Like a Chai-Tea Enema we now enter a world of confusion and butthurt the likes of which we only vaguely understand. You may be sitting in the waiting room, trashy magazine in your little hand, someone, somewhere, sometime mentioned this was good for you and you have been feeling so down lately. Now you’re here and the cute nurse is explaining everything that’s about to happen to you, you suddenly feel like maybe a glass of Orange Juice and a good nights rest was all you needed.
This is generally how I feel about DOR. I do my best to ignore what goes on behind the borders of the Seychelles isles, but like a great mighty Elephant in a Movie theatre it consistently lumbers around getting into my view so that I can’t see anything else.
DOR is Dogs On the Run, for those of you who don’t know, a group of well-to-do Aviators who’s Philosophy is Fun. Generally they don’t much care about Drama or SL Aviation in general. What they want is to get into the air and have a good time fooling about in Planes doing whatever, Dogfights, Hanger Hockey, Pylon races, Ground Target contests etc etc Essentially everything I’m always rabbiting on that the rest of Aviation should be.
And if that’s all DOR was I wouldn’t have a problem, I’d still be a member.
But there is a second DOR. A DOR that is consistently under attack from dark forces that gather in dimly lit underground rooms, rubbing their hands together and plotting their plots, patting themselves on the back for being so sneaky. This second DOR must unite both it’self and it’s allies in a mass crusade against a great Dragon which threatens all of SL Aviation. But like the great Dragons of Old the threat only exists within the mind of one man, Dor’s leader Da Admiral. Or as he’s also known as Princess Da, by me, and now by you.
I was DOR’s 3rd member, could call me one of the founders had I actually done anything. On it’s birth and through-out the first year of it’s existence DOR’s mission was not to become just another Aviation/fighter group, in fact it didn’t want to be a group at all. DOR was to be an Area of close to a hundred sims of which would be nothing more than to provide a safe place for Aviations to co-exist and fly, free of biased admins, the mockery of the self-proclaimed elitists and without any product bans or judgements as to what should and should not be allowed.
This was DOR before “Shana Day”. I was very honoured, at this point, to call Princess Da my close friend, we would speak at length to each other, giggling like school girls over the troubles and tribulations of the rest of the Community. DOR was principally made-up of the rejects of other groups at first but fully swelled to a substantial size at the collapse of the Flying Tigers. Princess Da charmed the community with his open doors policy and his free hangers for all who came, he proclaimed to be the father of ,the then, recently deceased prodigal child of SL Aviation Toni Silverweb, he was rich, having made his money in Transport and Storage and wanted nothing more than to build a vast region in her honour, regardless of the cost.
What changed was an event known as Shana Day. DOR was built on a principle that it would never favour nor bow to the will of any one builder or company and we had gone far to defend that principle, yet here was Shana Carpool given pride of position in a gigantic hanger set in the centre of the first DOR region, it was set to be the telehub of the region and even rewards were issued to people who bought Shana’s Aircraft. This among other things, example being the Gender segregation of Princess Da’s Flying Vanity Circus, or the DOR Angels as they are more commonly known, as well as Princess Da’s rapid promotion to estate manager of any pretty girl who smiled at him, gave me enough cause to become concerned regarding Princess Da’s intentions. I stepped down as Estate Manager and while I remained a part of DOR I re-focused my energies elsewhere.
The new post Shana Day DOR was now more or less a Parody of it’s own principles. Rather than a Groupless region with no corporate bias it had become a strict woman-only (men tolerated) Fighters club and Display team with a heavy single corporate bias. A full year had passed and Princess Da’s 100+ region had still not been delivered after a series of bundling excuses I had lost patience. DOR was no longer the group I had helped found it was now the ego palace of a paranoid old pervert  who span tales of lies and conspiracies to win loyalty. Quietly I left the group .
Either though sheer paranoia or some vague attempt to install a Common Enemy style system of control over it’s members I don’t know but the following day when I logged in I found my In-Box full of spam.
Spam like this
DonnaBrightstar: FAGGOT ASS BITCHES BURN IN HELL AND FUCKING DIE. I DON’T ACCEPT GAY IN MY LIFE AND GOD WILL PUNISH YOU ALL!!FAGGOT ASS BITCHES BURN IN HELL AND FUCKING DIE.
Which is just one of many IM’s I would find in my In-box each almost every day from various DOR members until it stopped little over a year ago when several of their members were banned for Intolerance and Harassment, Donna included.
