The End of Anonymity, Part II

Just don’t expect that people will tolerate you any more.

The usual argument that is brought up with my “over-reaction” on the imminent lack of privacy and anonymity is that SL is huge, and that people not wishing to reveal any RL data will still have their place somewhere in the grid, and that there is no real reason for worry. Also, as SL grows (and it certainly grows!), there will be more and more spaces for the privacy-conscious to visit — and not less.

This is certainly correct in absolute terms. However, there is a significant difference, and I think I have not been very clear in pointing it out.
