An Old Dog with Old Tricks

Often while scanning other SL blogs, you no doubt get curious about those who leave comments on posts and what they may have to say. I happened upon a recent addition to the blogging pool just the other day when I caught a few comments on Shenandoah Saintlouis' blog about both her product and mine that amount to 'I hate your stuff' but done with more useless words.

The culprit is a personage going by the SL name of Enid Trenchcoat.

Of course my first instinct is to click on the name and see the blogger profile. I'm not going to show it here, nor will I link to it as no doubt the person behind this name will advertise him or herself with their own snide comments later. I will say that it has WAY more info than most SL folks typically put on there, which leads me instantly to believe that this is an Alt and meant to grab attention.

My next step in the process... was to see Enid's blog which is of course listed at the bottom of the profile. Not only does the blog only have 1 entry on it so far, but it's all about 'Hey I found crappy stuff to photograph in SL so I gonna blog it.' Yanno what? Already been done. The four most notable are Crap Mariner's SL is full of Crap, TheDiva Rockin's SL Fashion Police, Wrath Paine's Wrath Paine vs Second Life, and of course... HERE!

Ah so my next bit of research led me to see this person's Profile on SL. This... is what I found:

Do you wanna see her blog? Do you wanna see her blog? No I don't, actually... and I've already seen it. Also the very recent Rez Date affirms that this is an alt who can't be bothered to use their original Avatar to do this. Also at only a month old you would hardly know enough about SL to be an authority to bitch about it.

Hey Enid? Leave the Bitching to the Professionals, k?

Most notable?

Well, that's scary.

The fact that they don't understand that it's their own fault they see 'poodle feet' makes it even more laughable. I posted this info there; sculpted prims are rendered client side, so if you have a slow computer or slow internet connection, it's on you if things look bad.

Besides, sculpted prims are the future. What normal person would pick a normal prim shoe over a sculpted prim shoe of the same style?

Open mouth, insert foot.

I didn't look closely enough at the photo of the boots and didn't read the post carefully enough. I didn't realize those boots weren't sculpted. I still prefer sculpted shoes, but these are very nicely done if I couldn't tell.

Laynie and I received a nasty comment on one of the blogs we had that we felt was an attempt to get traffic to Enid's blog so we chose to remove the comment.

I have heard from another blogger that this was attempted on her blog as well but she moderates comments and toss it into the spam folder.

Great work! I am sure many others who have had a hit and run from her are thinking the same thing. Alt.

I love that I am sandwiched between Crap & Wrath.

This name sounds very familiar, but I'm far to busy (lazy) to look...I'll be lookin out tho, my blog is lacking in haters.

It's Tenshi. I'd bet money on it.

Tenshi said...

Not me. I don't need alts. :) Protip: Use the brand spankin' new SL search to find people connected to her or her website.

Tenshi said...

PS - Check her "Dreadful SL" group members. One only has her very best friends in a fledgling group - don't you think? (Friends, or ...?)

It takes a lot of effort to bring the snark on a consistent basis. Another blog about the awful crap one finds in SL? That's the equivalent of a child annoying an adult with a squirt gun. Now, as Foghorn Leghorn was wont to say, "Go away kid, ya bother me!"

Phull of Phail.

Ignore and let the poseur have her 15 minutes. People like that even tire of themselves quickly, hence the alt.

Actually Enid Trenchcoat is Stein Shilova. A foul-mouthed envious wanna be.