Cessna: (Saved Tue 22 Oct 2013 20:22:46) 07 ….i would of thought you would of caught on to the sl aviation bullshit by now …..but you looking down your nose at anyone with a ban threat is a joke furry
Mal (malcious.vuckovic): What are you talking about?
Fear and Paranoia now ruled Princess Da’s mind. Every year he changed the name of the DOR group, from DOR to DOR Angels to DOR 2014 to DOR Spearhead which is uses today. Everytime it would cast off it’s less active members and it’s newer members were greeted by a new Princess Da, this time not rich but humble, significantly younger and hard working who did everything he could to provide a safe heaven from the Drama of the outside Community and support the small time builders (basically Shana) against the corruption and domination over the larger companies (Anyone not Shana).
Every year he would spin out the same story on the 100+ regions he was “getting” as well as the five year long leg surgery he was getting/had and that only through your support could DOR survive and all who donated would be rewarded when the new region came online. he was a Hymn and a prayer away from forming a Cult.
Hi Everyone, Just wanted to fill you in on the status of what Da and I are doing at this time. We are working on some exciting things far beyond anyones expectations for our Group. just bare with us a few more weeks until we can get all the preliminary work done.
In the meantime, Vickster and Barry and Daisy have offered their sims for you to fly, have combat events etc. Until we get our sims ready for you please back them and go to these sims. We need our group to stay together and believe me it will be good for all of you when we finish our plans.
Trinka and Da –2013
Woof Bloody Woof,
Most of you will have had heard of our plans for the future of DOR by now.
Currently we don’t have a date for being online as there are still some bits to work through with LL.
We can assure you its worth the wait.
The parcels we have on Visionary isle will be kept even when our new regions are online.
These will take on the role of a teleport to the DOR welcome center on new regions and also a free place to fly.
The DOR 2014 group will be open to invites once the sims are closer to opening.
In the meantime you can Fly Here at visionary isle (no Combat) or at Vicksters New Bastogne sims and Barrys sims.
Please respect their rules and way they do things.
Any “drama” caused through our members on these sims will be taken into account when we open DOR 2014 to invitations.
We apologise for the long wait
DOG & Trinka –2013
[2014/04/12 13:58] Mal (malcious.vuckovic): Specially with your 100+ sim region yet to materialize
[2014/04/12 13:59] DOG (da.admiral): it will be ordered next week or wek after if im not in hospital that time i see surgeon your tuesday
[2014/04/12 13:59] DOG (da.admiral): gtg
[2014/04/12 13:59] Mal (malcious.vuckovic): Good luck in Surgery
Concerning sims and expanision, I know we have made promises to many about sims we have not kept so far. That does not mean that the plans are not still the same. With Dons Health issues and to some degree mine this has taken a lot longer then I wanted. Please keep the faith on sims and one day we will be enjoying them.
I still havn’t ordered the region’s yet, its not LL’s fault or banks but it is mine.
I have been observing those who have been using our airfield, showing up at dances & supporting Vickies regions.
When I order our region’s these are the people we want with us.
I’m not interested in supplying a super flying estate to those who havn’t got the energy to support us.
In fact i don’t really want them on our regions.
Because I am carrying the cost of these regions personally I’m not really concerned about traffic or revenue from them, this is not a commercial enterprise.
SL is full of self appointed experts and people who think we can not survive without them.
Or the only way we can do this is with their vision implemented into the estate.
Well guess what, I would prefer it if these people stayed at mainland or the other region’s, they have very little knowledge and seldom ever contribute to running costs of a region.
In short they are takers or what in my native land we call bludgers.
Trinka, Vickster and myself will be the powers on our regions (in short little SL god’s) if this dosn’t suit anyone I suggest they look elsewhere to play.
As for for a eta for ordering the regions it may be tomorrow, it may be next week, I will decide that.
So please Trinka’s and my loyal friends bear with us a little longer.
Sorry if this sounds a bit dictator like or harsh but is way past time SL aviation was told some home truths.
Even had the cheek to charge a yearly subscription for early access to this Mythical continent.
becuase of the cost we ask that Dor members pay a L$2,000 donation to have early acsess to the new Dor 100+ sim region. This will be a yearly subscription nd you will get invited to the new Dor group.
End of 2014
Before it all finally ended with.
Please stop im’ing Don about the new regions. He is very tired and now had a headache. We know they are late but please be paitence it will be worth it
Their last mention of it was some point back in February this year and I don’t think it has been brought up again, I presume everyone was refunded their “yearly subscription” as…
“We never charge money for being part of dor”
Anyway back to me.
