  1. Seriously?
    Big mistake, i would not let them into the main grid, so much bad stuff can happen, some people still do adult things in mature and some times even PG areas.
    This is probably the dumbest thing LL has ever done EVER!
    Get ready for major law suits by parents and the end of second life, they are gonna get suede so hard for this.
    So hard that they will lose any and what little money they have.

  2. what blind fools

    should be the biggest spot on the internet…especially these days….

    poor management, marketing and publicity

  3. They need to just make it an adult world anyhow, and ban all underage people, period.. it’s what i been saying they should do since day one!
