I can't believe you need a credit card number to register for Second Life--even for the free basic service. I just want to see what it's like. This feels like some book-of-the-month club. Sign up for free with your credit card and we'll only bill you if you don't return your life by the last day of the month. You think they would have left those nasty credit card registration tactics back here in this first life. Anyway, my purse is in the car, thanks, where a purse does not belong--nonetheless it is so. So no second life for me. Note to self: better luck in third life.
