you're on the phone with your girlfriend, she's upset

I get in moods.

This, from the FallnAngels store group:

[06:24 PM] Eden Pyrithea peeeerrrrrssssss at the horses that Az is auctioning off! :OOO
[06:24 PM] Eden Pyrithea kicks the chat
[06:24 PM] Tomoyuki Batra-Demain [Tomoyuki Batra]: o0

[06:25 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: waering clothswaering cloths
[06:26 PM] Eden Pyrithea kills the non-Az spam
[06:26 PM] Seymour Greymoon: stop
[06:26 PM] Eden Pyrithea: okay, and there's a reason to spam this chat with periods?

I didn't get it either. Then came this:

[06:26 PM] Azriel Demain: Everyone that just saw his spam, please report him to LL immediately, thank you Angels!
[06:26 PM] Tomoyuki Batra-Demain [Tomoyuki Batra]: Rocco, you've been text muted
[06:27 PM] Seymour Greymoon: what an ass
[06:27 PM] Tomoyuki Batra-Demain [Tomoyuki Batra]: ejected
[06:28 PM] Azriel Demain: banned
[06:29 PM] Tomoyuki Batra-Demain [Tomoyuki Batra]: AR sent

And that struck me as some kind of new record, on the grid. Five minutes, round trip, from access to doors closed.

So I felt some sort of commemoration was in order:

[06:32 PM] Emilly Orr: I'm impressed despite myself. Five minutes to be muted, kicked from the group, and abuse-reported by several group members. Way to go.
[06:33 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: what??
[06:33 PM] Emilly Orr: Yep.
[06:33 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: who r u?

Yeah, I ask who I am all the time. It's more existential when I do it, though. And properly spelled.

[06:34 PM] Emilly Orr: You hit the FallnAngel store group with that series of punctuation marks? Followed by respamming misspelled words.
[06:34 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: yes

Good, I'm talking to the right idiot, then.

[06:34 PM] Emilly Orr: I'm in the group. I think five minutes is actually the shortest time from announcement to eviction I've seen in a store group.
[06:35 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: get in to the point
[06:35 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: what do u want

To get you to spell "you" properly as a three-letter word. But that's not likely to happen.

[06:36 PM] Emilly Orr: Simply to congratulate you. Also, five ARs announced as sent to the Lindens, which means there were others sent who didn't mention it in the group.
[06:36 PM] Emilly Orr: Enjoy the rest of your day!
[06:36 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: but y do u think i bother?
[06:37 PM] Emilly Orr: I'm sorry, you'll have to translate that into English for me. Do you mean, 'why do you think I care?' or 'do you want to know why I spammed a store group with punctuation symbols for two minutes?'
[06:38 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: i'm not english as u see
[06:39 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: i'm nt a spammer either,.
[06:39 PM] Emilly Orr: Wasn't aware of that, your profile is in English.

What's even weirder? His profile is in nearly perfectly spelled English. Check out what's on his bio page:

Kiss slowly, Love deeply, Forgive quickly.
Life is too short for you to be disappointed any longer,..

And on his real life page is this:

Count your life by smiles, not tears.
Count your age by friends, not years.

Yeah. Of course, how could I have been so blind? Of course you're...whatever it is those would indicate to the casual viewer that you're not English. (From later conversation, he's Italian. Surprised the hell out of me.)

*coughs* But I digress:

[06:39 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: i did that coz i saw the group chat in my screen
[06:39 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: as i closed it for severel times
[06:39 PM] Emilly Orr: It's a bug. It happens.
[06:40 PM] Rocco [alenfdo]: so i was angry and did that
[06:41 PM] Emilly Orr: Ah.

Whereupon he got out of world. Wouldn't necessarily blame him, but still. That deserves some kind of award or something.

(I was even toying with the concept of making him one, but then he offered to friend me on the grid, Just not encouraging that level of idiocy in any way.)

:O EMILY! /me waves stupidly!

That really is stupidity at its worst. Or near-worst. There's no way that stupid can be best....

and where does google get the words for its captcha capatcha thinger? 0o?

I was once calling chair letters in a group which explicitly allowed it - in fact the models sometimes did - and someone spammed something like, "It's so annoying when you spam the chat" about twenty times.

People are stupid sometimes.

Lady Eden,


I have no idea where Google gets their Captcha words from. They're very, very odd selections.

And Deo,

His problem is he happened to be stupid where the store owners could see. Pick the wrong day, get banned. Pick the right day, maybe they'll ask why someone did something, but they're by no means obligated to.

It's like the people who perpetually complain about the RP in the Angels chat. Um, hello? Falln is on four sims, and one of them is full-on RP, so...RP is going to surface. In fact, Azriel makes the point of sending out the occasional notice mentioning that, so...? And it's not discouraged in any way.

It does come back to 'stupid people are stupid', but sometimes, there's hefty penalties for it. So long, Rocco.
