motherboard: Sanders' spot is in the sim (Second Life region) of Caspoli...with a Bernie 2016 banner that can be seen from satellite. by Wagner James Au
'It's a Roman-themed hangout space in a peaceful meadow, where Bernie supporters often gather to share news of their favorite candidate. But lately, the place has been besieged by pro-Trump griefers. I first read a report of anti-Bernie griefing from roving furry reporter Bixyl Shuftan (yes, that's a thing) and found out it wasn't an isolated incident:
'“There is a picture I managed to capture of one of the flags spewing from a particle dispenser at HQ, left there by one of Trump's supporters when no one was around,” Sanders support group member Macaria Wind tells me, handing over an image file of a Trump swastika.
'But that was only the start. During a Bernie rally in Second Life, Mr. Wind goes on, Trump-supporting demons flew around Bernie’s rally, endlessly typing ”TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMP!" into text chat.
'“Pages and pages of TRUMP! LOL,” Wind tells me. “[O]ne has to laugh at the childishness displayed by some of his supporters. In my opinion, they mimic their candidate. I must add though, what is not a laughing matter are the racial slurs and bigotry witnessed by one group member who visited Trump HQ when there were actually people there.”'
