Sl is dieing; SL cannot seem to have more than 70k concurrent on at one time. SL is now a dinosaur, with the Open Sim platforms making leaps and bounds. Being their revenue base is slipping (who wants to pay fricken 300 for a sim, when they can pay 50???), banner ads are the ONLY way to keep SL alive now. Just wait, my guess is we will start seeing RL advertisements/billboards on Linden Lands soon.
