There are a few estates in Second Life, called NoR, and they are calling themselves a MMORPG, I honestly can't understand how they can consider themselves such after all the GM Corruption I have seen in this so called game of theirs.
NoR was once a cluster of regions in Second Life which had 32 regions in it, now NoR only has 13 Simulators/Estates in it, and the rumor of this is that management broke up and certain people left NoR so they had to downsize because of tier costs.
On a side note: This does remind me about Mortal Online where GM's were accused of being corrupt and helping others in battles and such, which I just quit that MMORPG because it was worse than DarkFall when I played it, but that is an opinion.
what is not a rumor.
In 2010, I found my avatar myself into trouble in NoR over something very stupid, I talked to Synphony Vayandar a person who was part of my group and shared a few (OOC) out of character opinions with them that were somewhat negative towards some of the things in NoR this was via private messages. Because they thought I was wrong they kicked me from the group I was part of for over a year without warning, or reason. So I asked some friends on skype what to do, one of them came in and asked her to be nice in a way she believed was threatening which I read what they sent myself after I asked them to send it to me and didn't see it threatning, and after that I finally spoke to a manager Bizarre Obscure who is a GM, or Admin, and he agreed that they had stepped out of line that the problem was solved, and obviously it was never solved because over 6 months later a weapon of mine broke, so I went back to the NoR sims and was looking for the creator of my weapon to get another one and discovered I was banned from an entire region (Evil) without reason.
If they had followed the NoR Rules as LandofNoR.com says, my ban listing would have been listed on the site explaining a reason, however there was no listing ever placed on NoR, and so I decided to go register on their forums, and I posted under their Repent your sins, and your soul shall be saved forum section, an appeal, and apology for my OOC comments and took responsibility for my own actions which were clearly not my fault, but did such to make things better. (Their GM's) told me it was under investergation and it has been like that for over 4 weeks there was never any investergation.
About two weeks after my appeal, someone who knew about my post came into their NoR simulators and started griefing Norians without a reason, they spammed my email full of hateful comments using their Estates/Simulators in Second Life, and still as of today it is unclear to how this griefer group got my information such as if Synphony called the griefers on me, or if the griefers saw my post on the search engine as they Moderators of the LandofNoR.com forums allowed the google bot to crawl their page, and my entire appeal which I considered private was posted on the google search without my consent.
Okay, so here is what I know about the griefing.
I was in a public sandbox one day, and I noticed that someone illegally stole, or cloned content of others by the name of Synphony Vayandar, and Ergoth Ehaniel in SL, as there was a person named Synphony Resident, exact same profile almost except picks giving out stolen goods in a public sandbox, and griefing everyone with prim spam and such, as well as placed a box of stolen items on Nix giving them out to all the newbs for well over 3 months before I finally got it removed by a red flag, and reporting it to LL. I filed an abuse report on Synphony Resident, as soon as I saw this and at first choose to ignore it until a friend contacted Bizarre Obscure and told him about it. He immediately accused me of being the one behind the box without any evidence, at which point I myself asked for the log of that evidence to be destroyed in good faith that he was pissed off, and wouldn't do it again.
Then the attacks from their Simulators started spamming me with green messages daily sometimes saying rude things to my avatar, so I finally went to their NoR region and I requested an admin, or a (GM) at which point they told me they couldn't do anything but asked me to file an abuse report with Linden Lab, so I did, andI sent the (GM) the snapshots, and logs of this as well, and they did nothing, so I asked for an invite to the NoR groups so I could report future incidents or possibly get help if others abused it, they invited me.
Two days later I was hanging around in NoR at Sins club a public club at the top of the skybox meeting old friends, and still trying to find out who was behind the griefing and sending me the vulgar messages, and then I got Teleported home without warning by a (GM) supposedly Bizarre Obscure, which at first I thought I accidently hit the teleport home button but tried to teleport back and it said I was banned ( Without any reason), so I sent an IM, and he says (Management) decided to extend the ban over every Estate, which happend over one persons vendetta towards me because of something they didn't like which in my opinion not a fact they might be a griefer, and might have alternate accounts themselves as they sent me an IM accusing me of things without any type of evidence of spreading rumors in which I talked to them without saying a single curse word tried to explain what I thought was going on and they did nothing but not except anything.
