Linden Lab forces Adult content into a different region in Second Life.{my title}

Later this year, parent company Linden Lab will create a standalone "continent" for adult content, and members who don't purchase private "land" will be asked to migrate there if they wish to partake in adult-related activities. Second Life is an 18+ environment already, but stricter age verification policies will be put in place. You'll need a "verified" account, either through credit card information or through Linden Labs' filtering system, to get into the adult "continent."

Members will be asked to start flagging content as adults-only as part of a new content rating system, which will start to roll out in an update to the downloadable Second Life client that will be available next week.

I don’t get the whole Second Life thing. What is the big attraction?

Well it’s like World of Warcraft but without the monsters.

And i know too that there are various nightclubs in it as well and places that play music.

And if somepeople are good they can earn money from it.

Of course not everyone,because most people seem to think all you need to do is just put a store in a mall,but you have to market yourself in it.

I am not a Second Lifer.

But a couple of the people that I work with are. I didn’t know it until I started asking what it was.

The site makes money selling nonexistant land, business, furniture, etc. This is bought with non-existant money (bought with real money). What a racket.

And I guess people that are unhappy with their lives are willing to pay that price to create a happy, magical world.

The concept scares me.

I have been toying with the idea of trying it for a while and just created an account.
