I have approximately 7 years login in SL daily, but now I do it from my 2nd account. I had an unpleasant experience with a malicious person who deleted my account. The important thing is to understand that SL is like a barrel where we submerge and another barrel are the people who live in SL, this barrel must be drunk very carefully, because you can get to the bottom, it has an unpleasant taste. SL is a beautiful place, the platform is not really to blame for what users do in it, you have to live in it responsibly, with caution, to violate community norms that hurt the entire community because the only thing that The violations to the rules brings, they are more controls and restrictions. We users who love this place must be the first observers that things go well. If we do not do that, the day could come (I hope that NEVER happens) that we lose everything. I for my part after losing everything I have committed in this second account that I have made to be the first to denounce those who violate the rules, a person who attempts against the community and his act is unpunished will surely do so in the future and very probably will make things worse and worse. SL deserves honest people, responsible, worthy of being there. I am not talking about "morality" in SL, it is a place to be and act with freedom, but freedom requires responsibility.

Perhaps. But if this is all we expect of journalists covering Second Life, all we'll get are retreads of the same old ground. Second Life is either about sex, or about people either escaping their real life, or expanding their life in ways they can't in real life. As both a journalist, and someone who admits to having been in Second Life for several months, I'd've expected more from her.
