I still don't understand why taking screen shots is creepy or offensive.
I just took a screenshot of this forum page.
Oh you little /"$/"%$?%$ !!
I had issue with take at first. But I have issue with pictures in real life too so...
Strange thing. Now that I got used to it and don't care anymore. I feel more comfortable with pictures in real life too.
It get creepy when for the third time in a day you have someone in default wear sniff a woman/girl crouch and start taking pictures of "smexy avatars"
After that it's like "burned cat fears cold water" You see everyone taking pictures as the creep from 3 days ago.
That's what happen when you tend to forget you're not your avatar.
I would say around my 2nd to 4th month on home I was bit like that. Kinda forgot, blurred line between me and Doc.
Before that I didn't identify with that avatar. After that I started "getting it" more. It's a learning process. Like everything else.
Sometime around the 4th of July, a friend and I dressed our avis in patriotic costumes and had an impromptu photo shoot in the casino. Someone using a female avatar happened to run by and assumed I was taking photos of them. They became very angry, and made several disparaging remarks about what she thought I would be doing with the imaginary photographs of her avatar.
I tried to explain to them that I wasn't even taking a photo of their avatar, but they refused to listen to reason. After several more vulgar and hate filled PMs that then turned into XMB messages along the same lines, I had to block them.
So, this idea of being victimized by someone taking pictures, has been taken to level that innocent photographers having some fun with a friend now become the subject of abuse. I'm all for silliness, but this is the wrong kind. Just something to consider.
