Three months ago Linden labs brought up the idea of banning bots... and then a month later announced major restriction on using bots to raise your search level. Today Second Life is still plauged by these bots. They cause lag, they insult your customers, and are against the TOS.
This weekend I flew around just looking to see how bots were effecting my search results. Ever place I went that had high traffic had bots out. Every single one. Some even had new bots made since first annoucment of the restrictions.
Knowing that the blog said not to send abuse reports on these I didn't, and feeling powerless I cried out to twitter: "Went around #secondlife today, seeing if there were still bots :( Its so bad still. Why does LL not take action? Anyone? @torley @secondlife"
I soon recieved a response from @torley saying: "@skidz LL *does* take action on bots using resources unjustly. Make sure to use Help menu > Report Abuse."
This means it is OK to report abuse of bots now! This is great news. I know the job LL is doing is a hard one, and I could not imagine trying to take on without the help of the community. So they need our help.
How to report abuse of bots:
Feel free to post what you find in the comment.... so others can build off your work as well. This is our world all, and the world is what we make it. So please put forth just a little effort for this. If we all did, it would make a huge difference.
