THE FUR STILL FLIES

Thanks to the magic of link referrals, readers often visit older stories long after they've been published. Sometimes they leave interesting comments behind, too-- like this new one from "Lizardbeth Lulu", on my April story about Second Life's Furry subculture:

Furry isn't a "religion" for everyone... [i]t needs to be said that there ARE lots of furries who just think animals are cool, and (like myself) have a specific animal as their fav. Some are honestly good role-players, and in spite of online conversations they CAN actually distinguish between reality and fantasy...

Other great posts on furries in particular and the nature of avatar roleplaying in general made it there too, in recent months, so the entry might be worth a second look.
