When moth_wingthane and I wanted to go explore last night, he suggested we visited a place he'd landmarked, called "oberona station". When he got there, though, he got greeted by a message telling him he had ten seconds to leave; apparently, it's been replaced by something else now.
I'm not easily deterred by such things, though (quite the opposite; I tend to see them as a bit of a challenge), so I asked for a copy of the landmark and teleported there myself. And it turned out that the message is really just that — a message, an empty threat, with nothing actually happening if you overstay your welcome. So I stuck around for a few minutes to see what the area was like, at least; a pleasant enough place, all in all, with vegetation, a few bits and pieces here and there (like the little gazebo and the bridge in the above shot) and all that.
I didn't stay for long in the end since I still respect it when someone wants to be left alone (even if there wasn't anyone around). On the other hand, Second Life DOES offer you more effective ways of doing that; if you want privacy, just set your parcel to be non-public, with a whitelist for access, and everyone who's not on said whitelist will literally be unable to enter it. In fact, that's what happened just yesterday, with the parcel with the waterslide on it that I originally wanted to take a closer look at.
Putting up a box that spams you with messages instead seems a little obnoxious to me, but hey — who am I to judge.
