    British legal experts question whether the lax oversight of the online community Second Life could potentially create a haven for criminals and terrorists.

    A report from Britain's Fraud Advisory Panel found that the limited regulations within the "virtual online community" could lead to money launderers and terrorists using it as a crime locale

    I read this in the paper the other day. Its not really a big issue, most of these problems can be fixed by adding in some more laws and rules to the virtual world.

    Its a virtual game for crying out loud roker. I'm all for relaxing what people tell me I can and can't do but this isn't a website which contains facts and figures or knowledge the government don't want us to have, its a game being exploited by criminals.

    Its not a peadaphilia issue on second life, its a money laundering one. Maybe you should have read some articles on it.

    Second life is a perfect target for this as it won't require too much hard work on the part of the criminal - even if there is a clamp down what is stopping a person having multiple accounts, and creating a web through which they can transfer the money?

    Same goes for any MMPOG that uses real money.
