Britbong Banned On Twitch (again)

On Wednesday, Britbong tried to set up for a twitch steam only to discover he was banned.  He had recently switched to twitch because he was banned from YouTube.  He was apparently banned on twitch for evading a ban on one of his side-accounts (probably used for twitch raids)

I don't know if this is related to the issues brought up on the baited podcast, but it's interesting that the day after Keemstar makes his triumphant return to Twitch, Britbong gets banned on the same site.

phooey jaggernov was suspended for making a sign of his own to cover the sign linking noobs to the Torley Linden videos on secondlife.com, despite the fact that help island was decommissioned years ago and noobs are no longer sent there.

Did Britbong Mass Report Large Twitter Accounts

A lot of high-profile twitter accounts of large and popular youtubers are being suspended.  Recently on the Baited Podcast, Keemstar, ColossalisCrazy and Anything4Views discuss that some single person is behind it and who they think it is.

Even though they never give the name of their suspect, a lot of people are assuming it's Britbongreturns. So the question remains: Is Britbongreturns and what remains of his fanbase mass reporting twitter accounts to get them suspended?

I know Britbong did this to my twitter account.  He admitted it.  To be fair, I rarely used my twitter account and when I did it was just to be shitty to somebody, so it couldn't have been hard to take down since I wasn't actually using it legitimately.  He also bragged about doing it to TheBadGuys and Kopy who did use theirs legitimately, so he's clearly capable of it--at least with smaller accounts.  Does that mean he did it to the names mentioned in the podcast, including his former friend ColossalisCrazy?

In my opinion, Britbong certainly would do it if he could.  He has an issue with all the names mentioned and he's certainly a vindictive shit.  The question is: could he?  Possibly.  Britbong has five or ten adolescents who pretty much do anything he wants just because they're bored and he generally wants them to do snarky things that most teenage boys do anyway.  He's also capable of running bots.  He used to use them to artificially inflate his viewer numbers when he streamed on youtube.

Part of the blame has to lie with Twitter though.  If their reporting system is this easy to exploit then Twitter earns part of the blame.

The thing Britbong doesn't understand is: his "fans" aren't loyal.  They come to me with shit about him all the time, just because they find it funny to see anybody get fucked over, even if it's Britbong.  Most of the time I don't publish it, because it's just not interesting.

It was one of his friends who brought me the story of him doxing his ex Paravania, not somebody from Secondlife, as I'm sure he suspected.  If he thinks they're not going to also go to Keemstar and Colossaliscrazy and spill the beans to them, he's just wrong.

Aubreyxx Wins Again: on Trump



Broccoli was still wearing his costume from work...

Aubreyxx 1, Broccoli and Cheche 0 -- at least that's how the hub had their liberal-conservative showdown scored.

The Trump supporting duo didn't know what they were getting themselves into when they decided to go head to head in a public political debate against everyone's favorite princess, Aubreyxx. The details of the debate are irrelevant but watching Aubreyxx outsmart, outwit, and out debate , multiple misinformed and under educated citizens probably left most of the hub with an impressive hard on.

CheChe143 Gothly Can't Help Lying

This is what an actual 15 foot 800 lb alligator looks like
Today she claimed to have captured and released a 15 foot alligator.  There's just one problem.  The record alligator in Florida was 14 feet 3 inches.

It's also fairly impossible to catch an alligator while on secondlife.

Remember Kids: if CheChe143 Gothly is speaking, she's lying.

**update** because people laughed at CheChe143 when she lied about AN ALLIGATOR and told me about it, she had a bit of a melt down and decided to threaten Demi, who was probably the only person not laughing at her stupid story.  Gives you an idea of what sort of person CheChe is.

This was supposed to be funny.  It's a story about a fucking fake alligator and CheChe decided to go after Demi, the one person who only wanted to be her friend.

Here's an easy way to monitor who CheChe plays League of Legends with

Make Your Gacha's Self Replicate

Want to make more money from your rare Gacha's?

Linden Lab confirmed today that a region crash using certain viewers can result in a duplication of some inventory items, including NO COPY items like rare Gachas. 

I've tested this and it does work.  I'm not going to give out instructions because I don't want some of my friends banned, but if Linden Lab doesn't address this soon, it could be the end of the gacha economy. 

