I wonder how they'd react to SL Residents banning the in-world agents from parcels and sims...

I'm amazed at the trnechant responses to this article.

The FBI provides a service and a needed one.

@Jay: damned staright.
@SignpostMarv: Meh.

I am amazed at the hatred all over the place in real life (which crosses over to Second Life and facebook and myspace and all the rest.)

Oh well.
C'est la vie I guess.

Jay -- Thank goodness we have the FBI and CIA to do so much of the dirty work that keeps this country safe. Had we hazed a few terrorists in the early part of this decade Americans may not have been placed in the position of deciding whether to allow themselves to burn up or jump out of an 82nd floor window.

As for the benefits of the FBI being in SL, I don't see many; but for PR purposes, why not?

You see:

"Had we hazed a few terrorists in the early part of this decade..."

Your use of the word "Haze" shows how endemic this is in the USA, that you trivialise the torture of foreign nationals by comparing it to college initiation pranks is just wrong.

Heck, even your new president has come out to say "We are an evil nation"

Yep, although to be honest he still is trying to hide the fact of how bad you Yanks are. Just look at his maneuvering and double speak to hide the SBS photos.

How can you honestly be proud of your behaviour? How can you even consider yourselves a world leader?

The rest of the world, even your allies, are laughing at you.

Shouldn't Information on where to find this in SL be included?

This seems to be just a rewrite of the FBI press release including the photo from the FBI website.

They need slurls. You can't fight crime without the slurrrrrrls to the billboards.

Do they realize how big SL is?

And did you know that there are a lot of FBI roleplay groups out there in SL?

Wild! Lets face it, most of SL couldn't pass the entrance psych tests.

We are a freaky bunch and whole world knows it.
