New residents drop into the center of that platform. When Social Island 1 gets too crowded, new residents are diverted to Social Island 2. There's even a Social Island 3 if the influx is too great. Up until recently, new residents would be met by trolls and griefers who were using the new Social Islands as a hangout location. But the Mentor and helper groups are sending people there too, and those people write Abuse Reports against nudity and assault and griefing. And - SURPRISE! - reports indicate that Linden Lab is responding and banning the offenders. If this continues, the first people a new resident meets in SL may be someone who will help them to learn about Second Life rather than someone who will push them around while shouting obscenities. Wouldn't that be an encouraging development?

But that's not true. The same horrid griefers, wall-sitters, trash-talkers, assholes were filling the place when I was there. There were no mentors or helpers, and I'm not sure we need to repeat that whole era of mentors leading newbies to their stores and rentals. Not sure the spandex gang are needed either. The Lindens need to circuit ride and use their eject buttons. When the Lindens are ready to allow advertising, then they will have a world. While they persist with the technocommunist approach, they will keep losing customers.
