There is a very interesting article over at New World Notes now that has some very derogatory things to say about SL Roleplayers (such as you Goreans out there). Here is one of the first sentences:
Online gamers tend to be a rather conservative racist sexist bunch. One does not have to look far to see this.
I got a bit annoyed at this and left the first comment over at New World Notes last night:
I do not think online gamers are a conservative racist bunch. If anything, the ones I know are fairly progressive in outlook. Sorry where is the proof? What independent research can be pointed to? This is gross slander, and frankly, unless some hard evidence can be shown to support this ridiculous claim, does not deserve the attention given to it in this widely read web site.-- Eddi Haskell
Take a look at this article, since SL Roleplay is gaining controversy right now. You can leave a comment there -- it makes for interesting reading.
