Blind TP's...when someone on Second Life sends you an offer through a drop down box on your viewer screen to take you away from where you are or what you are doing to their event, usually a club or a party where they are either DJing, hosting, dancing or some other act where they want you to come and support them and the event! They do this without speaking or communicating with you in any way beforehand. Sometimes they never speak to you at all but you were trusting enough to be on their friends list and they send out these spamming offers in a big mass to everybody!
I can understand that they would like to have you come support them but to never speak or communicate you in any other way besides when they want you to come to their event is FUCKING RUDE and IT ENDS WITH ME TODAY!!!!
(OH shit Ziggy got bitchy again!)
I have 4 people who shall remain nameless who regularly if not many times a day, send me blind TP offers. One is a dear friend from my past but rarely speaks to me anymore besides wanting to send me a TP. One is a recent, casual friend who talked with me only in chat at the club where they stripped at but other than that they basically never gave me the time of day! The third one is a casual friend who owns a club and never speaks to me or has ever hung with me besides sending me a TP to their club! The last one I never spoke to but when I was at their club they gave me a friendship offer. Now I know what for...I did not agree to be friends with you to be used!
It never fails when I am somewhere already, visiting or busy or enjoying a quiet moment sailing that these blind TP offers invade my viewer screen and sometimes if I am not carefull I click to clear them off my screen and get ripped by mistake from my chosen atmosphere and find myself plunged into the middle of a laggy dance floor usually filled with snotty, unfriendly cliques of avatars at their club! Taken and abducted against my will, often when I am in swim attire or completely naked (as I love to lounge around nude on my property).
This act is fucking rude and unless the person is a special friend or at least messages me first and asks me if I am busy and would like to have fun at a party then I will now consider this a hostile act and I will delete you from my friends list no matter who you are!
Don't get me wrong, I understand the slant of where this is coming from. You have an event and you want to fill it up, usually to also hold out your hand for lindens for the privilege of being in your vicinity! My late friend Hurtfullsplash used to instant message me and ask me nicely if I was busy and if not would I be interested in coming to a party. This was very social, polite behavior and in almost every instance, I accepted his offer and went to his party!
Now for you other people, well sorry Mr Bigstuff but this is what group notices are for. If I want to decide which party I want to go to then I will view the offerings of the group notices. What would you do if you were busy DJing or hosting and I sent you a blind TP offer to come watch me take a shit in the woods? Would you embrace me (scratch that hehe)..or be furious?
I am sending this blog post out as 24 hour notice to the blind TPer's to give them a chance to cure their sins or suffer the wrath and vengeance as my friendship delete button becomes a ban hammer.
No offence, we can still be friends if you ever decide to speak or associate with me other than offering me random, blind TP's. Bet you won't give a shit though huh? Bet you won't even notice I am no longer on your friends list either huh? Don't you dare now start sending me a fake, plastic message first saying Hi Ziggy whacha doin' then a TP offer because I will see right through your tricks!
For now on do not offer me friendship if all your interested in is having me on a list to mass spam me!
If we are casual friends and have not spoken for a long time and offer me a blind TP then the 2nd time you do it you will have your screen invaded with a drop down box from me telling you that I deleted your friendship!
If we are good friends and we speak regularly and you offer me a blind TP offer I will throw my drink in your face and then berate you unmercifully for hours until your forced to log off to make me stop!
The motto of this rant: Never spend a minute of your time towards anyone who cannot be bothered to spend a second to be polite to you!
