand that there is a minority of legitimate business owners currently in the griefing group, who joined long before Greenzone was hijacked by trouble makers. Due to this, we are allowing 12 hours for you to leave the group and avoid any damage to your business.
Voodoo has been at the forefront of SL security for many years and we take it and peoples privacy very seriously.
We do not wish to become ememies of any group, but we simply cannot tolerate people who choose to attack or scam others.
Thank you for your understanding and please make the right decision.
Owner of Voodoo SL
I passed the notecard to a couple of folks i know who are alts of LL employees, they simply said to Abuse Report him under Harassment > Defamation of Groups or Individuals and then the lab will deal with it.
The members of Green Zone itself are from a wide slice of SL, a lot of well known business owners, and then theirs folks like myself, who dont own a business, but do co-own a sim which is in the destination guide (twice) and am on speaking terms with more than the one or two Linden Lab employees that this half-wit called Monkey Wonder knows.
If you do own VooDoo, or you happen to know someone who does use the VooDoo system...is THIS the kind of guy you want to be associated with? Is this is kind of system you want to use? A system where the original OWNER...and NOT YOU is free to slander whomever they want, whenever they want with no input or authority from you at all and YOU are the person who bought the system?
Do you as a VooDoo owner want to be walking around a hair faire, or a clothes fair with about 40 other avatars around you and have your VooDoo HUD suddenly declare in open public chat that 2 or 3 of the best known creators in that fare are "greifers" all because Monkey Wonder says so?
Join the Green Zone group, even just for 5 minutes, and take a look at the well known names of creators, sim owners and businesses...and do the right thing, return anything belonging to Monkey Wonder and forget VooDoo ever existed, there's much better scripted sploder systems on the marketplace than Monkeys.
This is EXACTLY the very same road RedZone went down before the Lab shoved a red hot poker up the creators ass and banned him.
Folks using VooDoo might wanna think about that....
