I know in the past I've taken the piss out of SecondLife and all the numbnuts who waste their lives as fucking avatars with either big tits or huge "John Henry's... Well seems I was right (No surprises there. "The LA Times ran a story yesterday saying that marketers are pulling out of Second Life, primarily because — surprise, surprise — the more than 8 million residents' figure on the game's Web site is grossly inflated. Also, as it turns out, the virtual world's regular visitors — at most 40,000 of them online at any time — are not only disinterested in in-world marketing, but actively hostile to it, staging attacks on corporate presences such as the Reebok and American Apparel stores. Well, duh... Why would you think these wankers would be interested in your pathetic products when they can't even get dressed and go to fucking work? The companies aren't giving up on virtual worlds altogether, though, but moving on to games like There, Gaia Online and Entropia Universe. The article also contains some commentary from a marketing executive who conducted an informal survey of the game and discovered that 'One of the most frequently purchased items in Second Life is genitalia.' Well, no surprises there!!!
