Whatever can be said in favour of SL and our SLives here and our virtual friends, it does cause problems.
One particular problem I have just been presented is distance. We meet people from all over the world in here. We develop friendships. And then something happens to the other person in RL and there is just nothing at all we can do to help.
When a friend is unexpectedly told she's got health issues and SL becomes an insignificance to her, how can I help her when we're over 8,000 miles apart?
You know who you are. I'm thinking of you.
