sllogoRecently Second Life has been suffering from “destructive, malicious activity”. Read the blogpost about it here at the Second Life blog: Security and Second Life. If they want to make a model of the real world, there should be tough Scarfaces and criminals right? Your world, your imagination right? Or maybe not?

A remark by Michael just came back to me: Did you already start that career as Second Life bum?

    I’m practicing on the outside first. :) maybe it should be the other way around?

    It’s safer on the inside.

    I say on the outside is better, because as a reallife bum you could put your money in Second Life!

    I can hear the people in the year 2020:
    “No, don’t give that bum any money, he’s probably going to spend it on his Second Life addiction!”
