Is Zimmerman behind the Jumpman Lane Avatar?

We were on this phony’s heels by mid February. We caught him red handed using youlikehits.com to create a fake following on Twitter. He wanted everyone to think he was so important! Then his last post on February 22nd left us to wonder why he stopped posting. The toon-porn-trash magazine he hides behind has yet to produce a new issue despite many failed attempts at a come back.

On February 26th Travon Martin was shot by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. Jumpman Lane was confirmed to be from Florida by some nutjobs on a forum (sluniverse.com) when the forum admin gave up multiple ip addresses Jumpman Lane had posted from before being banned for making threats of violence against some posters on the website.

We know enough about Jumpman Lane to know that he smells of Elderberries. His rapid dog of a personality sure fits and his displaced anger makes him very obvious. We wonder if George Zimmerman was in Second Life. If so, did he have an avatar named Jumpman Lane? If so that explains Jumpman “Lame’s” absence from Twitter, Second Life, and his cobweb covered blog.

Jumpman Lane: King of Fake Followers

One of the biggest and most obvious reasons to not get involved in Second Life is the deceptive nature of many people you encounter. One of those trick people is a clown who calls himself “Jumpman Lane”. He wants everyone to think of him as “The King of Second Life”. That’s his self given title which is to anyone who’s read his tweets….laughable.

What is a King exactly? Let’s look at some official definitions from Google.

The male ruler of an independent state, esp. one who inherits the position by right of birth
– King Henry VIII

Jumpman isn’t the son of Philip, is he? this definite doesn’t apply then. He doesn’t rule anything at all and he hasn’t inherited Linden Lab from any last will and testament that I know of.

A person or thing regarded as the finest or most important in its sphere or group
– a country where football is king
– the king of rock

I think Jumpman Lane THINKS he is the finest or most important person in SL. That might be the only explanation for it. When you’re so withdrawn from real life and so emerged in a virtual world I guess it’s easy to become this deluded.

The most important chess piece, of which each player has one, which the opponent has to checkmate in order to win. The king can move in any direction, including diagonally, to any adjacent square that is not attacked by an opponent’s piece or pawn

A piece in the game of checkers with extra capacity for moving, made by crowning an ordinary piece that has reached the opponent’s baseline

A playing card bearing a representation of a king, normally ranking next below an ace

A chess piece, checker, or playing card would be another good explanation for Jumpman Lane referring to him self a “King”. He’s certainly a tool to say the least. Whoever he is, he allowed his self to be used (or used the persona of Jumpman Lane) to perpetrate a flaming idiot.

Jumpman Lane is no King in the royal sense of the word. He has no kingdom. He had no crowning ceremony. I’m willing to bet the whole “Stroker vs Jumpman” made for late night television re-run drama is a staged publicity stunt too. He doesn’t have any subjects. He doesn’t even have any followers! He bickers back and forth on Twitter with the same two people about nothing just so he can have his bad boy image while calling names and throwing insults formed with forced bad grammar. It looks like he has over 4000 followers but how many of those Twitter accounts actually pay attention to anything he has to say and didn’t come from youlikehits.com?

I suspected Jumpman Lane was using a social boosting service when I saw his followers jump 200 in less than an hour around the beginning of January. So I did some research and found a few sites that let you sign up and link your Twitter account. You follow other Twitter accounts and earn points. You offer the points you earned to other people for following you. The more points you earn then the more points you have to offer. You can also buy points. So I created a test account on youlikehits.com. After I followed about two pages of Twitter accounts guess who popped up on the next page!

The first PREMIUM entry looks like Jumpman Lane!

Clicking to follow brings up Jumpman Lane on Twitter!

There’s lots of things you can fake in Second Life. You can fake your sex, age, voice, sexual preference, marital status, financial status, physical appearance, and probably a whole lot more. But it’s a lot harder to fake being important. It’s not as easy to make other people think you are important when you don’t have anything to contribute but a played out cartoon porn internet magazine. You have to have backup. You have to have other avatars bowing down to you. It can be faked with alternate accounts and groups very easily. But you still need a audience. I am guessing that Jumpman Lane couldn’t get that audience to listen to his alts go back and forth in chat. So hes using Twitter as a stage for his show. The more followers it looks like he has then maybe the more people will think he’s important. That and his self given title of “The king of SL”.

