I’m sure if you read my blog, you will undoubtedly read many others.
Well a recent scandal which was posted over several Stardoll blogs, just involving certain well-known members of Stardoll. When this was first revealed there were very graphic photos posted, exposing far too much and should have never been posted on such a blog in the first place. Turns out it was all a pack of lies, the culprit was found – people have moved on.
Just goes to show, don’t do anything stupid online – you’re going to get caught in the end, no matter what.
I don’t want to give my personal opinion over this, I don’t know those members and I hardly know what actually happened. Plus it was just an idiotic thing for that person to do such a thing. Why do people crave virtual fame to such a large extent?
I can understand, some people use Stardoll to fill a gap in their lives. Whether that may be friendships, creativity or acceptance and so many more. I guess members of Stardoll are still caught up in the social circuit of Stardoll known as “Elites”. I know what it feels like, I was once there but I would have never have dreamed of doing what this person has done – imagine planning to commit such a repulsive act.
Blogs always mention this word “famewhore”, basically a person who desires fame to such an extent. I’m not very keen on the term but I suppose they prefer to use one single word rather than use a-person-who-really-wants-to-be-noticed-on-a-virtual-world on every post they write. This appetite for popularity on Stardoll has been increasing dramatically, at a very alarming rate. People hacking others, scamming Rares, scamming codes, exchanging codes for an article on themselves, posing, exposing, “trashing” each other, creating anonymous blogs to trash each other etc. etc.
Isn’t this all going slightly out of hand?
Well slightly is a little understatement.
People have become so over-obsessed with this idea of popularity on Stardoll or just causing trouble, anguish and mayhem to others, that it’s coming to the point where certain members are posting pornographic screenshots on blogs that probably hit over thousands of views everyday, visited by many young teenagers – even kids younger than 11 years of age. People can get caught up in the excitement of exposing a scandal, especially if it’s a very well-known member of the Stardoll community but when does common sense ever kick in? Do people never consider another human being’s feelings? Do they not know that posting such material may cause such a large outpour of rage and distress?
With “exposing” another member, readers think that what they are reading is true and factual. They believe that all these stories written about certain members on Gossip Blogs, some of which perceive well-known members in a bad light. They begin to spread hateful comments/rumours towards those members – even though they do not know them personally, nevermind even chatting to them on one single occasion. I thought this craze has died out. I guess I was wrong.
I know many people have called the members involved all sorts of names. People make mistakes frequently. Hopefully they have learnt something from this experience and will think twice before doing such things.
I just think it’s all becoming too much, we all created this Stardoll society and it’s never going to be perfect but after this controversy and especially what the material was based upon – are we all getting too caught up in this virtual world that we will go to extreme lengths to achieve what we feebly yearn for?
Who knows what we might see next in the future. I certainly don’t want to read it.
