Why you judge when you don’t know?
It’s raining bad comments for Second Life and its residents….and i’m writing this being not only sad but also dissapointed.The title of the link on sweetsecondlife that caught my eye yesterday while browsing was “Lancia to Launch car in Second Life,before First Life”. Working for a Commercial Park in Second Life where many real life companies promote their products , i got interested on reading the article.Bad decision….
Ok,Lancia is doing a promotion of her new car in SL.Good so far.And other car industries did this in the past.Ok,no big news.
The nasty part is the comments of the readers of jalopnik.com (a site about cars) where this was posted (link directly to the article above or here).Some are showing complete ignorance about sl (which is more than acceptable) and some are simply mean!Which is what i really don’t get!
If you have less than 5 min of free time and read all the comments,you will understand what i’m talking about.
*Some of the people commenting on this are so passionate about all us sl residents getting a real life….How strange!I have one!Am i a freak?And may i guess…. you have a real life too?So, what are you doing here?Oh,we’re also all so poor here in SL ,nobody can’t afford a Lancia!And yes!Sex is the only thing we’re interested about!Oh my,all we do here is walk and fly?Did you know that?I no longer wonder why i’m so tired every night,i fly and fly and walk and fly…..
I hate this bad criticism, coming from people being in complete ignorance of what almost 2 million people from all over the world share in this community (considering the 60 last days logins on login page-please correct me for summary of residents-i’m ignorant myself on this).If i have to speak for myself and only,and in case someone who doesn’t know what Second Life is about reads this,it has given me the opportunity to expand my creativity in so many ways you …will never understand!Not to mention i have made friends here that i never dreamed of having.So many great people creating and sharing and working together!
And ….please remind me again-what’s the meaning of being just mean anyway? A company is showing a car in a game (as you call it-i have a different opinion,it is not a game for me).And let’s say you don’t know anything about this game.Would it be more natural to just ask “what is this?” than judge the people who use it?whatever purpose?I still don’t get it.
Oh,you know i could also go further and speak about people who don’t even have the ability to walk in real life and Second life (and not only Second life) has given them the chance and the joy of communication and creation !But this would make you feel guilty maybe?So, i’d better not do it?You see,i don’t get mean just to be mean,cause i see nothing fair to this!And for noone…
*Forgive my poor english once more…and consider this as my official participation to drama posting-promise to not do it often-lol