What CheChe143 Gothly Believes Vs Reality (Why CheChe143 is an idiot)

CheChe143 believes Trump's war on opiods will include:

  • Turning all your opiates in to the federal government by Saturday
  • A wall to prevent opiates coming in from Mexico
What Trumps State of Medical Emergency actually includes
  • Patients in isolated areas such as Appalachia will have greater access to opioid treatment through telemedicine and receive prescriptions without seeing a doctor in person, as is generally required under current law.
  • The Department of Health and Human Services will speed up its hiring process to have people in place to help states in crisis.
  • The federal government will allow states to temporarily shift the use of federal grant funds to target those with opioid addictions.
  • The Department of Labor will make Dislocated Worker Grants available to those with opioid addictions and others who were dislocated by this health crisis or who have had trouble finding work because of their addiction.
  • The government will spend money from the Public Health Emergency Fund, although it has only $57,000 in it.
Result: Cheche143 is a fucking delusional idiot who doesn't watch or understand the news

Under-funded, and without a plan.  Trump is kind of doomed for failure.

apparently she sucks at League as well



Britbong's New Channel In Trouble Already

Determined to keep some kind of presence on Youtube, Britbong made a new channel a couple weeks ago, after his main channel was banned in August.

This new channel has already had videos flagged off Youtube.  I never saw the videos, so I have no idea if their removal was appropriate or not.

Without a network, and a very small subscriber base (only 3% of his old subscribers followed him to the new channel) Britbong will find it very difficult to defend himself from this sort of thing.

I don't believe it was people from Secondlife who had the videos taken down.  They would have bragged about it, before, during and after the act.

The group that originally had him banned is still around though.  RussoPlays was probably the most vocal, but there were four or five others who were much more active.  At the time, most of them were already much bigger than Britbong's old channel, and well connected.  They all still have channels in good standing and networks, so this would be pretty easy for them.

I only had the two meetings with these guys, and haven't spoken to them since, so I can't really say for sure, but they are who I would suspect for this latest action.

Only about 17% of Britbong's youtube audience chose to follow him to Twitch.  Usually it's the other way around.  That has to be super frustrating for him.  My guess is: he had a reputation for offensive content and a free-for-all in chat, both of which will get you banned pretty quickly on Twitch.  A Britbong who doesn't break the rules and allow his chat to as well probably isn't all that attractive to his old audience and he hasn't found a new audience yet.

The Destruction of (mademoisellecouture) Elsie London

The true story of how Elsie London began prostituting herself and why.

Recently, we wrote about how Elsie was selling photos of her naked feet to weirdos on secondlife to pay for her bento heads, today we got a glimpse of why.

Elsie is getting dumped.  Her real life husband filed for divorce.  Whether he's divorcing her because she spends so much time on Secondlife, or whether she's spending so much time on Secondlife because he's dumping her we'll probably never know.

What is clear though, he's no longer funding her Secondlife habit, which is how she ended up selling photos of her naked feet to weirdos on Secondlife.

Twenty-fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution

Section 1. In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President.
Section 2. Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.
Section 3. Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.
Section 4. Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.
Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.[

RIP Britbongreturns Again

They got his twitter this time.  No idea who or how or why, but it's gone.  He used it to talk shit on a lot of other Youtubers, so I'm guessing it's related to that.

He's in kind of a classic catch-22.  If he behaves, he loses his audience,   If he doesn't behave, he loses his channel.

When you add up how much it cost to fly the vice president and his wife to the game, plus how much it cost for the extra security (beyond secret service) for the Pence's to attend the game, it cost the US Tax Payers over $300,000 for Mike Pence to walk out of a football game before it began.

Donald Trump Expresses His Opinion On Purto Rico


Actually it's Ed Begley Sr. in the film 12 angry men.  The great Sidney Lumet directed this film in 1957 when Donald Trump was 10 years old.  It tells the story of a Puerto Rican man accused of murder in the city of New York (where Trump grew up) to expose some of the horrific prejudices heaped upon Puerto Ricans in New York at that time.

I mention this because Lumet is a man I greatly admire.  I have all his books and have seen him lecture several times.  I also mention it because Keith Olbermann mentions it in his editorial on Trumps lack luster response to the incredible crisis unfolding in an American protectorate.


So, is Olbermann right?  Does Trump have an inborn hatred of people from Puerto Rico.  There is certainly prescient for it.

Keith Olbermann And Some Facts About Gun Control


Olberman brings out a few points here I didn't realize.

By the time of the shooting in Vegas happened, there had already been more than 300 mass shootings (of more than 4 people) in the US this year.

If I ever knew about Burger's statement about the Second Amendment, it was lost in the national circus of Richard Nixon and my own childhood.  Despite his nominator, Burger is widely held in very, very high regard among both conservatives and liberals.

1/3 of all US presidents have been assaulted (some killed) by US citizens using legally purchased guns.


Below, Jimmy Kimmel discusses the shooting that took place in the town where he personally grew up.

Luciano Pavarotti & James Brown - It's a man's world ᴴᴰ

The Story Of Pixie And CheChe


Before creating cheche143 gothly on Secondlife, cheche found herself a twenty-six year old woman, in a loveless marriage, drinking too much and very lonely.  She discovered there.com.  A social game-platform that allowed her to speak to other human beings and fill her empty hours.