[05:45] DA Admiral: you are a despicable little creep.
I should point out these are not snippets of a convo, they are genuinely just random messages I would receive from Princess Da whenever he felt in the mood to dish out the abuse.

[12:48] DOG…Don Admiral (da.admiral): fgaggot
[12:49] Mal (malcious.vuckovic): I will be the prettiest princess there is! (and I was)
For two years Princess Da played the game of insult cat and mouse with me even going so far as to try and call me up and home . I wasn’t the only one, pretty much anyone of note who left DOR was subject to the same level of abuse. Princess Da hated the idea that there existed people who knew about his habit of re-inventing himself that were outside his control and while Princess Da was always quick to shout Woof Bloody Woof and proclaim that DOR was the best pilots in SL and was really all about fun his next notice was never short of the next list of targets as he attempted time and time again to weaponize DOR against the ever increasing threats he saw in his head.
Threats such as product bans.
[12:07] Pazuzu Nakim: Keep in mind who is behind the bans and do not buy their products or visit their sims.
[12:08] Pazuzu Nakim: Why put your hard earned money into the pockets of people who want to try and bully other builders?
[12:09] Pazuzu Nakim: Or the people who choose to fly an aircraft that they do not agree with?
[12:09] Pazuzu Nakim: stop buying the haters products or supporting their sims until they dry up and blow away
Which is a good thing too since:
[05:45] DA Admiral: thank christ you products are not allowed on DOR, Aeon is an Angel compared to you,.
[08:41] DA Admiral: simpkle my sims my rules end of story
[08:42] Malcious Vuckovic: So you just want to ban Joe’s products “Becuase you say so”
[08:42] DA Admiral: they are banned
[ 08:42] DA Admiral: I can if I want
[08:43] DA Admiral: yes they wont be promoted sold or allowed to enter in competitions at DOR
[08:43] Malcious Vuckovic: Why?
[08:43] DA Admiral: tell him to go get cuddles from anmok
[08:45] DA Admiral: hes a turncoat who forgot who the hell he is and attacked shana so fuck joe sparrow
[08:45] DA Admiral: i will not allow you to compete with shana
You can go ahead and add “Hypocritical” to his list of Bullshit if you want.
Today the threat is the secret Monopoly trying to be installed by the likes of Joe Sparrow and Tank Kwaszes by banning Dani products from two Airports, yesterday it was MCE and like leaflets from a Doomsday Cult hundreds of notecards depicting MCE as some cruel and unusual Punishment filled the skies and minds of anyone who would listen. Prior to that it was mesh and DOR played host to the first “anti-mesh” sim and protest group who’s existence seemed to consist of glaring angrily at Aeon Voom whenever he was around. Before that it was Flying Tigers, New Bastogne and other ‘combat communities’ that would tear this community apart with their win-at-all-costs elitism, before that it was Aeon Voom himself, before that is was player poaching and well, you get the idea.
MCE aside, which we’ll talk about a different day, The problem with any of these “threats” is there are all Hypothetical. When Princess Da warns the Community about the secret attempts by non-Shana companies to Monopolise the Aviation Market, he doesn’t have any proof, he has anecdotal evidence at best by which I mean he can tell a convincing story but offers only guesswork as to why Joe, Aeon or Tank specifically want to ban Dani planes even though they don’t compete with him on any level, specially Joe who’s already made clear he has no plans to expand his range of one plane, Tank who really doesn’t care and Aeon who has expressed no interest in building Airliners to compete with Dani and even went so far as to state he was more interested in stopping the increasing number of people hanging round Honah Lee trying to sell Plane models game-ripped from Warthunder like back-alley traders selling guns and drugs from a brown trench coat.
All of this has had an effect on DOR. In it’s Golden Age of 2012 DOR was the biggest aviation group that has been and probably will ever be on SL with near enough 600 members. It commanded the respect of nearly every other Aviation group and even a number of builders with both Joe Sparrow and Aeon Voom happy to provide free aircraft for it’s members (All since replaced by Shana Aircraft of course). Now it was only earlier this year it celebrated it’s 100th member and today stands at a rather glum 128 people, which also includes the various landowners, invited builders and dignitaries from other communities, a vast number of Alts and anyone who buys a Shana plane (though buying a Shana may no longer get you an automatic invite to DOR, couldn’t find anyone to check for me).
