Thank you for the pointer to Mr. Carey's blog and that entry in particular! I hope all have seen his excellent video about Second Life on reason.tv that you mentioned in an earlier post--the man gets what SL is all about.

If you are known in the real world, SL represents a retreat where nobody recognizes you, they're not asking for autographs or trying to be cool as they casually aim their cell phones in your direction. People don't defer to you or expect you to live up to a character or treat you any differently than they would treat Joe the accountant. You can walk into a strip club without driving the entire tabloid industry into overdrive (though the wife has the right to make snarky comments).

And if Drew Carey wanted to be an anonymous young, hip, soulful steampunky studmuffin, he could be, and nobody would treat him like a chubby funnyman. That's worth the price of admission right there.

For some reason I don't get Crap mariners comment. But I do agree with Melissa that Drew Carey "gets it".. I wish more people would then they wouldn't think im spending all this time just playing a game!
