Virtual real estate tycoon Anshe Chung has been forced to abandon a public forum inside the 3-D online world of Second Life after virtual vandals - known as griefers - launched a phalanx of flying phalluses.

Anshe, a former language teacher from China whose real name is Ailin Graef, was appearing inside the virtual world at an event hosted by the online technology news publisher CNET.

Last month, Anshe announced that she had accumulated virtual assets worth more than $US1 million in real money, making her - by her own claim - the first virtual world millionaire.

"She is very popular, and some people don't like her," said CNET reporter Daniel Terdiman, whose Second Life avatar (online persona), GreeterDan Godel, was interviewing Anshe at the time of the attack.
full story

The media attention that SL continues to generate still makes me frown in despair, which is usually about how so and so made their latest virtual billion. Of course though, now that it is in the spotlight, we end up with wonderful gems in the news about giant floppy penis attacks and journalists quoting Something Awful, with complete links to SA's Second Life Safari. Mmmm, big floppy penis attacks.

    Isn't SL kind of like Sims Online for people with less of a life than people who play Sims Online?

    No one ever assaults me with flying penises. I have to say I'm kind of disappointed.

    Being assaulted by non-flying penises has simply become too... commonplace for you?

    Eve is just one big phallic gang-bang. I have to play in windowed mode and hide it every time my wife comes in the room lest she think I'm watching some sort of gay sci-fi.

    So why do people want her dead?

    people basically hate two things about Second Life:

    1. The unbridled, disgusting, should-be-but-isn't criminal depravity of it.

    2. The pretentious self-aggrandizing bullshit.

    She pretty much personifies the latter. The former? I don't know. But probably.

    I don't want her dead, I just said she doesn't look like that.

    Although I'd probably give her the Danza Slap(tm), given the chance.

    No, I mean, the comments on youtube. Some people hate her with a passion.

    SL is the perfect example of what exactly will happen if we ever technologically develop to the point of full sensory or interactive VR type stuff

    people will first and foremost use it for sexual deviancy that is either physically impossible or completely illegal or both.

    and other people will defend it as "nobody's getting hurt because it's not real therefore it's not a real crime"

    it's getting into some really grey legal territory.