Princess Da, I feel almost sorry to say, is a shadow of the friend I one had. His notices became increasingly erratic and incredibly self-indulgent as we finally entered the month of August 2015 where the shit hit the fan. On the first day we were subject to this notice
Sat, Aug 01 2015 10:06:54 AM PDT
Irish has mentioned SLE may be talking to some of you.
I would be most grateful if none of you discuss DOR business with any SL publication ,./
Fell free top discuss your own activities not DOR ones
And at this point my journalist senses tingle. Screaming “Do no talk to the press” is basically an invitation for me to start prodding things with a stick and scream back “Why what are you hiding?”. SLE or the Second Life Enquirer is one of SL’s oldest Newspapers though it’s hardly known for it’s hard hitting journalism, instead opting to talk about fashion, new shops that are opening and tasteless “state the obvious” opinion pieces full of random poetry and countless selfies. I had planned to investigate a little further into the matter with a little joke on DOR’s expense being that I asked SLE what they wanted to talk to DOR about and found in his Paranoia Princess Da had only denied himself some free publicity.
but then this happened.
After careful consideration and our Discusions with Gin Beamish Don and I are sadly announcing we are in no position right now to continue our DOR Sims at Seychelles.
I have attached a notecard with what is happening described. Gin will be furnishing 4 sims for our group. Our officers will take over the day to day running of DOR. Please continue to donate to Gin to help her keep us going until we recover from our present health problems. A complete list of officers will be announced.
Please read the note.
Officers not to Contact Until Don and I are healthy again
Fair enough I thought, DOR’s ran out of money again, wouldn’t be for the first time. But this was followed by post after post after post of Self-congratulate bullcrap proclaiming that DOR was the best and urging everyone to donate.
I want to personally thank all those that answered the call to keep DOR and Seychelles Isles Battle Sims alive for another month. I am very impressed with the level of dedication and commitment you folks have. This is rare in SL and I honored to have you with us. Those that contributed to saving the sims have asked me to keep their names private so for the private few, we are grateful.
Also, I want to wish both Don and Trinka a speedy recovery. We all care for you hope to see you back soon.
Woof Bloody Woof!
Re Irish’s post about the support given by DOR over this trying time.
He is so right about DOR, we are a very special collection of people and its great to see that recognised. Thanks for the Post Irish.
Trinka and I will be back in the swing of things again as soon as we are able.
In the meantime “keep the home fires burning team” you are the best of the best.
This is just a note to thank all of you who have aready helped securing the sims for this month. We have a great family here. Many of you who wish to donate to help us further may do so at the LM given. We would like to place things on an even more secure footing with folks who might be able to donate a monthly amount. Any wishing to help us should contact Gin (starylight) or myself.
I’m truly amazed at how our family has pulled together in this time of difficulty.
On and on it went. I heard stories that DOR users had managed to raise over 125k lindens to keep DOR alive, according to the donation boxes and I was impressed, I genuinely was but for some reason it wasn’t enough.
There has been a lot of things happening in these last few weeks. The end of the month will be the end of Dor’s sims in the Seychelles area. We tried and were not successful at raising the funds needed to maintain those sims in Seychelles. In order to keep our family together, we’ve taken a standalone homestead sim which is open for combat, flying, sailing, airplane soccer, and relaxing in. The base sim is ready for you all to use, but some tweaking still remains.
Special thanks are due to Don, Trinka and Gin for their hard work in Seychelles as well as countless restarts at all hours of the day for for our events. With everything going on in DOR lately, I’d like to reassure you that our family is stronger than ever.
See you at the dogfight!
Now wait a moment I said. 125k and they can’t even keep a few of the sims open? I became suspicious and I made enquires. According to the people I spoke with at Seychelles DOR was already three months behind on it’s rent and despite a number of plans proposed by IrishGent to save DOR by consolidating down sims, co-operating with Luke and the Flying Tigers to pull in resources and even and offer to wave off part of DOR’s debt but Princess Da would have none of it and choose himself ,this is according to the Seychelles isles estate manager I spoke to, to shut down DOR.
So I asked the question “what happened to the Money?” and apparently I wasn’t the only one. A lot of people got suspicious and finally about a week ago this happened.
I have just found out that for some reason Don Received a E mail today that his account was removed from Second Life. No Explanation was given and we are trying to find out what is going on.
For the time being he will be on AviWorld and has the equivalent of 200 sl regions there.
Please do not leave group as i will keep you posted on what is going on with his account.
