Regarding this being a "fake" Second Life account.

I am a resident of Scotland, and under Scottish Law, am entitled to use any name I wish, as long as it isn't for fraudulent purposes.

I'd say more folk know me by this name, than my birth name.

I think so too. Maybe another purge?

Here is another article that talks about what seems to have happened today.

Mine is still there.... I did notice at least one avatar I know is gone though.

Wasn't there some idiot on Twitter awhile ago reporting avatars by the score?

It's my understanding that they threatened to start doing this in '08 but apparently finally followed through today. I would advise anyone with a "page" (musician or otherwise) to add a rl administrator quick before it's too late. If you care, I don't.

What is so amusing about it is that the example they give of a 'Facebook approved' page is owned by a Facebook account of an sl avatar.

Yeah, pretty funny that huh? Who is the administrator after they delete the account? Sure you can add a rl admin, how many in sl really want their rl identity tied to sl? Total bull ...

So all those people that "liked" SL's page with their avatar's page got purged? Brilliant

Btw, I have a "page" for my old rl band. I can tell you without question that there is no way to log into that page directly, you must log your administrator account before you can access it.

/me scratches his head .. so how's this gonna work again?

They'd have to work with LL I suppose. It's also pretty obvious from the "likes" on their page which are avatars.

Well she also has "Fictional Character" under her name. Wonder if the ones that got booted did not do that?

NOTE: I know NOTHING about facebook

If facebook deletes my avatar's account, I still have moolto and slu to socialize on. Still, it's a really stupid idea they have to force you into using your real name. I don't really want to have my real name connected to my second life name. 'Tain't nunna nobody's beeswax.

Apart from the name Sredni Eel, which is obviously not a real name, and unless someone reports me, I figure i can probably make it through the zombie apocalypse tomorrow.

Maybe more people could get away with it if they did not pick SL names like Porkrind Sporkbender.

I do wonder how many of the deleted FB accounts were zapped mostly because they belonged to people with more than one FB account.

Regardless.... "Jopsy Pendragon" on FB is now 'Jopsy Crane'.
