"Hey! Watch where you're slinging that stuff!", as she dodges a glowing glop of goo, "You could put someone's eye out with that thing!" She ducks as the mop handle wildly swings in her direction.

Stumbles and steps in the bucket, promptly going face-down awash in a mixture of dubious liquids...

Blows some bubbles in the water-goo mixture before using the mop handle as an aid to unsteadily get back to her feet. Then proceeds to momentarily flail around, incidentally dousing the match, before flopping down in the nearest chair. "Urrrrgh."

I do some RP on an alt.
The founders are still the owners. One has an IC role; the other is primarily the builder.
The second and third most powerful IC roles are held by people who have been around three years or more; they are also OOC officers. (I'm one of them.)
You have to be interviewed by an officer before you can get a role there; you have to have a role to RP there. The role has to make sense in our RP structure. And we have no problem running out the toxic sorts.
It started small, and worked up to a full sim. Just like a lot of other things in SL, starting small and working up pays off.
It's not a large group, but we have established - and maintained - a true community, even as we have gone through some changes, including several long-time folks moving on at around the same time last year. We do a good job getting financial support from our members, as well.
As has been pointed out - it's all about the people you get.

You could always ask the people behind the Midgar sim for FF7 based roleplay if SL is a toxic roleplay environment and see what kind of response you get from them. Just hope that they don't take you for some kind of griefer looking for trouble and leave you hanging upset down in the teleport hub for the nearest Linden to come drag your ass out of there.

It's just harder to set up and do stuff in 3d.

We need AI GMs to do all that stuff for us, like they have on the Holodeck.
If you need a Holodeck instead of a sim for your RP, then you will have to contact the United Federation of Planets to see if they can allow you to have one you can use. Be prepared that they may have to beam you aboard a star ship to give you access to one. *giggle*

What do lolcats have to do with whether or not SL is toxic to role play?
