Well, for those of you who do partake of Second Life and happen to have the fortune/misfortune to be roadside on the mainland(s), you may have encountered the abominations of AnnMarie Otoole. “Self guiding” vehicles for “realism” (according to her) but how realistic are massively oversized and undersized cars? How realistic is it for them to suddenly ignore the realism she claims to want and suddenly drive/meander across water?

The bane of them is, they often get stuck, cross sims horribly because they are heavily overscripted and poorly scripted. Now she’s added spiders and tomatoes to the vehicle fleet which is so very realistic! Why every day I have tomatoes roll past my house being chased by Volkswagon sized spiders…

She’s a scourge. She skirts the rules of SL and of community spirit by running bots AaronM Jenkins and Enid Oompa to pop around to many of the rez zones on the LL roads and drop a bus stop and some sort of vehicle. She did this with her now banned alt AnnMarie Oleander only it was bus stop signs not bus stops.

That said, there’s a nice thread detailing much of her “work” and you can see just how out of touch she is with the rest of SL over here: http://www.sluniverse.com/php/vb/general-sl-discussion/97525-annmaries-cars-pesky-ever.html

She ran the bots from her Putiki Fold land holdings but has moved them to another parcel after I exposed them. I’ve also stumbled over maps showing each spot she uses to rez her seriously outdated back when they were made in 06 vehicles and bus stops. Lurking up at the SLTA Headquarters (apparently she’s a self proclaimed traffic authority for Second Life) at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Putiki%20Fold/32/52/487 we have a lovely box full of pointers.

Each pointer is named for the sim it points to and indicates one of the points AnnMarie Otoole uses to exploit permissions in Second Life and to go against community decency.