Jumpman Lane uses youlikehits.com to give the illusion that he has a multitude of followers. He wants everyone to believe he’s important. He wants you to think that there are people who clicked the follow button because they found someone interesting or thought he had something valuable to say. No. Sorry to disappoint. Jumpman Lane is not the King of Twitter or Facebook, and especially not the King of Second Life.

Where is Stroker Serpentine?

“The bigger they are, the harder they fall.” I was reading across some of the blogs relating to Second Life and happened to see some of the usual drama and then on a particular blog. pixelxmagazine.com has published multiple articles about Stroker who appeared recently on “National Geographic Taboo Fantasy Lives” along with his real life family. He revealed that he had online sex with his virtual daughters.

First let’s make sure everyone understands that Stroker’s real life name (Kevin Alderman) is now public information. It’s not something we dug up and are “exposing”. This information has been made public by Stroker through court documents and television. When you watch the video you will see that.

Now that we have that formality out of the way let’s get down to business. In the video Stroker admits to having remodeled his home using the income that he got from Second Life! The narrator says he made millions! But yet the Linden Lab Terms of Service clearly say that:

You acknowledge that Linden dollars are not real currency or any type of financial instrument and are not redeemable for any sum of money from Linden Lab at any time.

Admission that Second Life provides real life income (Contrary to the TOS for SL)

But like we’ve been telling you – this is a LIE! You CAN exchange Linden Dollars for real life money! So now you have documented proof that people are not only receiving sums of money from Second Life but they are receiving enough to remodel their homes! Millions!

So here we have a Second Life entrepreneur who has made a nice living from his income in Second Life and even filed multiple lawsuits against others in Second Life including Linden Lab. Here is the complaint that Kevin/Stroker filed in San Francisco against the Lab. Eros Complaint

The recent documentary went into detail about Stroker’s family life and also his fantasy life in SL.  The most shocking (well maybe not for some) fact that was announced was that Stroker (Kevin Alderman) has virtual sex with his virtual daughters. The names and locations of his virtual family weren’t disclosed except the location of his virtual wife who they said lives in Texas.

Admission of having sex with virtual daughters

After hearing this, you wouldn’t think it was THAT bad until you realize he has a young daughter in real life. Then you see him kiss her on the lips and everything just feels…well…creepy.

Stroker kisses his RL daughter on the lips

Once again, the documentary reiterates he has sex with his virtual daughter

You have to wonder how his family functions when he spends his nights (Only nights?) at the computer in a virtual world with another wife and another family. How can he have a healthy marriage when he is having fantasies of having sex with someone who would call him a father in a virtual world? This behavior “raises a moral red flag” alright. What does his wife think about his behavior?

Stroker’s RL Wife explains her views on SL

Where is she when he is online living out his fantasy life with his fantasy “barbie-like” virtual wife and his incestuous virtual daughters who he has sex with. Is she sitting there in the room watching the computer? We wonder if Stroker realized what kind of documentary he was getting himself into. Somewhere in all this Stroker proclaimed that he was NOT a pornographer! (Did he realize at some point that this story might not be portrayed the way he intended?)

Is Stroker a Pornographer?

In the video above Stroker says he is not a pornographer. But on May 4th, 2007 DigitalJournal.com published an article about Stroker Serpentine which says:

Kevin Alderman, a man known for his porn businesses in the virtual world Second Life speaks out about his thoughts, his character, his virtual city that just sold on Ebay for $50,000.00 and the plans for the future with new enterprise ‘Eros’.
Kevin Alderman is the man behind the Second Life character Stroker Serpentine, a porn mogul who made his name after creating the first in-world sex bed that shows Second Life characters in different sexual positions, pretty interesting hu? Read on.

