A very out-of-character post here, and I will be blunt: Caledon has at least one genuine, certifiable jerk. Someone named Catan Shamrock, born 6/14/2009. Sure, maybe he's an alt, but I'd like to think anyone who has been in Caledon for substantially more than two weeks would have some good manners rub off on him.
I explore, right? I wander from place to place, seeing fabulous builds, neat exhibits, cool ways to be entertained, that sort of thing. And I take pictures, add a little text, and post it on this blog, to entertain myself and, I hope, entertain others. I spent part of this afternoon and evening wandering through Wellsian, in and about Miss Aevalle Galicia's builds. As Miss Galicia owns a good chunk of Wellsian, and builds both vertically and horizontally, this took some time.
At the edge of Wellsian, where it abuts Morgaine, I attempted to pass to the next piece of land, only to find I was blocked. Further investigation showed I was banned - specifically, from a property owned by a Catan Shamrock. Mr. Catan Shamrock then appeared, asking if he could help me. I inquired politely what I might have done to earn a ban from his property.
He responded by erecting first one, and then several, large "Private Residence" plaques, as shown in the picture above. This seemed like an incomplete answer - I certainly had not gone inside his residence - indeed, I had never set foot on his property, because he banned me before I got there!
[16:30] Kathy Jameson: I was exploring this area of Wellsian/Morgaine.
[16:30] Kathy Jameson: I came across your property.
[16:31] Kathy Jameson: May I inquire what I did to be banned from it?
[16:33] Catan Shamrock: Get? Got It? Good? now stop creeping around the neighborhood like a suspect
[16:34] Kathy Jameson: My dear sir, I apologize if you think I am creeping about the neighborhood.
[16:34] Kathy Jameson: But don't you think this is taking it a bit far?
[16:34] Kathy Jameson: People have builds that they would like others to explore, no?
[16:35] Kathy Jameson sighs and thinks life is too short for this.
So I left. But I'm bothered by the idea that simply looking at other people's property - property that has signs inviting public inspection - means that I'm "creeping around the neighborhood."
Mr. Shamrock seems affiliated with the Caledon Catgirl Brigade (this is possibly what got his knickers in a wad, as I was exploring the CCB builds earlier in the day - what, it's now secret?). Frankly, I'm surprised that that organization would have this man in their midst.
