With (part) of the Second Life forums closing down, some of the few hundred regular readers of the forums were very worried that Linden Lab was somehow limiting their “freedom of expression”.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Most of SL’s residents live in free countries with freedom of expression being one of their constitutional rights — and this naturally mean that most of us are able to set up our own means to express our opinions. We don’t need Linden Lab to act as a guiding parent!
A side-effect of shutting down the forums is that obviosly this encouraged literally hundreds of people to start their own blogs, websites, and e-Zines. The SLogosphere is booming, and many have blogged on how this change might, after all, be for the better.