Dasein Noyes, is the head leader of the faction Lacedaemon, where two members of his Synphony Vayandar, and Ergoth Ethaniel, are rumored based on the evidence currently provided to be doing illegal activities in this game which break our community standards/TOS, however the (GM's) of NoR do nothing because Dasein Noyes has been a part of the community for a long time, so they refuse to investergate the issue, or look into anything at all period and say simply that I am guilty myself of griefing myself, and griefing other people without any evidence, yet I myself have been collecting evidence since day one after I saw what management was doing, and am going to share the details about their (GM) corruption.
Also I was threatend by Luxa Budan the estate owner, called a Domestic Terrorist without any reason, and that being said simply because of some stuff posted in my profile that is political and such, but nothing threatening in a way to even be called such they said they would call someone to deal with us, and in virtual games like this we here griefers all the time, or trolls hey we are going to call the FBI and stuff like this, I totally laughed it off, but even now the (GM's) of LandofNoR.com are in violation of the Second Life TOS/Community Standards, breaking players privacy, and rules, and I will show proof of all of this below.
http://pastebin.com/Ptf5Keq4 The Opinions with Synphony which she decided to make such a big deal out of an opinion that should have been kept private, but instead created a lot of issues for myself, which lead into all this griefing, and abuse from the GM's of NoR.
http://pastebin.com/xw9LDDQy Here is the chat of being told I would be in trouble by someone who was no GM based on what I was told by an actual GM.
http://pastebin.com/xCgyTpGB Here is the log where he said that everything would be okay, and ignore whatever I was told by the evil admin's/GM as they were not in charge of NoR ( the only thing I left out was some private chat.)
http://tinypic.com/r/2mdmko4/7 Here is a snapshot of the root prim given out in the sandbox as a freebie.
http://tinypic.com/r/xdz28w/7 here is a snapshot of the Copybot items with their names on it.
http://tinypic.com/r/14ax4qd/7 Here is another one with the other persons name.
http://tinypic.com/r/11lslfm/7 here is a snapshot of both their profiles together.
(The above Snapshots do not prove that these people are responsible for any griefing, although with synphony cursing me out it does not make them look any better as far as being innocent, although it is possible that the griefers forged this, as well as the griefing that took place in NoR, considering that Synphony, or Ergoth had nothing to do with it and that this was all the act of random Trolling because someone saw my post on their site which was supposed to be private. The fact is that they could be innocent of all of this except the part where they kicked me and caused me the first issue, but the fact is no one knows for sure except them, myself, and the GM's playing the Blame Game which either way it all just needs to stop and be dropped all together unless there is actual proof.
http://tinypic.com/r/2luxu1e/7 Here is the picture of me getting spammed in SL from their Estates without reason.
http://tinypic.com/r/2hxn8y0/7 Here is a picture of me getting spammed in my email when I had Im's set to go to my email from their simulator.

http://pastebin.com/jJXvmJGv Here is the log of myself getting cursed out by Synphony.
http://pastebin.com/EhDBPHEQ Here is a copy of the communication of the email they last sent me accusing me making a post on some random site I don't even know which is operated by Abe Tristan, and the IP as well doesn't even match mine, or any of my modems which I have two modems, and a router which are my primary gaming routers for playing MMORPGs incase one goes down. ( Keep in mind that as a GM he is not supposed to send any details including IP addresses, or information like this to anyone, details are supposed to be kept private, but he has violated the rules of the service bigger than I ever have) He also clearly pointed accusations at my avatar, and name without any exact reason or proof of such except hersey logs which prove nothing other than griefers griefing in my name saying Hey I am Goth and I am gonna grief everyone.
http://pastebin.com/U0ZajtRf Here is the log of Bizarre Obscure and his accusations agaisnt myself talking to others without consent he also shows disreguard for other people, and our SL community as a whole.

http://tinypic.com/r/2m2v2oi/7 Here is the second snapshot of the same email.
Okay so here is the thing.
Based on the (GM) view of their simulators LandofNoR.com I am a griefer who would use my own sl Name on their blog and make an appeal, and apolgize my my actions which were really nothing to begin with, then I would risk getting my SL account banned which has been griefed by other griefers in the past suspended perma banned twice and I got back because LL found no wrong doing, and I would risk loosing my entire inventory of over $300 USD of purchased goods just to grief, when the fact is if I were the griefer I could have just never said anything played like nothing ever happend, and griefed them and they would never have known why they were getting griefed, but most importantly can they explain this.
