If it's typical, it would mean a slight dip in the growth.
Anyway, some gamblers are in-world, pretending to be Linden Detectives, threatening people about their sploders - and that's from a trusted source and 'victim'.
(small tip: there are no Linden Detectives endorsed by Linden Lab.)

Don't be so naive. The "gambling ban" is just a bunch of words LL is using to cover their backs in the face of the eventual lawsuit. The Lindens might make a few high profile busts or turn a few names over to the authorities but the truth is gambling will continue to go on in plenty of underground locations. Not to mention the rampant money laundering (ever wonder why countries like the Cayman Islands rank SO high in the metrics for "most time spent online per capita").

People will just ignore the ban in the same way that they ignore the laws about illegal downloads. This is a PR tactic to appease people who don't really understand how SL works. If LL says there is no gambling in world then obviously there must be no gambling. lulz

The interesting thing to notice is that the number of concurrent users, like Tateru Nino reports on her blog has really not decreased "dramatically". The new signups grow linearly, as usual — no changes there. It's only the "active users in the past 60 days" that seem to be decreasing ever so slightly, or, at least, finding a plateaux between 1.7 and 1.8 millions.

Still, it seems that the Big Casino Shutdown did not really affect things much!

I wouldn't think it would effect population much. Only the hardcore gamblers who spent there lives in SL just gambling would leave. The others I'm sure have friends and fun beyond gambling, so it wouldn't be too much of a lost.

However I doubt people are too upset. At least they won't be losing their money and it might be wake up call to quit the addiction.

I used to play at Extreme Casino's free slot events, was alot of fun. But now I'm making much more building and selling things then I ever did gambling, and it's even more fun.

For those who never got a chance to get the game when it was first released last year, Sony's Playstation website has just put up a downloadable demo for their title Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror, just like they said they would. Anyway, if you happen to be unfamiliar with this game, or would like to introduce this title to a friend, now's your chance.
The game follows the exploits of the special operative Gabe Logan, who is sent to investigate the mysterious activities within an Alaskan oil reserve. However, our hero finds out that he has barely just scratched the surface of a vast, international plot that may put the lives of millions of people in danger.
Now, we're not gonna spoil it for you in case you haven't looked up the entire plot on Google yet. However, we do have to warn you that the demo will require FW3.11, so if you're the type who dislikes upgrades, you might want to consider installing the necessary homebrew application onto your PSP first. Otherwise, go ahead and download the demo, take a dip and see if this game is your cup of tea.
Get it at the http://www.psp-downloads-home.com>psp downloads blog.

advantages and disadvantages of the different online casinos, as my site with my signature.

With, of course, that the most appropriate solution for the best online casino to visit

some of these sites and see what advice they have to say about all the online casino you

are interested in.
You can also search on Google for some of these sites on-line discussion for the casino

If you research on the different online casinos of the first things you should check the

license agreement for software and games. Find out where in the world of business,

licensing for their online casino and do a search on Google software developers to see if a

legitimate business. Some online casinos, you must download the software on your computer,

if you want to play, but as we now know all material downloaded from the Internet onto your

hard drive can be risky, because it can be infected by viruses, spyware and so on. very

careful to know which button to download and once downloaded from the Casino, you should

scan with your anti-virus, to ensure that this is not a body of something that you do not

like.
An important point is the method of withdrawal, most companies use legitimate payment

such as PayPal, credit cards and other payments based web. Check the policy for payment to

see how long it would take for your winnings. Also, for online casinos, best bonus sign.

Most of them offer incentives for entry for potential customers in its online casino, so

that these requests for higher premiums. Another thing worth mentioning is that online

sign that they are interested, as future customers.
