Something to read, especially for those who wish to write about someplace they’ve never been.

I have a difficult enough time explaining to, um I guess I’ll call them outsiders, for lack of a better term, what exactly I *do* in Second Life. They smile and nod when I say that I log in nearly every day, and sometimes there are looks of concern when I further explain that I spend hours inworld.

Having articles that sensationalise something that is pretty tame really (unless imagination frightens you), and knowing that the writer is just making clickbait, is pretty frustrating. The Web is better than this, and we know it.

Thanks, Inara, for saying what needs to be said. Thank you, reader, for clicking that link and sharing it.