Can they also explain why their Covenant is in violation of the SL community Standards where they are allowed to Disclose IM's without consent in SL, (GM's) in other words are allowed to get involved in a persons private business without asking or consent just because one person decides it is okay for such, They are also above the Norian rules, as their site tells people they are not above the rules, and I will prove this as well for everyone to see which is listed on their site right here.
http://www.landofnor.com/game-guide/administratrion/admin-code-of-conduct Admin Code OF Conduct. aka (GM's)
The major rules Bizarre Obscure has broken is Do not disclosed privileged information, by him sending me that least email, he disclosed the IP address of someone else without consent, and based on those rules as well they log other players IP addresses without consent of all parties, or people knowing about such from what I know I was never informed that my IP address was ever logged while playing in NoR, unless this is talking about their forums.
http://www.landofnor.com/game-guide/land-of-nor-rules/land-of-nor-rules Here are the rules of NOR which if you carefully read throught all their rules FAQ it is somewhere about Im's where GM's are allowed to investergate it without the consent of all parties, yet GM's or Management says if you have issues to please take it to IM's out of character, but yet they get involved in disputes which start in a private Im without consent, and on top of this they break the SL Community Standards.
• Provide access to NoR staff for the purposes of rule/covenant eforcement as well as agreeing to agree in advance for staff to investigate IMs and gather evidence. Privacy will be respected as much as possible by staff. (This was wrote in their covenant, which can be found here as I reposted a copy of what I have.)
http://pastebin.com/wKGrEbM4 Their Covenant.
In the end, I have requested that the GM's quit talking behind my back spreading false accusations/rumors, and I have asked that these false charges be dropped unless they have evidence of me griefing them which clearly they do not as this happend well over a month ago, and if they did I would have been banned from SL, or suspended from SL, but I haven't yet. I have Abuse reported everything that I know they have done which is a violation of the community standards, as well as anything I know about the griefers, and over all it seems that the whole issue has got a lot better over time as LL more than likely banned the griefers/trolls, but staff still thinks it is okay to accuse, and pull out accusations/rumors break their own rules, and that this harassment all because of one individual who didn't like something is okay, well my response to the GM's and staff with all respect is that it is not okay, and that I have proven that Bizarre Obscure of NoR is not a responsible GM of NoR in many ways, as well as the GM corruption. My only threat to Bizarre Obscure was to expose, and tell the Truth about all of this, which clearly I have done today as I am sick and tired of their rumors, their refusing to deal with an issue that has been on going for almost a year now and came up behind my back. While I respect and understand that these people have the right to ban a person for any reason or no reason at all following the SL Terms OF Service, or Community Standards, They do not. 1. Have a right to peoples private Im's. 2. Have a right to put disclaimers in covenant or get involved in private issues. 3. Spread false accusations and rumors behind a persons back.
I spent weeks filing abuse reports on these griefers, and within this time only a handfull of people I know have spoken to staff members 2-3 times about an issue, anything else is really just griefers/trolls, and the ignorance of management.
So my advice to everyone looking for a MMORPG in Second Life, avoid NoR because you could become a target of the griefers at random, or this exact same thing could happen to you, and create a lot of problems for you. At least I would say avoid NoR until Sicarius Fegte, or Luxa Budan deal with these issues which GM's/Staff feel is right to spread accusations behind other peoples backs and such without proof.
What I want, it is quite simple, I want the Owners of this so called MMORPG to take responsibility for their Staff Members actions, look into this issue, and deal with it, and stop dealing with issues that occur in a private Im's, respect our TOS/CS, and if someone is doing something outside their Simulators, it is not their responsibility to deal with the issue, so if anything beyond local chat occurs in their Estate, then it is not their problem or responsibility beyond filing an abuse report, and of course they are allowed to help others, but clearly as Bizarre said he doesn't care about anyone, doesn't care if SL goes to hell in a war, as long as it doesn't include NoR.
So I am going to say here to end this post, that if the GM's of this game, or Staff has any actual evidence of me griefing, or breaking the rules on their 13 simulators then I would love to see it, and no I don't want to hear that the evidence is this random griefer came by said oh Hi im X person here, and I did this for them and such like that, I want actual proof.
Oh: On another side note, having knowledge in computer hardware, knowing anything about your operating system, being a Nerd, gamer, or knowing about Networking in any way makes you look guilty just for knowing about such and not being a complete newb, or dummy.
I hope that this post will help others to avoid the same problems that I have experienced with this so called MMORPG, and Thanks.
