Ok, normally I don’t do this.. but there are so many idiots in Second life using the -=Bloodlines=- vampire fangs to ‘recruit’ noobs into their ranks that they have finally earned a special place on my blog.
These people ride the short bus of vampires, they are the skanky rotting corpses amongst the undead, the would-be social climbers who don’t give a shit about the quality of their ranks.
For those people who don’t know about the -=Boodlines=- fangs, the way it works is (basically) this:
- Person with fangs ‘bites’ you. You get a pop up in world saying that so-and-so wants to bite you, and asking if you accept.
- You accept.
- Your avie gets a set of ‘bite marks’, and his/her name is registered on the -=Bloodlines=- website.
If you don’t want to roleplay under the -=Bloodlines=- game system.. it’s no big deal. However.. if at sometime in the future you wish to play, you can’t choose your own bloodline because you are already registered as belonging to a bloodline.
Sort of sucks, huh?
Now let me clarify something here: I don’t think the -=Bloodlines=- products are bad products.. just the opposite. I’ve been a gamer too, any product that help keep the game honest is a good thing. With that said though, the -=Bloodlines=- line of products does have a huge hole that permits abuse and rank leveling that is fully unrelated to the game itself.
To their credit, -=Bloodline=- has addressed this issue by creating and releasing a free, transferable garlic necklace to ward off -=Bloodlines=- vampires. You can read more about it on their blog. Please be aware that this product is not effective against non-=Bloodlines=- products.. and -=Bloodlines=- does get a bad rap from some of these look alike products.
Now.. on to the idiots.
If you are on my Idiots list it’s because you tried to ‘animate’ my avatar using a -=Bloodlines=- product with out asking me first or engaging me in the appropriate role play that would have led to my avatar being ‘bitten’. Congratulations on being a complete idiot who doesn’t understand the limits of simple role play, or the rules associated with the product you are using.
