LL made it against SL's TOS to use 3rd party exchnages in May 2013, except their own Lindex exchange. That's why. You even reported on the beginnings of it here: http://nwn.blogs.com/nwn/2013/05/linden-dollar-terms-of-service-change.html

After this, Linden quickly turned around and introduced the "authorized L$ reseller" program, as described here: https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Featured-News/More-Options-for-Buying-Linden-Dollars/ba-p/2011355 which allowed authorized exchanges to sell Linden dollars (but not accept them for exchange in the other direction).

This all happened much earlier than the 5 months ago that you're reporting here. The more recent change linked to in your post was the conclusion of the "authorized reseller" program, finally preventing exchange in either direction.

The fact that Bitcoin can't be bought in SL is simply a reflection that exchanges have been following SL's TOS changes introduced in may 2013. It's not a reflection on Bitcoin or any other currency.
