Discussion: To escape the claws of RL or simply live another reality?

Thursday LnL Discussion Lounge gathered a group of discussers to talk about “escaping” into Second Life (SL), its positive and negative aspects. It was interesting to see that the term “escaping” was almost immediately challenged by some. The term may be seen to encompass a negative connotation. Other discussers did feel that they “escaped” into SL, because it offered them a “reality” where they could overcome difficulties, health and social issues, etc. Everyone agreed that SL is a way to connect to other people, to be creative and in many ways become empowered. Those who use SL as a way to “escape” Real Life soon find that it is a temporary fix only and sometimes even a plateau where one has to face bullying, stalking and insecurity. Educating people about the resources they have available in SL to avoid these issues is fundamental. Join us next week for a new topic!
