Ok – I’ve had enough of unsolicited groups and mailing lists in Second Life. Welcome to the Hall of Shame. Anytime I receive unsolicited crap from a mailing list or group I didn’t join, it’s going here. Hopefully people can use this as a list of people and vendors to avoid to reduce their spam. I request removal from each and every group and mailing list I get dumped into and the “Result” column is what happened when I requested to be removed from their mailing list.
|StaceyRome Resident||Rez Magazine||Removed|
|Sulie Criss||Royal Thai Galleries||Edit 1/8/12: Received a notecard attacking me personally in objection to this blog.
Removed with poor grace and derogatory comments about me.
|Edit 2/18/12: I’ve been banned from the land. Apparently House Nishi doesn’t like people asking to be removed from their mailing lists..
Repeated requests to remove me, one response saying she would. Still on this list and receiving junk. Currently I’m doing an Abuse Report on each one I receive.
|Anaiee Rae||Beauty In You||Hippogroup. Went to the Hippogroup site and did a “Leave & block owner”|
|ShenLei Flasheart||Carriage Trade||Edit 4/14/12: Yet another ban. It’s unfortunate to me that some store owners in SL just don’t quite grasp the concept of customer service. Apparently the flowchart is something like: go to store—>get thrown on spam list—>complain—>get banned from store. I guess they only want sheep in their stores…
TP’ed to the site of the offending message and waited several minutes for the subscribe board to become unbusy from sending multiple unwanted messages so I could remove myself.
|Fuzz Lennie||Vero Modero News||Requested removal by IM after TPing to the location of the offending object and being summarily ejected by a security system. It seems their privacy is valuable, just not mine. No response as of yet, so unsure if it was done or not.|
|Rusty Hammand||Dressing Darling/Monday’s Child (Freebies)||Edit 4/14/12: My, my… another store I’ve been banned from. It seems that people that throw you on their lists without your permission are a bit touchy about people having the audacity to object or want to be removed. At least it looks like I’ve been removed from the list…
At this point I’ve had enough of fly-by-night sleazy group tactics. All offenders are ARed from this point on.
Look for this post to be updated often with the current rash of people doing opt-out groups in SL.
