I still think those two confuzzled peepz with their Second Life, Real Life and WoW marriage (and divorces) deserved to be scorned, for the bad daylight they put both Second Life and it’s users in. I still believe that all those badly researched articles about SLex and teledildonics (take a look at the comments here) are cheap and only written because sex sells. But err… seems it’s doing some good for our Grid too: new user signups are skyrocketing (finally, again)
On Plurk Dandellion reports: “Help Islands full of people. Been asked for a date twice, one guy wanted to know where he can find romance.” We’re not sure yet if that’s a more realistic question than ‘How can I get rich here?‘, but it is a funny thing: just say that one can fuck up their own life and there is an army of noobs coming to the grid. Quite ironic, no?
So in the next few days, don’t be surprised if n00bs ask about a/s/l (age/sex/location) in stead of Second Life Stock Exchanges.
If you are a mentor, make sure you have a landmark to both SexGen and xCite shops in your inventory to hand out to those enquiring new residents! We better make sure they find a mate and buy land and a house and skins and fashion and… basically, let’s abuse them to boost our SLeconomy, shall we? :D Luckily views on my Don’t hold Second Life Responsible! blogpost are sky-rocketing too, so hopefully some will get the message we’re not all like that.
Accompanying graphic honestly stolen from Miss Tateru Nino who brings this story to Massively: ‘Divorce news brings surge of Second Life signups’. (As usual, better researched and more serious article than mine.)
