The are Data-mining and using a Algorithm he said to make global bans on people. I assume it checks how many sims your banned in your age and stuff.
Either Zen doesn't know the whole of what PZ is doing or he was really tired or he is only giving half truths.
He said their is no web interface for the PZ that all interaction with it is thru the HUD or Node.
Actually, if Alice banned and Joe has chosen globally, Bob gets banned on Joe's sim too.--edited to add "it's automatic ban, Joe does not need to do anything for it to happen"
What we still don't know is if the global is done for all PZ users or if it's done based on an opt in system that allows for trust (but if it's done by picking and chosing who you will trust...HOW is that done since nobody but PZ creators have access to the webpage/date base).
He did state that JLU can do global bans that anyone with the global ban option turned on will have avatars banned from JLU which can be over ridden by local pass.
The whole thing stinks horribly of hidden information as well as no transparency at all for either those who use the system as well as for those banned by the system.
