Thanks to the wonders of the little referral page tracker in my blog toolkit, I can watch whole online communities discovering Second Life, and discuss the experience in their forums. (I'm still mystfied why I get a few referrers every year from the forums of Shonen Knife, the adorable Japanese pop punk girl band.) Lately I've been peeking at a topic on the message boards of Penny Arcade, the venerated hardcore gamer site. You want a glimpse of what gamers more familiar with traditional MMORPGs make of Second Life, this may be your place to start. I'm especially fond of SL Resident Dominic White's scaborously opinionated precis for Arcade readers, which ends, concisely, thus: "In summary, SL: It's full of Internets."

Hamlet, you've entirely upset my conviction that you have no sense of humour with this one! My favourite line from this bulletin board is this:
"I figure it's my last ditch if I don't get a new job by January - invest in Second Life and start designing and selling virtual ladies smalls with novelty built-in physics."
