Now available on the web – the first show in our new season as we look at what happens when griefing becomes extortion, talking to people who have been threatened, and looking at some of the solutions people are trying, in the absence from intervention from Linden Lab.

Some of the information shared on this show might surprise or even shock you. How griefing tools are freely available on the marketplace. How people are exploiting newcomers to the grid in some pretty unpleasant ways.

Our guests on the show: from left to right - Rails Bailey, Robert Galland, Frolic Mills, Fina Petty and Kiff Clutterbuck

We talk to Kiff Clutterbuck and Dina Petty, the owners of Junkyard Blues – whose notecard to group members about the extortion they were facing triggered a widespread concern; to Frolic Mills, of Best of Second Life, who encountered a particularly appalling griefer who attacked (and continues to attack) the fashion industry; to Robert Galland, owner of Galland Homes, Member of the Second Life Bar Association and real life attorney, who gives a legal perspective of what has been happening,; and to Rails Bailey, volunteer mentor and head of security at events like SL9B, who talks about ongoing security problems in Second Life.

This is an important show – make sure you don’t miss it.

Today’s jigsaw is another from Honour McMillan’s excellent blog, Honour’s Post Menopausal View (of Second Life).

In today’s post, The Serpent in the Second Life Paradise, she reflects on last night’s Designing Worlds show on griefing as she wanders the beautiful sim, Butterfly Beach.

The post will give you something to think about … and the jigsaw today is pretty tough too – so enjoy!
