Ok basically I know of this game called "Second Life" from this radio talk show I listen to. Being the curious person I was I used google and read a little about it. Low and behold its basically SIMS for people who want attention. Im guessing a cyber sex paradise for people who are probably socially retarded and or never leave their mothers basement. I learned that people use REAL MONEY (sometimes a good amount of it) just to buy "virtual property" and or "virtual products" for their avatar. Yes you can say that its no different from MMO's where you purchase cash shop items, but this is way out their in the desperate department. It's basically a pedo's paradise considering it doesn't look like they verify age ( no i am not blaming the game for this, the parents are stupid if they let a child play it). Yes theres a childs version apparently... but thats just teaching them that the computer life? In one google search for simply Second Life and clicking on a random number i found a whole list of "Fetish Clubs" and dear god thats disturbing. Is this the end of society as we know it? The beginning of the end?

Lol. You can also earn real money from it so it can't be that bad. ;P

Edit:

My boyfriend made about 20 dollars in it and then they kicked him out because he was just 17.

I just looked into it a little. You have to use a credit card or something to actually cash out for real money? That doesnt change the fact that its a Pedo's Paradise. Definitely now adays since kids have extremely low self esteem with a very high sexual appetite. and if you need to play a video game to make money (aside from tournament people, they are nerds and they love it) there is something wrong with you.

Well if they aren't hurting anyone and they enjoy it, then I don't see anything wrong with it. It's because of people calling them pathetic and thinking that something is wrong with them that they are social outcasts in the first place, so looking down on them in that way just encourages them to behave that way.

LOL WTF There's a game like that? Your REAL life must be really terrible if you want a second one lol

Any place can be pedo's paradise, at least they only allow 18 years olds to join. It doesn't matter if they check the age or not, I believe it wold be illegal to lie about your age and if kids join it is their own fault. When they are found out they will be kicked from the game. And who said that they NEED to make money, why not chat with your friends and have fun when can you get money from doing it. I think those people would be smart if before everything else. Much smarter than those who play some other game that you can't get money from.

Or is having fun pathetic nowadays?

An MMO... where you can't kill shit. How very fascinating.

If you are like a flying insect attracted to a bright light. Fun for a while, but becomes dull with all the repetition.

Play an MMO, join a chatroom, ride a subway, spend a few hours in a club. People are drawn to gather in crowds. All sorts and kinds.

I've been playing sl for 4 years off and on. If kids get on, their parents should stop shitting around and watch what kids r doing. Sex is not all that we do we hit the clubs go shopping in a mall hang wit friends make new ones and shoot shit up at combat sims

I think Second Life is more benign than the OP made it seem. I haven't played it, but I know a coworker and a classmate who do an both are well adjusted to my knowledge.
