Last Thursday, LnL met to discuss the age verification process in Second Life (SL). The new process simply implies checking a box, filling out your date of birth and voilá you're age verified. This is certainly not an effective way to deter a child/teenager from logging in as an adult and having access to adult sims/content. As inefficient as it is, the age verification process, according to the general opinion, still exists in order for Linden Lab (LL) not avoid becoming liable. Nowadays young people easily bypass procedures designed to safeguard them. So, it was pointed out that parental guidance is fundamental, but when that does not happen, in reality, it's up to sim owners to define the sim's rules and inforce them. Many questions come up about age verification. At the moment, there is no effective system of verifying age in SL. Let's hope LL finds ways of regulating its activity regardless of the uselessness of the current age verification method. Join us next Thursday, at 2pm SLT, for a new discussion at LnL's Discussion Lounge.
