I am online at SL now since the beginning of March 2009 and it's funny to see how by even entering this virtual world the power of blood can't be resisted. Yes I write in rl too but with one difference. In rl I make money with it :p And no, English isn't my native language but being in SL is a great way to improve that.
I come and go in SL and will write here only about my experiences in SL.
This picture shows u a clear example of the TMS. They always show up looking as if they have been crucified and it occurs with men and women in SL. These kind of people make a great show of suffering in order to arouse other people's sympathy. In their profile they vent about their virtues. In conversation they will always talk about how bad people treat them here and how cruel rl is on them. If you are in for a one way conversation or you want to play a good samaritan these are the perfect people to talk with. You only have to "nod" or "hmm" to give them the time of their life. Be careful with adding them to your friendlist because whenever they see you online they will IM you.
