Discussion last Tuesday at LnL!

Last Tuesday, we met in the new LnL Lounge (check out the cool photo London took! Thank you! The Lounge looks so sooooo beautiful and according to all it is friendlier for camera movements! :)). The topic at hand was "License to be rude?! - behaviour in Second Life!". Second Life is in many ways a showcase of human behaviour. It potentiates creativity, social relations, communication skills. It mirrors our inner realities and it reflects how we react. It also opens the door to... disrespect and vulgarity. Everyone agreed that there are a few social rules most follow in Second Life despite the fact that anonimity opens the door to behaviours most would not have in Real Life. Attitudes of lack of respect and a simple hello as one enters a place seem to be less likely to happen. Some mentioned women would be a target of harassement more easily in SL although others did not agree entirely. The group also talked about newbies in SL being the object of a certain indifference from old-residents, which could also be seen as a lack of social awareness. Banlines discussed too - some defended they were very annoying and rather useless in SL, since no one would steal anything away, while others contended the right to privacy. One of the main problems in SL is the the way people talk to one another. All agreed that speech is extremely important, sometimes the only means of communication in SL as many do not use voice, and that tactleness inevitable drives to the infamous "drama"! To end on a positive note, all defended that patience, good communication and civility from all would certainly make things change! Meet us next Tuesday at 2pm SLT in the new LnL's Lounge for a different topic and a lively discussion with a friendly and awesome group! :)
