    Deleted my account for "advertising"

    Former blogger for Second Life virtual world. ~ Had my account revoked after I was told my blogging was "advertising", even though 100's of other users do the exact same thing. Years of work down the tubes. Will never use it again. ~ Note: They are doing this to push for "PRO" memberships, because the company is hurting for money.

    πŸ‘ Pros:    Free to start, until you gain too much popularity.|Good for casual use.
    πŸ‘Ž Cons:    Spam|Abundance of advertising|Photostream hijacking by ads|Horrible customer service.