It was there she met Colossal, who she believed to also be in his 20's, despite his graveled voice.  He drank a lot and had an Australian accent so that was all she needed.   They partnered at There.com and spent nearly a year inseparable.

Colossal's drinking habits matched CheChe's so that became the glue that held their relationship together.  He knew that her drinking lead to the naked dances she would do on skype (even though he refused to cam himself) He particularly liked it when she would separate the mounds of her ample posterior and give him the full fruit-bowl on cam, purring "you like that baby?" hoping for some shred of approval and recognition she wasn't getting at home.

The couple considered themselves the social lions of There.com and decided to broaden their horizons and create Secondlife accounts.  CheChe insisted that they make matching names (because that would just be sooo cute) and they became Cheche143 and Raven Gothly.  Mr and Mrs.

CheChe preferred Secondlife to there.com because it had more fashion options, but soon noticed that her internet partner was distancing himself from her (much like her real-life partner had before him).  She returned to there.com to find her beloved Colossal had partnered to a 13 year old girl.

Shattered, CheChe threw herself into Secondlife, seeking virtual employment at every music and exotic dance club she could find, and deeply embroiling herself in the waterhead social life, where she met a sixteen-year old autistic Swedish boy with strong homosexual tendencies.

She also met Wintown.  Wintown immediately took a dislike for CheChe.  He began to investigate every angle of her life that he could, soon discovering her former relationship with Raven Gothly, who came to Secondlife after being banned from there.com for dating a 13 year old girl.

It was Wintown who discovered Raven was not 28 like he said, but 45 (although CheChe was probably the only one who believed he was 28) He also found that Raven Gothly had a taste for age-play and Wintown soon began working to have Raven Gothly Banned for the above.

Once banned, Raven registered the Pixie Khitan name and recreated himself on Second life as a woman.   CheChe would return to Secondlife, spending every waking hour online, serially pursuing relationships with unusual men as her real-life relationship was still in a shambles.

Protesting The National Anthem In Sports

15 years before the Start Spangled Banner was adopted as the US National Anthem, the first recorded instance of anyone playing The Star Spangled Banner during a sports competition was the 1918 Baseball World Series, where it was playing during the 7th inning stretch.

Playing the song before sporting events didn't become commonplace until the post WWII years, where it was soon adopted not only by baseball, but also football, hockey and basketball.

Use of the National Anthem to protest US Racial politics began the 1968 Olympic games when Tommie Smith and John Carlos held up their gloved fist during the playing of the national anthem in protest of US racial policies at that time.

In US Law  Title 36 U.S. Code § 301 (not passed until 1998) specifies the legal behavior expected during the playing of the national anthem, but is generally held that the first amendment right of Free Speech succeeds the code, except for uniformed members of the military.

Giving any song or symbol the emotional power we invest in the flag and the national anthem make them a ripe platform for protest.  Getting angry over the protest (the way the president has with the NFL) only helps the protest reach a larger audience.

The Trump presidency is energizing the left in ways that a Clinton victory never could.  His response to their demonstrations only makes it worse, and he can't seem to keep himself from taking the bait, so expect more demonstrations in the future.

Lindens Remotely Monitoring Voice

Only suspected before, we can now confirm that Linden Lab is monitoring voice at Arapaima and Nelsonia Safe Hubs, Help Island Public and (private) Free Speech Hub, listening for "harassment", "disclosure" and "ban evasion".

While this option is certainly provided for in the TOS, many people still consider it an invasion of privacy.  Monitoring Linden Owned areas, I can understand, but I do have a problem with them monitoring voice at private sims.

I do think they should give people the courtesy of alerting them when Linden Lab remotely monitors voice.  As it stands now, it's a bit like having a telephone operator remotely monitoring your conversations.

The voice feature in Secondlife is not operated by Linden Lab.  It's a contract service by a company named Vivox.  Vivox also provides voice for other games like WOW and PUBG.  They also provide a text chat system, but Linden Lab still uses their own, more or less based on the IRC format.

I Really Didn't Mean To Start This

So, several days ago I reported that Britbong flagged down a 3 year old recording of him I had on Soundcloud.  At the time I laughed and said I didn't even know you could do that.

Apparently other people saw what I wrote and decided to try it for themselves, but against Britbong, so now almost all the recording's on his channel are gone.

What I'm taking from this, based on the email I got from Soundcloud when they took my recording down, is that Soundcloud is for legitimate uses and they have little patience for troll bullshit.  I can't really blame them.

I really had no intention to start the ball rolling to pretty much remove everything from his soundcloud (I didn't even report him) but you have to admit it's pretty funny.  I had one single recording I forgot all about, but he had dozens and dozens.
