Well, it seems some of the inhabitants of Second Life aren't very happy with the invasion of the Suicide Girls. So much so that they've decided to yell about it on the forums.

Now, for those of you not familiar, there are many SLers who will yell about anything on the forums. Servers down for a update? Yelling. Textures not appearing fast enough? Yelling. It's Tuesday? Totally Linden Labs fault. Yelling.

However, there's been a lot of discussion about Linden Lab using a porn company as a sort of advertising. This finally prompted one of the LL staff to hand down a FAQ on the whole situation.

Along with the following quote:

Please remember that the residents in Second Life with the last name
Suicide are like all residents and deserve to be treated according to
the Community Guidelines and Standards.

There will be more web communities in the future joining Second Life
as we continue to grow and expand and they should be given the chance
to make a home just as we all have.

I am always willing to talk with concerned residents in world and
would ask that you respect other residents’ right to privacy.

There's currently around 90 Suicide Girls in the world, as can be counted by their special last name, "Suicide". I honestly haven't been any of them around the world, and don't really know if they have any plans, but just being there at the moment is enough to be setting some people off. More as we find out.