Meet Stroker Serpentine Second Life’s Porn Mogul

A mogul is by definition a “tycoon” or a very successful business person. Being labeled a “porn mogul” means he is doing business in the field of pornography and is very good at it to say the least. If he was not a pornographer, he had plenty of time to protest the article and even have the statements removed had they not been true.

It was reported that Stroker Serpentine removed himself from Second Life by deleting his account. His Twitter and Facebook accounts cannot be reached. They appear to have been deleted as well. It is our guess (our guess is good as any) that after seeing the documentary and reading the comments of disgust across the web (look at these on Flickr) that he decided to stop pretending to be someone he is not.

Flickr Comments

This is an example of why Second Life needs to be taken seriously as a breeding ground for porn, fraud, and other immoral acts. It’s lucky for us that this person who lives out fantasies in a virtual world of having sex with his offspring revealed his own real life name! People get so saturated in this SL virtual world that they forget what acceptable behavior is. They make their own rules and eventually forget the rules of real life like “it’s sick to have fantasies about having sex with your own daughter”. Then they start making attempts to make “their world” a part of the real world. They try to normalize their behavior. That’s what this documentary demonstrates. Kevin Alderman (Stroker) must have really believed that having fantasies about having sex with his offspring (even if it was in a virtual nature) was acceptable. If he didn’t think it was acceptable then why would he tell the nation? I didn’t see any hint of remorse when he spoke. He looked pretty proud to me. Was he so immersed in Second Life that he actually believed his actions would be acceptable to anyone who wasn’t pursuing their own sick fantasies in SL too?

So is Kevin a pedophile? Let’s look at what a pedophile is.

ped·o·phile  (pd-fl, pd-)

n. An adult who is sexually attracted to a child or children.

He admitted to having virtual sex with his virtual daughters. What do you think?

Stroker once had a Facebook account. It also appears to be gone now. So unless he decides to get another fake name to hide behind on Facebook your (virtual) daughters are safe from this particular character.

An explanation of why Second Life is dangerous:

I sometimes get hate mail in the comment on this blog. Take a look at this gem someone wrote.

Submitted on 2011/05/22 at 5:52 am

Take a look at the following TOS of FB:

Safety

6. You will not bully, intimidate, or harass any user.

7. You will not post content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.

10. You will not use Facebook to do anything unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory.

12. You will not facilitate or encourage any violations of this Statement.

By creating this website, you are violating point 6, as you are actually bullying FB users.

You are violating point 7, by inciting violace and hatred towards FB users.

You are violating point 10, discriminating FB users.

Finally, I’m going to check WordPress TOS and report and red flag this website as encouraging violence, hatred, harrassment and unfortunately, I’m guessing there is no “mental sanity” clause, cause you’d surely be violating that one!!

You see how these Second Life avatars are so caught up in their imaginary world with their made up social rules that they can’t even comprehend basic English? This blog isn’t on Facebook so nothing here is violating any Facebook rules! That’s like saying you’re going to get into trouble for falling asleep under a hair dryer in California when it’s only against the law in Florida. (Yes it’s against the law to fall asleep under a hair dryer in Florida, even if you’re the salon owner.) Yes it might be a silly law but it’s useless in other states!

So all you Second Lifers who come on this blog you need to remember to leave your jaded and irrational way of thinking in your little prim homes. Hey that’s a good idea to do even on Facebook! Leave your meaningless rules in Second Life and quit taking them onto Facebook! The only rules that apply on Facebook are the Facebook rules and this ain’t Facebook!

As far as the WordPress rules, this blog only makes others aware of people who use their Second Life avatars as real names on a website where the rules only allow real names. Why would you sign up to a service using a fake name where people use their real name to network with other people unless you were hiding something, trying to be deceptive, or scam other people? If you want to use your Second Life fake name then use it in Second Life, not on Facebook!

Hundreds of Fake Facebook Profiles Reported and Nuked!

