365 days of SL, day 76:

One of the weird things you'll sometimes come across on SL is people in random locations, doing (by all appearances) nothing at all.

Presumably, some of them are just AFK, but I don't think that's it, usually. The girl above was floating above the FP Enigma sim for hours; I've also encountered people e.g. sitting on the ocean floor, and there's one spot in Jeogeot Bay and one SL user who's *always* sitting there, never with anyone else, and never actually doing anything. I'm not really getting it.

On the other hand, as long as people don't try and enter your chat range (20 m) so they can surreptitiously listen in on your (open chat) conversations, there's no harm in it.

Location: FP Enigma (0, 63, 20)

Yes, I have them turned on, and yes, I get that, too. :) And if people keep on looking at me (or anyone in our group) for longer than a couple of minutes, I actually IM them and ask if there's a reason for it, too. :)

The girl in the above screenshot wasn't looking at anything specific or doing anything, though, as far as I could tell.

How curious! Still, I suppose if you want to just hang out while idle, or maybe chatting away, there's nothing in SL that makes hovering any more effort than just standing somewhere slumped forwards. ^_^;

True! Or even sitting on the ocean floor, somewhere out in the middle of nowhere, with noone and nothing around, as some people are also wont to do... :)
