In 2013 Vice Magazine published a surprisingly accurate summation of the situation
A decade after its launch, the online virtual world of Second Life (SL) has devolved into a realm where digital avatars engage in furry orgies, fraternize in cities where rape is allowed, and dodge flying penises.
For the most part, the world has forgotten about Second Life. While it’s unlikely that SL avatars will once again grace the cover of business magazines, the eccentric community is experiencing a renewed interest thanks to all-around genius trolls such as YouTube user Charlie Winsmore.
Pretty much everyone who made a Secondlife video afterwards were influenced by the little brown guy and secondlife became known as a place to go and make fun of people rather than pretty much anything else.