It has been a long 6 months of reporting fake Facebook profiles of illiterate Second Life users but you see? Hard work pays off!

http://www.kimrandall.me/facebook-deletes-thousands-of-second-life-avatar-profiles-without-warning/

All these links show how Facebook just deleted hundreds of fake Facebook accounts that Second Life users opened up when they ignored the rules that say

Registration and Account Security

Facebook users provide their real names and information, and we need your help to keep it that way. Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:

  1. You will not provide any false personal information on Facebook, or create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission.
  2. You will not use your personal profile for your own commercial gain (such as selling your status update to an advertiser).
  3. You will not use Facebook if you are under 13.
  4. You will not use Facebook if you are a convicted sex offender.
  5. You will keep your contact information accurate and up-to-date.
  6. You will not share your password, let anyone else access your account, or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your account.
  7. You will not transfer your account to anyone without first getting our written permission.
  8. If you select a username for your account we reserve the right to remove or reclaim it if we believe appropriate (such as when a trademark owner complains about a username that does not closely relate to a user’s actual name).

This whole process wasn’t the work of only one person. There are many who helped to report many many fake Facebook profiles because Facebook needed more than just one or two people to report to take the profiles down. A official letter sent to the Facebook owners in the mail two weeks ago we hoped helped to.

So please continue to report these fake profiles to Facebook. But to the Secondlife users who think they got their fake Facebook profiles deleted withou warning I say that you did have your warning right here on this blog. Any Secondlife users that still have fake accounts on Facebook you should read the Facebook TOS and delete your account yourself because when we find it, it’s getting reported until it gets nuked!

Linden Lab Pulls the Rug out from Under XStreetSL L$ Exchange

Let’s start this post with a rule that Linden Lab (the makers of Second Life) have on their own site.

You acknowledge that Linden dollars are not real currency or any type of financial instrument and are not redeemable for any sum of money from Linden Lab at any time.

When you play Second Life you can buy and sell things in the game. You can do this with Linden Dollars. The way to get Linden Dollars is to buy them with your real money from their website unless you can get someone to give you some. There is a “LINDEX” where you can buy and even sell your Linden Dollars. It’s similar to a stock exchange. The value of the Linden Dollar goes up and down and you can buy or sell at different rates and hope to buy or sell at a good rate.

When you buy you are turning your real U.S. Dollars into “pretend” Linden Dollars. When you sell you are turning your “pretend” Linden Dollars into real U.S. Dollars. So now you have real U.S. Dollars sitting in your account. What can you do with it? You can “cash out” or “Process Credit”. They send your money to your PayPal account.

Linden Lab had another way to “cash out” until December 15, 2010. It was the XStreelSL Exchnage.  XStreetSL has been closed though since they opened the new Second Life Marketplace. The Exchange had a very fast cashout to PayPal. You could have your real U.S. Dollars instantly! After you cashed out you could go to your PayPal account and see you money there! But the Lindex doesn’t give you your U.S. Dollars so fast. You have to wait up to 5 business days (and sometimes longer). So now the XStreetSL Exchange is closed with very short notice to residents and they are upset!

But before we look at what they have to say and how mad they are let’s look at that rule again that Linden Lab (the makers of Second Life) have on their website…

You acknowledge that Linden dollars are not real currency or any type of financial instrument and are not redeemable for any sum of money from Linden Lab at any time.

Here it is again from a snapshot. it says it TWICE.

But nobody seems to be following any rules anyway! Linden Lab isn’t even following their OWN RULES! It says Linden Dollars are not redeemable for real currency but… PEOPLE ARE TRADING THEIR LINDEN DOLLARS FOR REAL U.S. DOLLARS AND GETTING PAYPAL PAYMENTS!

After the XStreetSL cashout pages were shut off residents started replying to this blog post about the closing. Here is what some of them had to say…

If you’re going to do this, I’m going to miss the instant cashouts. Please add a LindeX option that allows those of us who exchange far over US$5,000 per month, to trade quicker than a week. Not being able to pay my bills or rent because of a 7 day transaction delay is a nightmare. Plus, the 5k limitation is a huge restriction on us heavy business users.

-Zachh Barkley

This is going to cripple me because of the instant cash out being taken away.  When I needed money for medical, grocery or other life expenses, Xstreet was the only way I managed my bills on time.  I can’t predict how much L$ I’ll have at any given time and thusly I can’t ‘schedule’ around week-long transfer times, Lindens.

