Your thoughts - public space takeover?

22 replies 421 views Edited Feb 17, 2013

Had an unusual experience and wanted your thoughts on it.

 

Last night a group of seven 'marines', all popping green and showing club 172nd, tookover a hut on Glittering Sands.  They blocked the doorway and told people not to enter, while some  of their 'officers' had a meeting for 20 minutes.  I was sitting in the space when they came in and they demanded that I leave, "LEAVE THIS AREA".  I refused, and told them this is a public space and they should go private.  They responded by brandishing weapons and threatening.

 

Now, I am fine with clubs meeting in public spaces.  Most will even chat with passers-by and it contributes to the social experience.

 

But I think that commandeering a public space for your meetings is inappropriate behavior and use of Home.  No one can deny other users access to a public space, and bully those who try to use it.

 

What do you think?

I find it funny that they threatened you with weapons! Bahahahaaaa! What was the worst that would happen? Your avatar dies? Even if that was possible you could just re-spawn. LOL! Some people in home are really stupid.

There is a report feature. Use it. They really are only asking for a ban – the entire group of them. Catering to their sillyness only gives them the satisfaction they are looking for.

 

They can't do anything to your pixels so put them on ignore after you report them and be done with it. Really that simple.

Sounds like a good time to go have a smoke and a laugh while your avatar goes to "Back Soon".
