So I’ve been “going out” a bit more again, attending a few bingos and parties, stuff like that… and at times, I’ve seriously thought I would be going mad. Why? Not because of the people… but because of the annoying people.
I’m somewhat wondering if I’m not overreacting a bit about this, yet it really makes it hard to enjoy certain events at times… really. Oddly enough or not, this has systematically been happening with “new” people. So, out of ignorance? Or just their regular selves? I have been a newbie too. I still am, in many areas of Second Life. There was a time when I was also completely broke with my pitiful 50$L stipend that wouldn’t even buy me a T-Shirt. But as far as I remember, even in my very first days in here, I’ve never: begged, annoyed people, played with bombs and rocket launchers in an area where an event was taking place, rezzed countless prims and stupid poy-poy items that were only adding to the chat- and general sim-lag, chatted incessantly when other people around were trying to enjoy an event or mind their own business. There’s a place for all and everything, and “being new” shouldn’t normally prevent anyone from at least remotely realizing (especially when other attendants complain) that they’re just being annoying, and not “funny” or “witty”? No?…
Yes… I’m probably overreacting. Yet when I’m forced to mute someone and/or a chatting item because their incessant banter-spam is driving me nuts, maybe it’s not so much a matter of reacting, but of really facing something that is damn annoying? I don’t come to an event to read irrelevant comments and cope with farting sounds and gun smoke, after all.
But! Woe to me, for being so quiet all the time! I tend to forget that it’s not the case for everyone! Haha.
