Then the next bomb drops. Astolat quotes from the bwiki showing that they are also collecting medical information about the people they're "investigating" and putting it in their (insecure) database.
As Astolat has recently had medical challenges herself, she is infuriated (and I don't blame her.)
With these revelations (the medical info and the data import) the thread goes crazy with outrage. This goes on for some time.
In response to ZenMondo's accusation of confirmation bias to SLU at large, Velvet Bikcin summarizes what many, if not most people on SLU would agree with, refuting that as follows:
| I had no rage for JLU at the beginning. I'll be honest, I looked down on them with amusement. Grown men running around pretending to be superheroes (try DC universe online, much more satisfying). It wasn't until I read the log entries prying into people's lives, and using their medical condition as some sort of information bargaining chip. You people (yes I said THAT) in the JLU while masquerading as fictional heroes have completely lost your moral compass and no longer see the difference between right and wrong, it's all a big game to you. |
But your pixellated fantasies have now twisted into RL stalking and intrusion. We're past the IP harvesting mentioned in the OP title, we're now talking about the bigger picture. What the JLU is doing stinks to high heaven, and I'm hoping at least one of the lurky loos from the JLU reading this thing has at least a whisper of morality left in their soul and blows the lid off this thing so it can end, soon.
The rage on was caused by the JLU, they have noone to blame but themselves.
If you want to be a real hero, man up, and admit this whole game of yours has gone beyond fun and has become a twisted morality play in which nothing good will come.
The thread devolves for a while into shenanigans. Everyone becomes a superhero, Joshua asks about penises. You know, business as usual. Also, Atlas Saintlouis wants you to pet his dead meeroos. Good times, good times. tl;dr: The JLU supports alt detection. Their only concern is the stringent letter of the changes to the LL TOS. They are opposed to the spirit in which it was written. There is also RL personal medical information contained in the bwiki. Information can be accessed by JLU members from this offsite database while inworld. They keep tapdancing around the technicalities of this, but that's the bottom line here.
Also, Atlas wants you to pet his dead meeroos, Joshua wants to know how big your penis is, and everyone gets to be a superhero.
This summarizes pages 25-50.
Thank you, and have a pleasant evening.