Please do something about this.  I’d be happy to use the lindex if only it didn’t take me a week to get to paypal and then to my bank account.  PLEASE!

-Tinintri Mistral

Agreed we need LindenX to be Instant or at least next day at the very latest, Many of us have this as a RL income and have a schedule that has been set based on the abilty to cash out instantly. PLEASE resolve this issue that is sure to be one for many of users all over sl.

-CarpeDiem Turbo

I have to make another comment. I just dont understand what the point of taken this away is at this time. It is in place, it is instant, and as you can tell this will effect SEVERAL merchants many who prob will not bother to comment cause it really never does any good, cause you will do as you want and to heck with the people that PAY YOUR SALARY. This will cripple many people having to wait. Luckly I have a PayPal card so as soon as it hits paypal I am good, but still having to wait 3-5 or more days for MY MONEY when I have my bills set on a schedule like many others do is just plain stupid to toss out the instant cashouts when its in place and working.

Why not keep this exchange open untill the lindenX is ready to handle the instant cash outs? I can understand if it takes a few cashouts on lindenX to become instant just like we all had to with xstreet Xchange 2-3 or so cashouts before it was instant. When will LindenX be instant or at the very most 24 hour time frames to get money???????

-CarpeDiem Turbo

this is NOT GOOD for me .. i had money in USD that I needed for my kids Birthday .. and even thought it was not much i was counting on it .. now I have to wait 2 days to get a credit back to my SL account and then 4 more days to process it if Im lucky .. well there goes my sons birthday this weekend … I WISH we could have been warned .. I didnt even know this was going to happen today if I did I would have cashed out yesterday.

-BellaDonna Lemondrop

At it again, well I’ve been here since 2004, doing business since 2004, cashing out over $5000L a day since 2004. I’ve been here through ALL ths absolute crap and bs you people have droppped on us, but this will probably be it!

So now I have to wait 7 days, yeah right I’ve had my money tied up for up to TWO WEEKS though Linden’s exchange crap, (I’ve had to pay extra fees through other bills because I have money and I’m waiting to get MY MONEY, almost got me evicted one month because of it as well, thanks) so now I HAVE NO CHOICE??

Some of us NEED to utilize the instant cash out process and now you are seriously jeopordizing peoples REAL LIVES!

How about we hold up everyone at Linden Labs paychecks for 7-10 days maybe 2 weeks?

Well Linden Labs, you’ve done everything possible over the years to get rid of us old timers that BUILT THIS WORLD FOR YOU, (get some LL freebies and see how crappy they are compared to most of the everyday people’s creations in SL).

No problem, would like to say it’s been fun, but it hasn’t, it’s been a nightmare over the years cause LL just does what ever they want, whenever, and with little regard to who it’s effecting. (except like CNN and NBC and all the big “wood” contracts they could wrap their lips around! You should see how the rules “bend” for these people!)

Time for the next generation to have at it, you win Lindens, Dog is out, 5ifth Order is out, and not like you guys would care, you just keep letting all the artists here get ripped and raped by your system and you just keep up the silly games and sooner or later there will be another one you and people will get tired enough.

-Johnny Dusk

All these people have become dependent on Linden Labs for income. A income that Linden Lab says doesn’t even exist! They don’t give money to people for their Linden Dollars so what are these people so upset about?

Maybe some of these people should stop being so dependent on a service that doesn’t even acknowledge that they are paying people real Linden Dollars when they are. Linden Labs don’t have any obligation to keep paying anyone anything! They can close the Lindex without any notice and delete everyone’s U.S. Dollar transaction history and there’s not much any of these people can do about it except for more whining and complaining.

It is sad that these people who have real lives and real bills and real families spend so much time online in a game and create all this content to make the game what it is and get cut off like that. But what can they expect? They put their faith in a company that put in their terms of service that their in-game money is not redeemable for real money when it is. Maybe residents should look more close at those terms of service to see what else Linden Labs says they don’t do that they are doing.
