In case you don't have time to read that long article Alwin linked to:

Avatars heavily loaded with wearable items and textures are one of the main - perhaps even the main cause of lag in Second Life today and can in extreme (very extreme and rare) cases even be heavy enough they crash your computer.

To counter this, Linden Lab recently introduced a "filter" that removes the avatars deemed too laggy to be safe from your computer screen, replacing them with monochrome silhouettes. It's far from perfect and tends to filter out quite a lot of "safe" avatars too but it's better than nothing and although you can turn it off, you don't want to.

 

(Edit: of course it is possible their avatars actually do look that way but that's unlikely, there aren't that many Jellybaby avatars out there.)
