SaveMe Oh In Your Last Will

Are you about to die or do you have plans to leave the planet in the near future then there is an option to put your avatars in your last will. Ryan Schultz did so a few weaks ago when he was afraid to be not very long among the living. And he asked in his blog who want to be in his last will to take over his avatars in case he would leave the lush Linden meadows.

As I am already the owner of a stable of left-over avatars one more or less wouldn’t be a problem so I wrote him a request.

I would be glad to take over an avatar as we have all our Second Life to celebrate virtual life. Your avatar will become part of the SaveMe Oh army of freedom fighters… If you like the idea that SaveMe Oh takes over a part of you, please send me your most outspoken avi. I wish you a full life as long you are on this world.

And then the living dead start to tremble:

He wrote: “Among the 15 or so people who have contacted me so far about the possibility of inheriting one of my Second Life avatars via my will, the most intriguing request came from the SL celebrity, performance artist, and perennial provocateur SaveMe Oh (blog, Twitter, Flickr, Vimeo).

Which raises a couple of interesting questions:

1. Who is SaveMe Oh, and why does she have such a reputation as a troublemaker, or “freedom fighter” as she puts it?

2. And just who is my most outspoken avatar?

Which raises a couple of interesting questions:

And just who is my most outspoken avatar?

I want you, my blog readers, to weigh in with your opinions. I need everybody to fill me in here and provide some historical context before I make this particular decision.

Why should I leave SaveMe Oh my Velcro Zipper avatar in my will? Why not? Let’s hear your thoughts and opinions on the matter! I’m genuinely curious to hear what you think. Thanks in advance!

UPDATE 7:00 p.m.: Well, I certainly got a lot of feedback from various people, mostly negative. I had been willing to give SaveMe Oh the benefit of the doubt, but many of you consider her to be nothing more than a griefer, and they warn me to consider what I am doing more carefully. So I will.

One person even went so far as to criticize me for wanting to leave my SL avatars to other people in my will in the first place, accusing me of being “furiously in need for attention”. This made me angry, and I told her that I have already explained what I am doing and why I am doing it in my blog, and I don’t feel the need to explain myself further. Either you get it, or you don’t. If you don’t get it, and all you feel you can do is criticize, then so be it.

Now I have a question for Ryan Schultz. Do you think this is the work of a griefer or an artist?