Now an account removal is different to a suspension. In the case of a suspension you are simply prevent from logging in, you receive a warning notice and an email telling you the reason for your suspension and when you can log back in. A removal is done without warning, you are immediately logged off and your account is deleted which is exactly what happened. There are very few reasons why LL would do this as this is normally a punishment left to greifers, hackers, Age players and those subject to a lawsuit. However there is one other reason and that is Fraud.
Now this is my opinion and I need to remind you it is JUST a guess. But claiming you have no money, asking for donations and then when you get those donations keeping the money for yourself and refusing to use it for it’s intended purpose, even when other help is offered, is probably considered quite serious fraud.
This would collaborate to previous “questionable” statements made by Princess Da for example the claim to be the Father of former SL Aviation Legend Toni Silverweb, who planned to use the Millions he had made in the Storage and Haulage industry to build the Legacy she was trying to hard to achieve. Yet those “millions” vanish every few months when Don finds himself rushed off to hospital to have his leg amputated for the 6th time and only through your kind donations can DOR be saved.
Both Trinka and I still are dealing with RL medical issues, so support of the regions through use and donations at this time are important. Once Again Team Thanks for the great support, it makes us so proud to be part of your team.
Pinky & DOG.
As most of you know Don and I have struggled with Health Problems over the past year. Even with that we have tried to have sims available for you to fly during this period. Don entered the hospital today and we just cannot be sure how much time and how many operations it is going to take fo fix his legs. We have closed most of our dor sims with the exception of a few on the mainland. We are keeping the group and we like always will fight our way back with new sims when things are better. Remember we need your donations now more than ever. Every little bit helps
Or help pay his “medical” bills
As you know Don is going through a lot of dangerious opperations to fix his legs. He is carrying the cost of these sims on his own shoulders and now has to find extra money for his hospital bills. We do not ever ask you pay to be part of Dor so Donation thermometer have been placed and it is greatly appreciated.
Thanks to those who continue to support us so generously.
[00:00:54] <Redacted>: the few remaining DOR sims all have donation meters asking for you to pledge your support to help pay Don’s medical bills
[00:01:14] <Redacted>: Don lives in new Zealand which has free medical care
[00:01:23] <Redacted>: he is the lowest of the low#
Princess Da is back in SL under his new account name OscarMonster and despite having no money to pay for SL’s rent he was bought the equivalent of 200 sims in a Second Life rival grid call AviNation (he’s not lying they are there, go check) and has heavily hinted that this will be the future home of DOR. AviNations doesn’t have a good physics engine and no aircraft builders so exactly what DOR intends to fly once it gets there is unknown to me.
Though something else to consider here too. Between all the nonsense, behind every attempt Princess Da has made to weaponize the patrons of DOR against whatever new thing was grabbing his attention, DOR itself continued on, often oblivious to what it’s Supreme Leader was up to. It’s officers and more dedicated patrons organised events, made prizes, ran groups, encouraged each other and essentially did nothing more than a group of friends just having a good time. With all that it has shown in it’s willingness to keep the group afloat through donations DOR could decide right here and now that it doesn’t need Princess Da and all of the bullcrap mentioned above and rather than re-form under his tainted banner; instead become the group DOR was supposed to be. a group of well-to-do Aviators who’s Philosophy is Fun. Not much caring about Drama or SL Aviation in general. What they want is to get into the air and have a good time fucking about in Planes doing whatever, Dogfights, Hanger Hockey, Pylon races, Ground Target contests etc etc Essentially everything I’m always bitching that the rest of Aviation should be.
That Can’t be too much to ask.
 Aside from write the rules, the DOR code and mission statement, organise several events, handle their admin training, solve an exceptional number of disputes between members and get them the support of Joe Sparrow from Astral-Tek who created and donated a vast horde of freebie’s including provide fighter jets.
 Shana Day was a one and-never-repeated (as far as I’m aware) day where all Shana products were placed at 25% off to all DOR members, Shana flags were hung and specific Shana-only events were organised. It was kinda like a slightly shit Christmas as I recall.
 If or not Trinka (Princess Da’s SL Wife) was aware of just how many of the Dor Angels were invited up to P’Da’s personal love shack I’ll never know.
 Alright there was some Drama concerning sim called New Ravenloft and a Pirate Hooker sim Princess Da slapped on next to it but if I were to explain all this things he “gone did” we’d be here all day.
 Trinka apologised for him because of his behaviour here and he was catechized for it.
 Back when we were friends a select number of the DOR admins had my number for “emergencies”. Now you know who my restraining order was against, and you thought you could stop me with a few nasty comments, Ha!
[16:39] DA Admiral: Stopped crying yet?
