It looks like Zfire wants me off his forum, banning the IP I use to read there and all. Luckily my trusty spy network of ninja attack trout were able to get me this masterpiece:
Options to eject users with streaming off are because streaming off is a popular griefer myth, and a great way to weed out people in a club or media area who clearly are not there for the music or other media. It is also a great way to smite such griefers.
The hearing impaired are hearing EMPOWERED with a computer and headphones. If deaf, they be able to enjoy video, or simply feel the beat of music on their skin.
 myth: (2) [COUNTABLE/UNCOUNTABLE] something that people wrongly believe to be true.
I think this is the sense Zfire intends for the word “myth”. Of course the sentence makes no sense. Is he saying that the option to eject users is a myth? Yet one of his own flunkies used this very option, and posted in the technical support forum that it was a disaster. Is Zfire perhaps pretending that turning media off does not protect you from IP scanning by RedZone? in which case, we see once again that he is a fibber.
Of course, banning people with media off was bound to be a disaster. One detects media off passively. You cannot ask the client to tell you the media is off, because the client is not THAT insecure. So to know media is off, you send it a parcel media URL and wait for a connect to your database.
But Zfire’d database is flaky too, and the SQL server keeps getting overloaded (not so much last week when no scanning was happening, but previous weeks the server was constantly refusing connections). Thus there are at least 2 reasons (and in fact many more) why the server would get no update from a user. Reason 1 is they have media off, and reason 2 is that they have it on, but the database is too overloaded to accept the scan results. Some other reasons are: (3) the RedZone probe tries to send parcel media updates from a parcel in which it has no such permission, (4) filtering software filters out the spyware connection whilst still allowing parcel media to play.
So all in all, if you ban people for not playing parcel media, you will also ban plenty of people who ARE playing it. Oops… more “collateral damage”.
 This is me btw. I run SL with sound off nearly all the time. I go to clubs to be social with friends. I chat with them and hang out. I don’t listen to the music. Neither do I grief anyone of course, but that doesn’t matter. I am collateral damage.
 Smite. What a lovely word. It is Old English (from Smitan, which is, aptly, a strong verb in Old English. Old English had strong verbs and weak verbs. The weak ones are what we now call regular verbs, and the strong ones were irregular. Just like Zfire to use an IRREGULAR verb, I must say.) Oops…who poked me? Oh was I boring you? sorry…
 The hard of hearing are being empowered by being forced to listen to tinny music through headphones and chatspammers going “weeee” and “woohooo” and other such inane comments? You know that can be really bad for tinnitus. Clueless nincompoop.
 So if you are deaf, you are expected to turn on your parcel media, download huge volumes of data (which many users have to pay for) and turn the volume up high enough that things vibrate sufficiently so that you can enjoy getting vibration white finger whilst playing in SL? Note these deaf people will not hear the neighbour banging on the door asking them to turn the volume down!
Just to be clear, I ran this past a disability and equalities specialist I work with and she was quite clear that if any company had a policy such as this in the UK they would be liable to prosecution under the disability discrimination act. The USA has similar laws.
