I just spent the last couple hours picking up my stuff in Mieville Poe (in Second Life). It's the end of an era. I built a fantastic plantation there, beautiful New Orleans style buildings and a French Market. It's gone, now. Just gone.

All things come to an end. It just hurts when you put so much energy into something, and it ends. It's the losing of yourself, that hurts.

The loss of self. Yes.

What happened? Why is it gone? I don't know anything about Second Life, but was this a corporate decision or did the environment get too toxic to stick around?

The cost to rent a whole sim (virtual piece of land) is ridiculously high--something like $300 US per month. The man who supports all of the Mieville community in Second Life (which was once 13 full sims), is going to retire in April. As such, he needs to pare down his holdings. Mieville Poe was apparently one of those not making any money, so... it was one of the first to go. Hard reality. Second Life has just priced itself beyond reasonability.
