Complete uselessness.  Talk about people without a life!  Maybe that's
why they need things like Second Life in the first place.

Kudos to you for not falling into the gutter with so many of your
generation.  These things might be fun the first time, but they get old
very fast.

BTW, I don't have Windows or OSX and I can view that site just fine.
Not that I will be using any of the services.  I've opted out of IM.
It's bad enough that I have a phone.
