Are SL users ethnocentric?

A fascinating discussion on SL as one of many multiplayer experiences can be found at raphkoster.com – if you’re interested in sociology (and who wouldn’t be!) then have a read through. The premise of the article is that SL residents could perhaps learn a lot of useful lessons from other MMOs.

Ethnocentrism is an issue i both SL and RL – I actually believe the ethnocentrism that occurs within SL is pronounced. I mean, this site essentially exists to spport one group within SL. Is that a bad thing?
