Wow!! Bout time for another post, don’t ya think? 😉
Something that has been on my mind lately has griefing. Especially after watching the video recently from the Lindens on the matter:
I sometimes hang around sandboxes so it’s not unusual to run across a greifer. It’s where all the cool builds are happening after all. While I have some offensive protection and defense (Heh, sorry not gonna give ya those specifics. Greif me and you might find out though. :P), but generally the best approach I’ve found is to just sit and wait it out. Most greifers seem to have a bit of a short attention span, and rapidly lose interest after a few minutes. But sometimes the only thing you can do is move to another sim.
I have at times tried to engage a greifer in an IM as to why they are doing their activities. I have yet to get a response. But I think it is good to remind them that there are people at the other side of the screen.
But I’d be curious to know how other people deal with greifers. If you have a novel way of handling them let me know.
