Victims of Virtual Temptations

Getting the best out of the virtual world means also knowing how to deal with the worst. The best is of inspiration, art, sharing with friends, and the building of a culture. The worst is manipulation, greed, and even danger. Perhaps this exemplifies that idealism, as does freedom, comes with a price.

Contrasts from experience cover the range of why virtual worlds are so valuable. Nowhere is this more true than creatively and in connecting. The freedom that artists find in the virtual world is worth every hour spent to master the skills to create anything.

SEDUCTIONS contribute to illusions and time-consuming distractions particularly prevalent in the virtual world. Seduction happens when one person wants something of advantage from another, but that giving is not to the advantage of the giver. In other words, manipulation, scam, or crime. Few, if any, writes about this.

The temptations of the virtual world are many. This article examines them from the in-world point of view, so it is only published in-world. If you would like to read it, please log in and visit the Sim Street Journal office to receive your copy. —Eleanor Medier, publisher
