The sadness of Second Life, if you know any examples. Bad things that have happened in there, stats about why people leave, anecdotes about what's wrong with it, etc.

I'm not suggesting that it's only bad, it's just that it's easy to find a lot talking about why it's AWESOME. I'm looking for counterexamples, is all. There was a post over a year ago
asking what's good about it, but a lot's happened since... for example Warren Ellis' "Shipwrecked And Abandoned"
post. I'm looking for anything qualitative, quantitative, anecdotal, or whatever you've got.
(Again, none of this is to say that SL is only bad or start a debate over it. It's just to get some concrete examples of what goes wrong.)
